WHERE NATURE MEETS THE SEA : ANCORA STYLED SHOOT

Relatively new to the wedding scene, waterfront venue, Ancora positioned right on the Tweed River, was the backdrop for a group of super talented creatives, led by Tweed Coast Weddings supplier, The Event Stylist and Co.

 

Thanks to the lovely Ngaire from The Event Stylist and Co and Estelle from The French Petal, we got the inside word on the inspiration for the shoot and some insight into this Tweed Heads venue.

 

~ ON THE STYLE ~

We asked Ngaire about the inspiration for this unique style, “we absolutely love the dried flower trend at the moment, the hues of tobacco that emerge after drying florals is incredibly beautiful and we really wanted to go with something nature inspired. The blue tones of both Ancora’s interior and the ocean lapping on their doorstep tied it all together and created the perfect marriage of where nature meets the sea.”

 

~ ON THE FLOWERS ~

For those considering bucking the norm and opting for dried flower styling at their own wedding, Estelle tells us the advantages, “great texture, you can find some amazing colours (using natural dye). They fill your space without the need to look after them and they are awesome for large scale installations, no water needed and very light in weight.”

 

~ ON THE VENUE ~

Some venues come with their own character, style and theming, but what we love about Ancora is that it is a blank canvas while at the same time having built in functionality with the bar, cake ledge and dry bars overlooking the water. Ngaire agrees, “it’s a beautiful blank canvas venue, incredible high ceilings, clean and modern in its architecture and furniture it already has available to us. Ancora allows us to create dramatic styling with striking minimalist flair. The venue is so chic it makes styling a breeze!”
