Talented Townsville based wedding creatives have curated a moody elopement picnic with all things romantic, rust and a little out of the box!
“We scouted a location for a few weeks, throwing around a few ideas that have quite frequent use in our industry, but decided to stick to our original feel for this styled session. We wanted to create something with a little WOW factor that hasn’t been seen or done up here in FNQ (that we’ve seen).”
Highlights: The entire day was one big highlight for all Vendors involved! We absolutely love coming together with small local businesses and creating magic – especially after we had all been put out of work due to the Coronavirus. We had such an incredible team on the day, and have made life long friends from this shoot who we can’t wait to work with in the near future.
Challenges: Mozzies + impending rain clouds! A few hours before the shoot the rain clouds started to roll in… it was looking a little gloomy outside but we decided we wanted a moody feel and we were going to roll with whatever the afternoon turned out to be! We all covered ourselves in Mosquito spray and braved the riverbed! It turned out to be perfect weather with the sun started peaking through the clouds just as we finished setting up.
What led you to decide on this venue/shoot location? We had done a lot of research ‘aka Pinterest stalking’ and wanted a location that was unusual and not somewhere you’d think to go! We decided to venture down into the dry riverbed. It was absolutely gorgeous with the soft flowing grass and the sandy patches throughout.
Favourite detail: Definitely the florals! We decided to go ‘all out’ for this shoot and not only have a bouquet but, everything from a floral crown right down to the table arrangements.
