Inspired by the Australian Sunset

Posted in Styling Inspiration, Styled Shoots



Showcasing the beauty in raw materials, layered with earthy hues and enhanced by the natural landscape.

A base palette of Warm Whites… Complimented by Dusky Shades of Pink, Subdued Yellows, Earthy Peaches & Berries… Teamed with Leather, Woods, Gold & Natural Foliage.

Our styled shoot takes place at Maleny Manor, a secluded private estate and one of the Sunshine Coast’s most prestigious wedding venues.

Photographed by Marcus Bell, of Studio Impressions, and complimented with this incredibly powerful film by Lester & May:

The 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 the ceremony was to enhance to undulating view across the valley and out to the ocean. We kept this setting clean with a natural fibre aisle runner lined by a full and indulgent floral feature and crisp white Hampton chairs.

A clear marquee sitting on the edge of the valley showcases a relaxed, yet elegant, dining experience! Featuring timber tables, ceramic plates, copper cutlery, leather napkin ties, metallic hand painted menus inside timber envelopes, hand dyed dusty pink runners, gold candlesticks and lush floral arrangements. Warm fairy lights and a beaded chandelier hanging created soft lighting as the sun set.

The pavilion featured a decadent after-dinner lounge and grazing cake bar. With cigar brown leather chesterfields, carved timber coffee tables, luscious throws & rugs, copper pendant lights and a beautiful selection of cakes on display.
