Delicate Intricacy.

Delicately crafted appliqué, positioned and sewn to perfectly suit the wearer, we love Christie Nicole Bridal for her delicate intricacy and craftsmanship. A designer of one-of-a-kind wedding gowns, reception dresses and veils, Christie Nicole works intimately with her brides to dream up bespoke creations, perfect for capturing your individual aesthetic.

Think botanical embroidery atop featherweight tulle, and semi-sheer organza paired with soft pleating cascading from the waist... We’re in awe of every element of Christie Nicole’s designs.

Botanical pieces reimagined, Jannie Baltzer creates intricate headpieces and delicate crowns, vines and blooms cast in antique golds and iridescent silvers.

The Modern Muse.

Surpassing the constraints of traditional bridal design, the Mariana Hardwick label speaks to the visionary bride. A collection of hand-sewn gowns decadent with embellishment, luxurious lace motifs and whisper-weight tulle, we love Mariana Hardwick for her contemporary shapes and modern silhouettes.

The artful placing of embroidered lace on barely-there tulle is sophisticated, refined and entirely complementary to the female form. With extensive experience in the industry, Mariana Hardwick draws on classic design and tailoring methods to create modern pieces reflective of the contemporary bride.

Spotlight on: Rosey West.

Jewelry designer Michael Dobkin finds romance in the absolute, in the enduring quality of his craft, pieces defined by their indelibility. A hopeful romantic and an artistic visionary, Michael is the man behind Rosey West, one of our favorite names in fine jewelry. Forever inspired by creatives and innovators, we’ve put the spotlight on Michael to discover more about his art, his life, and all things Rosey West.

Timelessly elegant and perfectly refined, Michael’s first design was a dew drop eternity ring; a classic gold band with diamonds scattered across its surface. The inspiration was drawn from garden slumbers, awaking to find your gold jewelry covered in dew drops, pearls of water that turn into diamonds.

From a childhood spent dreaming of a future as a writer, each of Michael’s creations speaks to a love of literature. His collection is comprised of stories crafted through design, impossibly delicate pieces elevated by poetic touches, each weaving stories of classic romance and eternal love.

Based in New York City, expect pieces locally made, designs that support local manufacturing and sustainable process. Entrenched in meaning, each jewel is a work of art crafted by practiced hands and dedicated souls, an ode to slow fashion and personal touches.

French Opulence.

Recalling French chateaus and countryside estates, Campbell Point House brings Parisian sophistication to Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula. A perfect collision of styling and architecture, we love Campbell Point House for natural palettes and sumptuous styling, tree-lined paths and gardens reminiscent of Versailles.

One of our favourite venues for lavish weddings and starlit ceremonies, Campbell Point House is now also servicing guests as a luxury boutique hotel. Offering intimate escapes in palatial surrounds, guests can stay in one of six double bedrooms, each with an en suite and separate sitting area with views over the moody waters of Lake Connewarre.

Modern Legacy.

Inspired by a childhood spent amongst the Alaskan mountains, the collection from Blair Lauren Brown is an ode to the region’s rugged peaks and wild terrains. An alchemic fusion of raw materials and refined style, expect fluid lines and unexpected shapes, jewels that recall the landscapes of Blair’s birthplace. Now based in New York, Blair has conceived a collection carved from precious stones and alluvial gold. Each piece is handmade and ethically sourced - a mesmeric balance of ancient traditions and contemporary aesthetics.
