Barnyard kind of Love

This wedding we styled at Tocal Homestead in Hunter Valley was rustic and romantic. It was also tailored to the wedded couple who were musicians.

Tocal was a memorable wedding location rich in history and natural beauty.

The styling mixed natural wooden looks with classic lush flowers. The colour scheme was deep, rich  colours such as plum, greens with accents of gold and cream.

Below are a mix of professional photos by Hello Sweetheart and some happy snaps I took on the day as well as styling décor features.
