Wedspiration > Inspiration > STYLED SHOOT: Stonebarn
This is right up there as one of our fave shoots. An overgrown, dried hanging floral installation, loads of linen and rattan, a modern and minimalistic vibe. Plus, it’s all assembled at Stonebarn – a beautiful WA wedding venue surrounded by native forest. It’s the kind of look that would suit any season.

Stonebarn has always ranked as one of our top WA wedding venues. With multiple entertaining areas, luxury accommodation and unobstructed views of the surrounding native forest and river, it’s a truly remarkable space with plenty of flexibility.

This styled shoot was put together by some of the region’s best wedding vendors, including WedShed fave, Kim of The Wedding Concept who styled and conceptualised this editorial. Captured by Jessica Liebregts Photography, it showcases Stonebarn in all its wedding glory.

Inspired by the property’s natural surrounds – specifically the changing, neutral tones of the bulrush flower – and florist Lara Rose Botanical Stylist utilised things like wild leek and old hazel branches. Natural linens and rattan furniture from Hire In Style finished things off with a modern, minimalistic vibe.

The minimalistic approach followed through to the model’s styling with hair kept in a simple, modern up-do and earthy eyeshadow colours used on model Sophie’s eyes. Her look was completed with accessories and garments from Mode and Affaire Bride including a snow-coloured ostrich skirt and custom made beaded bodice.
