This shoot was conceived by Lovebird Weddings who created the colour palette, concept design and engaged all the suppliers. Lovebird Weddings is a bespoke wedding planning and styling agency based in Noosa, an iconic wedding destination on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.

The concept behind this shoot was to capture the essence of a raw, intimate and natural love story.

We wanted to portray an intimate ceremony with just close friends and the journey they walk together through life. Our bride and groom stood together amongst a wild flower and native grass lined jetty, overlooking the misty dam, with the hinterland rolling in around them. Their friends were seated on raw timber benches with sheep skins draped over them.

The group then gathered beneath a muslin draped tipi, amongst an unstructured secret garden hidden in the depths of the property, where the sunlight trickled through overhanging branches. It was filled with cow hides, sheep skins, cosy throws, large cushions and ottomans, along with a decadent array of sweet pastries and cakes displayed on tarnished silver trays. The group took this time to play naughts and crosses, sing, drink and indulge!

Beneath the tree we hung a macramé hammock, where the couple were able to have a short moment together – just the two of them.

The feasting style dinner was designed to be about the joy of food, flavour and quality time with friends. Pallets were stacked to create a long low set table and soft lace, linens and muslin fabrics were gathered and woven in and out of the pallets for a lovely textured effect. Dimmable globes fell from an overhanging branch and puddled across the table for a delicate lighting element. Atop the table sat unhemmed napkins, clusters of vintage plates and silverware, as well as raw wooden boards which hosted rustic cheeses, nuts, fruits, berries, syrups, honey and herbs for a tapas feast.

To end their day, the group sat around a roaring fire pit and then one by one, they retreated to their own private bell tents.

Showcasing the contemporary style of luxury island dining.


This colour palette features a base palette of Ivory & Crisp White, to which we have added Natural Raw Timbers & Coconut Husk with a sharp pop of Charcoal Black, and complimented by Copious amounts of Lush Natural Foliage & Tropical Greens.

 Our styled shoot takes place at Rickys Noosa, a fine dining restaurant on the Noosa River, and one of the Sunshine Coast’s most stunning waterfront wedding venues.

The ceremony at Access 12 was designed to feel like we were on a deserted island. With just the ocean as the backdrop, a white bamboo arch featuring a lush tropical foliage garland created a focal point and a window to the ocean view. 24 x white and black bistro chairs created the ceremony seating, and held the order of service created from large tropical leaves hand-painted with white script.  A white wooden entry sign with charcoal script tells of the love story about to unfold.

One long table was created beneath the lighting installation at Ricky’s…Our crisp white, hemstitched cloths bathed the timber floor creating a very clean and elegant base to the design. Dark oak Bentwood chairs bought a touch of rich timber to the design, drawing on the tones of the coconut husk. Table texture included the use of tropical foliage in marble vases and shattered coconut husks, which spilled across the centre of the table to create the runner. Glass hurricane lanterns were placed in amongst the table design for ambient lighting after dark. Each place setting included a layering of colours including a creamy main plate, white linen napkin, a charcoal side plate, and a coconut husk name place card.

Overlooking the river, a feature lounge hosted a decadent array of ottomans, carved timber side tables, a round jute rug and linen Chesterfield lounge… A Safari chair created an inviting nook with a corner cluster of tropical foliage. A collection of tropical palms, leaves and ferns in large glass bottles finished this elegant and relaxed lounge area.

Cake Design’s marble cake was placed on a round white Louis table and above it hung 5 single globes amongst a floral halo of tropical greens.
