As seen in Polka Dot Bride
‘Magnolia Bride’ was inspired by the glorious magnolias of Mt Macedon’s Cameron Lodge – one of Australia’s oldest hill station gardens – and set against a backdrop of spring blooms, ancient tree canopies and impressive period architecture. The cinematic-style photography of @kirstyduchet_ captures the magnificence and scale of the setting and the timeless elegance of gowns created by five of Australia’s most celebrated bridal designers – @gwendolynne, @annacampbellbridal, @jasongrech, @kwhbridal and @janehillbridal
Antique lounge furniture, tarnished vintage silver, crystal vessels and a French chandelier feature as part of set styling by Darling Don’t Panic. Contrasted by feminine, romantic floral design by @flowersinavase1 and sweet macarons by Dessert Diva, each hand selected piece complements and enhances a feeling of ageing grandeur in a secret garden.
