'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.
