When Ailish of Eden Catering Events approached Jen at Madden and Co Events to help with a styled shoot, she was so excited to be invited to do a set up under a fairy light canopy. It was something Jen had always wanted to do and being relatively new to the industry hadn’t had the opportunity to do so as yet.
“Under the Tuscan Sun (LOVE that movie!) was inspiration for the beautiful styled shoot we created under a canopy of fairy lights at the stunning White Harvest Events and Functionsvenue in Coorangbong, NSW. The pebbled driveway and over hanging greenery instantly evokes the rustic charms of Tuscany.” Jen shares.
Madden & Co Events worked with a colour palette of white, olive, terracotta, gold and natural timber. The venue was instantly transformed and took you directly to what you thought would be a pebbled driveway in Tuscany.
Timber trestle tables and dark bentwood chairs provided by Prestige Party Hire were lined up to form a long guest table. The tables were adorned with Lauren Alyce Floral Design olive leaf garlands and lovely white and green floral arrangements.
Madden and Co Events composed the place settings with hand made stone plates, olive linen napkins and gold cutlery. These were complimented with green glassware and handwritten place cards attached to a sprig of olive leaf. Beautiful brass candle sticks were scattered amongst the lush foliage down the centre of the table adding a touch of opulence.
Dark stained timber signage by the talented BB Collective featured throughout. The welcome sign ‘You are my sun, my moon and all of my stars’ was a very fitting quote for the shoot beneath a canopy of fairy lights. The Mr & Mrs signs helped to show the special place for the newly married couple. Sheer drapery hung over the chairs and was adorned with olive leaf and the dark stained Mr and Mrs signs.
The Wandering Waterhole’s 1980 converted horse float ‘Dusty Dan’ fitted in perfectly. It featured a complimenting floral arrangement, crystal glassware and candle light. The perfect place to mix cocktails and for guests to take a beverage.
Our model wore a stunning sweetheart neckline gown designed by Made with Love Bridal and supplied from Lily Grace Bridal. The most enchanting lace compliments the boned bodice and thin straps into a plunging back. The model wore jewellery from the talented Christian Kinder Jeweller. Her hair and makeup was done by the lovely Taylor Beck Make Up Artist.
Thankyou to the whole dream team below for creating such a magical shoot. We are all especially grateful to the ridiculously talented Jennifer Burch Photography for capturing everything so perfectly and for allowing us to share it with you here.
