Real Wedding: Renee & Stuart

Renee and Stuart: Pier 10 Feature

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!

Same Love: Tegan + Julia

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 →

Catherine & Joe: Country Romance

Catherine and Joe country wedding carly ravenhall

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 →

Sneak Peek: Nidhi & Eric

Wow, what a wedding! What an experience! I definitely need some time to collate the full post about Nidhi and Eric’s wedding – and serious consultation with the bride and groom to make sure I get everything right! The Rajasthan wedding, held at Neemrama Fort Palace was certainly one to remember. Not only were the weekend festivities memorable and fun, with the bride and groom donning two extravagant outfits to gawk at, but the merging of both Nidhi and Eric’s worlds was seamless. Friends and family all got along famously, with new friendships formed over the days at the Fort. A few highlights… Spending time with Nidhi! Getting to spend some valuable time with Nids before, during and after the… Read More →

Green Wedding Shoes – The Princess Bride feature shoot

As my favourite movie of all time, seeing this feature on Green Wedding Shoes was such a treat. Photographed by the talented Ashley Bee and styled by Erin B Events, they have created the ultimate re-enactment of Buttercup and Wesley, down to the detail of the cake with the iconic words “As You Wish”. That phrase forever has a special place in my heart! The styling of Buttercup is truly gorgeous, the dress and headpiece are something I can picture Buttercup choosing to wear herself! I haven’t ever really considered taking styling cues from favourite movies, but it’s a nice idea, and I particularly like the quotes that have been immortalised in this setting. Beautiful shoot, make sure you take… Read More →
