Highlights This Week

This week we're dreaming of poolside post-ceremony cockails at Mindaribba House in the Hunter Valley (above), and emotive words and in-jokes, with VIC based Celebrant Nick Brown Events (below).

While exciting new discovery Melissa Harris Fine Jewellery absolutely took our breaths away with this striking diamond, and wedding stylists Events By Kate impressed with this clean palette (below).

And finally, this splatter invitation suite by long time LANE favs Bliss & Bone has us heading into the weekend dreaming of of a New Year's Eve black tie celebration!

The Perfect Gift

The question of where and what to buy when it comes to gifting for and around the wedding, is of perennial consideration. For the bride and groom who have it all, for the bridal party, mother of the bride, the list goes on, and it can often feel impossible to know where to start. Our latest discovery The Luxury Gift Co specialises in creating gifts that communicate meaning, beauty, and gratitude to all those we hold dear, in stylistic aesthetic and synchronicty.

Offering a complete bespoke service with full access to her carefully selected inventory of diamonds and gems, Cushla works with you to create bespoke pieces unlike any other.

HALO by Nevenka

For as long as anyone can remember, Paris has called forth the soul of the lover, and is wistfully blamed for many of the greatest love stories of all time. It is a realm of limitless potential, aesthetic wonder and creativity, and the birthplace of modern romance. Falling in love in Paris isn’t anything new, but no two stories are ever quite the same, and for Melbourne based label Nevenka, it is the setting for the story behind the story…

Drawn to it’s magic and answering to the silent whisper echoing within her, designer Rosemary Masic felt compelled to return to Paris; the place where her parents met and fell in love, as an echo of her own journey. Shot by Jennifer Stenglein, her stunning new campaign (featuring breathtaking bohemian luxe bride and bridesmaid options!) is a celebration of life, love and endless possibility. To view more of the exquisite HALO collection by Nevenka and to shop online, see here.

Salacia

The baptism of stepping into the ocean in your dress after being married is a ceremony all of it's own. For real bride Cassie, captured here in Phuket by one of our favourites Joseph Willis (Gold Coast based), the feeling of the planning, and lead up, and all of the details that seemed so important, are palpably washed away. View more of Joseph's stunning work and enquire about working with him here.

Quiet Focus

Minimalism is chacterised by discipline. A dedication to the essential and uncluttered, and to the power that exists in spaces. It shirks the shallow breathing of every day life and the overload of society, and is meditative in its aesthetic. We’re drawn to it in the tenets of living, to its artful beauty in wedding and event styling, and to the spiritualism it brings to photography.

Few more so, than through the quietly focussed lens of New York natives Forged In The North. Capturing details and landscapes in one of the most unique ways we’ve enjoyed in wedding photography, they have a quiet but distinct style that scaffolds the style of every bride and groom they work with, without ever talking over the top of it. To work with Forged In The North (one of our absolute favourites!) on your wedding, see here.
