I feel like there is almost nothing better than a long lunch with your favourite girlfriends and today’s inspiration focuses on that very thing – the bond between a bride and her bridesmaids.
Photographer Kylie of Just For Love Photography tells, “So often we see inspiration shoots that are always focused on the wedding day, but there are so many special & memorable moments spent leading up to the wedding, that are often forgotten about. We wanted to provide girls with some ideas in which they could ask their closest friends to be their bridesmaids… in a heartfelt yet fun way, not only popping the question to them, but also making them feel as special as they are to the bride! ”
Kylie teamed up with stylist and floral designer Coco & Confetti, calligrapher Floralovely Calligraphy, with decor from Kolo The Wanderlust Effect and The Wedding Shed and silk ribbon from Feathers & Stone and gorgeous girls Madalyn, Maddie, Regan, Meg & Jess to bring this vision to life at the stunning Byron View Farm.
Emma of Coco & Confetti leads us through the story. “Nestled in the shade of a bamboo grove on a hinterland estate in Byron Bay, a bride-to-be invites her girlfriends to join her party as bridesmaids, with a colourful and playful picnic escape. The bride welcomes the girls at the country gate and leads them to at a low, lavishly decorated table where they lounge on the lawn together to share a feast amidst the soft bohemian furnishings.”
“They chat and laugh and celebrate moments past as they had done for years on end and hoped to carry on for years to come. There’s a palpable sense of fun and the styling feeds into this energy with hyper-colour florals, which play off the bright rich hues of the gemstone feature pieces and are complemented by textured accents of ivory and brass.”
“As the afternoon wanders on towards sundown, the bride invites her besties to accompany her to the escarpment, where she pops the question “Will you be my bridesmaid?” on the silk-ribbon tails of personalised, hand-crafted kites.”
