This stunning elopement shoot took place in Melbourne and was shot and organised by German photographer Maria Luise Bauer.
“We used a gown from Georgia Young“, she said. “I totally love her work and always wanted to shoot with her dresses so I sent her an email a few days before flying to Melbourne, asking if we could meet up and if I maybe could shoot a little inspiration with one of her gowns. And she said yes!”
“This shoot was very spontaneous. I wanted to do something hipster-ish, and to be inspired by an elopement in the city. I wanted it to see free and non-traditional. I put together the flowers myself and kept them basic. I wanted to show that if you’re having a low budget wedding you can just do things yourself.”
Keri and Sean wanted a wedding theme that included dinosaurs, gnomes, Harry Potter and zombies! They hoped the day would be full of the things they like, to reflect themselves, and to be super relaxed and a whole lot of fun!
However, they had a slightly rocky start to the day! “I was late to the ceremony because the wheel fell off the bridal car, rolled across the road and landed at the side of the river!” laughed Keri. “Thankfully there were no causalities! We then jumped into the VW Campervan and made our way to the venue – 40 minutes late!”
Vita and Michailas described their wedding theme as ‘a violet haze, bohemian, woodland fairytale’. They wanted their wedding to be very intimate and small, but magical. They focused on having lots of colours and flowers with a bit of glitz and copper details. Overall they wanted their wedding to be inspired by themselves and things they both love.
The couple’s favourite part of the day was their ceremony. “It was truly magical,” said Vita, “I think our wedding ceremony was the most emotional moment of my entire life! I don’t think there was ever a time when I felt so many emotions at once. It was wonderful, overwhelming and simply amazing. We had great musicians playing the music in the middle of the woods, I walked down the aisle to Once Upon a Dream from the Sleeping Beauty and it truly felt like a woodland fairy tale. The smell of the rose petal confetti was magical, my grandma had picked it herself from wild roses, and it felt magical to be showered in it!”
Paige and Rick described their wedding theme as ‘a wedding in Wonderland’ and they were inspired by a version of Lewis Carol’s Alice in Wonderland illustrated by Salvador Dali. They used the book’s illustrations as inspiration for their different centrepieces, various decor and overall funky feel. They wanted the visuals to inspire curiosity much like Dali himself and his artwork, and hoped their wedding would transport their guests down the rabbit hole to Wonderland…
“As our guests entered the museum for our ceremony they were greeted with pink flower flamingos and the sign ‘Holy Shitballs Today is Going to be Awesome!’” began Paige. “Our ceremony took place on a helix shaped staircase in the middle of the Salvador Dali Museum with our family and friends on the floor above us looking down so everyone had a great view. We were married by the Mad Hatter with a light hearted, short and sweet ceremony. It was filled with messages of love but one of our most favourite parts was the ‘We Do’s’.”
