The Peacock Estate Styled Shoot

A styled shoot we designed and created at The Peacock Estate on the Mornington Peninsula in Tyabb. This fabulous venue includes the sweetest little refurbished church built in 1914, a large rustic shed and a courtyard with an in-built Bar for sunset drinks and canapes.

We loved every minute of styling this beautiful venue (despite the almost 40 degree heat on the day of our shoot!). We kept the styling pared back inside the old Church and let the beautiful white-washed space with it’s soaring ceilings and stained glass windows speak for itself. We introduced some carpet runners stretching down the aisle, lanterns and flowers on the aisle ends and the arch above the Ceremony area was adorned with seasonal hydrangeas. At the opposite end of the Church, in an alcove beneath the beautiful stained glass windows, we placed a vintage velvet chaise lounge and mirror signage.

The rustic timber and metal Shed was styled for an intimate sit-down reception, with a soft palette of grey and powder blue, some boho-touches and pretty pastel coloured florals. We played with two very different seating styles around the table – timber benches with mismatched cushions, then pastel coloured vintage timber chairs. The table featured luxurious linens from Simmons Linen Hire, our vintage brass candle-holders and seasonal flowers. The soaring space was styled with our custom-made macramé chandeliers and garlands. A Bridal Lounge was set-up in one corner, with a sweet Letterbox Wishing Well in the opposite corner, surrounded by haystacks, vintage chests and boxes, lanterns and flowers.

The brick paved courtyard outside the Shed was styled for sunset drinks and canapes. Boho-style bar stools were scattered around the vintage timber spool tables, with delicate lace bunting and festoon lights overhead. Pretty pastel coloured flowers and twinkling tea-lights in glass jars were placed on the tables.
