We're starting off this new week in Sydney, Australia with a romantic and intimate rainy day wedding shoot by AMELIA SOEGIJONO. Captured at the beautiful HOPEWOOD HOUSE it features a gorgeous VERA WANG wedding gown, stunning paper goods from SENIMAN CALLIGRAPHY and florals by JARDINE BOTANIC.
Amelia tells us, "I was drawn to the thoughts of creating a shoot with the most heartfelt and precious intimate wedding or elopement where a bride gets to spend precious time with his groom instead of just going through the motions of a wedding schedule. The handsome groom serenades his wife to be with some romantic tunes on the piano just before the ceremony at the grand mansion's living room and they get to cuddle and giggle and skipped in the rain creating memories that will last a lifetime. The surroundings of the grand mansion HOPEWOOD HOUSE were the perfect backdrop for this couple. Little peacocks, chickens and the lush greens were fresh and feels like a secret place. To end this beautiful romance celebration, we photographed a few scenes from the morning after where the blushing bride celebrated being together with her husband for the most amazing journey in their lives as a married couple!"
From stylist SIERRA RAMKE, "Romanced by a fairy tale of prince charming and his ethereal beauty, this Editorial features an element of modern classic styling with touches of intimate and almost undone detailing. Paulina our dreamy bride wears a more sophisticated, hand embroidered Vera Wang gown for her Ceremony, styled effortlessly with a single tier cathedral veil. Alex in his classic double breasted linen jacket appears fresh, yet almost old world, a fitting look for the beautifully styled Hopewood mansion. As the night unfolds Paulina in all her natural beauty reveals a softer more subdued bridal ensemble, her tousled natural wavy hair complementing her beautifully beaded, long sleeved lace Vera Wang gown. In styling this beautiful editorial I wanted to encapsulate an element of modern sophistication, yet celebrate the old world charm found at Hopewood house. From the moment you arrive at Hopewood your transcended into another era and in our wardrobe styling we wanted to inspire a new, modern vintage feel."
