A WIND SWEPT SUNSET BEACH SETTING – STYLED INSPIRATION SHOOT
We loved this gorgeous styled shoot at Point Cartwright on The Sunshine Coast put together by some of the best. A collaboration by When Elephant Met Zebra shot on film (his passion), Simply Style Co, The Beauty Case, The Orange Blossom, Bohemian Brides and Erin Clare Couture.
It was a windswept wintery afternoon, waves were crashing on the rocks. As you walked around the headland there it was, a gorgeous and romantic table setting put together by Simply Style Co.
The dark blue table cloth, grey table runner and crisp white’s were combined with crystal glasses that shimmered in the afternoon light. All were layered effortlessly like beautiful soft ribbons that danced in the wind draping down onto the sandy setting below.
Corals, shells and strands of beads of different textures were scattered through out the table reminding you of the days when you would trawl sandy beaches as a kid and find treasures of different textures, shapes and sizes. A table setting like this makes you feel relaxed and will help the conversations flow.
Soft water colour details on invitations and material with tattered edges to finish them off, all give the feel of the watery surrounds.
If you want this gorgeous look on this beautiful model, be prepared for your hair to feel free in the wind. The Beauty Case had this in mind and chose to have a loose but styled look, elegant with loose curls but pinned to perfection. The soft touch of their makeup brush over a brides face will make her glow in the hours before sunset.
This gorgeous gown stocked by Bohemian Brides is soft and luxurious and is so dainty in the wind. Feminine and beautiful with a flowing hemline. Top it off with a long veil by Sunshine Coasts very own Erin Clare Couture and you have the perfect look that will make your lover swoon.
The bouquet by The Orange Blossom was crisp and fresh as if they were picked from a meadow nearby. Combining a love of land that meets the sea shore. Not tight and stiffly bunched together but lovingly put together.
If you want to have beach side photos on your wedding day, check the wind factor. Brian of When Elephant Met Zebra watches intently in the hours leading up to a shoot or wedding to get the best windswept look. He worked his magic as the day light hours ran out. Just think of you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated by the sea air before you meet with family and friends to party the night away in a celebration of love.
A special thanks goes to Dallys Models for such a pleasant young lady to work with xx
