Tucked away in the ravishing Southern Highlands, Montrose Berry Farm is a dream place for couples to say ‘I do’. The venue is brimming with sublime greenery, flowers and beautifully old tall trees. After draping fairy lights amidst the trees we couldn’t imagine a more perfect place for them, as dusk began to fall they seemed to twinkle like real fairies dancing between the leaves.
Touches of old world charm could be found all over Erica and Beau’s wedding, from Erica’s dress and hair to the vintage Chevys and bow-tied groomsmen. We reflected these lovely classic details in our wedding styling taking extra care with the details. We used sheets of vintage music paper flowing with songs about love and happiness and to Beau’s surprise, Erika had secretly learned a song on guitar and played it to him to finish the magical evening.

Vintage styling peppered with bits and bobs of meaningful keepsakes set the scene. However , not even the shimmering glass votives and champagne flutes could shine brighter than Elissa’s smile.
Dane took Elissa’s hand as they walked slowly amongst the trees, the scent of eucalyptus hung in the air, they say summer is the season for love.
Well, this is what they call the real thing…

She can’t really tell if she’s dreaming or awake. The air is filled with fog and the chill in the air is surreal and does little but make her hairs stand on end. Her soul has a way of its own and she knows if she just lets herself go she will find out where she’s meant to be.
There’s something intrinsically magic and enchanting about the night. It draws you in without false promise of what it holds. It’s in the celestial aptitude of the night to transform the colours of the forest into something unknown and unexplored.
“Sometimes you have to walk on your own,” she whispers to herself as she treads barefoot into the darkness. This is her forest, she has no fear, there’s nothing here that can bruise her or turn her away- she is not faint in heart.
Her lips tremble and she can feel every inch of her skin underneath the beading and silk of the white dress she is wearing. Flames from a thousand candles are dancing and throwing light onto the layers of ribbon and silk that surround her.
A ghostly fog starts creeping up through the trees and begins to cloud her vision. Before long it slowly clears and she starts to see a figure emerging. Is this what she has been waiting for her entire journey?
Her heart feels like it’s exploding, sending atoms filled with hope, love and joy to the very boarders of her body. Her breath catches in her throat and her hands start to shake.
“You are my sun, my moon and all my stars,” he says before coming towards her. She confesses her love then he takes her hand and they leave the forest for the last time to start their life as a couple, no longer single souls lost in the woods.
One more last and no less amazing thanks to our entire dream-team: The ah-maze-ing floral designs (including all the head-pieces) were crafted with love by The Sisters and the one and only Abbey Love dazzled us all with her make-up and hair styling artistry. Our aesthetically-pleasing models (to say the least!) Nicole, Kellie and Erin were dressed up by Dolly-up Vintage Emporium and Indigo Fleur. Our favourite boys from Evoke Images and John Benavente were our personal paparazzo for the day and No Limit Pictures captured it all to make our own little motion picture!
We love you guys to the stars and back xx
