An Australian Bridal Event in London.

There is a unique aesthetic to Australian design, an enigmatic flair linked to shape and texture. A culmination of delicate simplicity and relaxed styling that reflects the laid-back nonchalance that often defines the nation. Think eveningwear infused with street style, where everything is a little undone and effortlessly chic. Ubiquitously desired but notoriously unattainable (until now!), UK brides have a chance to shop some of Australia’s leading names in bridal at the Aussie Bridal Salon, presented by Town Hall Hotel and Knot and Pop. Featuring LANE favourites Nevenka and Bo & Luca, think sheer gauzy fabric and exaggerated ruffles, with alluring cut outs and sweeping hemlines that fall weightlessly to the floor. 

Held in London’s Town Hall Hotel from the 2nd – 5th of March, the event is appointment only, with each ticket including a two hour time-slot for the bride and three guests, champagne on arrival, a goodie bag, designer appointments with the brands and a consultation couch for wedding planning and styling advice.

The Runway Edit.

One step into the Le Louvre boutique in Melbourne and you’ve entered a sartorial mecca that feels you’ve stumbled across the wardrobe of a coveted stylist. A shrine to fashion, art and design and the magic made when the three collide, Le Louvre offers exclusive access to gowns sourced directly from the runways. Think an edit of Chloe, Valentino, Lanvin and Marchesa Ready To Wear, with access to a stylist in a one on one appointment to help coordinate your look. Head over to the Le Louvre website to explore the collection…

A Hidden Oasis.

Forever romanced by sea breezes and hidden gardens, we’ve fallen for the laid-back luxury of new find Bells at Killcare. The epitome of Hamptons elegance with Ralph Lauren furnishings and manicured lawns, we’re dreaming of chic garden parties amongst rolling hills, where guests leisurely play croquet before dancing under a sky lit with stars. A hidden oasis just ninety minutes from Sydney, Bells is nestled amongst some of Australia’s best beaches, offering destination wedding vibes without leaving the city. 

To find out more information, or to book, contact Bells at Killcare on their website.

Ornate Decadence for Wild Romantics.

That billowing sleeved gown dusted in iridescent beading that we might have pinned a thousand times... One Day Bridal's Kyha Simpson creates the kind of boldy alluring pieces you usually find scattered between collections, in every single piece that sits within her collection. 

In her Melbourne studio recently we got to experience these mesmerising peices up close. Sumptuous and decadent, each gown is inspired by movement and fluidity, hugging the body before spilling onto the floor; a luxurious pool of intricate laces and liquid silks. It's a wildly romantic collection that shifts between ornate embroidery, chic silks that fall from shoulders and ethereally sheer, billowing fabrics with daringly low backs and dramatically long hemlines. 

Handmade in South Melbourne, each dress is a celebration of individual style and personal stories, a collaboration between seamstress, designer and bride.

Cinematic Frames.

Boldly emotive, cinematically captured frames that paint with light and shade, we love the work of Ritual Union. A Melbourne based duo comprised of photographer and cinematographer, they bring a seamless consistency to weddings. Their work is defined by clarity and precision, by the capturing of those fleeting moments in between; the gentle tremble of nervous hands and the undulating folds of a dress, the meeting of eyes communicating words left unsaid. 

See their full portfolio on the Ritual Union website.

Melbourne's Artful Caterers.

 As stylists, event aesthetics extend down to the details of your menu. We’re always looking for caterers who completely understand the art of cohesive catering (and get excited by and passionately involved with your creative brief). One of our favorites for artful catering is Melbourne based Fred & Ginger, who effortlessly interpret visual cues of a venue and decor mood boards to design exquisite bespoke dishes using colour, texture and perfumed ingredients to add the finishing touches to an event.

With a focus on sustainability, their food is a celebration of seasonal produce, fresh palettes and innovative flavours. To see the full summer menu, or to get in touch, see the Fred & Ginger website
