Not long ago I made a little daytrip out to Kyneton to shoot two beautiful houses – one belonging to photographer Tara Pearce, and the other to florist Vanessa Partridge.  Both Tara and Vanessa were amazing women to meet, incredible creatives who had each made the ‘tree-change’ and set up their respective businesses in Kyneton.  With business partner Caris Haughan, Vanessa runs Prunella – the sweetest and most stylish florist in Piper st, the main street of Kyneton.  Tara is one half of Erin + Tara, a fantastic little wedding photography business Tara runs with her pal and fellow photographer Erin Neale.

So you can imagine my secret thrill when I learnt that Prunella and Erin + Tara had joined forces! (I actually didn’t even know they knew each other… I guess no one is a stranger in a small town!?).  These clever creatives have paired up to offer a full and fabulous wedding and event styling service for anyone planning a wedding or party in the Macedon Ranges area.

Together, Prunella and Erin + Tara offer complete theming, flowers, photography, stationery, styling and hire of selected props and furniture.  Prunella creates wild floral masterpieces, beautiful bouquets and unique buttonholes.  Erin + Tara are the superstar photographic team who capture so many special weddings in the Macedon Ranges area.   There is quite honestly so much incredible creative talent and energy between these four clever ladies – talk about dream team!

To learn a little more about this inspired creative collab, do check out this little post on Erin + Tara’s blog!  Prunella’s website is also worth a little visit – Vanessa and Caris make amazing floral creations for all kinds of events, and they also run incredibly popular flower arrangment workshops!

    More Flora please! What a lovely post!

  • How utterly beautiful. There must be something in the waters in Kyneton – an abundance of inspiration in the surrounds perhaps? I’ve been meaning to drive up there for a while now- must get to it.:)

    what makes this so wonderful is the luscious amounts of green and flowers everywhere. I love it!

    Both their homes are enchanting, and their aesthetic is at once nostalgic and edgy-contemporary. What a lovely & thrilling collaboration. I reckon country towns are where these things can take off more easily. (Here in Healesville we have the lovely girls at Clarence working their magic with flowers.)

    Just received this in my inbox- You are popping up in oh so many places…………… YOU GO GIRLS ! Congratulations.

    Great to see these local creatives are getting profiled, but suggesting that Piper Street is “the main street in Kyneton” is a bit far fetched. It’s the main TOURIST street, not the main SHOPPING street.Why not take a look up High and Mollison Streets? There many creative and enchanting gems to be explored in the whole of Kyneton, not just one street…..

    I absolutly adore these ladies, I used this combination of talent last year for my wedding, it was unique and stylish! It’s really hard to find something out of the ordinary and unlike everyone else. After searching and only to find the same old, Piper st was a breath of fresh air!!! Go girls!!
