This week we're inspired by minimalism in all it's forms. In giving gifts that convey meaning (not excess) with the Vintage Luggage Co (above) and in silk slips for brides by A La Robe, that speak to the undone beauty of women.
We're inspired by the pared back beauty and nostalgic sweetness of this meringue creation by cake designer Gillian Bell (above), and by the fluid hand of calligrapher and stationer The Blackline by Lauren, who we recently worked with on our Ocean Allure tablescape at The Avalon on the Beach (below).
And finally, as we head toward the close of 2016 and into the hope, beauty, and limitless of the new year, we pause to dream with UK boutique Ghost Orchid Bride, and this stunning Odylyne The Ceremony gown. A very Merry Christmas to you and yours x

Panoramic views of turquoise tides and sequinned seas, a world renowned dining destination, intimate garden setting, and luxurious accommodation, typify the Jonah's wedding experience. Perched high on the cliffs of Sydney’s secluded Whale Beach, it’s little wonder Jonah’s is the go-to venue for couples seeking an event space that covers off every possible requirement. Having recently hosted our own LANE styled event at Jonah’s with the who’s who of Australian online influencers (see the event here), we can recommend first hand the seamless event experience we enjoyed. To enquire about working with Jonah’s on your wedding see here.

Precious prisms of infinitely refracting light epitomise the spectacular jewels of Melissa Harris. A lifetime passion and 25 years in business, from humble beginnings in Hollywood selling her designs right off her body, to accumulating a faithful celebrity clietele (Charlize Theron, Zoe Kravitz, Elton John, and Jodie Foster to name a few!) to back to her roots in Australia and her flagship boutique in Double Bay, she is an artisan with a wealth of inspiration, story and beauty.

Composed of singular, minimal moments, you get the sense from the photography of Margaret River based Paris Hawken, that every image is the first line of a story that reaches fruition in the heart. Inceptions of memories and captured beauty, her love for her art form is palpable, and if it takes one to know one, immortalising love in a frame is the epitome of what he she does best.

A critically overlooked factor on the wedding day is having a reference point to direct traffic, and to calmly keep pace. No matter how organised you are, you simply can’t be everywhere at once to communicate your wishes to the various service providers on the day, and unless you clearly direct so in advance to someone you trust, things can go awry.
As well as housing a curation of one-of-a-kind vintage and pre-loved wedding dresses (pictured above!) in their stunning Fort Lauderdale studio, WildeFlower Boutique also offer ‘Day of Wedding Management’ prearranged in a series of one on one appointments to ensure everything goes just right. To enquire about working with WildeFlower Boutique on your wedding, and to book your appointment to try on their (seriously!) beautiful edit of dresses, see here.

Once upon a time as a bride you had to walk into a boutique to be sure of what you were getting. The fit, the fabric, the quality, the finish, the perfection factor. Not so anymore.

We seek out the best the earth has to offer, but we don’t want it to cost the earth.
