HER STORY. HER ROMANCE. Inspired by nature, this styled shoot tells the story of a girl spending the day in the surrounds of her local chapel. She has always been a wanderer and an explorer. Dreaming of what is to come, she dresses in her mother's & sisters' wedding dresses. 'Her Romance' is a self exploration; finding the true love and light within oneself.

Naturally light

Nestled deep within the age-old eucalyptus trees of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, Tanglewood Estate is a secret garden, set on more than 100 acres of bushland and situated within the scenic landscape of Merricks North. The property is surrounded by beautiful flora native to the area, acres of grapevines and a dam with timber deck and jetty. With a stylish and modern take on traditional country aesthetic, built of natural woods and rustic sheet metals, great care has been taken in the exterior and interior design of the property, to ensure the presence of its classic Australian feel is preserved.

A historic 110-year-old wooden chapel from Woomelang in country Victoria has been lovingly relocated and restored. Nestled among the trees, the chapel windows let in natural light and offer a view of Port Phillip Bay. With a stripped back exterior, the Chapel blends into the natural environment.

The florals

For dreamy, romantic and floral styling, an abundance of apricot roses, baby's breath and other blooms were paired with masses of native greenery. As a feature of the chapel florals were complemented with dark drapery and black pillar candles.
