Styled Shoot :: Mediterranean Magic at Taverna, Kingscliff Tweed Coast Wedding Photographer

We were lucky enough to photograph + film this incredibly dreamy shoot to launch one of the Tweed Coast’s newest boutique wedding venues, Taverna.

Here are a few words from the stylist, Ivy & Bleu – “For the styling of this gorgeous shoot for Kingscliff’s new exclusive wedding venue “Taverna” our brief was simple. Elegant styling that showcased this stunning venue for everything it already is. Offering ceramic plates & wafer thin glassware set amongst crisp white linens and perfectly complimented by the most divine shade of soft mint green – our job wasn’t at all a task. Being a food lover’s haven we choose a floral accent of Kale and soft hues of lavender to accentuate the existing colour palette. Wispy hints of grey chiffon running through the centre with a focal silver floral pedestal and simple crisp stationery of white linen card and fig & date accessories completed this setting. The day was moody and soft spattering of rain showed us that with the heavens opening photographic creativity is at its best play.”

Tell us a little about your day…
We had the most wonderful day, everything fell into place so perfectly. We were incredibly grateful to have our family and friends there to share in our happiness. The sun was shining, there was lots of tears and laughter, and so much love. It was everything we had hoped for.

What was your fave part or moment from your day?
Definitely the ceremony, it was sweet and simple but also very meaningful. Having our closest family and friends there to love and support us, in such a beautiful location. We just couldn’t stop smiling!

Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Just relax and try to take it all in! Everything will come together on the day, and all the little worries you had will be insignificant compared to the happiness you will feel. Also enjoy the process, some of our favourite memories are of time spent with friends and family planning for and leading up to the big day!

Sherie + Jeremy :: Earth House Bangalow Wedding Photography, Byron Bay Hinterland Wedding Photography

 

“At every point of contact, Figtree Photography went above and beyond to accommodate us. We had a combined package with two photographers and videography.. which was just perfect for us. Brenden & Alice shot for us on the day. They are both so warm and lovely! We shared so many laughs together and they totally help alleviate any anxiety or stress about having pictures taken. We’ve dealt with every one of the team at Figtree and at each point of contact, they all go the extra mile. We are so grateful for the wonderful job they have done capturing our day. The details, all of our guests, the expressions on faces, the candid moments… if anything was happening, the Figtree team managed to get it. We’ve watched our video countless times and each time is just as special as the first. It goes without saying we would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone.” – Sherie + Jeremy

 

Tell us a little about your day…
We were so blessed to get the most stunning Easter Saturday and were married under a fig tree at Earth House, just out of Bangalow. We wanted a relaxed, fun vibe, a wedding that reflected who we are as people.. and it was everything we could of asked for and more.

What was your fave part or moment from your day?
Amongst so, so many… relaxing on the deck at our venue together as husband and wife, after the last guests had just departed. We took a moment to reflect on what a magical day it had been. It is the most humbling feeling to have everyone you care about in your life gathered at the one place, all to celebrate you and your love for each other. Its something words just can’t describe.

Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Soak up every minute. Without sounding cliché.. it really is the most incredible day of your life. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Take 5 minutes alone together at some time during the day.. its so nice just to debrief and articulate how you are both feeling. It is such an emotional day. Finally, invest in videography… it is worth every penny!

Terri + Chase :: Toowoomba Wedding Photography, Brisbane Wedding Photographer

“The whole Figtree team are amazing, our photographers got switched around the day before the wedding due to cyclone Debbie and roads being cut off but they sorted everything out before we even knew there was a problem. The team were so lovely and made us feel extremely comfortable. They did an amazing job and went above and beyond to capture every moment from start to finish. We can’t thank you enough! xx”

Tell us a little about your day…
We had the most magical day and everything turned out better then we could have hoped. It was made even more special being able to get married at our home that we worked so hard on for months along with close family and friends to get the property looking so beautiful for our big day. Our tipi from Tipi Luxe looked stunning along with our tipi arbour my father made us the day before!

What was your fave part or moment from your day?
I don’t think we could pick one favourite part, our whole day was absolutely amazing. One funny moment that stands out though is when Chase’s ring didn’t fit and we struggled for quite some time to get it on (haha, what’s a wedding without a hiccup of some sort).

Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Enjoy every moment and take it all in as best you can because the day goes sooooo fast and before you know it, it’s all over! And hang in there for your beautiful photos because going through them all is like re-living the day all over again.

“We honestly can’t thank you enough for capturing every part of our day so perfectly. I never imagined that our photos could look so amazing! Thank you!”

Tell us a little about your day…
Our day couldn’t have been more perfect! It was relaxed and so much fun! We felt so lucky to have all our family and friends to celebrate with us.

What was your fave part or moment from your day?
A moment we will never forget is when we had just walked back down the aisle after being married and were greeted by all the people we care about who were so happy for us. We also loved being able to share amazing food and have a drink in the most beautiful location!

Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
