A classic garden wedding inspiration never fails to make me smile – something about the beautiful backdrop Mother Nature provides creates such a beautiful spot for a wedding. Today’s shoot, titled “Magnolia” is inspired by the classic glamour of yesteryear. Sparkling French chandeliers,  elegant couture gowns, tarnished vintage silver, crystal cut vessels and beautiful blooming magnolia trees all set the scene for a beautiful, classic garden celebration.

Photographer Kirsty Duchet teamed up with Melonie Santos Makeup ArtistPlatinum PerfectionOh Perfect DayFlowers In A Vase and Dessert Diva  at Mount Macedon venue Cameron Lodge Cottage & Gardens, Kirsty telling, “Magnolia Bride was inspired by the glorious magnolias of Mt Macedon’s Cameron Lodge – one of Australia’s oldest hill station gardens – and set against a backdrop of spring blooms, ancient tree canopies and impressive period architecture.”

And the gowns? Oh the gowns are the crowning glory of the glamour garden wedding inspiration. Beautiful creations from designers Anna Campbell, Gwendolynne, Jane Hill, Jason Grech and Karen Willis Holmes. Long sleeve sheaths, beaded bodices, classic ball gowns, gowns made of lace and dramatic Victorian-esque collars bring the feature back to an old world feel.
