Rambling Arrangements.

When fashion favourites Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler, Saint Laurent and Marchesa enlist the services of the same florist, you know you’ve discovered a gem. Denise Porcaro of Flower Girl NYC is our latest discovery for whimsical botanicals with an editorial edge. Located in a dreamy studio in NYC’s Lower East Side, every bouquet looks nonchalantly handpicked and effortlessly arranged, the epitome of rambling beauty and wild romance. Think bouquets of muted hydrangeas and feathery peonies, where orchids add structure and leafy greens cascade over the hands… 

Perfect for city ceremonies and destination events, see more of Flower Girl NYC on their website.

An Exclusive Divine Beauty Cosmetic Clutch & Miniature Series for LANE Readers.

Water evaporates and turns to rain, seeds fall and grow into trees, wildflowers spring from cracks in the pavement and vines cover forgotten buildings. We are participants in an inextricable cycle of connectedness, we take from the earth and the earth takes from us, a perpetual process of becoming and unbecoming.

Certified organic, natural and Australian made, we’re so inspired by The Divine Company’s sustainable approach to skincare. One of our favourite new discoveries, we fell in love with their refreshingly authentic ethos of simple, honest beauty that works as closely as possible with the natural environment to create luxurious products that enrich your skin and your soul. With beautifully minimalist packaging, their products make perfect gifts, otherwise keep them for yourself and incorporate them into your pre-wedding beauty routine.

To give you the opportunity to sample these beautiful products, we've partnered with The Divine Company to provide an exclusive offer to LANE readers. For the next 72 hours you will receive a free Miniature Series and Cosmetics Clutch (see below) when you enter the code THELANE on their website at check out, valued at $49.95

Couture Veils.

Amongst a sea of labels in the bridal industry, there are designers you stumble across whose pieces completely stop you. There’s a magic behind their work that’s hard to put your finger on, a passion you know comes from a deeply inspired place. And as you delve a little deeper into their story, you learn that it's a boldness these creatives share that separates their work. A desire to do things differently, to take the hard route if they have to, to create work that does justice to the ideas they dream up.

When it comes to boldness and passion, Daphne Newman has it in spades. Daphne's veils are inimitable, and the difference lies in the story imbued in every piece. Scouring the globe for rare European fabrics, Daphne creates designs inspired by the memories of her journey to find each piece of lace, and the people behind it. The result is a decadent, couture-like approach to veils, with intricate embroidery and delicate scalloped lace woven over diaphanous layers of tulle, or blends of beading and fringing that feel like wearable art. 

Here’s a little peek at some of our favorites we recently shot in NYC. Head over to the Daphne Newman website to shop the collection or enquire about a bespoke piece that can be customised to suit your gown.

The Flower Dispensary Masterclass.

Whimsical blooms in dreamy hues spilled over table tops, foraged foliage suspended from the ceiling... we’re lusting over these shots of the latest workshop from one of our favourite Melbourne florists, The Flower Dispensary.  

Drawing cues from nature, we love the Flower Dispensary’s aesthetic, where peonies, roses, freesias and delphiniums intertwine into creations that are arftul and dramatic yet mirror the effortless formation of nature in wildly cascading shapes (the key to wedding floral installations to ensure they don't look contrived.)

Hunter Valley Venue Discoveries.

Nestled among the rolling hills of the Hunter Valley NSW, with an inimitable sense of old world grandeur, our latest venue discovery beautifully blends historic charm and modern elegance.

Think a garden ceremony under their ancient fig tree, moving through whimsical gardens and past cobble stone walls for your wedding pictures, entering a lavish garden reception space where an infinity tablescape spills with blooms, surrounded by panoramic country views that segue into star filled skies. Read more about holding an event at Wallalong House here.

Layered Adornment.

Beautifully minimalist and elegantly refined, we’re loving the foundation collection from New York based Rosey West. Think simple gold rings encrusted with delicate diamonds, chic bracelets, and artfully clustered jewels in juxaposed shapes. Founded on a core belief that adorning yourself in jewels is an almost meditative expression of self and your personal aesthetic, Rosey West jewels are designed to layer and make your own.
