Embrace your wild side and channel your inner green goddess beneath towering trees and cascading waterfalls. Here, deep in the untamed, sub-tropical rainforest, your love can run free.
Inspired by the idea of an elopement in paradise, this breathtaking shoot has us falling for the forest. Twin Falls in Springbrook National Park is a favourite location of bridal-wear designer Helena Karkovic, who brought together a team of creatives to showcase its romantic potential. Dream on…

All the dresses
Bringing glamour to the greenscape, Helena made the forest floor her catwalk with three incredible gowns. ‘Spring’ is a sultry vision in laser-cut chiffon and English tulle, while the hand-stitched French beaded lace and delicate cowl back of ‘Angelique’ reference old-school style. Free-spirited and flirty ‘Liana’ is just made for skipping through the trees – it’s perfect for a boho wedding, or a second (or third!) dress option.
In an environment as richly textured as this, a soft and detailed mix of romantic blooms and greenery shines without competing against the dramatic backdrop. The loosely structured bouquet has a ‘just picked’ vibe.
If you’re celebrating in an incredible natural setting, let your heart lead the way. After a day of magical light and swoon-worthy captures, photographer Luke suggested one final adventure for our fantasy couple: an impromptu dip at Twin Falls. The result? Pure magic. The lesson? She who dares wins.
