There are few things in life that are as sweet as spending time with your best girlfriends…. we wanted to celebrate friendship and inspire brides to be with ways in which they could ask their besties to be their bridesmaids – this Byron Bay Inspiration shoot was the result of an amazing collaboration. Nestled in the shade of a bamboo grove on Byron View Farm in Byron Bay, a gorgeous bride-to-be invited her girlfriends to join her for a day full of celebration & joy! From the lavishly decorated table on the lawn, they chat and laugh and celebrate moments past and dream about the ones yet to come…
Byron View Farm – such a perfect venue set amongst the rolling hills of Byron Bay! Perfect for weddings & celebrations alike… I’d actually enjoy time out here any day of the week…
Emma from Coco & Confetti shared “There’s a palpable sense of fun in this shoot and the styling feeds into this energy with hyper-colour florals, which play off the bright rich hues of the gemstone feature pieces and are complemented by textured accents of ivory and brass.”
The gold hand lettering by Louise at Floralovely Calligraphy was just perfect for this celebration and adorned a selection of agate slices & gemstones that were scattered over the table setting… imagine this at your Wedding Reception – love!
Drawing from inspiration from Spell Designs, I created this platter for the girls to feast upon, I think perhaps I may have missed a calling as a food stylist from a previous life! It almost looked too good to eat! The cheese board from Kolo The Wanderlust Effect just completed it nicely!
As sundown approached, the girls wandered to the nearby field where the bride to be popped the question “Will you be my bridesmaid?” on the silk-ribbon tails of these stunning hand-crafted kites, made by talented Emma from Coco & Confetti. Grinning from ear to ear, they take to the fields together to try their hand at kite flying, whilst celebrating with each other!
So often we see Inspiration shoots that aren’t easily obtainable – this shoot however is so simple, yet holds such a beautiful & heartfelt message, not only asking your girls to be your bridesmaids, but also make them feel as special as they are! Why not organise something like this before you pop the question?
A huge thanks to the following vendors for bringing this vision to life:
