Nature combined to create a wonderful enchanted forest and beach wedding in 6 weeks!
The moment we met up with Vanessa we were excited about the passion she has for the environment and how we could transform a standard golf club to create a beach wedding / fairytale forest wedding that was fresh, enchanting and most of all sustainable (and it was only in 6 weeks time). Never one to shy away from a challenge we jumped in and this is how the story goes…
We locally sourced all the foliage for the hanging arrangement and table centerpieces with masses of amazingly scented pines, gums and branches (all of these were then delivered back to be re-purposed for mulch at the farm).
For a unique twist on their “guest book” our amazing Gemma hand stitched with organic wool a tree outline and guests pinned their well wishes during the night onto the branches in the form of written upon birch wood slices. This wonderful keepsake of the night is now a wall hanging in their residence.
Wedding table centrepieces of tealights made from local wood, combined with foliage, lots of candles and Tasmanian natives in little coir pots.
Linen was slate grey cotton cloths with burlap runners and napkins were 100% linen with a piece of drift wood, foliage and billy button tied with a name tag on recycled paper.
The fragrance in the room reminded guests of being in the Australian bush with the beautiful scents all mixing together.
To take advantage of the amazing sunset/night space at Greens Beach we created a romantic candle lit path out to a flowing arbour of soft white fabric. Even the lightest of breezes were blowing out the candles, but we persisted to create one of the most beautiful evening shots we’ve done with the ever amazing Chris Young Photography. We never could have wished for a more beautiful beach wedding in Tasmania than this!
Here’s a before and after of the room shot – lots of hours of work and a wonderful team to bring it all together!
It was a truly amazing experience and we were very lucky to be featured on Wedded Wonderland with this enchanting woodland wedding 🙂
We wish Vanessa and Sam the very best with their future! Love the EA Team !
