Dew-kissed webs of exquisite embellishment and intricate hand-beading woven over silk, romantic laces, and fastidious attention to shape and structure, typify the stunning new collection Ceremony by Melbourne based designer Anna Campbell.
Launching today, the collection is inspired by the heightened sense of self, surroundings and spirituality that encapsulate the rare sanctity of the ceremony, marking a stunning coming of age for the designer, who earlier this year experienced the ethereality of the aisle for herself.
Quintessentially feminine and romantic, the Ceremony collection is available from today at Anna Campbell’s Melbourne flagship boutique (make your appointment here!), extensive US and UK Trunk Show dates from next week (see dates and make your appointment here), and online to purchase here.

When an elopement is a thousand times more beautiful in reality than the hopeful romanticism of it…
The decision to elope is fraught with managing emotions, opinions, expectations and what seems like infinite details and forward planning. But when it comes down to it, when everything is locked in, and it’s just you and the person you have chosen to spend the rest of your life with, the most critical aspect on the day is intimacy.
In love with the quietness captured in this stunning elopement in the Greek Islands by Damien Milan Photography (a favoured photographer we use for our own events!). Like peering at beauty unfolding through the hole in a fence, or from behind a hedge, there’s an intimacy preserved that makes you forget there was a photographer even present, so undisrupted are the nuanced moments captured.

A unique alternative to a standard gift registry (that we absolutely love!) is a Wine Gift Registry. For weddings that require travel, it saves guests juggling gifts on and off planes etc while allowing a bride and groom to begin their married life with a well stocked cellar of thoughtful handpicked bottles they can enjoy for years to come. Our pick of the best is by Wine Please, an online platform that allows you to create your own personal registry (for free!) from a selection to suit every budget and calibre of taste.
Remember to have a posca handy as you’re stocking the cellar to write on the bottom of the bottle which loved one the gift is from, so you can remember to toast them when the time comes! To create your own Wine Gift Registry with Wine Please, see here.

Imbued with resilience, enduring femininity and precious nostalgia, behind the smile of breathtaking design and unique eastern european textiles, the creations of Melbourne based Nevenka carry with them a moving story of strength, love and honour. A tribute to the flow of life, loss, and a celebration of new beginnings and endless possibilities, the far flung yet homegrown romance of Nevenka, has a palpable authenticity and grandeur like no other (and at a pleasantly surprising price point!).
With Trunk Shows coming up in London, Paris and New York, we are so excited to announce the below opportunities for international brides to experience Nevenka:
London | Knightsbridge : 23rd - 25th September
Paris | Le Marais : 29th Sept - 1st October
USA | New York : 8th - 9th October

"You deserve a lover who wants you dishevelled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep. You deserve a lover who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin. You deserve a lover who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions. You deserve a lover who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall. You deserve a lover who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry." - Frida Kahlo
