Island Elopement

Words by Tamarin Morley

Imagine escaping to an island paradise to marry your soulmate in a ceremony stripped back to its most honest form. No matter how much we might love wedding bells and whistles, an intimate beach elopement sounds like heaven on earth.

Such was the inspiration behind this free-spirited collaboration from a talented team of WA wedding vendors, headed by milliner Olive Farm Designs, stylist Heart Strings & Pretty Things and backdrop designer Hello Love. “Our main priority was to evoke a young organic feel throughout the shoot.” Says Olivia of Olive Farm Designs, “with pockets of carefully considered details that gave balance, warmth and layered textures.”

With such stunning natural surroundings, the team were careful not to over-style the scene, saying “We wanted to complement the surroundings and consciously kept to natural tones.” Pops of colour were introduced with bright blooms by Lime Flowers and water colour stationery created by The Articulate.

A midriff revealing dress was designed especially by The Library Dress, while The Pretty Parlour created a natural look for the barefooted bride, with understated makeup and loose, wavy locks, adorned by a handmade blush flower crown from Olive Farm Designs.

Taking the shoot to another level, the team incorporated intimates from Karolina Couture Lingerie and ended the day with the couple playing in the water. The shoot was captured by Tina Shawal Photography and be sure to watch the behind the scenes by Ethan Ho – Film & Photo.
