Styled Shoot: Flowers by the Waterfront

18th February 2015

  Oh how we adore this romantic, whimsical wedding styling inspiration. The location for this styled shoot was Noosa Waterfront Restaurant & Bar, and what we find most delightful about this Noosa wedding venue is that it’s entirely possible to have a pretty garden wedding and an absolute waterfront wedding in one.  The soft pastel florals by Buderim Floral Art perfectly complement the location and the amazing concept styling by Sunshine Coast boutique wedding styling and planning agency, Lovebird Weddings.  It’s no secret we are big fans of Karen Buckle Photography here at The Bride’s Tree, and with these amazing…

Yellow, Grey and White Cake

14th May 2013

A colour scheme we absolutely adore is yellow, grey and white. It’s pretty, but has the perfect combination of feminine and masculine when executed right. Such as with this gorgeous wedding cake, created by the scrummiest lady around, Skye from Sunny Girl Cakes. Just going to show, your colour theme can be followed through to even your wedding cake with subtlety. Being that your wedding cake is the centrepiece to your wedding, the culmination of the celebration that is your joining in marriage with the love of your life, you want to get it right and make an impact. This…
