Western Australian wedding pros Heart Strings & Pretty Things, Hello Love, and Olive Farm Designs teamed up to create a sensational editorial shoot aimed at couples seeking a romantic island feeling for their wedding… an escape with their closest family and friends. Tina Shawal Photography was there to capture the magic and it sure was beautiful!
From Olive Farm Designs – “Our main priority was to evoke a young organic feel throughout the shoot with pockets of carefully thought out details that gave balance, warmth & layered textures. We wanted to compliment the surroundings and consciously kept to natural tones however pops of color were introduced with the flowers, makeup & accessories for variety & interest.
To set the scene Sarah from Heart Strings & Pretty Things worked closely with Elli from Lime Flowers & Holly from Hello Love to create simple yet beautiful settings for our couple, from the timber-framed arbor with striking blooms & macramé backdrop, to the amazing table setting by the beach & the teepee decorated with twigs & feathers found on the shore. We included subtle hints of boho inspiration by adding imprinted arrows to the wedding cake created by Amy from De La Rosa Cupcakes, handcrafted hats from Kate & Abel, as well as keeping the couple both barefooted however including hand beaded lace foot jewelry for the wedding ceremony.”
From Olive Farm Designs – “Tash from The Articulate created water colored stationery all written by hand & Pheobe from The Library Dress was so inspired by our vision that she created the dress just for the shoot. Our makeup artist Brook from The Pretty Parlour went with loose beach wavy hair that went perfectly with the handmade flower crown in pink & blush tones created by Olive Farm Designs, completed with natural understated makeup to highlight the models features & a bright lip.
Taking the shoot to another level we decided to incorporate lingerie from Karolina Couture Lingerie & ended the day with the couple playing in the water. The shoot was captured by talented Tina of Tina Shawal Photography & the behind the scenes video by Ethan Ho – Film & Photo.
We wanted to show the beauty in keeping things simple, organic & personal. From the shoot you have a great sense of the kind of couple we had had in mind during out creative discussions. It’s so easy to go overboard when it comes to styling a particular theme so we wanted to strip things back & let our surroundings speak for itself.”
