Blackwattle Farm Low 47

Blackwattle Farm Styled Shoot

A collaboration of very talented  local Sunshine Coast wedding suppliers, came together to showcase and celebrate the opening of Blackwattle Farm for Elopement bookings.

Blackwattle Farm is a gorgeous 20 acre hobby farm at the base of the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains Queensland Sunshine Coast. The farm has numerous vistas couples can use for their ceremony, picnic, & photographs featuring a gorgeous homestead, rustic buildings, and majestic views of the Glasshouse Mountains, lush green paddocks, a photographer’s dream of a driveway, interactive farm animals & accommodation for six guests!

Blackwattle Farm will open its doors to couples looking for the ideal romantic country Elopement venue. Catering for groups of 2-20, you can celebrate your intimate wedding in true farm style

We are very, very excited about shooting weddings at this venue…

Cat from Woods and Bloom created a loose unstructured bouquet containing tendrils of foraged honeysuckle, home grown ginger scented geranium, organically locally grown apricot David Austin roses, and white nerine, hyacinth , thryptomene, snapdragons, blue sea holly, pepper berry foliage, privet berry , apricot protea and orange dahlias  from the flower growers markets. Vintage ribbon from New Orleans was used on the bouquets handle. While the bouquet design has wild elements, the size was carefully considered to still allow the shorter curving hem of the wedding dress to feature.

Cat used as many locally and organically grown blooms and vintage products as she could to not only reflect the eco-friendly values of Woods & Bloom but also further reinforce the links to the organic growing practice on Black Wattle Farm.

Our tantalising gourmet picnic for two from Village Food and Events, picking a picturesque location within the farm for a dreamy, lazy afternoon feast, who wouldn’t enjoy that!  All locally sourced & handmade produce, Martine’s picnics are made with Love, and packed full with goodies.

Our choice of dress & grooms style was not your traditional classic style, but suited to the relaxed, fun atmosphere of the farm. Marilyn Crystelle created a short, strapless gown with lace detail for Bridgette to wear. A fun dress, suitable for a farm wedding!

Sandi from Rolling scissors & Melina of Melina Dee Make Up Artistry created a relaxed up style with loose tendrils falling around Bridgette’s face.

Mack wore slouch chino’s with a chambre shirt with French navy cuff detail. His hand made wooden bow tie from Wood and Beau with its detail fitted so well with the setting of the farm & complimented Bridgette’s dress.

Our day was filled with so much fun, especially with Willow the miniature pig making her debut!

Thank you to Emma & Mark for having us.
