Inspired by the ocean blues and rocky elements of this coastal location near Mooloolaba, this styled shoot, dreamed up by Driftwood Blue Floral and Match Made Photography perfectly captures the beauty of an intimate coastal Wedding using minimal styling elements with a playful focus on using different hues of blues.
With an interest in intimate Weddings and Elopements on the rise, we wanted to create a styled shoot that would help inspire other couples on a creative way you can style an elopement day. Utilising the simplicity and romance of a coastal location, we used a blue colour palette for the majority of the styling, taking inspiration from the brides’ gown to the coastal styling choice.
Floral and creative stylist, Sharon from Driftwood Blue Floral selected the most delicate of colours and textural blooms for the bride’s coastal florals and paired this with metallics and glassware for both the ceremony and tablescape, creating a minimalistic yet timeless set up for this coastal location. With elements of soft blue tulle and white lace, whimsical soft florals and greenery, simple ceremony styling and a luxurious tablescape grazing platter, along with a beautifully handcrafted Wedding cake and minimal decor, Sharon and the vendors involved were able to create a natural yet highly romantic setting for this coastal Wedding shoot.
The bride wore a two-piece, with a soft lace top and satin underlay, long length veil and luxury jewellery, paired with a beautifully layered blue tulle skirt, adding inspiration in its elegance and blue colour notes. The Groom was dressed in a linen jacket, white shirt and navy pants, with both tie and open shirt portraits, showcasing the opportunity to create a less formal approach.
All of this paired with the coastal breezes and moody skies, crashing waves and soft sands underfoot, created the most delightful opportunities to capture portraits only made available by these beautiful coastal locations and luxurious minimalistic Wedding styling design.

Magical Memories Made Here
We chose Driftwood Blue floral to do our bridal bouquets, ceremony and reception styling and we wouldn’t change a thing! We were overseas while planning and her communication and professionalism shone through from our first meeting. Despite some supply challenges, she was able to deliver the most amazing bouquets and arrangements and everything looked incredible on the day!

This beautiful business was amazing! From start to finish they were professional, met my budget, were quick to act when i had last minute changes and had to move my wedding forward a month because of covid. The flowers will last me a life time, so will the impression they made on myself and my husband. Everyone loved our flowers and continue to do so still as we have them as a feature in our home. Every Bride and Groom should choose Driftwood Blue Floral Events as their choice.

Simply put … Sharon is AMAZING and highly recommended!!! Sharon helped with our floral arrangements and event styling for our wedding on 18th October 2020. Although it was an intimate event of close family, she went over and above to make our day special. Sharon was great at communicating, extremely easy to work with and even worked with our cake vendor on the floral topper for the cake. Everything came together beautifully on the day and we have had so many people comment on Sharon’s arrangement. It was STUNNING!
