STYLED SHOOT: Elegant but make it FUN
Can bright colours and elegance co-exist? If this NSW styled shoot is anything to go by, the answer is heck, yes!
Words by Karina Lowndes
5 August 2021

Nothing quite gets our hearts racing like a styled shoot that really packs a punch. So when this one landed in our inbox, it made our day. Captured by Tealily at Kantara House – a lovingly restored 1960s property on the NSW Central Coast – it showcases how colour and elegance can co-exist and, most importantly, the attention to detail that only comes with experience – something this team of wedding vendors have in spades.

For example, stylists Ashdown & Bee tied everything seamlessly together with earth-coloured decor by The Pretty Table Hireincluding candles, napkins, chairs, cutlery and coasters by Belles and Bells (that doubled as place cards) while florist Aleksandra Diary strategically sprinkled flowers throughout to add a little ‘extra’ to her already beautiful and bright arrangements.

The hair and makeup by Boho Hair and Makeup and gowns by Eternal Bridal and Galia Lahav added to the fun yet ethereal vibe of the shoot and the cake by Stacy Brewer Cakes and champagne tower were a very nice final touch to this NSW styled shoot – and proof that you can definitely have both!
