Romance is on our minds all the time around these parts, so a romantic editorial set at a brand new, beautiful county estate? It’s right up our alley!
The beautiful new Mount Tamborine venue The Grounds Estate was a pretty perfect backdrop for model Tahlia Winter‘s concept. A vision of spring beauty that is understated and simple, holding the beauty in the blooms. “The style of this shoot was all about showcasing the magic of a spring wedding but in an intimate and pared back way and still having that “wow” factor.” She explains “Spring can be an overwhelming time for a wedding as there are so many flowers in season. This shoot shows that you can still have all the elements of a classic wedding, but with colour and without it being in your face and taking away from the couple.”
Tahlia invited photographer Wylde Folk Studio and Joel & Courtney Films to capture the details, and Clinton Kopittke to act as her “groom” and the challenge was set. Three beautiful vignettes – the ceremony, a champagne tower toast and an outdoor reception embracing the spring mood. Stylist Everafter Weddings & Events and floral designer Mountain Love Flowers collaborating on a lush greenery, sweet peach and white colour story that blended modern and classic styles.
Add that style? It’s right there in the styling of everything – not just the wedding details! Tahlia and Clinton both dressed in pieces by When Freddie Met Lilly. Love Is In The Hair created a beautiful swept-up hairdo in Tahlia’s blonde hair, while Makeup by Mir styled her makeup in complementing, soft peachy hues.
After kicking off with all the elegance with a pinky peach stationery suite by Lily Maree Designs, the ceremony begins. Our couple marrying with the homestead as their backdrop, before they celebrate with champagne and bask in the glow of the sunset before they make their way to the reception. A long table dressed in pale blue linens, is flanked by white chairs, the florals in peach and white dotted between candles aglow. A tall, single-tier wedding cake, topped with apricot roses by Three Jacks Baking is the perfect end.
And while this editorial is beautiful, as with weddings, there are always more layers, more stories behind the details – which is of course, what we love the most. And consider this beauty an ode to Tahlia’s grandmother. She explains “My Nana who had passed away from brain cancer two weeks out from the shoot helped me select the colour scheme and my dress for the shoot. She was always a big lover of spring and gave it the tick of approval. I also wanted this to be for the modern-day bride but with a classic and elegant twist.”
