australian outback wedding theme

From Ivory & Beau “When you have a work trainee from Australia, of course you have to do an Australian shoot! Nic has been with us this year helping us with wedding planning, and she was the perfect model for this shoot. To kick off the Outback feeling we wanted the stationery to have a postcard and an Aussie feel, with geometric patterns and scenic landscapes.”

From Ivory & Beau – “In searching for the right venues, we came across two perfect locations. For a sunset ceremony, we found a secluded marsh on the edge of Savannah, with wild brush and trees everywhere. It had the perfect outback feel.

We set up a teepee with layers of rugs, pillows, and even a didgeridoo for the groom to serenade his bride. The ceremony was set against a handmade greenery backdrop, woven in chicken wire and strung across a birch arch. There were even antlers added. For games, we borrowed a cricket set from Savannah Cricket Club, so our bride and groom could have some fun before they said I do!”

From Ivory & Beau – “We chose a 3/4 sleeve gown with champagne lining for our bride, that is the perfect parts boho and sophisticated. Our bride wore boots so she could easily walk through the outback. Our groom had his signature mustache trimmed to perfection, and his favorite hat from Goorin Brothers. When it came to the flowers, we wanted to keep it wild and free, with queen anne’s lace, berries, daisies, kale, mums, lotus pods, roses, and antlers.”

“For reception, there is nothing better than an Australian coffee house! The Collins Quarter features signature coffee’s inspired by the owner’s Australian heritage, as well as a delicious food menu. They provided some of their signature dishes, and we gathered up our favorite Australian dessert. The cake was done by Rum Runners and featured, what else, but a kangaroo and koala cake topper! For the his and hers signature drinks, each featured Bundaberg Ginger Beer, an Australian staple.”
