A few frames that stopped us in a heartbeat, created by wedding by flower favorites Prunella. Captured by Beck Rocchi in The George Ballroom we love the wild romance and rambling beauty of each sculptural arrangement, where blooms in fuchsia and magenta entwine around vines as they climb up arbors and cascade to the floor.
Prunella’s top tip for wedding florals? Curation. "While Pinterest and Instagram are fantastic tools for generating ideas and becoming inspired, don’t try and cram every concept you like into your day. Edit your ideas and let your chosen team make suggestions on how you can create the most individual, cohesive, stylish affair possible."

We find ourselves looking for jewelry that serves as an extension of the self, pieces that capture our energies and speak to our spirits. Deeply personal and imbued with sentiment, we want to adorn ourselves in jewels that inspire and empower, our fingers and wrists brushed in delicate gems and fine metals that serve as windows to our souls.
Celebrating fierce individualism and esoteric design, the latest pieces by Maniamania capture our love for bridal reimagined. Effortlessly wearable and nonchalantly cool, there is a mystical quality to each piece, in shapes and hues that reference celestial beings and spirituality. Worn by the likes of Erin Wasson, Abbey Lee Kershaw and Rihanna, each ring can now be engraved with a bespoke range of alchemic symbols, etches of private whispers immortalised in metal.

For those drawn to botanical inspired spaces, we’ve added Sydney’s Botanic Gardens Restaurant (Part of the Trippas White Group’s stunning list of venues!) to our list of handpicked venues, set on sprawling grounds amidst flowering blooms, with wisteria-draped verandas and harbour views. Hold post ceremony cocktails and canapés on the lawn with the botanical gardens as your canvas for pictures framed by cascading willow trees and fragrant wild flowers. Finish with a dinner on the restaurant terrace – an original 19th Century facade refreshed with chic interiors and a beautiful blank canvas you can style to make your own.

A piece steeped in the symbolism of binding promises and timeless love, our latest jewelry obsession is Cartier’s new LΘVE Bracelet, (a finer version of their first iconic design, in rose or yellow gold). Originally created in 1969, as an interpretation of chastity belts from Medival times, each bracelet locks around the wrist, and can only be removed with a special screwdriver. Whether gifted as an anniversary piece between lovers, or as a piece we're splurging on for ourselves, symbolic of commitments made to the self, there's a timeless allure and romance to Cartier's LOVE bracelets, that draws upon everything we love about this iconic brand.
Shop the collection on the Cartier website.
