Intoxicating Romance – styled shoot

We are incurable romantics at Ivory Tribe, so when this styled shoot landed in our inbox, we couldn’t help but gasp with delight.

An empty yet incredible landscape was the influence behind photographer Ali Bailey’s inspirational shoot. It was all about contrasting textures between the stunning One Day Bridal gowns, delicate and understated Lott Studio jewellery and the luxurious faux fur by Unreal Fur. Beautiful wild flowers by Chalkies Blooms helped bring the landscape to life and our brooding bride looked the part with the magic of hair and makeup talent Karen Burton.READ MORE

Winter’s Twilight – styled shoot

Two lovers bathed in golden light- the inspiration for this stunning styled shoot came from the ocean and the vastness of the empty beach in winter’s twilight days.

The beautiful bride’s Wishbone and Ivy gown, contrasts beautifully with the rugged coastline, and the beaded headpiece is reminiscent of the sea’s treasures. The groom’s Mickey Blue suit has a relaxed easy style that fits seamlessly with the ocean landscape.READ MORE


Mariana Hardwick – new luxe range

The new luxe range from Mariana Hardwick needed a show stopping location that would mirror the high-end collection from the well-established designer that has been operating for over 30 years.

Campbell Point House was the perfect choice, the extravagant waterfront French-style chateau made for the ideal backdrop.

The concept was simple: stylish, elegant and grand.

Each location was hand-picked to complement each gown in the collection. From the pool house to the conservatory and beyond, it only got better with each shot.READ MORE
