Southern Highlands Wedding Photographers showcasing the inspirational romantic & pastel french charm wedding at Terrara House NSW.
I have always been inspired by the romance of a wedding at a French chateaux. As a result of the pandemic, couples are unable to have their dream wedding or elopement in some European countries. Which lead me to look for a beautiful venue in Australia that could inspire that French charm for couples to married during the pandemic. I found a few venues that would fit the romantic French charm idea. Terrara House in Nowra perfectly matched the vision perfectly. I am so excited to share this beautiful shoot that was featured on Magnolia Rouge
The Terrara House property was first owned in 1836 French tea trader and merchants and it has a lot of history to offer. Due to its French history, the house seems to reflect the perfect French Provence charm we dreamt of for our shoot. It is well located, and I knew it would be an inspiration to a lot of couples that are looking to create a European inspired wedding. Nestled ‘where the land meets the sea’. Terrara House is situated on the south bank of the Shoalhaven River. The Estate boasts seventeen acres and a variety of different ceremony and receptions spots, a breathtaking tree-lined driveway as well as a beautiful wellness spa.
I absolutely adored the florals and décor inspired by soft French blue and romantic pink tones. The variety of smaller floral arrangements are perfect for all weddings as it does not block the view and allows for good visibility across the table to ensure guests will be able to have their meaningful conversations and enjoy the wedding. The florist did an amazing job to show how to use flowers that are affordable by using blooms that is in season and readily available. Along with the picturesque venue and the sumptuous blooms from Palette de Flores in layers of pretty pastel blues, the shoot turned out amazing and better than what we could have imagined.
My favourite part of this Southern Highlands wedding day would be when Delaney & Harrison, the gorgeous couple danced in the hedge garden maze. It felt like a moment that was all about them. This beautiful garden labyrinth may have been designed to make you feel like you are in a secret garden somewhere in the French countryside.
