Tree Elle Retreat is located between Denmark and Walpole in Western Australia. The property boasts four self-contained houses and is surrounded by 5 acres of stunning gardens. We fell in love with the relaxed lush green setting and couldn’t have imagined a more perfect place to host our wedding.

The ceremony: We wanted to keep our ceremony setup very simple and create a ceremony arbour that looked like it was a part of the gardens. The arch was built specifically for the occasion and Lush Floral Designs covered it in lots of greenery and textural foliage.

The cocktail hour: A relaxed garden party vibe was created for our guests with the laid-back sounds of Bella Blakemore’s acoustic guitar, while they enjoyed canapes and “his” and “hers” cocktails.

The reception: guests were seated under a clear marquee where they could still enjoy the scenery of the gardens and the beautiful colours created from the setting sun. Pepper & Salt served an AMAZING meal and then guests danced the night away under the stars.

Our wedding could not have been any more “us” and we truly believe that staying true to who you are is the most important element to remember when planning your wedding. Allow the day to tell a story of you and your relationship.

Modern Minimalist Bridal Inspiration | Styled Shoot | The Flour Factory

Featured on Style Me Pretty

The inspiration for this shoot was born from a love of simplicity and texture. The floral installations take centre stage of this editorial with the layering of lush textures to create a fresh, simple yet stunning backdrop for our couple. The colour palette and florals were kept very neutral and fresh, with delicate blooming branches to allow the design to breathe and not overpower the intricate details of the hand beaded gown and simple tablescape. White tones and minimalistic details were used for the table top, with stonewashed linen, gold flatware, handmade taper holders and modern menus featuring a delicate floral design.
