Two brides - Alternative same sex wedding shoot on Gay Wedding Blog


Today we have a lovely same sex wedding styled shoot with two gorgeous brides that was shared with us by the planner behind it – Nonie Leonard.

The shoot was inspired by a couple that fell in love with the venue whilst on a wine tasting tour. As they fell in love with the venue which features a barn, coach house and wine shop the story of the couple is told through their images on their big day. 

The shoot celebrates a female same sex multi cultural wedding at the beautiful Stanlake Park Wine Estate. The venue has not had a same sex wedding and are vert keen to host one. Celebrating wine from the venue, the theme Drunk in Love was chosen for the shoot and features in the shoot.

For decor, we chose an understated luxury feel with colours grey, gold and hues of purple. The colours are romantic and yet playful to showcase and work well with each other.  This is reflected in the table decor, floral arrangements mixed with candles. To mix a modern feel to the rustic venue we added an arch for the ceremony. The floral arch is on trend for 2020 weddings and is perfect for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies.  

The makeup look by the amazing makeup artist Jo Elizabeth for the couple was sophisticated and romantic to complimented the beautiful wedding gowns from Debbie Rees Bridal.

The inspiration for the cake by Couture Sugar Designs, was modern, understated, clean and elegant. The detailed feature on the cake add the understated luxury feel and look. 

The photography by Berni Palumbo is perfect for the shoot with the romantic setting and the weather was on our side for the indoor shoot. 

For any same sex couples looking for a little different wedding venue, this place is perfect as it offers a coach house for the ceremony, barn for the reception and the vineyards for some amazing images in the wedding season.
