Garden wedding inspiration in the Southern Highlands, Australia
If black-tie elegance fused with lush summer garden party is your wedding vibe, you're in for a treat with today's garden wedding editorial in the Southern Highlands of Australia. We are head over heels for the bride's two gorgeous wedding gowns - a silky satin, pearly vintage dress from Shopgosammer and a translucent, textured tulle OUMA dress. Just stunning!
Today we travel to The Rift, a grand Victorian Italianate mansion in Bowral, New South Wales, surrounded by established cold-climate gardens and lush, rambling countryside. 'We were inspired by the considered grace and tranquility of the sweet earth and the dainty blooms she creates," explains Amelia Soegijono, an Australian wedding photographer who captured this editorial.
"Inspired by the the lush and coastal land outside of Sydney, Australia where this is shot, this wedding inspiration shoot embraced the treasures of the sea, featuring seashells and corals as the vessels to hold the beautiful wildflowers. Every subtle details from the artwork on the stationery, the shoes, the gown... gives an effortless nod to the language of the water, the sea and the earth."
