Eco-friendly Micro Wedding

Updated: Aug 17, 2022

Local Albany photographer Holly Medway organised a Spring Micro Wedding Shoot at Phillips Brook Estate in November 2020. A lovely mix of vintage urns, repurposed vessels and home made recycled candelabras from my collection filled the delightfully rustic space which together with our home grown flowers was beautiful. Potted pansies and violas raised from seeds and planted in washed terracotta pots complemented the floral design. Soft linen napkins in a range of complementary shades worked perfectly with the delicate and muted tones of the flowers. Tables were set with ceramics made in Fremantle by Simone of Winterwares and crystal glassware from a local supplier. This occasion doubled as a Vow Renewal for local couple Ruth and Jackson. Ruth is a talented local model and make up artist. The Vow Renewal was led by Sarah Thompson, a delightful local celebrant. Personally, sheds are always a favourite to decorate. Their humble and practical origins provide the perfect canvas for our flowers. A mix of tin and wood creating a palette of time worm textures.

Covid meant that I had an abundance of blooms that were destined for weddings...that unfortunately had been cancelled due to guests being unable to travel to WA. It was a great opportunity to use them creatively on this event. A palette of dusty muted tones suited Holly's photographic style perfectly.

Phillips Brook is a rustic venue well suited to micro weddings and other intimate occasions with delicious food prepared by Narda the owner of Phillips Brook Estate who has the Wood Fired Catering Company

Holly has creatively captured a collaboration of Albany Wedding Vendors.

The Australian native finger limes matched the colour theme for the day perfectly. Phillips Brook Estate is in the process of establishing a grove of them at their property on the outskirts of Albany.

Food prepared by Narda was seasonal and locally sourced.
