I’m very lucky to have gone to school with some seriously talented women. Recently I’ve been obsessing over the absolutely beautiful bridal collections being created by my former classmate Sandra Banken who launched her brand, Elvi Design, with her mother Birgitta in 2011. I’ve been wanting to write about Elvi Design for so long, I’ve never seen anything like the pieces Sandra and Birgitta have been producing and I’m so excited to share them with you! The Perth-based label has become increasingly well known for their vintage-inspired couture gowns – each individually designed and tailored to ensure every bride looks mind blowing on her wedding day. Bespoke weddings (which I am LOVING) have become increasingly popular over the past couple… Read More →
My favourite guest blogger is back in town, and she’s sharing one of the most divine engagement shoots you’ll see this year! Amazingness from Ben Yew! Once upon a time my friend Kale met a tiny blonde bombshell who made up for her (lack of) hight with an enormous personality and a huge heart. Her name was Stephanie and he was smitten. (I was also smitten, the girl is hilarious.) Both originally from Perth, the two now live in Geraldton – a rural hub on WA’s central coast. Kale, 27, met his primary school teaching bride-to-be six years ago through mutual friends. Last year he popped the question on bended knee at a pre-arranged photo shoot in Perth with the couple’s much-loved… Read More →
When I saw this image from Lauren Larsen, I was instantly drawn to the couple and their moment. The placement and use of a tram scroll to capture their relationship journey was beautiful and visually engaging, plus the perfect memorabilia to include in their home! I love the use of this for their wedding day and wedding photographs, have any of you done this for your own wedding?
I recently came across this beautiful wedding from Corey Sleap in Melbourne, and was instantly obsessed and wanted to see more! The photographs certainly bring the stunning wedding to life, and with a dancing-down-the-aisle wedding party, you can be sure that was hard to capture each moment! What truly comes through in these photos, are the love these two have for one another. The adoring gazes and happiness shine through in these images, with photographer Corey Sleap admitting that Kath and Bala’s wedding was a bit of a tear jerker, “one of those weddings where I find myself using the camera as a tear hiding mask”. For the full photographs of this stunning wedding, head over to Corey’s site. Location… Read More →
I love a guest post at Something Borrowed, so was super excited that ASOS Australia wanted to give their tips on wedding accessories for this season! With wedding season fast approaching, at ASOS we have decided to put together a guide that points brides in a good direction when it comes to wedding accessories. This is considered mission impossible for many brides, whether to go simple and safe, or make a statement and take a risk. The most important rule to abide by is choose accessories that work harmoniously with the dress. Think elegant and chic; less is more applies for the best wedding look no matter what the circumstances. Earrings and Necklace Your earrings and necklace very much play… Read More →
Pinterest have finally started to rollout their new layout to its’ users! The updated design features larger photos and a smaller activity feed on the homepage. It’s also removed the “likes” and “repins” from the overview pin view, and only show these on the individually viewed images. Pinterest have also improved their discovery of content, so now when you look at a pinned image or video, pins from the same board run down the right-hand side so that you don’t have to leave the page you’re on. You can also explore pins from the same source and see what “people who pinned this also pinned.” I particularly love this feature! If you’re not following me, hop on over to Pinterest… Read More →
I found this via Pinterest last night, and have desperately been trying to track down the original to find the photographer! Unfortunately, no luck! But, this stunning dress by Jason Wu is just exquisite! I would absolutely be happy to walk down the aisle in this ray of sunshine! Has anyone worn a non-traditional colour gown to their wedding? I would love to hear from you and see some photos! Email: email@example.com
Almost three years ago I introduced my brother Joe to my excellent friend Catherine. I knew instantly that from that first meeting that it was on. As much as they both played it down, their blossoming relationship became the worst kept secret of all time. Catherine: ‘Kate I have something to tell you.” Me: “What’s wrong? Are you sick?” Catherine: “I’ve been seeing your brother,” *I feign horror while trying not to laugh* Catherine: “Are you upset?” Me: “Hahahahahahahahahaha.” (Or something along those lines) Nearly a year after that first encounter, Joe – who is a submariner in the Royal Australian Navy – was shipped to Perth. The two decided to maintain a long distance relationship and figure it out… Read More →
Can’t wait to share with you a wrap up from one of the most fun weddings I’ve attended! It was such a beautiful ceremony and celebration that was the epitome of the couple. Beautiful people and beautiful wedding, doesn’t get much better than that! Stay tuned for photographs and wedding feature next week on the blog. Thankyou to Sally Croft for the last two images! Absolutely AMAZING video sneak peek also from Purple Ribbon Weddings Rezwan and Melissa’s Wedding from PURPLEMONKY pictures on Vimeo.
When Mel contacted me about her engagement shoot with Adiz Photography I had no idea how incredible the images were going to be. I think breathtaking is a pretty good summation of how I felt when I saw this shoot! Here’s a selection of their beautiful photos! I’m lucky enough to be attending her and Rezwan’s wedding today, so stay tuned for more photos to come from this beautiful couple!
