Found Collective transforms Maison De Moon, South Australia’s freshest wedding venue, into a pastel fantasy for this delicious styled shoot and we’re serving it to you on this feel-good Friday – guaranteed to give you top-notch inspo for your very own big day. Follow along as we chat to each of the creative cats responsible for the incredible work you see here in the pics, conceptualised by Found Collective and photographer duo, Doug and Dana of Will & Co. It takes a village, people!
WILL & CO. PHOTOGRAPHY
Half of the creative brains behind this concept, Dana of Will & Co. shares, “I have always been a lover of vintage, especially when it comes to brighter floral designs.” The “old-world charm” of the venue blended well with Dana’s modern approach to capturing images. “I’ve slowly been working toward a more editorial feel with all of my images with weddings so this was a really good opportunity to be all-in and sink my teeth into work that was really true to myself!”
THE BAKE SPACE
This extraordinary Adelaide-based baker, The Bake Space, nailed the “flower market/pastel” brief just perfectly, even managing to subtly weave in the lilac theme. A bonus splash of peach and a couple of dainty white rice paper blooms make this beauty a definite star of the show.
GOLD CHAMPAGNE TOWERS
Champagne towers sure are having a moment and we’d very much like them to stay, thanks. Gold Champagne Towers were all over it with this chic acrylic plinth setup. A great alternative to cake or if you’re feeling a bit extra, why not have both?
Is it even a flower market theme without handmade, vegan and gluten-free pressed flower cookie favours? We think not. Luckily, Melbourne-based baker, Bombus Co, was on hand to provide the goods. Cottage core at its very best.
OAK + IVORY
We love that Oak + Ivory went all out with paper shapes to show how a minimalist stationery suite can be customised without incorporating extensive illustrations or bright colourways. We’re living for the delicate double arch place cards!
Kelly (of Found Collective) describes her vision for the shoot as a “spring flower market” explosion, a theme we can very much get behind. And when Kelly talks, we listen! “Dana and I [also] really wanted to make lilac a feature colour on the table setting, as we haven’t seen enough lilac at weddings and events here in SA.” Take her tip and run with it, friends!
RUBY PAGE CELEBRANT
Ruby delivers and we’re not just talking about cutie patootie ’fits. She loves meeting with her couples to chat their story, their vibe and their perfect day. And this smile? Guaranteed all day long.
Kelly’s brief for the lovely folk at Stem Haus was “wild, organic and unstructured” and naturally, this Adelaide-based florist delivered, from the crescent arch to the burgeoning table arrangements. The “bursts of peach, lavender and pink-toned florals in an explosion of ombre” served the desired “English country garden vibe”.
Now with all that in mind, scroll down and start pinning people! Oh and and if you want to see it in print, head on over to our online store, where you’ll find it in Issue 36, along with so much other wedding goodness, it’s beyond worth the buy! And to our Directory for more from the talented Found Collective and Oak + Ivory. Phew. Ok, you know what to do…
