Late last year we stumbled across a talented photographer by the name of Tilly Clifford and went on to publish some of her gorgeous portraiture work and have been hooked ever since!

Tilly is a huge fan of shooting in Wollongong’s picturesque Botanic Gardens and recently went for a wander with model  Aylah to show us ” the simple beauty of the DIY bride.”

Gathering found green foliage with a few blooms from the local flower markets, the clever Tilly put together a floral headpiece paired with a simple vintage gown and natural hair and makeup to create  a relaxed look that is right up our alley. Tilly explains “I want to inspire the bride to be to opt for simplicity on their big day”

For more great inspiration check out Tilly’s gorgeous website and of course you will always find loads of inspiration in Hello May magazine. Issue one, three, four and five are available for purchase here with FREE postage for all Australian orders.
