If you’ve ever wondered whether a wedding without flowers could work, John Benavente’s images of Myles and Amy’s lush tipi wedding will have you convinced.
An event producer by trade, Amy had a firm idea of what she wanted and luckily Myles was on the same page. “I was adamant that I 100% did not want a single flower at the wedding”, says Amy. “I have seen it time and time again so I wanted to do something a little different. This is where the rainforest theme came into play and it grew from there. We wanted the whole wedding to be submersed in a rainforest vibe that was cool, calm and cozy.”
The Grove at Byron Bay was the setting for both the ceremony and reception which were brought to life by Byron Bay Weddings. Luxury tipis nestled amongst the lush green hinterland not only provided a unique backdrop for the ceremony but also housed a reception set-up with a distinct rainforest vibe. Long wooden tables, crossback chairs and abundant foliage in the form of hanging installations and table adornments by Beautiflora created a rich green sanctuary. Even the naked cake by Let Them Eat Cake was decked out in greenery.
And of course this ultra-cool wedding featured an ultra-cool bride and groom. Myles rocked a stylish bespoke suit by Charlie Allen while Amy wore a Berta Bridal gown with a plunging neckline, glittery Jimmy Choos and beautifully natural hair and makeup by Julie Corbet. The pair, however, weren’t too cool to shed a few tears when reciting their vows. Amy says that the ceremony was her highlight of the day. “It was pretty special, nothing has ever felt more right.”
