An Elopement Shoot

When Tanya from Social Creative approached me to collaborate with Exotic Soirees on an elopement shoot I was all in. The location was chosen as the pine forest at Pizzey Park on the Gold Coast and together we came up with a concept that landed us published in To The Aisle! The team of creatives who came together was beyond a dream, bringing the right elements to create this picture perfect inspiration space. These creatives included: *click on the name of each business to be taken to their website* Photography: Maxted Visuals Dress: Holly Rose Couture Marquee: Exotic Soirees Flowers and Styling: Sugared Style Creation and Management: Social Creative Models: Gemma Leigh and Daniel Nelson Furniture: AV Ideas Stationery: Love Notes Australia Cake: Whisk By Sarah Harpist: Elska Music and Killer Creative Entertainment Hair and Make Up: Fellanr   The brief was to create an intimate space in which a couple would enjoy their wedding day in the form of an elopement. My mind went in to overdrive… what would I love most if I was eloping. First, I would want a beautiful space to have pre-wedding photos. Something similar to a boudoir shoot but more modern in feel. So I created this… a spot in the pine forest with a single seater chair, a stunning chandelier hanging above head and what every girl wants, an oversized flower arrangement that cascades from the heavens right down to the floor.     My fiancé would arrive and wait for me in our own little piece of heaven. Giving us the chance for a first moment together when I arrive. A moment of just us…   … before we move in to our ceremony. Deep in the heart of the pine forest, where a personal little hedge of flowers sits ready to envelop us as we stand and become husband and wife.     Then following our beautiful ceremony my fiancé and I would enjoy this incredible little haven where he would serenade me with song. We would sit and enjoy a meal together, drink and spend time absorbing our love story.
