Mid last year (yep, this is how behind I am on my blogging), I brought together some of the best wedding folk in the Adelaide industry to do a photo shoot for Polka Dot Bride.
The intention behind the shoot was to work collaboratively with a group of like-minded vendors from the concept design stage to create a wedding that everyday couple could relate to. With weddings today getting more detailed, elaborate (and expensive), we wanted to pare it all back, everything about this shoot was to be beautifully simple and relaxed and to portray a small intimate wedding that anyone could easily achieve no matter the budget.
With a pinterest inspiration board at hand, we all explored this shoot with less of a focus on a particular ‘theme’ (vintage/rustic/classic), but rather tried to bring together a style and concept that unfolded from a range of textures and hues that we all collected. Think aging timbers, worn leather, vintage silver, natural linens, knits and fur.
Now…I have spent a really really long time trying to narrow down my top images to make this post short and sweet, but I just love EVERY single photo, so you will have to exercise that scroll button because this post is FULL of images!
Some of my favourite elements from the day were; the gold detailing on the bride’s vintage gown, the engagement ring the colour of the bride’s fiery red hair, the slightly tarnished silver cutlery (a family heirloom of mine), the wild yet delicate nature of the flowers, the warmth of the hearty winter food, the subtle moody light, the simplicity of the stationery and the relaxed and fun nature of everyone involved.
