A beautiful 1950s inspired vintage wedding shoot held at Coriole Winery

I’m incredibly excited to share with you part two of the gorgeous Vintage Styled Wedding Shoot that we did at Coriole Vineyard at McLaren Vale last Tuesday. To see part one of our shoot, you can click here.

The girls put together two seperate wedding themes, the first being soft floral pinks, apricot and greys and the second wedding theme was earthy, rustic with a little twist of vintage.

The rustic vintage theme came complete with garden ceremony set up under the Coriole Mulberry tree and a heshen aisle runner. Succulents, Orchids and Hellebore’s have been used in jars atop wooden logs to line and decorate the aisle and also decorate the wooden signing table.

Rustic wooden glass panel doors have been used for the seating chart at the entrance to the reception area.

The reception area was set up under the vine covered alfresco area at Coriole. The tables were adorned with heshen runners and Chrissy from Blooming Bridalcreated  a beautiful mixture of succulants, lavender, orchids and a hint of moss atop wooden pedestals creating the eye catching table centrepieces. Twine bundling the cutlery together at each place setting.

The wooden themed place cards created by The Paper Cafe had their own wooden plate with moss and sat underneath gorgeous glass cloches all from Rapture Events and Designs.

A teak wishing well and old fashioned type writer for guests to write well wishes and memories from the day.

The most delicious part of the day would have to have been the cookie buffet.  Mountains of freshly baked cookies displayed on wooden platters with Oreo Wedding cake and small bottles of Milk…. heavenly!

No wedding shoot would be complete without a gorgeous bride and groom or wedding bouquet!

    This whole shoot looks amazing…the photos, styling…all is so beautiful. I’m trying to do something similar for my wedding in February and was wondering if the chairs for the ceremony were hired from someone? I cant find that style anywhere. If you can help me with any details feel free to email me- hailsblack_uk@hotmail.com =( Thanks!

    Oh Hayley, your wedding has obviously passed, but I had been searching high and low for these chairs too – I even contacted Coriole (the winery) to see if they’d loan them to us as we’re getting married 5 minutes away, but no luck. We’ve settled on bentwoods of a similar colour – hopefully you found something equally satisfying!
