A Beach Elopement of Dreams

2020 has been a tough one for the wedding industry. However, the silver lining is that it has given wedding suppliers an opportunity to come together and get their creative juices flowing on inspiration shoots.

Physically Distant Photo Shoot

This physically distant shoot brought together a small, but mighty group of suppliers. The limited number of personnel on set created a relaxed and intimate vibe. The team had to be resourceful to keep attendance low due to COVID-19 restrictions. The photographers worked their magic, creating a light and airy fine-art look and feel to the images, tapping into the summery inspiration of the beach. 

Beach-Inspired Wedding Colour Palette

The colour palette used light pink combined with baby blue to blend perfectly with the sandy blues and beachy surrounds of Botany Bay. This colour combination was carried throughout the shoot, from the table styling to the florals and was also reflected in the bride’s dress—a flowy number from Morgan Davies Bridal with a hint of light blue to match the colour of the ocean. Miss Carlysle and Co. styled a light blue ring box with a light blue birthstone ring to accent the seaside vibes of this shoot.

Beach Picnic & A Touch of Flair

The table used a relaxed beach picnic setting, including a sweet micro-cake from Meadow Sweets Cakes to add the perfect touch of celebration. This set-up could be enhanced by the addition of a

romantic wedding picnic basket filled with your favourite sweet treats and little luxuries. Add a further touch of romance by using wedding love letters instead of stationery and coloured smoke bombs to create a dramatic and stunning effect.
