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.

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 →
