"For this shoot we were aiming for a minimalist, feminine, modern, luxe feel. The venue, Secret Tower, was absolutely perfect for this, the huge windows on all sides flooded the room with natural light and the white walls gave it such a fresh feeling. The bride wore a selection of delicate, ethereal dresses from Y.A.P Bridal, which were perfectly complemented by the stunning earrings and headpieces from Lilley Studio. We paired these with a classic black tux for the groom." - Phoebe Jane Photography


"For this shoot, we opted for two bouquets. Both luxe, divine and classic but with modern shapes of asymmetrically tied and contrasting each other. The only rose bouquet has been a classic for years but in more of a domed shape. Whereas this tiered bundle offers texture and depth whilst only using one kind of stem. Whereas the pastel bundle uses lots of different textures and pastel colours to bring all elements of the shoot together. We also used dyed tulips in our arrangements, these are one of our personal favourites as the colour in the petals comes through strained and each strain has its own shade. We use our own unique methods to arrange the tulips so they’re fully bloomed. Little delicate textures were used throughout this shoot, including some of our dainty votives in Matt black with linen wheat tablecloths and napkins paired with the elegance of a scalloped edge charger plate." - Sprig and Thistle - Florist & Event Styling

Modern Wedding Ideas

The Secret Tower in Newcastle was the perfect location to showcase this less is more approach and capturing all the magic was talented, Phoebe Jane Photography who enlisted the help of wedding suppliers to showcase these modern wedding ideas in the most gorgeous way. I don't know about you but we're also inspired to dust off our makeup palettes this weekend and pop on our favourite headband to see if we can recreate this bride's flawless look. Anyone else going au natural during lockdown?

Maggie Sottero ‘Meletta’ - Layers of romantic soft tulle effortlessly billow with enchanting femininity! Madi Lane Bridal ‘Mila’ - all about the botanical floral influences with softly draped lace sleeves; the epitome of an Australian designed wedding gown!" - Y.A.P Bridal - Bridalwear


"Helping to bring this modern, luxe shoot to life was an absolute dream. My personal goal was to create a fresh, high-end look, starting as always with a flawless base. I incorporated peachy tones on the eyes and cheeks, created a flattering blown-out winged liner and a complimentary red lip. As we moved through the different dresses, I also wanted to show how easily your bridal look can change throughout your day, with a quick lipstick change, a different blusher or a sweep of eyeshadow. I really enjoyed working with our model Fee’s super short hair. Switching up the headpieces, and making simple changes to the hairstyle throughout the shoot, really showed that you don’t have to have long hair on your wedding day. Versatility is achievable at any length. Rock that pixie cut!" - MUBYLEIGH - Hair & Makeup Artist


"I wanted this suite to be all about layering of different textures. Beautiful nude handmade paper with a vellum overlay, finished with a delicate floral white wax seal." - Rosewood Co - Stationery
