Vintage grandeur - garden wedding inspiration

Inspired by the glorious magnolias of Mt Macedon’s Cameron Lodge - one of Australia’s oldest hill station gardens – this inspiration shoot is set against a backdrop of spring blooms, ancient tree canopies and impressive period architecture.

Oh Perfect Day was honoured to take part in this collaborative shoot, featuring the cinematic-style photography of Kirsty Duchet whic captures the magnificence and scale of the setting .

No words can describe the timeless elegance of the gowns featured from five of Australia’s most celebrated bridal designers - GwendolynneAnna CampbellJason GrechKaren Willis Holmes and Jane Hill.  

Antique lounge furniture, tarnished vintage silver, crystal vessels and a French chandelier feature as part of set styling by Oh Perfect Day.  Contrasted by feminine, romantic floral design by Flowers in a Vase, and sweet macarons by Dessert Diva, each hand selected piece complements and enhances a feeling of ageing grandeur in a secret garden.  

Flawless, natural makeup and berry red lips by makeup artist Melonie Santos pop on models Julia Gribble,  Mary Vitinaros and Natalia Kalinowski  against the natural setting.  Hair by Platinum Perfection is reminiscent of the classic glamour of yesteryear.
