Weddings at Binna Burra
Weddings at Binna Burra Mountain Lodge should be something that everyone gets to attend at least once! With the sweeping views of both coast and country, it is quite an idyllic environment. These images are from an editorial submission that I photographed for Beautiful Weddings. This is what the shoots stylist, Bec Amaran of Beautiful Wedding Gold Coast Hinterland had to say:
” It’s always exciting and lots of fun to organize a photo shoot of our beautiful styling ideas and for the Hinterland region, I chose Binna Burra Mountain Lodge.
The venue has so much history and charm, not to mention spectacular views! I wanted to style the venue in keeping with the rustic features of both the Groom’s Cottage and the Lodge.
The Grooms Cottage has a real fairytale feel to it, so I imagined a natural garden with lots of flowers to compliment the gorgeous old timber features.
Using one long table, covered with greenery and florals running through the centre. I wanted to frame the scene, so we featured lots of greenery on branches with hanging baubles from the ceiling, making a fairytale garden style setting by bringing the outside in. Our rustic chairs were used for seating around the table and matched perfectly with all the natural timber and the fireplace was decorated with jasmine, greenery and flowers. Continuing the garden theme using the staircase, we brightened up space with flowers to add a wild element. We achieved a very whimsical look to highlight this gorgeous area and it was truly breathtaking to see this old charming cottage taken over by nature.
The cliff top dining room at the lodge is a very large room with lots of stone and ceiling high windows, taking in the breathtaking mountain valley views.The main long table is a gorgeous piece of natural timber and features in the centre of the room. A pop of colour was needed which we achieved by using bright flowers in wooden boxes. I handmade table runners of a very soft green and featured beautiful rustic lanterns with flowers. We added jars of florals and lots of tealights, which added romantic light and the ceiling lighting and draping softened the room. I did not want to take anything away from the amazing natural views of this beautiful venue.”
