"You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." Mr Darcy - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice.
It's the love story to stand the test of time and the source of inspiration for stylist Ivy & Bleu Events in this classically beautiful shoot. Austen's Pride and Prejudice sparked a love affair with the tall, dark, mysterious gentleman that would continue throughout the ages to the present day. Proud and selfish was Austen's main male protagonist, that is until his heart was melted by the playful wit of Elizabeth Bennet. Sweet spring florals and soft pastel tones were the colour palette for this collaborative shoot between Ivy & Bleu Events & Lee Calleja Thomas Photography.
The colour palette of grey, gold and pink with a speck of shark blue was soft and subtle to complement the luscious green surrounds of Oreilly's Canungra Valley Vineyards. The floating fabrics of the gowns from Made With Love Bridal create an air of romance to this dreamy shoot.
“I was given good principles, but left to follow them in pride and conceit…Such I was, from eight to eight and twenty; and such I might still have been but for you, dearest, loveliest Elizabeth!” Mr Darcy - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice.
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice.
