If you’ve ever dreamt of a wedding in a country forest, then today’s editorial from a NSW dream team is going to be right up your alley.
Set at the beautiful (and brand new!) Peats Ridge venue of The Ridge Estate our team, with photographer Susannah Johnson Photography behind the camera capturing it all, wanted to create a styled shoot that was as much about collaboration, as it was about beauty. “We love to create a welcome space where suppliers and couples alike can feel comfortable and work together to achieve their goal of the perfect event” explains Susannah. “So really the inspiration was all of the fantastic suppliers that came together to not only make the shoot look fantastic, but to have a great time doing it too!”
The team created three beautiful spaces, an outdoor ceremony with floral adorned wooden arch, a cocktail hour complete with epic grazing table by Forage and Feast Platters and delicious drink delivery from mobile bar The Wandering Waterhole and an indoor reception against classic Australian corrugated iron.
Furniture pieces from Crab Apple Hire & Style (hello beautiful dusky rose velvet lunge!) and neon signs by Love Glows adding a little style to each space, and a seamless transition (plus a little fun!).
The florals designed by The Botanical Workshop, a modern take on beloved pink, use varying shades of blush with stunning blooms like peonies and orchids alongside dried foliage for something with plenty of impact.
Now let’s talk the newlyweds. Our “bride” donned an elegant lace Casablanca Bridal gown from Final Touch Bridal, with her hair swept into a loose up-do and her makeup both by CMP Bridal Hair Artistry.
Can’t you just imagine this setting for your own big day? A glass of champagne, a wander among the woods and your favourite people? We love a fresh take on anything and this concept, in Susannah’s words, met the exact brief these talented vendors set for themselves. Susannah sharing “We wanted to show couples that we love going outside the box to create their own individual style and that you don’t always have to do what has already been done.”
