The 80’s Never Looked So Good

Are you ready to geek out over the 80’s era? Here’s an 80’s inspired wedding shoot that will give you a mighty good excuse to do just that.

Three Little Birds Studio captured this shoot and explained, “As barn loving, outdoorsy photographers, we wanted to breath a little new life into the traditional neutral coloured, soft, barn wedding and have a little fun.

We got our inspiration from our models mothers wedding dress. That’s right, this gorgeous dress is straight out of the scrunchie wearing, bright coloured-loving 1980’s. Although this dress does feature the signature ‘poofy sleeve’ they fall gracefully off the shoulders, which gave it a hint of free loving prairie girl. So with the 80’s color and funk, and a hippie sense of earthy-ness we ended up with a bright, fun, new take on not only the barn wedding, but we also like to think we are bringing the 80’s back. Who knows [we’ll] maybe start a trend taking bridal pictures in mammas dress.”

Rebecca and Brett’s Magnetic Island Wedding

There’s a special kind of glow around this couple and their wedding photos captured by Noble Photography.

Rebecca and Brett chose to wed on a white sandy beach on Magnetic Island, followed by their reception at Lotus House also located on the Island. Rebecca and Brett chose the location because they had previously fallen in love with the island when they holidayed there for Rebecca’s fathers birthday.

It’s easy to see why they feel in love with the location, as the stunning Island is located just a short Ferry ride across from Townsville and is situated in the beautiful Great Barrier Reef. More than half of the Island is untouched National Park and consists of some of the most beautiful beaches, rainforests and lookouts.

Prior to the wedding the groomsmen got ready at the spectacular Villa Kembali, while the bride and bridesmaids got ready at Lotus House in a Balinese style Villa situated directly on the beach in Horseshoe Bay.

Andrew of Noble Photography recalls, “I arrived a few days early to have a look around, suss out natural lighting at the time of the wedding and to see why Brett and Rebecca loved this place so much. To my surprise the Island itself was fairly quiet. Each day more and more guests arrived, filling up the Resorts and Hotels. It almost had the feeling of a private little island with the wedding party having the run of the beach and the local pub and stretching wedding celebrations over a few days. It was a magical wedding, with a sweet, young couple, with wonderful friends and family, full of fun and laughter.”

Here’s what we love about this wedding: The elegant garden reception with pretty lanterns hanging above the tables, the bride’s ballerina bun hairstyle, the bridesmaids pale blue dresses, and of course the amazing location.

Chris and Robin’s Wilderness Wedding

This is one of those oh-so special weddings; this wedding shows us that a beautiful wedding can be a simple wedding without all the fuss.

Venturing back to the very spot where Chris got down on one knee to ask Robin to be his wife, these two lovebirds exchanged vows and sweet moments in an intimate ceremony full of love and laughter.

Tonie Christine Photography captured the beautiful wedding and commented, “With the grand backdrop of the mountains of the quaint city these two now call home, Robin and Chris left their mark on the hillside in Leavenworth, Washington.”

Robin adores all things unique and rustic, so she wore a wonderful navy and white lace wedding dress and chose to have a charming rustic wilderness picnic reception.
