Earlier on this year we had the absolute pleasure of working with some of the wedding industry’s most sought after vendors to create a magical styled shoot – “Of Land and Sea”. And not only are we grateful of being able to collaborate with these wonderful professionals, we also had the shoot featured on one of Australia’s biggest wedding blogs, Ivory Tribe.

Sash from Collections Photography reached out to us mid 2020 in the hopes of collaborating together for a potential styled shoot, and after working with him at our venue multiple times, we just couldn’t pass up the offer. Sash worked very closely with Sonya from Evenio Weddings & Events to bring the concept of this shoot to life.

“Of Land and Sea takes inspiration from the beautiful ballad, Beyond the Sea; realised in the contrasts, textural beauty and natural effortlessness of existence in a city by the ocean. This is a visual story where land and sea represent harmony, equally ensconcing and balancing each other whilst maintaining their individuality.”

“Stylist Evenio Events turned to the textures of the coast for inspiration, which made for delicate design details; soft, whimsical shells against foam-like muslin, rough offcuts of marble and coral and sculpturally statuesque ivory candles by Flort. Mad About Cakes celestial centrepiece is a vision of ivory encrusted corals and gentle sea swells.  Juxtaposed against this ethereal effect are florals by House of Figs in soft sage, warm sienna and brushed tan, echoing the natural tones of the sandscapes. Pops of neon tangerine and seashell pink nod to the golden tones of sunset reflecting across the ocean.” – Ivory Tribe

We had to reschedule the shoot several times due to last-minute bookings (#weddinglife) and also the inevitable Victorian lockdowns that come alongside living in a pandemic. However, once the day eventually rolled around, we had an absolute ball. We were all a little worried given the unknowns of Melbourne’s weather, and of course our beachside location, but it was a spectacular afternoon with the most perfect overcast lighting and pink St Kilda sunset to finish the day off.
