Weddings sure aren’t what they used to be and we mean that in the very best way. These days, couples are encouraged to stick to what matters most to them and we love to see it. Elopements and micro weddings, already steadily on the rise before the pandemic, are now top choice for plenty of folk.

Inspired by courthouse elopements and the popularity of luxe micro weddings, this team of Newcastle vendors have put together a styled shoot that has put a spring in our step this Friday morn. Keen to convey that a smaller wedding doesn’t mean sacrificing statement styling, you’ll find ceremony inspo, cake, outfit ideas and more.

The talented Ash, of Film & Foliage, was one of the masterminds behind the shoot with her textured, wild blooms and floral foam free designs front and centre. On her grounded floral crescent Ash shares, “Each bloom is locally grown by Australian growers and relevant to its season, creating a harmonious meadow for our bride.” She adds, “We featured yellow centred summery flowers throughout to carry a nostalgic and whimsical feel as a balance to the minimal and modern setting as well as tying into the muted gold tones in the table styling.” Paired with natural linens, local wines and a bridal suit, chic was the name of the game.

If you’re all here for these petite shindigs we urge you to also take a peek at Sarah & Nick’s Byron Bay wedding, Bodie & Ed’s Noosa Wedding and Demi & James’ Sydney wedding for an extra dose of inspo. But first, be sure to scroll all the way down to catch all the local makers and craftspeople who contributed to these swish snaps including lensman Benedict Sutton
