Rutherglen Convent // Styled Shoot
Now I know you readers love a unique venue and imagery that is full of feels, insanely sophisticated styling, unique ideas and floor to ceiling floral arrangements so I wanted you to see this first!!!! Hot off the presses is a styled shoot done for the newest, hottest, amazingnest venue in Rutherglen and it is awesome and the owners of this incredible building are young and full of energy, have a great eye for style and will make sure the wedding experience for clients is end to end amazing and did I say that there is accommodation as well at this incredible venue….I mean if you are inviting your people from all corners of Australia (or even the world!) to come and celebrate together then this is the place! It has all the mod cons but also gives a nod (and a cheeky wink) to the history and character of this Rutherglen icon!
We had an awesome day – with a brilliant team of local suppliers that just have so much energy and passion for what they do – we had some help from fab metro friends Event Merchant Co. , the incredible Karen Willis Holmes, accessory goddesses Amelie George and new kids on the block Chandellier Rose!!!! We know that elopements and outfit changes are super hot atm and so we started out with a gorgeous suit and then literally slipped into party mode! Florals were a celebration of fresh and pretty by our favourite Thistle & Fern who we are so excited to say are getting back into wedding floristry. Soft greens, pinks and crisp white arrangements with grapes in the arrangements, foraged figs on the plates and clusters of gorgeous local quartz tell the story of the foundations of our community – gold, agriculture and grapes – way back in the mirage of the distant past when John Wallace shouted a drink at the bar if he could name the town after his home town in Scotland. Fresh pieces and umbrellas out the front of the building offer a beautiful contrast of contemporary and traditional, a really amazing contrast against the red bricks of the facade and shelter from the NE Victorian sun which loves to shine pretty much every day (sorry Melbourne but it does!!!!) Your guests can stand out here and take in the view over the vineyards and wonder at our big, blue skies!
I am so excited to be able to use such gorgeous pieces on these styled shoots it just lifts the imagery and thus the impact of the shoot to a whole other level. Having such an energetic team of suppliers – and such a gorgeous model – that are all so willing to collaborate is a dream! For wedding suppliers in regional Victoria simply because of distance it can be difficult to access gorgeous products for shoots and I think we show your readers that you can book all your vendors from this region and save big time on those travel costs which can go toward your bar bill on your honeymoon!!!!
