Ultimately, weddings are an expression of who you are. And if you’re somebody who digs colour and playful, unique spaces, we say find one for your big day and make it happen. That was the inspiration behind this recent styled shoot at Mount Ophir Estate, orchestrated by Forethought by Samantha and captured by Katie Hillary.

Samantha told us “I wanted to go nuts with colour and really show that weddings can be full of personality, be fun and also look really engaging and beautiful. I also wanted to create something with painted foliage”. The result shouldn’t have surprised us – Sam sure knows how to throw one helluva party. And Mount Ophir is one insanely versatile space – think a historic wine property with several impressive warehouse-style spaces just waiting for a creative eye to transform them.
