Classic country charm meets modern Mediterranean.
We’ve totally enthralled ourselves in Byron Bay Weddings’ latest photo shoot at the enchanting Fig Tree Restaurant. A collaboration of local talent creating a unique take on wedding styling with a lush ambience.
The Wedding Shed, Byron Bay’s go-to for all furniture and décor hire teamed up with Stylist, Ky Drury, to execute this new look on the wedding scene. The concept promotes a beautiful synergy between the booming slow floral movement in Australia and bespoke styling. The ladies from Bramblehaus, one of Byron’s most sought-after contemporary wedding florists, explore this effortlessly. Inspiration from local winter flowering orchids, in an unexpected palette that is at once both rich and fresh. Bramblehaus are one of the leaders in the Australian event industry for their environmental ethos and remain pioneers of the ‘Slow Flower’ movement in Australia with an emphasis on using in-season flowers, grown as close to the event as possible.
Elements of olive green, rust, muted nude, natural stone slabs, paua shells and earthy clay ceramics from Pãn Pottery feature throughout. Warmth and luxury are elevated with chalk white linens, natural timber textures and minor gold detail.
Layers upon layers come into play here too, manifesting a bespoke tablescape that is rich in character and seamlessly carries over theme. A sense of abundance is created with organic forms and shapes to fuse with the pure grandeur of these blooms, whilst interest and depth is composed via different textures and tones.
The poolside cocktail styling invites a luxe resort aesthetic with a contemporary Santorini edge. The approach of refined styling certainly lingers across, in clean all-white structures that are softened with an assortment of earthy detail in gold dipped agate, pillar candles, ceramics and minimal botanicals.
Fig Tree Restaurant’s iconic ceremony area takes centre stage yet again as the jaw-dropping feature of the venue. A gold geometric arbour draped in flowers and foliage at different heights stands bold against the stunning 150-year-old Moreton Bay fig tree. Panoramic hinterland to ocean views accompany, uplifting the aura even more so with just how beautiful Byron Bay truly is.
