Inspired by the Australian film, ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’, and shot at the heritage site Rippon Lea Estate, this styled shoot is a reminiscence of the 1900s with its light colours, blush tones and flowy gowns.
Gown by Jason Grech
The first gown in the shoot is the Vivien dress by Jason Grech. Soft and sheer fabric, completed with a ribbon tie neckline and long sleeves, the gown is vintage and elegant. Jason Grech is a multiple award-winning Melbourne couture brand synonymous with pure luxury, which specialises in wedding dresses and red carpet gowns of the very highest quality.
Rippon Lea Estate
With the shoot taking inspiration from the Victorian era, Rippon Lea Estate seemed like a perfect venue for the shoot. The scenes from the shoot were captured in the ‘Drawing Room’, ‘Conservatory’ and ‘Pool Area’ from the mansion, while the outdoor scenes were captured within the 14 acres of gardens within the estate. From sitting in the drawing-room, playing with the piano, the couple went out to the poolside and finally the garden for a picnic. Tranquillity and blissfulness shows throughout this shoot, imagine having such a relaxed wedding in the mansion.
Gown by L’ETO Bridal
Out in the garden, the bride changed into ‘Piece 20’ gown by L’ETO Bridal. The ivory silk gown is fluid and features pleated angel wing sleeves, romantic and dreamy! Natural and innocent-looking makeup paired with classic pearl drop earrings and vintage style engagement rings. Together, everything was soft and subtle, a pleasure for the eyes.
The collection is a sheer delight of fluid movements, languid silhouettes, and an abundance of lightweight silks. Designer Anya links the inspiration of an era long past into her signature delivery of contemporary designs with an approach to newness. – Palm Springs Collection from L’ETO Bridal”
