Seeing our glorious LUNAR gown walk the streets of Havana Cuba, with the incredible talents of Camilla Kirk Photography in toe, the results are nothing short of #DREAMS.
Ever so delicate the gorgeous Lunar gown has been so popular before the collection was ever released. As seen in Miss Universe Australia this is an absolute dream dress. Scattered with pearls throughout the entire gown. With it’s beautiful off the shoulder
sleeve, soft draped bodice and cascading train it’s a gown that features in our wildest dreams.
Havana has our hearts. Full of vibrant colours, oozing history and a taste of adventure. How could the Lunar gown find a more beautiful place to be worn?
EDITORIAL // The Last Summer Berry - Styled Wedding
Styled Wedding Shoot Featuring Begitta - Bridal and Couture FLEUR gown.
This absolutely stunning venue provided the backdrop for an insanely cool and modern chic wedding. With bright flashes of red and subtle nods of deep hues in blacks and purples.
As the sun sets over the hinterlands of the Southern Gold Coast the light sparkles through the leaves. The perfect backdrop for this incredible shoot of berry hues and lush greenery.
Amongst the rainforest-esqe seeing the incredible floral semi-circle created by Xavier Nicolle Flowers.
"The final days of summer were drawing in, the berries ripe, and the leaves were clinging to the branches. It was coming closer to the time where we all switch our margarita to a full bodied red!
We made the most of the last sunshine - seating guests among the trees to feast on earthen plates hand-fired by the local potter, gold cutlery, and luscious raspberry-red blooms. The bride's caped gown seem to speak to the breeze, and flowed so loosely behind her -untamed. Her make-up rich and opulent.
The naked tipi, found foliage ceremony circle, and hand-painted watercolour stationery belonged to this wilderness, and it was still so unexplored.
Those involved with this creation perfectly harmonised together to create the ultimate embodiment of an earthy, enchanted, mature summer day which seemed to teeter precariously on the edge of Autumn."

'The heart of man is very much like the sea, it has its storms, it has its tides and in its depths it has its pearls too' -Vincent van Gogh.
Nestled in the small hills on the shores of outer Brisbane is the beautiful Fort Lytton, it offers the most incredible contrast of rough and rugged texture and a cool calming feeling of open space and endless history. Captured by the talented Kylie of Just For Love Photography and filmed by Wrapped Up Media, this sublime styled wedding shoot has brought together the roughness of this incredible location with the soft, sweet and subtle hues of blush, muted pinks, rosewater and white-on-white.
The decaying exteriors of the fort set of the ethereal styling put together by Coco & Confetti, offering a forever-feast for the eyes, with subtle nods to soft ocean props of shells, oysters and pearls carried through with the beautiful stationery by Lindqvist Ink. Heavy papers with divine calligraphy teamed with a layering of textures and colours featuring beautiful linens, faux furs, velvets, beautiful ceramics and tapered candles. The bouquets of blooms and the incredible hanging installation put together by Xavier Nicolle featured Dahlias, David Austin Roses, Anthurium, Palm Tree fronds and seeds and the most fragrant of Tuber Roses.
The beautiful bohemian-luxe feel hair and makeup looks were created for our bride and her girls by the incredible team at The Beauty Case, with soft dewy faces, soft nude lip and free flowing locks and a soft up-do for the gorgeous bride.
The brides epic gown of endless luxe velvet and lace pushes the boundaries of tradition with its sheer pearl studded open back and divine high neck lace collar. Featuring beautiful hand-sewn lace appliques, lace cut-aways and a body-hugging fit, this gown embodies passion, femininity and is effortlessly cool. Perfectly accentuated with the gorgeous white-on-white bridesmaids gowns that feature lace and gorgeous modern styles.
Our gorgeous girls celebrated by sipping with rose infused champagne from decadent crystal and enjoying the incredible treats and awe-inspiring cake. Created by the amazing girls at Two Little Bakers, with scrumptious macaroons, decadent cupcakes and the most gorgeous donuts all featuring a hint of gold accent and rosewater hues and flavours.

What an insane year it has been for us at Begitta - Bridal & Couture with #TheMiss UniverseProject for 2017 ! The work that has gone into the project this year as sole gown sponsor for the Queensland girls has been huge! Having created over 75 gowns for Miss Universe over the last 18 months I am looking forward to the final feather in my cap working on the AUSTRALIA NATIONAL COSTUME with Olivia Rogers for the International Miss Universe this month in Las Vegas! Eeek!
BUT for now lets talk about this divine shoot..
These girls are absolutely amazing and we are so glad we had the opportunity to work with them! Our inspiration for this shoot was light with a slight vogue feel. Ardeena is stunning backdrop and we worked with some amazing people within the industry who bought our shoot to life. The gorgeous Kaitlin captured not only how beautiful the girls are but also the gowns! So dreamy, so intricate, so stunning!
