FRENCH PROVINCIAL INSPIRED SHOOT

French Provincial ‘Delicate’ shoot is a Country coming together during some of the hardest times it has seen in the past 100 years. It involved all six states and the Northern Territory. Australia, like everywhere else at the moment, can be found somewhere along the unknown trajectory that is COVID-19. However, both despite and during the pandemic, businesses from all over Australia pulled together and supported each other as part of a dreamy collaboration.

The wedding industry, like a lot of industries, is currently heaving under the weight of postponements, cancellations, and sometimes conflicting and confusing government guidelines. It seemed the perfect time to focus on creating some magic together and, in turn, lifting collective spirits. Therefore, the shoot was as joyful and light as the colour palette. Many Australians enjoy spending spring in Europe.

It will be a while before we can pound cobblestone footpaths in Prague, sip rose while watching the sun dip over Santorini, or sample chocolates in Belgium. The team brought Europe – France, in particular – to our own backyard. We channelled relaxed Southern France vibes and created a springinspired elopement oasis within in the vineyards of Sarabah Estate and Winery. The Queensland-based venue provided the perfect backdrop to showcase all elements, including silk ribbons and ring box from New South Wales, cufflinks from Victoria, French oak leaf brooch from Tasmania, shoes from South Australia, ceramic flowers and stationery from Western Australia, and a beeswax wrap from the Northern Territory.

This shoot took place during a time of social distancing. The impact of this requirement had ripple effects. Our couple had to be real-life. The wedding party also required some consideration. We had some options: a) no wedding party, b) an awkwardly socially distanced wedding party, or c) a COVID-19-safe alpaca party. The resulting decision was unanimous: option c.

The alpaca party – Sam, Jack & Napoleon – did not disappoint. From eating roses plucked straight from floral arrangements to a quick dust bath during reception to photo-bombing sunset portraits, the alpaca party was in fine form. The team weaved vintage elements throughout the shoot. The gold amethyst bracelet and soft pink gloves were provided by Marisha, a stylist, and were taken from her mum’s & grandmother’s collections (Evelyn & Vivienne, respectively; our stationery incorporated a nod to the inclusions from these ladies). Needless to say, the gloves are a common accessory on people’s minds at the moment and seemed representative of this snapshot in time. In line with threading some elements of yesteryear throughout the shoot, Emily (photographer) embroidered some small pieces.

We incorporated some elements of sustainability, too. Some of the items were sourced through op shopping – such as the painted purple plate, plates for the table setting, platter used for grazing, and the dessert forks. The beeswax wrap continued the theme of sustainability when making day-to-day choices. Some hurdles to be overcome: 

· The shoot needed to be in line with current guidelines (1.5 m distancing; our couple is real-life) 

· It needed to be bright and cheerful; it needed to provide a positive outlet for all individuals involved 

· It needed to be cohesive despite so many moving parts 

· It needed to overcome country-wide delays (everything arrived with one postal day to spare!) 

· It required everyone present on the day to be in full health (it was shot during a cluster of infections in Brisbane at that time) 

· At least one business pushed through with a staff member away while awaiting test results 

· A food vendor pulled out last-minute due to having to be tested; they were replaced on the Friday night of the Sunday shoot.

ABOUT THE VENDORS.

The shoot was a perfect marriage of stylists, artisans and service providers:
Poppy and Sage Photography – Planning and Co-ordinating this shoot was an emotional journey. I love to bring ideas to life through collaboration and capture but this one was for all of Australia. As a team we achieved representation of every State and Territory while being mindful of the environment (various sustainable components). Personally, I ticked off some bucket lists shots in this shoot and enjoyed documenting every minute, so much heart and soul went into every detail. 

Sarabah Estate Winery -  Featuring the Chalet for preparation, rolling green hills for the Ceremony and olive grove Reception. 

Magnolia Studios - Creating this gorgeous shoot with Emily was such a pleasure. When Emily first discussed her idea for the shoot with me, I liked the concept and the challenge to create something original and authentic but the more I delved into creating the intricate details of the shoot the more I fell in love. With the request to include some vintage elements I immediately turned to my grandmother's collection of gorgeous pieces and was delighted to be able to include her beautiful gold filigree bracelet, gloves and hat box and a variety of crystal ware. Having the opportunity to work with this diverse team, spanning Australia wide (thanks to Emily's tireless determination) not only created this truly beautiful shoot but allowed us to support our industry through the tough times of Covid-19. 

Tyneale Hahn Makeup Artist - I loved creating the hair and makeup looks for our beautiful Bridal muse, it was important to give elegance and detail to compliment without taking over (this goes for every Bride!). I chose to create two polished hairstyles teamed with a makeup look to softly feature porcelain skin but allow the eyes to hold all the emotion and detail. 

Lala Design - Romantic styled stationery created by Lala Design; Using traditional cotton paper, printed antique gold tones ink, complimented with soft water colour florals in tones of peach and pink. Finished with gold leaf accents, wax seals and a custom dyed silk ribbon.

Tijana Kozarcic - Harpist (President of the Harp Society of Queensland): No matter what occasion, harp music will add a note of elegance, sophistication and exclusivity to your event. Specifically tailored to your wedding, corporate event or private party, solo harp music or music of a duo or trio with harp are bound to trigger a wow effect with your guests. I work solo or collaborate with local Queensland musicians creating classical, popular, contemporary or jazz arrangements for harp and ensembles with harp. Finally, two members of the team are healthcare workers – the groom muse and the ceramicist are both practicing doctors on the east and west coasts of Australia. As a team, we would welcome the opportunity to both recognise and express appreciation for the hardworking healthcare workers relentlessly managing the current healthcare crisis.
