Atmospheric Stewarts Bay Wedding in January

Photography by Cassie Sullivan Weddings
Summer weddings in Tasmania don't always mean blue skies and blazing sunshine.  And that's not a bad thing!   Overcast skies can be moody and atmospheric, especially if set against a backdrop of the untouched beauty of the Tasman Peninsula.  The beautiful photos of this January wedding at Stuart Bay Lodge by Cassie Sullivan Weddings illustrate the idea perfectly, showcasing the ruggedness of the Tasman Peninsula landscape as well as the emotion of the day.  

The large red Protea Compacta was the central flower with its soft silvery pink outer bracts and burgundy red central mass.

The bridesmaids wore dark steel blue and the brief was for neutral tones with plenty of foliage.   

For the four bridesmaids, I used all with the same ingredients as the Bride's bouquet, but on a smaller scale.  

Lots of wonderful Risdon Peppermint eucalyptus foliage tied the bouquets todether.  I also used beautiful Leucadendron Silver Tree foliage and some native fern.  

Creamy white hydrangeas were added as well as some gorgeous white flowering gum.  Each bouquet also had dainty green gumnuts, Hebe, Safari Sunset leucos, and some flowering herbs.  

Brunia albiflora, a wonderful summer "flower" was also used.

The photos of this wedding were truly gorgeous!  Having a great photographer makes the memories really stay with you. 

For the men, more green gumnuts with flowering gum, peppermint foliage and gum leaves, and more herbal flowers.  

The groom's boutonniere stood out with the addition of some Leucadendron Silver Tree.

The ceremony was held on the grass area overlooking Stewarts Bay.

The shoreline is a great spot for photos.  

The reception was held at Gabriel's On the Bay.  Each guest table had a vase of flowers and plenty of the native foliages too.   

Lots more foliage plus Protea Pink Ice, Safari Sunset leucos, creamy white hydgrangea, Hebe, flowering gum, and Brunia Albiflora.

The couple provided the table numbers which worked really well in the vases.  Such a great idea!

The bridal table was decorated with a long garland.  A painted sign sat in front of the newly weds surrounded by foliage and flowers as part of the garland.
