I was so thrilled when Don & Julia contacted me with this wedding. What a delightful occasion! The fun and emotion of the day have truly been captured by Don Barrington Photography, the husband and wife duo out of Sydney. Their ability to capture ‘in the moment’ photographs is breathtaking, and this wedding is no exception. The evening dancing certainly looked like a lot of fun, make sure to check out Don & Julia’s feature of Rachel & Andrew on their own site for the end of the evening shots. I’m a sucker for chalkboards and DIY at a wedding, so I loved seeing how the couple brought a rustic feel into their day with lots of lace, twine, chalkboards,… Read More →
Since signing up to Trumpet and Horn, Tuesday mornings (or Wednesday with the timezone difference!) are always such a treat now! Each Tuesday, Trumpet and Horn release new vintage rings onto their website for our viewing pleasure. This morning, I found a dream ring! Amongst this morning’s rings, the St Albins totally caught my eye. It’s a beautiful piece of jewelery! “St. Albins is a vintage late Art Deco era engagement ring made from platinum centering a 0.94cts EGL certified Old European Cut diamond graded J color and SI1 clarity. This simple engagement ring design showcases the beautifully cut diamond set high in a six-prong setting. The unique basket design features a hexagonal border underneath the center stone creating a… Read More →
A gorgeous wedding by the talented Amber from Naturalight Photography. I always love sharing weddings from such wonderful photographers, and even more so when the weddings take place on the Mornington Peninsula, where I grew up. Particularly when looking at winery venues on the Peninsula, it’s hard to envisage what your big day will look like there, so it’s great to see a reference. And seriously, what better way to end your big night than with an array of colourful fireworks to celebrate the happy couple?! Love it!
I’ve always been such a fan of little special touches from the bride and groom in the form of DIY. I found this on Pinterest and was photographed by the beautiful Kortni Marie Photography in the USA. Definitely some inspiration for some wedding DIY! What better sentiment of a newly wedded bride and groom than “I choose you, this day and every day”… What’s your favourite DIY element from a wedding you’ve seen or been to?

There’s no denying the Melbourne skyline…it’s beautiful; and from 89 floors up, it’s spectacular! You may not realise – ‘cos I certainly didn’t – that the Eureka tower has a venue space tucked away on Level 89, which is the highest floor of the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest residential building. Sensational views for your wedding reception! I feel privileged to have been included in a small group of talented wedding bloggers/florists/wedding planners and magazine editors, with only about 15 of us in total attending a beautiful luncheon put on by the space today. We were treated to entrees, a tour of the venue, delicious mains and too tasty desserts! I was so humbled to meet some beautiful ladies behind Real Weddings… Read More →
As always, my beautiful guest editor Kate Piasecka shares such a delightful love story! I love a good surprise wedding party, and it’s been captured just brilliantly through Kate’s words and the photography from Photojo! Love is in the air. Love is all you need. Love is all around. Love can set you free. This is a post about love. It’s about 26 year old Julia and 28 year old Tegan. A six year old love that started in Adelaide and continues to grow in Melbourne; cemented at an engagement party-turned-surprise wedding back in March. Attended by friends and family, Jules and Tegs as they are known affectionately, made their love known in a ceremony not unlike any other wedding…. Read More →

There’s something pretty special about the moment you find out your best friend is engaged. With my best girlfriend Meg, I had known for a while that her husband-to-be was planning to propose; so every time I got a call from her, I was anticipating the news! For me, last weekend after a great catch up with an old group of friends, I got a late night text. Given my best guy friend Guy, lives overseas, it wasn’t unusual to get a late night text with the time difference. However, I was uber-excited when the first line of the text said It felt like at that moment, our lives were all connected again. Our group of friends from when we… Read More →
I love seeing beautiful Melbourne weddings, and this one was no exception! I was thrilled when Amber from Naturalight Photography sent this one over for me. Set in St Kilda on a beautiful April day, with the reception at the picturesque Riva on the water. I absolutely love Naomi’s gown from the talented Luci DiBella and the stunning tangerine maxi bridesmaid dresses. What I love most about the series of photographs is Amber’s ability to capture the moments, as well as the change in locations across iconic Melbourne. Enjoy! For more of this beautiful wedding head on over the Naturalight Photography blog. Check out their Facebook page too.
