Ethereal Victoriana.

As years slip by, we find ourselves reaching for tales of old, for classic works and great romances - stories that speak to the sentimentalities of decades past. Think Dickens and Wilde, the Brontës and Yeats; tales where desire is in the details and allure in the forbidden.

Like a classic novel, the newest collection by Delphine Manivet channels enduring romance and timeless love. Each design is infused with softness; delicate fabrics falling from the body, pooling over hands and below feet. Inspired by elegant Victorian silhouettes, the collection speaks to an alchemic infusion of old and new. Think tall, ornate collars and ball gowns reimaged through alluring bare backs and sheer fabrics. Effortlessly graceful and classically feminine, here modern aesthetics are tinted by nostalgia...

Crafted in France, Delphine Manivet offers a variety of gowns suited to opulent ceremonies through to minimal receptions. E-shop the collection here, or discover more on the Delphine Manivet website

Turquoise Tides.

Mesmerized by inky palettes and turquoise tides, The Avalon on the Beach has us dreaming of weddings overlooking a deep cerulean seascape. On our recent visit to the space, we found ourselves drawn to the magnetic beauty of the coast, styling a tablescape that spoke to the metaphoric transition of sand to sea.  Think lush linens, tendrils of orchids, draped gauze and place cards inscribed with curling calligraphy mimicking the lulling movement of waves.

Perched above a transfixing coastline, we love The Avalon for weddings that embody euphoric oceanic living. Think alfresco dining and panoramic water views, vows exchanged to a soundtrack of the sea and dinners held under a silvery starlit sky.

Future Heirlooms.

The 21st century is one defined by consumption. Think fast fashion and fleeting trends, digital designs and standardized styling. We find ourselves searching for items crafted by hand, products that feed our nostalgia for time-honored process and bespoke heirlooms that last.

Romanced by design and creative collaboration, new discovery Rohan Jewellery creates handcrafted jewels using old-world techniques. Designs are sketched in front of your eyes, a manifestation of your thoughts, style, and aesthetic tastes. The process is inherently collaborative and clients are invited to watch the crafting process, to become part of the creative journey. More than just decoration, each piece is entrenched in sentimentality. These are adornments inextricable from the emotions that built them, pieces that speak to art, history and personal stories.

Poetic Moments.

When choosing a wedding photographer, look for those who double as storytellers. Search for portfolios of images that work in cohesion, frames that melt effortlessly into the next to weave stories of wild romance and fortuitous love.

Quyn Duong is one to watch. Her portfolio unfolds like classic literature. Think moody frames in warm hues; shots that capture raw emotions and relive the most touching of moments. Duong uses cinematic lighting and atmospheric touches to explore the beauty in the simplicity of love, and romance in moments that go unnoticed. Highly regarded for her evocative shots and hypnotic frames, we're so excited to announce Quyn is lending her lens to weddings around New York City and abroad.

Romance Uncharted.

Of all the places we visit, there are some we never truly leave. Cities so magical and landscapes so enticing that our souls remain behind, a part of ourselves forever lost to the alchemy of the space.

This is the pull of the destination wedding, of places sourced from abroad, venues, cities and landscapes once visited. These are spaces that draw us back, structures that alight the senses and ease the mind, where we have travelled for miles to reach but feel resolutely at home.

New discovery Stefano Santucci captures escape like no other. His latest Real Wedding is an ode to the journey; a celebration of love set amongst Moroccan deserts and sunburnt riads. Capturing the romance in adventure and the allure of escape, Stefano has us dreaming of destination weddings in the most exotic of locations. Think pastel skies and desert plains, where canvas tents melt into the landscape as camels carry guests to a palm-fringed oasis…
