The inspiration and heart behind this styled shoot was a collaborative effort between Tumut wedding vendors Roslyn Clare Photography (Roslyn Hogno) and Coach House Flowers (Natasha Proos). Over the past few years, the two have worked many weddings together. They have both grown to know what the wedding market traditionally demands and they saw a gap in the market for a “new style” to emerge.
Both Roslyn and Natasha have a love, passion, and reputation for creating unique experiences for their clients. They wanted to create this styled photoshoot to inspire couples to “think outside the box” and be a little more adventurous and bold in their choices for wedding photography and florals. And so the winter styled elopement shoot was created.
The floral arrangements for this styled shoot were created solely by Natasha and her team member Jo, who were fully included in every element of creating the overall vibe and style of the day. Jo, created the hat piece and grooms buttonhole, while Natasha (for months) carefully curated each and every single element of the bridal bouquet to perfection. The majority of the bouquet includes floral pieces sourced from local growers, with the white peacock feathers being purchased locally too. The invitation suite was carefully created and donated by Heidi from Quill Design, who understood every element of the shoot and right from the get-go, saw the inspiration and heart behind the whole idea.
Everything from the colours, the location, the textures and even the model couple were thought of down to fine detail. Both dresses were purchased online for under $80 each (thinking outside the box, again). The location was chosen carefully to compliment the nature of the dried floral bouquet, the ribbons and the adventurous elegance of the couple we were creating. With Roslyn capturing and photographing the beauty of the natural surroundings and the sunset.
It’s for the adventurous, but elegant bride, who values her core beliefs of marrying her love. It’s for the couple want simplicity and beauty with an elopement in the mountains. Creating an elopement for a couple has never been easier and the trend is rising across the globe for couples to adventure away (often not too far from their home) and create their dream “wedding” with minimal fuss and something that feels truly “them”.
