Think dreamy purple colours and intimate vibes for this destination wedding at Branell Homestead, Australia. Inspired mainly by the jacarandas that line the drives of the venue Tyneale Hahn of Tyneale Hahn Makeup Artist and Emily McDonald of Poppy and Sage Photography wanted to create some purple wedding inspiration using the colour spectrum from pastels through to deep tones. We hear how it was created.
“Our shoot was planned to heavily feature the Jacaranda’s that line the driveway of the venue – Branell Homestead – but unfortunately 2 significant hail storms went through the week prior and stripped the trees. We have paid tribute to the Jacaranda with a variety of purple tones from pastel through to deeper wine colours in every element. To be completely surrounded by blooms (even the chandelier!)”
“This elopement is a nod to all the couples who married through the early stages of restrictions when numbers were limited to 5. There are little moments of celebration that would not have been possible in a full wedding celebration… like popping that bubbly in a private setting! Our couple spent the entire day together, eating cake, sipping champagne and having a deconstructed pavlova to themselves… Delish!”
“With small numbers it allows you to wriggle the budget a little, to spoil or splurge on those things you might not have been able too before. Our bride (Emma) and groom (Dylan) models were perfect. Emma was effortlessly beautiful, and Dylan, dapper and handsome. All would not have been possible without our little slice of paradise in Branell Homestead. Situated in the back of Laidley, close enough to town but still far enough away. Far enough to be lost in the countryside and landscape views. They have the most spectacular sunsets!”
“When it comes to your wedding theme if you can think it, you can create it! When your venue gives a blank canvas there are so many opportunities. This particular venue has many spaces (in various sizes), many brides choose to style themselves or engage a stylist – my advice would be to create in the space that allows you the most freedom and least amount of stress – some brides love to create their wedding day spaces and some entrust a stylist. Be true to you!”
“So many moments of this shoot were special, the amazing venue is practically in my backyard (the Lockyer Valley) and our team of vendors are based in the Toowoomba/Lockyer regions – friends and colleges creating together. This was a wonderful experience as restrictions lifted and was the first time many of us had seen each other in 6months! We also treasured the addition of other contributors (some coming on board very last minute) – being the first time to work with them! Our venue, Branell Homestead is set in the hills of Laidley – a country homestead with a grassy top level perfect for an outdoor ceremony or intimate reception, a short walk down the hill to the pavilion (the reception area with open or close options) another outdoor ceremony or reception location and characteristic old jetty that walks out onto the dam. The property has acres of mango trees and endless photo opportunities with their own cattle (that you are able to feed if you wish!). You receive the venue as a blank canvas and can create whatever you hope and dream for!”
“Emily of Poppy and Sage Photography captured every moment and detail of the day, even the surprise ones! (Like the butterfly that landed on the couple during the portraits!) She creatively captured the day – the candid moments are always the most treasured.”
“There were elements handcrafted and created, the bridal gown by Sew Master Fashions was made especially for the bride with her vision in mind. Our groom attire by Wil Valor was impeccable. A full suit with vest and bow tie are very on-trend at the moment, a wedding is a formal occasion why not look your best?! They are also great ways to include pops of colour or a unique designer fabric. Rachael Davies Celebrant conducted the ceremony including moments of reflections written by the couple. Very few tears but so many smiles and laughs as they recounted special moments that led them to this day.”
“The sweet treats and cakes were the work of Katrina from Cake House. Love is sweet, and on this day, it certainly was! The groom loves pavlova and the bride was there for the cake! Katrina created the sweet moments around their favourites, an elopement meant they had all the time in the world to sit down and enjoy them. Nadja of Le Sans Souci created a floral oasis… she elegantly styled the afternoon tea reception as well. Antique and unique pieces were included. Blooming luxury! The earrings were handcrafted by Bronte LVH Art & Design, intricate details echoing our purple vibe. The delicate stationery was hand-painted and designed by Paperhands.”
“The unique approach continued to hair and makeup, Tyneale Hahn Makeup Artist added pearl details as a romantic touch and reflected the colour palette with soft lavenders and plum tones for the eyes. The delicate balance of a natural makeup yet detailed, to let the ‘you’ shine through!”
