If you’re seeking something a little more simple for your big day, look no further than our Issue 14 fashion editorial, ‘Laidback Bride’. Featuring bridal gowns for barefoot babes and intimate backyard feels, these fab frocks will inspire you to let your hair down, relax and let the good times roll.

Captured by the ever so talented Cassandra Ladru (also featured here and here), this editorial brings us to the lovely Harvest Cafe – an awesome grub hub located in the historic town of Newrybar in the Byron Hinterland that’s all about curating menus using fresh, local and organic produce. You can learn more about Harvest Cafe in our Issue 14 vendor profile. Pick up an issue here!

Focusing on free-spirited, fun loving vibes, this stripped back shoot featured gowns by some of our all time fave designers including Rue De Seine, Spell & The Gypsy Collective, Grace Loves Lace, Stevie MayStella McCartney, Nevenka, Lost in Paris and Alice McCall, as well as accessories from Forever Soles, Lack of Color, Hope and May and Fallen Broken Street.

There’s no doubt that the amazing India Rose of IMG Models looks stunning yet oh so carefree thanks to gorgeous locks and flawless makeup by hair and makeup artist Luciana Rose – a Byron based beauty expert who’s damn good at what she does.

If you plan on getting hitched in beautiful Byron (and being a #laidbackbride), be sure to get in touch with Luciana Rose, check out the amazing designers featured below and head to the HM directory to learn more about all of our favourite vendors – as well as some super cool behind the scenes footage, shot by cinematographer Joel Tronoff in our video below!
