Styled Shoot: Old World Romance

5th March 2015

Take a moment to be inspired by Old World romance, where occasions were celebrated with tables filled full of food, overfilled pewter cups full of red wine and unstructured blooms picked for the heady aromas and beautiful colours.    Concept and styling by CL Weddings and Events, while Jodi McDonald has taken these glorious images.          Strong bold colours, rich and elegant, using a colour palette of soft greys, charcoal, berry reds and touches of soft pink.    Antique cutlery, pewter and silverware our styling had touches of both old and new.    A great wedding should always have food…

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.
