We always love a good styled shoot here in Bridestory, especially ones set in an especially beautiful location. Today's inspiration took place in Sault Restaurant in Daylesford, Australia, a homey bistro with exquisite lavender fields as their backyard. "Initially, we planned on using darker colors instead of softer ones we did use on the shoot. But eventually we gave in to the electric lavender fields and adapted the initial design," explained Katerina Vermes, chief stylist of the shoot.
The team finally settled on lilac as the dominant color and balanced it out with shades of lavender, blush and ivory. To add glamour was the color gold, which was incorporated to elements of the wedding. Inside the restaurant, Sault's timber tables were decorated with flower arrangements and dishes in shades of purple. Amethyst crystals, rose, and clear quarts were strewn around the tables to give out that bohemian feel. Gold-tinted cutleries and menu cards were also present to etch up the glamour. "The purpose of our indoor tablescape was to show brides how you can inject alternative and boho-styled elements yet still maintaining an elegant and conventional look," Katerina explained.
Stepping out of the building, the vast lavender fields gave the team a different idea altogether. "We loved the idea of creating an outdoor high-tea reception among the sweet scents of a lavender field. This is where the team really let loose and had some fun!" Katerina recalled. A tribal-looking rug was placed at the table's base and around it plush pillows and ottomans were placed. The decoration, invitation and food were beautifully created according to the chosen theme. You can really tell from the photos how well executed everything was.
Also completing the album were shots of the bride dressed in dreamy wedding dresses, walking in the midst of the swaying flowers. Would you want a wedding like this? Tell us what you think in the comment box below and don't forget to add your favorite images to the inspiration board!
