I had the privilege of being asked to be a part of several very cool themed weddings last year. This is from one – that of Ross & Magenta. It was a Rockabilly Style theme in red, black and white.
Ross & Magenta got ready in 2 rooms at opposite ends in a little hotel/motel with it’s own pub literally in the middle of nowhere – making it a very relaxed and fun affair. I got to bounce from one room with the boys to the other with the girls and it was a great atmosphere!
They had the ceremony and reception at the Kooroomba Lavender Farm and Vineyard, which was an absolutely stunning backdrop of rolling purple lavender fields and vineyards, not to mention the barn style restaurant. Although the weather was particularly crazy resulting in the ceremony having to be moved inside at the last minute due to it being very windy, that didn’t stop us braving the weather the getting some amazing shots! While outside amongst vines with the storm clouds rolling in over the mountains we all stopped and looked at each other and yelled “run!!” – and bolted through the rows of lavender to pile through the doors, high heels in hands, just as it came pouring down – to the cheers of the onlooking guests. Just as quickly as it had arrived it then disappeared leaving a stunning backdrop of a spectacular sunset through rain drenched windows and a beautiful rainbow cascading over the lavender.
The inside of the restaurant was dressed by Styled Events from West End, providing amazing candelabras and sweet cherry covered chairs for the bridal party. The absolute piece de resistance though was the fabulous topsy turvy wedding cake with its brilliant personalised cake topper, which had the bride and groom sporting all of their usual tattoos and piercings, making it unmistakably them.
Ross & Magenta – Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your uber amazing wedding!
