Vernal Bloom, by Georgia Young Couture

The romance of nature and the ever-changing structure of flora, is what fuelled the imagination to create the latest collection for talented Tribe member, Georgia Young Couture, Vernal Bloom.

 

The elements within each gown pay homage to the memories that are subtly found in everyday gatherings of plant life, where daily passings through the valley overflow with bursts of Golden Acacia, swathed in warm light, or the soft, well-defined structure and scent of a white Winter Magnolia, heavy with morning due fills the air.

 

This stunning Vernal Bloom Collection emulates the soft, subtle balance of nature, the appreciation of the changing seasons and the joy that Spring has arrived, we hope you enjoy this stunning showcase of couture as much as we do.

Ivory Tribe explored the calming coastal seas of the Bellarine Peninsula, sourcing some of the best wedding venues, and we now make our way to the rocking shores of the stunning Surf Coast.

Home to one of the world’s most scenic coastal drives, the Surf Coast is a rugged and natural beauty and it is any wonder that couples are so attracted to celebrating their wedding day in and around such spectacular coast line.

Extending along the world-renowned Great Ocean Road, as well as encompassing cosy inland towns, we were blown away by the gorgeous locations on offer, and found we felt increasingly relaxed as we wound our way along the coast.
