Romance is in the air at the beautiful Pialligo Estate today, as we share with you bucketloads of inspiration from a team who have created an utterly dreamy editorial inspired by the landscape of Tuscany.
With olive groves, sparkling wine, outdoor tables under dappled light and beautiful florals, one could indeed be forgiven for thinking that an Italian summer was nigh. Our bride and groom (Rebecca Parrish and Tom from Victoria’s Models) are dressed in glamorous pieces from L’eto Bridal and Black Tie By Xavier and are styled by Cassandra Lee with Steph Church Make Up. The celebrate next to a rustic wooden table set right into the grove; the raw surface topped with lush, fluffy blooms (those peonies!) in gentle shades of pink, complemented with chic stationery pieces by Across The Forest. The setting is completed with knotted pale pink linens and modern, gold flatware for something simple yet striking.
An ornate cake – a masterpiece by Laombre Creations – brings the understated glam concept full circle with its intricate, hand-painted detail (almost too lovely to eat!)
Photographer Zelda says, “The Estate is both a ceremony and reception venue and it’s filled with beautiful olive groves and citrus orchards. When in amongst them, you almost feel like you are miles from Canberra, somewhere in the Mediterranean. So I was inspired by the beauty of the location and wanted to channel a romantic Tuscan-inspired feel.”
