Bush Bride Inspiration

We’ve spoken before about how much we enjoy doing wedding inspiration shoots, and we’re really excited that our Bush Bride inspiration shoot is featured over on Polka Dot Bride today.

I’ve seen a lot of beautiful floral crowns this year, mostly featuring traditional European flowers, and I couldn’t help thinking that an Australian native floral crown would be just as lovely.  Lilyvale Flowers brought my dream to life, and from there it was just a short step to the idea of a quiet Australian country elopement.

Our bush wedding is a beautifully simple day with minimal fuss, and lots of smiles.  Almost everything in it is second-hand or DIY’d, with the exception of the beautiful floral creations. There’s dancing, and laughter, and even a dip in a lilypad-filled dam.

Cleopatra

It’s not every day that you find Cleopatra wandering regally through the Brisbane night.

As you know, a few weeks ago we went to Lost Movements to take photos of the Glory Box fashion parades. As an unexpected bonus, we also got to capture some of the gorgeous work of the night’s resident body painters, one of which was the very talented Sandra Temple.  She turned the lovely Jo Jo into a divine Cleopatra.

You can see the full gallery from the night here.

The girls from Glory Box

I mentioned in a Quick Picks post a few weeks ago that we were going to be attending Lost Movements to take photos of the Glory Box fashion parades. It was a fabulous night and the girls all looked stunning. As well as snapping shots of them during the parade, Geoff took advantage of the great backdrops provided by the art on the walls of the venue to capture these lovely portraits.
