feature wedding

So it is sweltering hot in Melbourne but I am very excited to bring you this feature wedding photographed by Nikole Ramsay - another twitter pal - based in London but from Melbourne! This wedding caught my attention because of the nice simple style and the fact that it was held in a garden. The photos are so lovely and I just love the setting - simply beautiful! This wedding is also in the December issue of Cosmo bride if you want to see more! Love the shot of Fiona in her gumboots. The bride and groom - Fiona & Izy held their wedding in Fiona's parents garden - an intimate and clearly stylish wedding. Love it! Exactly the reason I am having a daytime wedding!!

Cheer me up!

I didn't get much sleep last night due to a neighbours boyfriend stopping in at 4:30am for a visit - thanks for that! Anyway Jonas Peterson just twittered about a new shoot of his - and since I love his work I thought I would pass on this sneak peak if anyone else is having a less than perfect day! xx

Black Bridesmaids dresses

So - for my wedding we have chosen black bridesmaids dresses. I didn't think we would go with black but in the end it worked out to be more like a 'neutral' colour and now I can work everything else around it. Plus the girls looked fantastic in the dresses! They are lovely and floaty and I plan to use coloured sashes or flowers with them!

paper lanterns

I think I am finally getting somewhere!! I have decided not to be so structured with my colour palette and just work with a range of colours! I have ordered some paper lanterns on ebay in light pink, bright pink and light peach to go with the white ones I already have! we will see how this all turns out! I have completely gone off the light green idea!

Etsy wedding sashes/flowers

I have been doing some etsy shopping and have come across some great etsy shops with fantastic belts/sashes that incorporate fabric flowers to wear with the bridesmaids dresses! Now I just need to work out which will suit my whole look the best and decide on my colours once and for all!

here they are!

1.Untamed Petals - completely sweet and customisable 2. Sweat Pea & Fawn - Dusty Blooms Corsage - Silk rose and poppy corsage which can be customised in a range of colours 3. Tijusai - two tone flower which can be made in a range of colours and used as a hair pin or brooch 4. MojoSpaStyle - Satin fabric flower with grosgrain ribbon belt

The Sash

Ever since we got engaged I have seen heaps of wedding dresses with lovely sashes. My wedding dress can be worn with a sash but I am not sure yet if I will go down this path. However for the bridesmaids dresses I think the sash is the perfect addition to their dresses - I just have to decide on a colour and whether they should be the same colour or not?

Star of Greece

Next month we are going on a little bit of a family holiday and checking out the Tour Down Under in South Australia and hopefully catching up with Lance Armstrong. We decided to try our luck and managed to get a table at the Star of Greece Restaurant in Port Willunga which The Tour passes by! Very exited as I have been there one day for a work xmas party but it was so rainy so I can't wait to check it out on a beautiful day! Hope everyone had a great weekend :)

It has been a while since I featured another etsy seller because I have been focussing on my wedding planning. I am in the process of designing my wedding invitations which has been a long process for me because I keep changing my mind! I love these invitations from Golden Hill Design because they have so much personality! I will do a post shortly to show you where I am upto with my invitations. I feel like I have so much to do!!!!!! Also need to find a hairdresser for the day!!

My dress

So I have been going on about the bridesmaids dresses but then today I found a picture of Kate Richie (of Home & Away fame!) wearing the same Lisa Ho dress as my wedding dress except hers is purple! Let me know what you think? Love the purple dress though :)
