Who, When, Where
Located in one of Queensland’s hidden gems, we put together a styled shoot with some of the most talented vendors, within the wedding industry. The fairytale-like charm at the heritage-listed Gabbinbar Homestead in Toowoomba added to the princess vibes of the shoot and created a unique atmosphere. Looking back on this beautiful March day, we were able to put together something so special, it’s hard to know where to even begin.
Our couture wedding dresses were captured in the most beautiful way by Lauren Olivia Photography. Lauren is an amazing photographer, who just knows how to translate precious moments into the most gorgeous photographs. The lighting and colours on this day were absolutely magical, which resulted in breathtaking imagery. Out of this world would be an understatement.
We also got the chance to work with Wander and Follow Images. Joel created a film, which we will cherish and obsess over forever. You HAVE TO check it out!
When selecting the gowns, we wanted to add a modern twist to the old-world style of this bridal shoot. Working with traditional fabrications like tulle and lace allowed us to incorporate modern designs. LARISA by Pronovias combines a princess-like tulle skirt with modern ruffles. The sheerness of the semi-illusion tulle on ROSSANA also added a modern touch, whilst complementing the classic theme of the day.
What we loved most about this shoot? Something about the style of this shoot felt like it stepped straight out of a Disney film or a classic novel. The kind of wedding you would look back on and still be head-over-heels in love with every choice you made.
Styled with burnished silver, crystal glassware, and spring garden-style florals, this old-world styling felt incredibly romantic and fully realised – allowing the day to center around its true meaning – a celebration of love. Can’t you just picture yourself driving off into the sunset in a classic cream Bentley alongside the tuxedo-clad man of your wildest dreams? We truly can’t stop thinking about this day and would love to do it over, and over, and over again.
