Wheeling in our racks or wedding gowns, boxes of veils and cases of jewellery into Mona Farm, we were captivated by the serene beauty of this historic property. With paths winding through lush woodlands, ornate gardens and fields of flowers, this hidden gem in regional NSW was the ultimate spot to showcase our very own collection of treasures.

The Tania Maras team spent a day at the picturesque Mona Farm to shoot our upcoming Le Jardin collection of veils and headpieces. The collection stars statement veils scattered with twinkling crystals and cascading lace embellishments along with wildflower-inspired hair combs and tiaras. Designer and Creative Director, Tania Maras, looked to the magic of moonlit gardens when designing this assemblage.

“The collection is inspired by the grandeur of the garden under the infinite stars above. Muted tones of silver and soft gold have been accented with tints of ivory, blush and champagne in a way that feels fresh and utterly enchanting,” says Tania.

The scenic surrounds of Mona Farm made for some breathtaking backdrops for the collection, captured by our photographer Phil, from Heart and Colour. We also had the lovely Sophie from Engaged Creative  on board as our stylist and Kate Lily Hair Dressing and Alex Perrin on hair and makeup respectively. The beautiful Sarah Shaw modelled the accessorises with flair and grace. We also had one very cute helper – Tania’s five-month-old son. Although he wasn’t the most productive member of the team, he did help boost morale and keep us entertained with his smile and giggles!

The Le Jardin collection will be available within the coming weeks. Here, we’re giving you a sneak peek of the soon-to-be-released designs. If you’re interested in one of the pieces, please contact us. And if you’re in need of wedding venue, check out Mona Farm. The property is a three hour drive from Sydney and a one hour drive from Canberra, and offers scenic views, accommodation and a purpose built reception venue.
