Taking styling cues from sunny Palm Springs in California, this styled shoot is jam-packed with inspiration for the fun-loving bride. Think: palm fronds motifs, flamingos, balloons, cacti, and a colour palette reminiscent of a retro poolside resort.

When our friends from Sydney-based styling duo Ashdown and Bee told us that they had a collaborative shoot to share, we knew we were in for a treat ..and the images do not disappoint!

Photographer Kristie Carrick says, ‘I wanted to have a lot of fun and remind brides and grooms out there that weddings are meant to be a whole lot of fun—you can do things your way and a little different.’

And just wait until you see the desserts! We’re completely crushing on the super cute cactus-inspired popsicle treats, as well as the amazing four-tier masterpiece by Ivy and Stone.
