We all know throwing a wedding can leave a sizable footprint on your bank account, but what about the one it leaves on the environment? In all the madness of planning your big day, sustainability might not be at the forefront of your mind, but that’s exactly what drives the creative vendors behind this eco-inspired shoot.
“Most of us are fully eco in our businesses and in our personal lives,” says Fremantle photographer Nicolle Versteeg, who teamed up with local florist/stylist Maminkwink to create these earthy scenes. “We wanted to share snippets of our thoughts, such as native blooms, seasonal shared platters (dished up by food truck Eat No Evil) and the magic that can be created with up-cycling.”
Newlyweds and Freo locals, Em and Tom were naturally gorgeous models. The barefoot bride looked every bit the part in a backless crochet dress by Spell Designs with a simple braided pony, courtesy of Bow by Natalie Miller.
Styling included an abundance of low-impact details, such as reclaimed timber furniture, up-cycled doors and palettes, native dried-flower bunting and living air plant displays. Most of all, we love the origami cones for guests to take home a posy at the end of the wedding!
