Beneath The Stars.

Playing to our love of all things celestial and shot in a landscape we left a piece of our own hearts in, on a little trip to Switzerland last year, the latest Naturae Beneath The Stars campaign exquisitely captures the wild alchemy of nature. Beautifully evocative and stirring, it’s a stunning example of the beauty found in moody palettes formed from wild weather, stormy skies and sweeping winds. 

For those pulled by a celestial magic, adorn yourself in glacial inspired stones and celestial headpieces. Pair metallic crowns with featherweight veils, over delicate silks. Carry this lunar inspired mood through to your reception with volcanic accents in ceramics and flatware, stormy grey linens and luminous candlelight.

Wild at Heart.

That beautiful balance of opulence and effortlessness. Intricate embellishment over silhouettes you can move in. We’re loving the new direction we’re seeing from Anna Campbell, weaving the designer’s signature beading over billowing fabrics. An aesthetic that feels a little more undone, and details like laser cut French lace giving a softer, more delicate finish to her designs.

See the full Wild at Heart shoot, photographed by Emily Magers in California's Red Rock Canyon, on the Anna Campbell website.

White Aura.

Simple white slips finished with quartz accents or iridescent gowns offset by delicate bands and translucent jewels... we love Krystal Knight’s new White Aura collection as gifts for your bridesmaids. 

With each delicate stone holding spiritual meaning and healing qualities, choose pieces that evoke a mood that suits your wedding, or possess a quality innately reflective of each bridesmaid. See the full collection here, and learn more about the meaning behind each crystal

Bali's Hidden Gems.

Mesmerised by the ocean’s inky palettes and raw textures, we’re forever drawn to venues that form the perfect blank canvas for languid receptions by the sea. 

While Bali offers a myriad of dreamy beach locations for those planning a destination wedding, a rare hidden gem we’ve fallen completely in love with is The Ungasan. It’s the kind of location that so perfectly epitomizes everything that’s special about Bali. The drama of it’s landscape, it's wild spirited revelry and a feeling of complete seclusion. 

Think stairs that cascade down dramatic cliffs, revealing a private beach enveloped on one side by lush greenery and undulating tides on the other. A tablescape draped in raw linen, organic plate ware, lit by hundreds of candles. A bonfire at dusk, and invisible marquee formed by festoon lights, live music and guests dancing barefoot under the stars…

We're obsessed with The Ungasan's Sundays Beach Club (pictured), but there's another 7 private villa options to choose from. Visit The Ungasan website for more details.

Pin-worthy Gifts.

The best part about a gift registry? The chance to fill your home with those pieces you pin to no end over Pinterest boards but might not otherwise splurge on yourself. Not to mention a way to make sure you don't end up with those ornate silver "wedding frames" you're obligated to dust off, each time aunts and uncles visit!

A wedding registry we're obsessed with, filled with chic decor and homewares is Wedding List Co. Think raw linen in stone grey and dusky pink tints, organic shaped ceramics, Scandinavian furniture by our favorites Urban Couture Design (their Ghost Linen couches we've purchased for our own homes), David Bromley Art, as well as Missoni Home & Coco Republic. And if you still can't find what you have in mind, they offer a wishing well option too. Take a look at the full collection of gifts over at the Wedding List Co website

European Love Stories.

There's an intoxicating beauty and almost palpable energy to Damien Milan's work. Images so powerful in their silence, as voyeurs we're wildly curious about the stories they tell. As the subject, we can only imagine how magnetically they draw a bride and groom right back into that exact ephemeral moment. Aesthetically there's a richness and depth the tone of his images that we rarely see. Light and shade illuminating details in the most cinematic way, revealing with emphasis what his masterful eye chooses to share. Its this level of artistry that sees Damien travelling the world to shoot some of the most exquisite destination weddings.

For those planning to wed in Europe and take advantage of Damien's location, we've just caught wind that he will be in Brussels late June and available to capture destination weddings and elopements throughout Europe from July until the end of September. For all booking enquiries, and to see his complete portfolio visit the Damien Milan website.
