Directional Design

Connecting with the designers and service providers that align with your style can be like searching for the proverbial needle. It's why we spend every single day searching the planet for the best of the best so that the brands we work with can be trusted to deliver the exceptional and outstanding (meaning all you have to do is choose the one most in sync with your style!).

When we discovered the work of Emily Lauren we knew we'd found something special. With a multi-disciplinary approach to styling and a background (and degree) in architectural design, it is this understanding of line, texture and colour, she brings to her stunningly directional stationery design. To view more of the work of Emily Lauren and to enquire about how you might work together on your stationery suite, see here.

Escapism

Forever lulled by the idea of leaving it all behind and running away, dreams of elopement criss cross the minds of many a betrothed couple. The spontaneity, the unknown, the unrestrained, are romantic binary tenets upon which to begin and build a marriage.

Mesmerised by this beauty, Melbourne based photographer Bek Smith artfully captures the hopeful and wistful, the ethereal and serene. With a much loved and revered professional eye, her work not only immortalises, but inspires. To view more of her stunning work and to enquire about how you might best work with Bek Smith, see here.

Balinese Utopia

Add to that luxurious interiors and surrounds, and an experienced events team to take care of everything, and it’s literally the island wedding of your dreams minus the stressful details.

Blanc Canvas

The allure of minimalism is that there is nowhere to hide. It is a discipline that is sheerly exposed, no shrubbery to hide uneven ground, just the angular granite of perfection, culminating in the sum whole of flawlessness.

Forever fans of such artful restraint, we're in love with the UNBRIDALED by Dan Jones collection for this very reason. Espousing a bridal look we're currently obsessing over (the juxtaposition of a minimal gown and ornate cathedral veil, see more here), it is a collection that is symphonic in it's simplicity.

Moon & Back

Once upon a time wedding videography was optional. It seemed like a luxury alongside a wedding photographer, but in an increasingly digitalised world where we store our memories online, the wedding video has become a vital added dimension of reminisce. A chance to relive the day again, with all of the laughter, tears, speeches, looks, and details immortalised for a lifetime, shared online with friends and family to enjoy at will. Like wedding photographers, there’s a plethora of service providers and navigating them can be a minefield when you only get one chance to capture the day of your dreams.

We have been proud to recommend Melbourne based Purple Ribbon Weddings as a film co. Renowned for delivering over and above every single time, and the first choice for those with unlimited choice (such as Nadia and Jimmy Bartel, and blogger Saasha Burns (above) their work undeniably speaks for itself. We’re so excited to announce their stunning rebrand to Moon&Back. Invigorated by the love stories that have taken them to the four corners of the globe, gathering their indelible beauty, they now bring the same breathtaking cinematography they are known for, with a deepened passion and level of experience, to Moon&Back.
