Oh, friends, give us a wedding in the country, pack it with stunning details and we’re going to be the very first guests to pull up a chair. Today’s editorial, a modern vintage country elopement, is set at a beautiful country venue in South East Queensland. Today, we’re headed to The Acres.

The shoot was the vision of Lorelai (the master behind wedding stationery brand Studio B Couture and elopement company Wyldly Eloped ) who wanted to showcase “love in all its beauty and challenges and celebrate the uniqueness of this lovely couple choosing to celebrate inclusion in all its forms.”

Lorelai chose photographer The Fox and The Bear and cinematographer Stories By Jess to capture the magic, the team dreaming up a romantic elopement in the countryside that focused completely on the core of it all our model Freya and Nick’s love story.

Starting with a romantic invitation suite, that included moody floral prints by Studio B Couture, the design elements were “modern vintage”. Tones of blush and lavender, with cream, adding something soft and dreamy to the Australian country landscape. “This quaint editorial brings together a modern twist on vintage elegance” explains Lorelai. “Styled as a romantic elopement, the team wanted to include all the beautiful elements of a large-scale wedding, with an emphasis on love.”

Real-life couple Nick Dempsey and Freya Saunders acted as our newlyweds. Nick wore a two piece suit from Asos, while Freya wore a classic lace gown, a design of Luna Willow Bridal, her hair and makeup styled in romantic pink tones and a soft up-do by Carly Stone.  A little sparkle was added with handcrafted jewels designed by Fairina Cheng Jewellery.

The couple took a field, with a pine forest as the backdrop for the ceremony, led by Hannah Lea. A pink velvet couch from Amarti complementing a wooden arch adorned with roses of dusky pink and white by Blooms By Bridie.  Later, the same velvet couch provided the perfect backdrop for photos, and a place to enjoy dessert – a beautiful cake designed by Magnolia Cake Boutique.

Says Lorelai: “The grassy fields, mountain setting and perfect golden light brought this shoot together and demonstrate that you don’t need to lose the elements of a traditional wedding when eloping.” And as we all now know, after the two years that were, your wedding can be whatever you want it to be. What will you choose?
