Lakehouse Wedding Inspiration Shoot as featured on Polka Dot Bride

Its always fun going for a road trip for weddings and photo shoots, and late last year we road tripped to the new venue 'Lakehouse' for an inspiration shoot with some of our favourite peeps in the industry.  Polka Dot Bride featured this gorgeous shoot last month and you can read more of the photoshoot details here. Studio 60 did an amazing job at capturing the details with the setting sun in the background, always such a pleasure to create florals for their shoots. White + White Events planned the shoot impeccably, while Amini Concepts undertook the creative styling for the day.

We created the flowers for the shoot using lots of lovely in season blooms in soft dusty tones of pinks, peaches, whites and greens. Our bride was crowned in a floral halo, romantic vintage table flowers in our tarnished silver goblets and jugs, and simple touches of bloom and foliage at the ceremony.

The Lakehouse has been gorgeously styled by its owner Kelly, and a beautiful venue for both ceremony and reception spaces on the Sunshine Coast.

Real Wedding : Anna & Clinton - A vintage high tea wedding.

Looking back to 2013 there was so many gorgeous events we were lucky enough to play a part in.  One of our favourites was Anna and Clinton's hightea wedding reception held at Gunshop Café, Westend in Brisbane in September.  Kelly Adams captured all the pretty details from their day, and did an amazing job with the moments as well.

Today their wedding has been featured on the Hitched Magazine Blog so pop over to see more images from their day as well as their romance story of before the day.

Green and Bloom undertook the full creative direction and styling for the reception, creating a fun and beautiful reception at the café for their celebration.  The installation part of the styling commenced from a couple of days prior to the wedding, with the installation of a ceiling of bunting handmade by the bride and her bridesmaids.

We styled the reception with clusters of mismatched wooden chairs as well as our new retro deck chairs, vintage suitcase stacks for coffee tables, a photobooth, Pimms Station, and High Tea station which we topped up all night with delicious sweets and savouries made onsite by the chiefs from Gunshop Café.  Flowers were filled in Swann vases, Hanging baskets and teacups draping from the ceiling, and the most gorgeous rosette cupcakes for the wedding cake created by Cakes by Judy C.

Anna and her bridesmaids had their hair and makeup created by Fabulous Everything Hair and Makeup who gave the girls vintage styled hair and makeup for the occasion.  Can you believe Anna wore a vintage bridesmaid dress her aunty wore many years ago, and the bridesmaids had custom made retro frocks with all different coloured paisley print fabric.

Many details from this wedding are now available for hire to other Green and Bloom styling clients with the favorites by far being our retro beach chairs, vintage suitcases, metal trunks, and ceramic swann vases.

Enjoy the vintage festivities of Anna and Clinton's wedding day.
