When a newly restored vintage caravan and a group of creative and passionate wedding vendors get together for a photo shoot, something magical happens….. Last month a fabulous collaboration of vendors and suppliers from across SA got together in the Barossa within the grounds of Chateau Tanunda for a shoot inspired by the transformation of Rilda the caravan. The vibe of the shoot was to capture some flirty girly wedding fun with pretty pastel hues to give a nod to Rilda’s heritage. The shoot was made possible with thanks to a fabulous line up of vendors and kind permission from Chateau Tanunda to use their land. So meet the team!
Little Vintage Bar & Van
Rilda, the Brides Trailer is the brainchild of Kathy Elliott of Little Vintage Bar & Van. Named after Kathy’s Grandmother, Rilda has been a wonderful labour of love involving many, many hours of restoration. With her husband Ross, they set about bringing this 1968 Harris caravan that had spent quite a few years out in the weather back to life….. Rilda has a serenity about her and when people step inside they inevitably start to whisper. For that reason Kathy decided to offer Rilda as a Brides Trailer for hire. The perfect haven on a Wedding Day for a Bride to have her wedding photos, pre wedding glass of champers or simply a retreat between ceremony and reception.. Rilda can be custom styled for any occasion and will bring many smiles and memories to those she meets..
Based in the Adelaide Hills, Cake Bites has over 8 years experience of cake designing and it’s worth noting that all of her stunning cakes are made from scratch with love using local ingredients. Cake Bites made and provided the gorgeous naked cake, biscuits and scones which were the perfect addition to the shoot and enjoyed by all after the shoot nom nom nom!
The Eclectic Bride
Our super models Jess and Lauren wore bespoke vintage inspired gowns designed and hand made using vintage materials by The Eclectic Bride, a business that’s about to launch in the Barossa.
MintCloud Makeup Styling
Our MUA for the day was Lauren from Mintcloud Makeup & Styling who has over 10 years experience in the industry. Lauren really loves making people feel their best with a strong belief in providing a personal touch. Ensuring her clients are completely comfortable and happy is of the upmost importance. The makeup Lauren used for the shoot was designed to give a soft romantic look. A light golden shimmer eye along with some extra lashes for a touch of glamour. Cheeks were given a peachy pink highlighted hue and Lips were given a soft peachy/pink and a peachy brown colour to ensure that the models natural beauty shone through.
