There are some shoots that simply take your breath away, and our recent collaboration at Kooroomba Lavender Farm was definitely one of them! We are more than a little excited to finally share all of the gorgeous details with you from this unforgettable day, as we worked alongside an incredibly talented team to create a French-inspired shoot that encapsulated our vision of a French provencal romance.
Inspired by the magic of the Provence lavender season, this intimate shoot was styled by House of Lilley to reflect French-countryside romance. A sea of lavender fields drenched in golden afternoon light created a truly picturesque backdrop for the day. Every detail of the shoot was thoughtfully considered with authentic French romance in mind, from the soft watercolour stationery suite to the elegant tableware, lilac linens and ruffled buttercream cake. Gorgeous pastel blooms by Mrs Gibbons Flowers tied each detail together beautifully, with lush pink roses and trailing greenery weaving their way throughout the setting.
With a sense of sophisticated luxury resonating strongly throughout each element of the shoot, it was important for the bridal headpiece and jewellery choices to complement not only our gorgeous bride, but the overall styling of the day. We decided to pair the intricate lace gown by Emmy Mae with a selection of our delicate hair accessories for an ethereal and dreamy look.
Our Ariel bridal hair vine was one of the first stunning looks from the day, resting perfectly above the elegant updo styled by Jody Callan Hair. Featuring the palest blush silk ribbon and artisan crafted gold-leaf details, it was a soft, feminine touch that complemented our French garden theme and pastel colour palette wonderfully.
For a slightly bolder look, our much-loved Antoinette floral hair vine in gold was a beautiful fit to frame our gorgeous brides face. To highlight the feminine and luxurious nature of the shoot, we also showcased our sweet Rosanna head wreath and Adrianna bridal headpiece for a romantic look that worked in a more subtle and understated way. We honestly couldn’t choose a favourite – each headpiece adding its own unique flair and proving how the right hair accessory can completely elevate your personal style on your wedding day.
To accessorise our bride, we chose to showcase our Clarence, Darlene and Becca pearl drop earrings for a classic and refined look that complemented the feminine silhouette of the gown beautifully, paired with our hand-beaded Martina pearl clutch. We were over the moon with the end result, as our bridal accessories worked harmoniously together to exude the effortlessly chic and sophisticated style that the French are renowned for.
Our brides ethereal look was completed with the perfect sparkling diamond engagement ring and wedder from our friends at Xennox Diamonds!
As we reminisce over these stunning images by Just For Love photography (recently featured on Polka Dot Bride), we find ourselves being transported back to this dreamy day and wishing we could do it all over again! A huge thank you to the talented team that came together to bring this shoot to life – it’s an experience we won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
