Poetic Wedding Videography.


There's nothing quite like film to draw you right back into moments that hold a special place and sharpen details have slowly become less vivid. This film by Nathan Kaso of our Anna Sheffield Celestine event in Melbourne, did exactly that. Through artful composition and poetic captures, Nathan captured the dreamy mood, celestial jewels, and the light that poured through this studio space so perfectly. Creating an alluring sensory experience and uniquely nostalgic aesthetic, Nathan prefers not to direct or pose, seeping into the background, using his vintage Canon to capture natural moments and interactions that unfold organically.

Stars Collide.

When stars collide, magic ensues.

Giving access to the perpetually unobtainable and inherently elusive art of couture, are two of our favorites Elle & Adhira and Daphne Newman who have joined together to create a magical collection of veils.

Think hand crafted veils that cascade to the floor, shrouding the figure in an ethereal mystique, cut from the finest silk tulle and finished with floral appliques, intricate beading and scalloped Alecon lace. Offering three limited addition designs that epitomise exquisite craftsmanship and timeless design, you can view and purchase the veils on the Elle & Adhira website.

Laure de Sagazan's New York Atelier.

Stepping into Laure de Sagazan’s New York atelier is like coming home. Intimate, personable and calming, there is a familiarity to the space, where dark floorboards and white walls are softened with potted plants and hanging pendant lights, creamy rugs and wicker chairs. Infused with all the Parisian style and French romance of their original atelier in Paris’ 10th arrondissement, Laure’s latest collection, hangs on racks suspended from the ceiling, next to drawers of vintage accessories Laure hand picks from Parisian flea markets. While the streets of SoHo are alive with an orchestra of city sounds, inside is the picture of serenity, brides enjoying private appointments and expert assistance. 

This atmosphere extends to the gowns themselves, mesmeric creations of ineffable beauty and casual elegance, imbued with that ever desirable sense of je ne sais quoi. Conceived from sketches drawn in the French countryside, each gown is hand sewn by seamstresses in their Parisian atelier, crafted from exquisite fabrics reproduced from 20th century archives. A brand founded on individuality and effortless style, brides are encouraged to modify their gowns, a personal edit of sleeve lengths and hemlines, low backs or buttoned bodices. Modifications are made in house, by a personal seamstress assigned to each bride. 

 Finding sensuality in modesty and desire in details, we’re forever inspired by Laure’s nostalgic approach to bridal. Modern yet classic, liberated yet refined, perfectly paired with vintage jewels and tumbling waves.

To discover the whole collection or schedule an appointment in Paris or New York, see the Laure de Sagazan website.

Frangrant Favors.

Romanced by simple aesthetics and understated design, we love the perfumed creations by Monokle Collection  burning in The LANE office. With a focus on cultivated design and curated scents, each candle is intoxicatingly aromatic, unexpected fragrance profiles with notes of burnt amber and white musk, white grapefruit and honeyed guava, that burn longer and more evenly thanks to a signature wood wick. With an androgynous aesthetic infused with modern minimalism and highlighted with bronze accents, we love Monokle Collection for sensory wedding favours that guests will look forward to taking home.

A Dreamy Canadian Bridal Boutique.

Spilling with natural light, this dreamy converted loft in Calgary, Canada is a little boutique we've discovered run by women who are doing things a little differently in bridal. Completley uninspired by rigid traditions and pretentious assistants, Pearl & Dot is built on the desire to create a relaxed experience for brides. Their approach is intimate and personal and their edit is beautifully understated, stocking some of our favorites by Alexandra Grecco, Anna Campbell, Anais Annette, and our latest love Daphne Newman veils.

Ethereal Adornment.

An alluring juxtaposition of elements, we’re loving the collection of ethereal pieces by Elle + Adhira. Perfect for brides with an affinity for the unexpected, each piece flirts with opposition, simultaneously light and dark, soft and strong, elegant and exotic. Think delicate veils crafted from English net tulle that shroud the face and skim the floor, iridescent earrings of clustered crystals and intricate crowns exquisitely crafted…
