Boldness and Fragility.

Selecting jewelry is an experience that is deeply personal. It is the most delicate expression of the self, a curated exposé into the nuances and particularities of the wearer. For those inately drawn to purity and simplicity, Natalie Marie has long been one of our favorites.

The allure of Natalie's pieces lies in the fragility of her designs and the beauty of the craftsmanship; a balance of delicate bands paired with bold stones (think pear-shaped champagne quartz and cubic white diamonds balanced on the most petite rose gold bands). Each bespoke piece is hand crafted in Natalie's studio in Sydney's northern beaches. More details on the Natalie Marie website.

Bridesmaid Dresses Rewritten.

We know all too well the struggle to find chic bridesmaid dresses (and the scary options that Google search returns!) For simple silhouettes that can be styled to suit any aesthetic we love new discovery Rewritten, born out of designer Katie Arnott and Frances Cookson’s frustration with the wedding industry's unflattering cuts & outdated colors. Ubiquitously flattering and effortlessly stylish, think off the shoulder detailing and wrap skirts; evening wear reimagined in beautifully muted tints of salmon and aubergine. Discover the full collection on the Rewritten website

Transportive Melbourne Caterers.

When it comes to Melbourne caterers... actually when it comes to any caterer we've worked with globally on any event, Food & Desire sit high at the top of our list. With their reputation for innovative dishes, seasonal flavors and beautiful plating, they came highly recommended for our Anna Sheffield Celestine event. And they wildly surpassed any expectation.

We're particular when it comes to the aesthetics of an event, but Food & Desire took our catering brief to a whole new level with high expecations of their own, combing over every tiny detail of presentation (down to sourcing the most beautiful marble dishes for our dessert bar) and creating one of the most exquisite cocktail menus we've sampled, proving in an instant why their client list consists of the likes of Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Tiffany & Co. 

Known for their palatable flavours that spark conversation and elevate moods, and food inspired by intrepid travels abroad, Food & Desire create dishes infused with a nomadic sense of wonder, transporting guests to hidden laneways of Paris or the vibrant corners of Barcelona... see more about their bespoke services on the Food & Desire website

Editorial Frames.

For wedding photography with an editorial edge, we love new discovery Lost in Love. With a background in commercial and fashion photography expect breathtaking compositions infused with a poetry of light and movement that captures raw emotion and wild romance. Think forgotten moments beautifully captured, shots filtered with dappled light and shadows that dance across the frame. Based in Europe from July to September, we love Lost in Love for destination weddings in far flung locations across the globe. Think breathtaking gowns perfectly captured before the rolling hills of Chianti, the old-world romance of Paris or the whitewashed cliffs of Santorini…

To find out more about Lost in Love, or to get in touch, see their website here.

Hypnotic Beauty.

 

There's something about the mood Israeli designer Dana Harel evokes, in every tiny detail she puts her hand to. A wild, hypnotic beauty in the rhythmic movement of each piece, an intricacy in every stitch and a rare talent for making opulent feel impossibly effortless. This beautiful behind the scenes clip of the latest Desert Dreams collection, captures it all.
