This stunning shoot full of bohemian beach wedding ideas will probably make you lose your breath, because it sure had that effect on me! Dreamy gowns, florals that cascade and spill out of their vessels, a table setting filled with wood tones and sparkling brass and gold. The story? A bride and groom elope at the beach, saying their vows under a simple wooden structure, before dinner comes – a setting for two. As the sun sets they head to “honeymoon huddle” and revel in the moment, together.

Stylist Miss Mooi teamed up with photographer Oy Photography, florist Floretta by Grace, cake designer Miss Ladybird Cakes, calligrapher Miss Envylope, makeup artist Nicole Aquilina and hairstylist Sinead Comelli of Varhairdo to create a shoot to inspired a beautiful bohemian beach side elopement. Coordinated by stylist Stacey of  Miss Mooi the team of Melbourne wedding vendors took to a deserted beach to bring to life their vision.

Stacey tells, “When thinking of a location for this shoot, I really wanted to showcase some of the beautiful regions we are so fortunate to have in our gorgeous Country Victoria. It was extremely exciting knowing that we would shoot at Koonya Beach as it is such a special place; the landscape is stunning with many rock formations to shelter in which provided a level of intimacy that was just so lovely to work with. Shooting in such a beautiful natural environment was so inspiring in itself and a privilege so it was important to me that the creative direction for this shoot be in harmony with the location and be equally as beautiful. Drawing inspiration from the rawness of the environment and depth of colour in the rock formations, gorgeous gold and brass highlights were chosen to compliment simple and uncomplicated neutral elements and became the colour palette for the shoot.”

The Bridal Atelier sourced two stunning gowns for the “bride”. Stacey noting, “The Bridal Atelier in Armadale, Melbourne has a stunning range of internationally sourced bridal gowns so I felt quite blessed to have them on the team where they supplied and styled two truly unique and beautiful gowns. Each gown was chosen for their beautiful uncomplicated silhouettes which ultimately allowed each of their stunning textures to be the feature. With full length intricate beading, the Toni gown by Theia was kept simple and paired with a latte cathedral length veil and gave the shoot the ‘luxe’ feel that we were after. Our model, Naomi, was a vision and had the entire team in awe as we kicked off the shoot.”

Floretta by Grace  created the floral arrangements, inspired by the shoot location. Stacey explains, “At the water’s edge of Koonya Beach are some pretty special low rock formations with the most vivid of green moss, almost framing our shoot. Truly stunning! Then again all around us were gorgeous rock formations weathered over many years and steep hills behind us with local grasses all with amazing green or gold tones.

Drawing inspiration from this remote location, Grace created stunning organic florals that subtly echoed the beautiful colours we were surrounded by. The simple duo tone colour palette of creams & moss green were perfectly offset by the whimsical, loose and slightly wild style of the arrangements. The arrangements were made up of silvery Gum leaves, luscious white double Ranunculus and heavenly cream garden roses framed by loose cascading jasmine and fine fern vines.”

The second gown for the model, from The Bridal Atelier was more relaxed but just as stunning, Stacey telling, “For a more relaxed look as the couple moved on to their celebration just for two, we decided on the simple but stunning Sienna by Rue de Seine. Sienna is a full length gown with a high neck and long sleeves in a beautiful embroidered cotton nylon mesh and was styled with a pretty headpiece from Lovisa. With a slightly fuller skirt, Sienna draped beautifully along the sand as Naomi and Gus posed in the stunning peacock chair.”

“I was really pleased to have the opportunity to feature some of our pieces from Miss Mooi’s bespoke furniture and prop hire range. Each piece was hand selected for their timeless appeal and simple form bringing the right amount of character without being in conflict with the environment.

The simple table for two paired with rustic early Australian cottage chairs was the perfect size for an intimate celebration overlooking the soft waves rolling into shore a short distance away. Sheltered in a gorgeous rock formation, the table was dressed sparingly with special pieces such as a small animal skull and tapered Crystal candle holders from Manyara Home juxtaposing perfectly into a gorgeous boho luxe feel.”

Stacey briefed the hair and makeup artists to create a relaxed, bohemian style for the bride, noting “Nicole Aquilina and Sinead Comelli of Varhairdo created a truly stunning look for model Naomi. Makeup was kept fairly natural with a luminous and ethereal feel with touches of gold. To match the glamorous Toni gown, Naomi’s gorgeous hair was left flowing with soft textured curls for a long luscious look. A more relaxed but equally beautiful side braid was chosen for the ethereal Sienna gown.”

A three tier wedding cake in white was created by Miss Ladybird Cakes. Stylist Stacey notes, “The cake designed and supplied by Gina, the owner of Miss Ladybird Cakes and was designed to be simple but elegant yet still reflecting the rawness of the environment with the subtle textured icing in the centre tier. Lovely large sugar peony roses were added to mirror the lovely full roses Grace used in the florals.”

Stacey notes, “Jokingly referred to by the team, the honeymoon huddle was created for the couple to appreciate each other and just relish in the moment. A cowhide rug (stylist’s own) layered over the amazing traditional Turkish Kilim rug from  Patchy Rugs was the perfect cosy spot to enjoy a platter of local wine and produce.”

Miss Envylope  created the stationery for the shoot, using gold ink on hand made paper. Stacey remarks ,”When I approached Sharon Chen of Miss Envylope, my brief was that the hand calligraphy be organic and loose and in gorgeous gold ink. I truly appreciated the reply – “I am just a girl with a calligraphy pen in hand, non-traditional and I just love to play with different styles” and I immediately knew I had the right artist for the shoot. Sharon mixes her own ink and sourced beautiful hand-made paper for her elegant penmanship and supplied us with hand written stationery for the shoot. We also added the lovely quote ‘You are my Greatest Adventure Sail Away with Me’ which suited the location and style of the shoot so well.”

Maryse & Jude

When there are bright blooms and black and white stripes involved in a wedding plus a city scape lit up? I’m there, I’m enveloped and I’m diving into the details. This glam rooftop wedding has upped the glam factor and with one stunning flower filled backdrop has combined the the sophistication of the city with the fun and whimsical feeling of the newlyweds! Blue Print Photography was there to capture it all.

Maryse tells the story of how she met her husband. “Jude and I met on a blind date organised by Jude’s uncle and the mother of a child that I teach. We organised to meet three times but I had to cancel each time – I even broke my leg just before one of the dates which caused Jude to question if I really wanted to meet him in the first place! We finally ended going on our first date and we saw a lot more of each other from then on. During the same time, my mum found a prayer card at the church we attend and started praying to it to help find me a ‘good guy’- the saint she was praying to at this time was actually St Jude!! You can imagine the shock when she found out my new boyfriend’s name!!”

Of their photographer, Maryse says, “Chris Bekos from Blue Print Photography was a dream to work with. Jude and I knew immediately after meeting him that we had found the right person to capture our day. Not only is his work amazing, but Chris himself is so professional. He has such a warm and vibrant personality and a sense of fun about him. He was able to make us feel at ease and ensured we enjoyed ourselves through out the day. Our photos have captured the love and atmosphere present through out the whole day which can only be done by a fantastic photographer! He was brilliant!!!”

They were fantastic to work with because they were so creative and had a great eye for detail. They were able to set the fun mood we wanted with great a great use of colour.”

The groom ensured they didn’t forget their culture, Maryse telling “Jude really wanted to include a cultural side to the reception but we couldn’t think of how. We decided on Sri Lankan drummers and dancers that performed as we were entering the venue to greet our guests. They then left a beautiful passage way for us to enter which led to our first dance.”

The couple started the night with their first dance, the bride recalling, “Our first dance was to the song ‘Unbelievable’ by Craig David. We chose this song because of how appropriate the lyrics were to us as a couple. We did our first dance on the outside balcony of Luminare surrounded by our family and friends – it was a beautiful moment for us both.”

The groom surprised his bride with a special dance, she remembers, “I decided not to dance with my dad because of how emotional I would have been during it. Jude knew how much it meant to my dad so he surprised me by organising a special one with dad that only Jude and dad knew about! It was to the song ‘1000 years’ by Christina Perri. Jude and I began dancing to it and then dad cut in half way. It was the highlight of the night for me – it was filled with so much emotion. It was the best surprise! ”

Anna & Scott

Anna describes her wedding day to Scott as, “A slice of Melbourne at it’s best; a whirlwind tour from Yarra Valley winery to city restaurant and then local pub, all with a vintage feel.”  This sweet Melbourne vintage inspired wedding took guests from the gorgeous Yarra Valley to the urban feel of a Fitzroy restaurant, all with plenty of details that represented Anna & Scott along the way! The newlyweds chose Vanilla Images to capture their wedding day.

Of how they met, Anna tells, “We met on a lane way and rooftop bar crawl around Melbourne arranged by my university friend’s friend’s workmate, who was Skooter’s sisters’ girlfriend’s ex house-mate’s girlfriend! I don’t know what the chances were of us ever meeting if it weren’t for that pub crawl!”

The groom designed a monogram for the wedding day, Anna telling ” Skooter (Scott) drew up a crest of a lion and a kangaroo to reflect our marriage between a Brit and an Australian. We had this embroidered onto cornflower blue ties for the grooms-men. It was also stamped onto little cotton muslin bags which we filled with sweets for the favours.”

Anna wore a vintage gown from The Vintage Wedding Dress Company, (now Charlie Brear), London. It was accessorised with a piece from the groom. Anna tells, “Skooter had discovered a stunning 1920s silver belt whilst visiting family in Ireland some years before, which he asked me to wear on our wedding day. Finding a dress that worked with the belt was a little tricky, but then I spotted a 1920s style dress at the Vintage Wedding Dress Company in London. The Lalique lace was stunning and I loved the backless, dropped waist style.”

Anna and Scott chose Stones Of The Yarra Valley for their wedding ceremony, remembering, “The chapel is modern yet simple and elegant. Whilst the stables are rustic and relaxed, with beautiful bare brick walls and a wooden bar. This is all capped off with stunning views across the vines to the blue tinged Great Divide.”

Anna sourced most of the table decor herself, remarking “We made our save the date cards and invitations out of luggage tags with a vintage cloud print on the front. We continued the theme through to the tables with guests names stamped on luggage tags for place markers. Each table was given a different type of cloud formation as its table name, along with a vintage image and description. I spent the months before the wedding collecting vintage objects for the tables centres.”

“Beautiful old wooden bobbins for the table where my aunt, a bobbin maker, was sat. An old retort stand and lab beakers for a table where a guest who was a scientist was. My favourite object was a beautiful vintage glove last, although guests liked the vintage globes and kids table with vintage toy soldiers and children’s games. I found some beautiful old antlers, which were a faded pale grey colour for along the top table.”
