Vendor Spotlight: Nautical Nuptials South Shore - Intimate Weddings & Elopements


We had the pleasure of meeting Melānie, creator & planner/decorator of Nautical Nuptials South Shore, at a wedding expo that she and her team hosted in 2019, we were there as a vendor to promote ourselves as well as photographing the décor, models, and the other vendors' products. We were pretty brand new to the wedding photography biz at the time but she welcomed us with open arms and was happy to include us. We were astonished by the stunning setup that her & her partner, Allan, had created for the expo so when we started to dream up our first ever styled shoot we knew we had to ask her to be involved.

Nautical Nuptials provided all of the décor for our Mahone Bay B&B styled shoot, including custom bouquets, tablescape, a hairpiece for one of our models, and a natural art instalment as a backdrop for the ceremony. Melānie's artistic, natural, and bohemian style fit right into our vision for the shoot and we were so incredibly lucky to have her on our team. Melānie & Allan set up the most magnificent pieces for us for our styled shoot and really helped us go from a simple concept to a fully realized and incredibly beautiful wedding.
