Wow, wow, wow! Some of Adelaide’s top wedding vendors really do have fun when they’re not bringing wedding day dreams to life! This styled shoot really shows that these vendors live and breathe what they do – even when they’re not actually working on weddings, they’re dreaming up beautiful beach inspiration like this for all you engaged loved-up couples! Shoot coordinator, Jenna of Wonderland Invites, described for us how this shoot came to be:
Living in Glenelg provides so much inspiration – from the beach walks and sand-dunes, to the wooden timbers of the jetty. I’m also obsessed with elopements at the moment…coming from the UK where elopements are less common due to the legalities of marrying outdoors, I was so keen to curate a styled elopement; focusing on beautiful styling and gorgeous couple portraits. I approached Emily from Ever After Event Hire after seeing her work on a shoot a couple of months previous. Emily is fantastic and has such a keen eye for both the bigger and smaller picture. She recommended Amanda from Flowers in Nature, as we were keen to stick to a dried flower vibe – Amanda’s work is amazing, and I was so thrilled she was able to come on board. Emily and Amanda styled a gorgeous naked tipi, a sweetheart table for two and a beautiful arbour aisle.
The team was small but mighty with myself providing stationery, Natasha Keneally on makeup, Laura from The Bride Lab lending a gorgeous Rue de Seine gown and denim jacket, and Richelle Casson shooting the day. I lent jewellery from The Vamoose, which paired beautifully with the slip on the East gown that Alecia wore. I was so pleased that Alecia and Luke, a real couple, were able to join us as their joy and love for one another just radiated. And despite the wind and slight rain, the shoot went off without a hitch!
