Classic Grey, Blush and Dusty Blue Inspiration in Brisbane, Australia

We are so excited to share our most recent styled shoot. The businesses involved chose to showcase classic elements through this elegant-themed shoot. The brief was simple: we wanted to approach the shoot like a traditional Italian recipe where respect for key, quality ingredients are each allowed to shine through on their own merit. The colour theme was classic grey paired with dusty blue and blush.

With well-established vendors like When Freddie Met Lilly and Little Duck Calligraphy, in conjunction with Songbird Silk, it was a dream to execute. Francesca’s Flowers specialise in head-turning floral artwork and provided a stunning bouquet and complementary buttonhole. Black Jacket Suiting provided Christopher with a suit that made a statement but also complemented the theme (and Christopher was fitted in record time, too!). Cake My Day By Jo stepped it up with a unique and bold interpretation of a chandelier cake. Hodgepodge Hire provided quality furniture pieces that added a depth of personality to the shoot. Cheyne Finney was our lovely hair and makeup artist and her vision and execution was flawless. Christopher and Megan were an absolute delight to work with and their fun-loving personalities were easy to capture.

Colourful Boho Inspiration at a Fern House in Brisbane, Australia

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! We have been looking forward to sharing this shoot with everyone as it was quite an enjoyable experience. For this shoot, we ran with a colourful brief and threw caution to the wind with the incorporation of fun-loving boho elements. We wanted to incorporate a unique location so we set up the shoot in the Fern House at Mt Coot-tha Botanic Garden. Despite the soaking weather on the day, all the vendors pulled together, embraced the experience, and teamwork proved paramount (especially with lugging the furniture around in the rain). The vendors we worked with can be counted on be it rain, hail or shine!

Our lovely couple, Jayden and Talisha, were easy-going and delightful. Jayden rocked his suit from Black Jacket Suiting, which featured a playful pop of blue floral. Talisha was stunning in her dress from local Brisbane designer label When Freddie Met Lilly. Francesca’s Flowers provided the flower crown, buttonhole and a spectacular bouquet bursting with pops of colour and featuring contrasting textures. Little Duck Calligraphy’s stationery was thoughtfully executed drawing inspiration from colours synonymous with boho, such as can be found in Persian rugs. The table posies were the handiwork of Blooming Blossoms and incorporated wildflowers foraged during a morning walk. Cake My Day By Jo kept the cake simple and colourful and delicious! Hodgepodge Hire provided furniture full of character and boho vibes, as well as the table settings. Cheyne Finney was our lovely makeup artist and her execution was flawless.

Hello! You may have noticed that we have been a bit quiet on our social media front recently. There is a very good reason for this: we have been busy, busy, busy behind the scenes. We have been working with a fabulous team of vendors on a couple of shoots. We can't wait to share all the details soon! For now, however, we are busy editing! We will also introduce you to the vendors so you can learn a little more about them and their individual businesses. The Brisbane wedding scene is huge so we want to help make it feel a little smaller and more personable. You will get to meet some fantastic people. Looking forward to sharing more soon! :-)
