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. To enquire about working with Paris Hawken Photography on your wedding, see here.

Bespoke Vision

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

CHOSEN by One Day Bridal

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. With the competitive rise of e-commerce, we want what we want, no matter where it is in the world, and without have to jump on a plane. We seek out the best the earth has to offer, but we don’t want it to cost the earth. 

Enter CHOSEN by One Day Bridal. Offering the cutting edge creative direction One Day Bridal is known for, but available worldwide, it heralds luxury at a more palatable price point. View more of the breathtaking Muse The Collection and shop the designs from anywhere in the world here.

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. To view more of their range and bespoke service, see here.
