French Opulence.

Recalling French chateaus and countryside estates, Campbell Point House brings Parisian sophistication to Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula. A perfect collision of styling and architecture, we love Campbell Point House for natural palettes and sumptuous styling, tree-lined paths and gardens reminiscent of Versailles.

One of our favourite venues for lavish weddings and starlit ceremonies, Campbell Point House is now also servicing guests as a luxury boutique hotel. Offering intimate escapes in palatial surrounds, guests can stay in one of six double bedrooms, each with an en suite and separate sitting area with views over the moody waters of Lake Connewarre.

Find out more on the Campbell Point House website or view LANE Real Weddings held at the estate here, here and here.

Modern Legacy.

Inspired by a childhood spent amongst the Alaskan mountains, the collection from Blair Lauren Brown is an ode to the region’s rugged peaks and wild terrains. An alchemic fusion of raw materials and refined style, expect fluid lines and unexpected shapes, jewels that recall the landscapes of Blair’s birthplace. Now based in New York, Blair has conceived a collection carved from precious stones and alluvial gold. Each piece is handmade and ethically sourced - a mesmeric balance of ancient traditions and contemporary aesthetics.

World Class Dishes.

When planning a wedding, we look for caterers who serve menus reminiscent of the world’s top restaurants. We love degustation dishes and unexpected ingredients, flavor combinations that surprise and plating that inspires. Now, one of our favorite names in Melbourne catering, Fred & Ginger will soon be serving dishes inspired by some of Australia's top culinary talent.

Selected by the renowned Melbourne Food and Wine Festival to produce their House of Food and Wine event series, the Fred & Ginger team is working with the likes of Maurice Terzini (Icebergs), David Moyle (Franklin, Hobart), Paul Carmichael (Momofuku), Scott Pickett (Estelle), Christine Mansfield, Jacques Reymond, and John Susman.

As part of this exclusive pairing, the Fred & Ginger team will be taking inspiration from a range of the recipes produced to add to their wedding and event catering repertoire. Get a first taste of the dishes at the MFWF’s House of Food and Wine series which runs until Sunday April 9, or get in touch with Fred & Ginger on their website

Soft Focus.

Like waves slowly rolling onto the shore, Paris Hawken’s photography washes over you, subtley immersing you in her hypnotic aesthetic. Based in the picturesque Margret River region, Paris draws inspiration from her natural surrounds to capture intimate portraits and wild landscapes with a signature softness that seeps from each frame. Director of the just-launched publication, The Elements Journal, expect dappled light and dancing shadows; each shot a blissful concoction of beautiful moments quietly captured.
