A Garden Gala with Hydrangea & Watercolor Details

Nestled in the Peppermint Forest alongside the Wilyabrup Brook lies the breath-taking grounds of Margaret River’s Secret Garden. The garden, which blends classical European style with the beautiful Australian bush, was the perfect setting for this sweet styled shoot and is certainly an idyllic location for an intimate wedding.

Willow Lane Creative did an amazing job with the concept, design, florals, and styling and it's a good thing that Liesl Cheney Photography because she did such a beautiful job capturing all of these darling details.

From the team, "We love summer, not only for the glorious weather and balmy nights, but also for the abundance of fruit and flowers specific to this time of year."
