Bohemian Bride on the Farm Inspiration

16th November 2014

I was recently asked to be in a gorgeous styled shoot with a bohemian bridal theme, set on a property in Maleny in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. So I said to myself, I said, “Sally, why not? Go for it girlfriend! Enjoy!” Then I donned a pair of boots and scooted up the range to be a model for the day.  I felt a little like a fish out of water, as I’m far better accustomed with being behind the scenes in my sneakers and jeans than all dolled up in a dress!

A perfect day. A perfect location. The perfect team of Sunshine Coast wedding professionals on hand to create something truly beautiful.  Romantic, pretty vintage with a Victorian-style double-ended couch in a toothsome blue-grey, an extension of the perfect clear blue sky.  //// This styled shoot has been lovingly photographed by someone who I would describe as a true artist and perfectionist. I am of course referring to Sunshine Coast wedding photographer, Matt Rowe Photography. And oh boy, did his eye go a-wandering over some spectacular sights at Maleny Botanic Gardens.

6th May 2014

Oh snap! Cold snap, that is… For those here on the Sunshine Coast, you will know what I’m talking about. The past couple of days, it’s as though the weather just realised it was no longer Summer and decided to finally fall into line and become the middle of Autumn.
