Celestial Earth

A poetic gallery of magical moments set inside the beguiling earthen surrounds of a hidden Byron Bay estate

Photography by Megan Kelly

A collaboration inspired by the magic of the skies and the grounding of the earth. A juxtaposition of metallic elements and crumbling fibres is what speaks beauty to the eyes.

Local stylist Heidi from The Romance together with photographer Megan Kelly worked alongside a host of talented creatives, producing a poetic gallery of magical earthen moments inside the beguiling surrounds of Byron Bay estate, Villa Rustica.

Set within the ageing facades of Byron Bay’s Villa Rustica, textural walls in rust tones provide the perfect backdrop for an event infused with magic. Inside, a layered tablescape drips with gilded accents and earthen elements. Textural wildflowers in whitewashed palettes and rambling assymmetrical shapes are contrasted with minimalistic paper goods by Paper Paper Co.

Ethereal, romantic silhouettes by bridal designer Bowie Rae are finished with bouquets of wild blooms in muted shades and celestial adornment.
