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.

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.

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.

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.

Favors have traditionally been, well, hardly favors…at least not to the styling of a tablescape. Coming up with a memento that’s meaningful and beautiful has for some time, been a tradition many brides have chosen to forgo, based on how difficult a task it is to find something just right.
When we discovered Maple Soaps we couldn’t wait to see whether they smelt as good as they looked, and the truth is, they’re even better. With scents as divine as rose geranium+pink french clay, spiced orange, and ylang ylang+vanilla bean, the best part is you can work with Maple Soaps to create bespoke favors that double as place cards. Personal, beautiful, experiential, and a chic part of the wedding tablescape; favor problem solved. To view more of the range and to enquire about working with Maple Soaps, see here.

Rawness and fluidity characterise the hand-forged designs of goldsmith Lenka Šváchová under her label 27JEWELRY. Deeply connecting with her materials she tirelessly toils on one-of-a-kind pieces, shape-shifting them from earthen form to wearable art, with as little manipulation as possible. Speaking to the souls of women, 27JEWELRY is a celebration of organic splendours, exquisite craftsmanship, and the polarity of the precious with the wild and free. To view more of her curiously beautiful work and to enquire about working on your engagement and wedding rings with 27JEWELRY, see here.
