Queenslanders just keep sending me such gorgeous  styled shoots, I can’t resist in sharing them with you! The lovely Carly of Queensland based CL Wedding & Events sent through this eco- chic styled shoot she was asked to do for Eumarella Shores Resort. Eumarella Shores is an eco friendly resort and sits on the shores of Lake Weyba.

The shoot has some stunning inspiration- perfect for a lakeside wedding (or even beside the beach) with simple, natural elements and a soft colour palette.

Carly says “The brief was to keep the style within the Eco Chic realms but without losing any glamour that every bride and groom wants for their wedding day.  We used recycled recipe index cards for the menus, recycled cardboard and twine for the place cards and hung a 3 metre twig ‘chandelier’ with 28 glass tea lights in place of ordinary lights . An antique type writer was used as the guest book and old novels with wooden letters were used as props. We kept the ceremony simple and intimate and let the stunning lake in the background speak for itself!”

I love this idea of simple paper tags on the backs of chairs- special ones for the bride and groom are a great idea, but perhaps you might consider these in lieu of place cards? Especially if you have gorgeous chairs like these cream painted wooden ones.

Typewriters make such a fun statement and can become a great talking point for guests as they write their heartfelt messages for you.

I am a massive fan of succulents at weddings- who says you need flowers? Why not masses of succulents and green leaves? It looks crisp and clean when paired with white linens.

Simple lounge areas are also a favourite of mine – they promote intimate conversations and give guests a quiet place to escape the celebration together. Make them comfy with plenty of cushions and sweet touches.

A beautiful way to spend the day don’t you think?
