There is a part of Mother Nature that we think is much under loved at weddings. While flowers, in some ways rightfully so, always command centre stage, it is the greenery that is the unsung hero. And nothing floats our little greenery-loving hearts more, than an editorial packed with ideas.

Dreamt up by stationery designer and creative soul Natalie of A Tactile Perception and captured by Ada + Ivy Photography, the team made the most of Yarra Valley farm The Farmers Daughters – it helped that the venue has endless green lawns and trees that perfectly complement the vibe, of course!

And the vision? It centred around Natalie’s own concept of “Green Earth” “which centres on greenery, and is fresh, organic, and highlights table styling as the main feature.” She tells, “We aimed to demonstrate that we can use more creative and natural styling for weddings and smaller events, and bring in elements and form from nature that still exude sophistication and uniqueness.”

Natalie using her paper skills, designed an invitation suite using green paper made from grass, (developed by Gmund to create a more sustainable paper option, part of their sustainable Bio Cycle paper range). The different green hues – sage, forest and apple all play off each other beginning the bold layered look of the day.

With wedding planner Caitlin of Paradise Hunter pulling the rest together, a beautiful table (with white tiffany chairs from Always Eventive) was set under the property’s magnificent trees. Caitlin brought in beautiful leafy garlands, and unexpected touches like broccoli (!) (taken home and eaten for dinner so there was no waste!) to add a touch of considered whimsy.

And the cake?  Practically a work of art if you ask us. Breearn Murray Cakes takes the brief of  “An overflowing sugar bowl” and creates incredible cake multiples (which we hear taste just as good as they look). The cakes were placed on cake stands from Always Eventive to make sure they were the star of the table.

There is often thought that eco-friendly weddings, and weddings where flowers aren’t the focal point of decor, might not be able to hold their own in a world of utter creativity, but this editorial? Proves that is all wrong.  Says Natalie “The Spanish Dramatist Pedro Calderón de la Barca said “Green is the prime colour of the world, and that from which it’s loveliness arises,” and we wholeheartedly agree.
