A season of change and a time to reflect…

A very stylish season to fall in love!


Formerly a church on the Gold Coast, the Infant Saviour was saved from demolition and restored to become an old-world, romantic wedding venue situated on beautiful Tamborine Mountain, in the Scenic Rim.

With a change of name to Hampton Estate Wines, a new ‘Whiskey Bar’ and newly built Hampton inspired cottages, it was our challenge to shine a new light on this well known historic venue.


The whiskey bar has a hint of masculinity featuring warm brick and timber with a polished concrete floor.  I wanted to make good use of the red tones in the brick wall and timber beams overhead by bringing in festoon lighting and soft fluffy pampas highlighted with a simple yet visually stunning table scape.  The colourful pampas filled the room like fire and was softened with delicate dried arrangements and lots of candlelight.  The venue generously provided our team with delicious grazing boards including local cheese with wine from the Hamptons very own cellar door.

Cakes in varying sizes were inspired and designed by Marina Machado to reflect the elements of nature with each petal placed layer upon layer to achieve a feeling of movement.


Miss World Australia 2018, Taylah Cannon looked stunning in a fitted beaded gown with long sleeves featuring a detachable train by Australian designer Karen Willis Holmes. Drop pearl earrings by Amelie George Bridal and a soft wave by Lara Quinn created an effortlessly elegant glam feel for our Bride’s look. The landscape of Hampton Estate Wines stretches out to a beautiful view however sadly we had cloud cover and slight wind, which was great for the detachable train that danced in the wind.

Then there features a car scene. Ford Fairlane is an all Australian classic and was brought in to compliment the hint of masculinity of the whiskey bar softened with delicate lace bridal wear by Homebodii and vibrant florals by Sugared Style adding a feminine allure.
