STYLED SHOOT: Tasmanian Micro Wedding 

 Garden Party Edition.

Creating the Perfect Summer Garden Party Micro Wedding Styling. 

In Tasmania we get all 4 seasons, even sometimes all in the one day. In Spring, our cities are lined with cherry blossoms and magnolias in full bloom and our gardens are dotted with daffodils and tulips.  In Summer our state can be hot and dry. In autumn our trees turn to copper and blackberries and brambles take over the country side. But in winter, you see a mix of barren tress and lush evergreens. 

For this wedding styling we leaned into soft, pastel hues. Blush pinks, creamy whites and splashes of blues. Dahlia’s, sweet-scented garden roses, delphiniums and pincushions. 

The ceremony florals were a semi-circle of wildflowers. Natural, beautiful and whimsical. 

Captured by Luelle Images and created by Tailrace Weddings at the Tailrace Centre, Launceston, this is one wedding styling to add to your summer and spring wedding mood boards.

Styling the Wedding Tables: Creating the Romantic Look.

Working with a colour palette of pastel tones with bright pops, we collaborated with a team of incredible local vendors to create the look. Lily Flowers sourced beautiful blooms for us from local Tasmanian flower farmers and created a mix of floral arrangements. For the guest tables, each long table had one brighter arrangement in the middle of the table with softer, more pastel toned arrangements on the ends of the tables. 

They also created a gorgeous, low lying bridal table arrangement. 

White taper candles in glass holders from our own styling cupboard were dotted down the length of the table. To make the table look extra delightful we tied satin bows around the candle base. 

For the table numbers we used our black acrylic numbers with a white base. These were created for us by the incredible team at Silver Belle Design. We loved the way the black table numbers stood out on the table and contrasted against the white linens and candles.

TIP: Why you Should Create Space on Your Wedding Tables

For this look it was important to leave space and keep the flowers feeling airy and whimsical. 

Space is an important thing to have on your wedding tables. Your wedding reception is first and foremost a meal and there are lots of practical items that need to fit on you table during the event. 

You also want your guests to be able to see and talk to the people they are sitting with. While a huge arrangement can look beautiful, your guests will often wish they could move it elsewhere so they can talk.

Styling the Room: Welcome Sign, Cake, Champagne Tower & Bridal Table.


Silver Belle Designs provided our styling with the most gorgeous welcome sign which we styled in from of the bridal table and cake tableBlossom Cakes by Rhi created a gorgeous two-tiered vintage piped wedding cake which we styled on our cake barrel with a white tablecloth and textured fabric over the top.  

We added a mini champagne tower on a taller table behind the cake to add even more dimension to the space. 

These items were placed with the bridal table against a window backdrop to create a beautiful focal point for the room.
