Creating the Perfect Romantic Tasmanian Wedding Ceremony

 

Tasmania is a truly beautiful state and is known for its wild national parks and rugged coastlines. There is a lot of inspiration that can be drawn upon to create the perfect wedding styling in this environment. 

The end of summer and beginning of autumn is the perfect time to get married in Tasmania. Our weather can be unpredictable throughout the year, but in February through to April the weather becomes calm and beautiful. 

This styled shoot took place at the beginning of March, when the sun still went down after dinner, but the evening had begun to cool and autumn colours were just beginning to appear. 

Inspired by the blackberries and brambles that slowly take over the country side at this time of the year, we collaborated with the beautiful team at Lily Flowers to create the wild florals for this shoot.

Our Blackberries and Brambles Inspired Wedding Floral Arbour

We’re so lucky to have the incredible team at Lily Flowers to collaborate with. Their little flower shop is just up the road from our venue and they’re our go to whenever we need a florist to collaborate with. 
As soon as we showed the team our mood board for the shoot they were right on board with our vision for a wild blackberries and brambles inspired look. We love the wild shape of the arbour and the natural way they flowers are placed. 

The berry tones, blushes and whites fit seamlessly with the late summer and early autumn season and we love the mix of light whimsical flowers with bigger focal flowers. 

Flower ingredients included: cosmos, Queen Annes Lace, dahlias, lisianthus, roses, amaranth, thornless blackberries, and other foraged greenery. 

For this styled shoot, not only did the Lily Flowers team source the most beautiful flowers from local Tasmanian flower growers, but they created the arbour without using any floral foam or other unsustainable floristry tools. 

We love a styling that supports local businesses and is environmentally sustainable!

The Willow Lawn: The Perfect Romantic Tasmanian Ceremony Venue

We created this ceremony styling on our gorgeous Willow Lawn at our venue, The Tailrace Centre. The lawn is surrounded by tall trees that create the most stunning dappled light in the afternoons. 

Ornamental apple trees frame the front of the lawn which change with the with seasons. From golds and fire reds in autumn to spring blossoms to lush green. These stunning trees are forever changing and add plenty of character to the lawn. At the time of this shoot the trees were just beginning to show the first signs of autumn, but were otherwise a lush green. 

Our Willow Lawn is truly the perfect spot for romantic Tasmanian wedding ceremony as you get to enjoy the Tasmanian outdoors while still being only a few minutes from the centre of Launceston.

Styling the Groom

The lovely Maddy and Issac played dress up with us and modelled as our bride and groom for this stunning wedding styled shoot. 

Routleys Launceston dressed Issac in a neutral toned suit that perfectly suited the natural tones of our wedding styling.

We love the look that the team at Routleys chose, the natural tones stand out beautifully against the dark green of the lawn and the berry tones of the arbour. 

The suit is still very formal, but it adds a softness to the event. This suit looked perfect in the golden sunlight of the setting sun.

Styling the Bride

The team at Honey Fawn Boutique dressed Maddy in a stunning A-Line Wedding Gown with beautiful detailing on the bodice. We wanted a dress that felt romantic and complimented both Maddy and the whimsical elements of the styling. 
The dress has a nude toned under layer which beautifully complimented the warmer florals. 
The full skirt was perfect for catching the sunlight and added a fairytale feel to the entire look. 
 

One Girls Obsessions created a stunning bridal makeup look for Maddy and Chloe Rose Hairstylist styled Maddy’s hair into perfect waves.
