Autumn Mini Wedding Styled Shoot

Autumn Mini Wedding Styled Shoot

Some couples choose a small guest list not necessarily because their budget is tight, but because they want to have an elegant and intimate wedding, with things that really matter.

Why have a mini wedding?

Amanda Knapton a local Marriage Celebrant, who has been planning Elopements & Mini weddings for the last 8 years noticed “There is an overall trend towards minimalism and simplicity, and that goes for weddings too.”

“Planning a traditional wedding takes a great deal of time and energy,” Cassie Bedford from Bedford Photography said. “So many people are overwhelmed just dealing with the pressures of day-to-day life; they simply don’t want the added stress of orchestrating a large event”.

The styling

With our amazing team from Pop Up Elopements we created a magical and elegant wedding ceremony, whilst keeping the day intimate and fun.

The Red Radish Terrace at Rydges Cronulla Beachside was the perfect venue to cater for our beautiful Photoshoot.  Rydges Cronulla is the most suited ‘I do’ location for romance in coastal, beachside style.

Our Styling and floral guru Yolande from Floral fix, brought her creativity and imagination together creating the most breathtaking arbour which framed the Bride and Groom.

Yolande took inspiration from Autumn tones in the Mountains, combined with a surfside backdrop, creating a magical display of varied tones rich in yellows, toffees, oranges, reds, oranges and every hue in between. “I wanted to recreate an Autumns day in the mountains, contrasted against the warm blue tones of the ocean, using a gorgeous array of unexpected blooms and lots of textures and foliage”.

“After many years of blush and crisp white colour palates for weddings, in 2020 you will see a shift to muddy tones and lots of dried flowers and foliage being incorporated into the floral displays”.

Amanda Knapton – Our Marriage Celebrant – crafted an intimate and personalised wedding ceremony, setting the scene for a fun and relaxed vibe for the rest of the day.

Capturing the Special Moments

All the amazing images were capture by the very talented Cassie from Bedford Photography.   Cassie’s creative flair seamlessly captures all the special moments, creating images with integrity and something extra special that is unique to your story.

Mini reception

In the same way, the style and feel of a mini wedding ceremony is customised to suit the couple. Receptions for mini weddings can also be tailored to reflect the couple’s needs. Rhiannon, Conference & Events Sales Executive from Rydges Beachside Cronulla said “we are always happy to tailor a food and beverage package to best suit the couple’s individual requirements”.
