Highlights This Week

This week we're in love with the one-of-a-kind masterpieces of Sydney based (Florence trained!) fine jeweller Mia Chicco. Imbued with italian heritage and inspired by ancient roman treasures, her pieces are a uniquely beautiful statement of time-worn sentiment.

While it's no secret spilling florals enrapture our senses every time, this arrangement by Melbourne based Fleur is our idea of divine.

The culinary artistry of Sydney based Caterer Studio Neon has us dreaming of their delectable, gallery-worthy creations. While new to our handpicked list of breathtaking Wedding Photographers continually pushing the boundaries of their art form, is Sunshine coast based Janneke Storm (below).

For art lovers and interior design buffs (who isn't!?) we're dreaming of city skylines and the chic, boutique experience of The Olsen. Nestled in the Chapel Street precinct of Melbourne, think an intimate wedding of up to 50 guests, or a cocktail wedding of up to 350 guests where guests can attend and stay amidst the lyrical works of renowned Australian landscape artist Dr John Olsen.

Continuing our theme on artistry this week we're inspired by the ethos of Melbourne based Makeup Artist Tess McFadden who beautifully adheres to her guiding principle of "enhance don't cover".

Tear of the moon, we're swept away by the mystical beauty imbued in the work of Brooklyn based fine jeweller Vena Amoris, which is latin for "vein of love". It was traditionally believed that the fourth finger of the left hand was the only finger with a vein flowing directly from the heart. Romantic much?

And speaking of romance and dreaming, there are few more beautiful places to bask in the magic of love and the natural world, than at the end of the earth itself; Iceland. Thinking back to our recent trip, we couldn't help but lose ourselves in thoughts of it's barren beauty juxtaposed against the raw modern splendor of Iceland Luxury Lodges for the perfect honeymoon escape.

We're loving the relaxed indie bride vibes of Kansas City boutique BRIDE. Offering a personalised bespoke experience or their seriously refreshing "No Appointment Wednesdays" where you can wander in and shop their impressive curation of gowns at your own pace, your own way.

For the bride and groom who already have everything, the gift situation can be awkward and headache-inducing. For the right kind of headache(!) we love the idea (and ease!) of online wine gift registry Wine Please. Offering an impressive catalogue of wines at varying levels of luxury their service is free and easy to create, and a secure and fail-safe way for your guests to buy something they'll know you'll enjoy!

Obsessing over this gilded french lace drop veil in ivory gold by US based Girl With A Serious Dream. Reminiscent of the gilded Rococo architecture found within the Palace of Versailles, it is the ultimate statement of old-world french luxury. 

And finally, we're ever mesmerised by the ethereal moments and nostalgic beauty immortalised via the expert lens of Jose Villa. Proving yet again that he never misses a moment, this Tuscan wedding has our hearts.
