A Summer's Dream

Sophisticated, timeless and dreamy are just a few words that come to mind to describe this stunning editorial session captured by Kate Freestone Photography. Hidden in an enchanted secret garden this editorial was inspired by the classical combination of the blush and ivory colour palette.

Chatting to the Teams stylist, Tammy from Darling Days, we discover that the inspiration and concept for the shoot came from the classic love stories like the 1920’s 'Great Gatsby' an era that never goes out of style. Taking the hard straight lines and textures of the period the team infused it with a soft romantic overtone that balanced out the harshness leaving just soft elegant textures set amongst a magical garden setting. The spectacular floral design for the session was created by the lovely Shiralee from Shiralee Archer drawing on the background of picturesque gardens she added a blooms of blush, ivory and delicate pinks and greenery to create the bridal parties florals and drew in the same tones and florals in a cascading style across the tablescape which heightened the overall look of elegance and opulence. When it came to cake design, Who Ate The Cake crafted a stunning an elegant two tiered white cake the embodied the elegant simplicity of the shoot.

The location for the shoot was none other than the picturesque Evanslea, set on the Cudgegong River amongst four and a half acres of pristine gardens this spectacular luxury boutique venue immerses you in utter elegance, style and relaxation from the moment you enter the grounds. Weddings at Evanslea are a private exclusive affair and are only able to be booked when the whole property is booked, providing couples with the exclusive use to enjoy with your nearest and dearest making this the ultimate garden venue for privacy and relaxation.
