Untamed Elegance


Set high amongst the clouds at 1100 feet above sea level near the peak of Mount Carool, Ardeena was the perfect location for this styled shoot, with breathtaking ocean and hinterland views and acres of lush open fields and untouched rainforest.

The wildness of the hinterland seemed to connect with the space, achieved in both the cocktail area and the guest tables with the use of organic materials — cane, bamboo, rattan and soft grey linens. In contrast, the day oozed luxury, with the chinking of crystal champagne glasses lit by elegant gold candles, black plates, and perspex menu’s adorned with beautiful modern calligraphy. The rich pops of colour in the flowers and sweet treats cut through the dark moodiness using deep aubergine purples, raspberry reds, dusky pinks and gold in a cascade of untamed elegance. Contemporary and clean with the use of both monochrome and geometric shapes in the architecture, lighting, and bar stools, this shoot inspires the modern, design-loving bride.
