Romance Uncharted.

Of all the places we visit, there are some we never truly leave. Cities so magical and landscapes so enticing that our souls remain behind, a part of ourselves forever lost to the alchemy of the space.

This is the pull of the destination wedding, of places sourced from abroad, venues, cities and landscapes once visited. These are spaces that draw us back, structures that alight the senses and ease the mind, where we have travelled for miles to reach but feel resolutely at home.

New discovery Stefano Santucci captures escape like no other. His latest Real Wedding is an ode to the journey; a celebration of love set amongst Moroccan deserts and sunburnt riads. Capturing the romance in adventure and the allure of escape, Stefano has us dreaming of destination weddings in the most exotic of locations. Think pastel skies and desert plains, where canvas tents melt into the landscape as camels carry guests to a palm-fringed oasis…

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…

A Hidden Oasis.

Forever romanced by sea breezes and hidden gardens, we’ve fallen for the laid-back luxury of new find Bells at Killcare. The epitome of Hamptons elegance with Ralph Lauren furnishings and manicured lawns, we’re dreaming of chic garden parties amongst rolling hills, where guests leisurely play croquet before dancing under a sky lit with stars. A hidden oasis just ninety minutes from Sydney, Bells is nestled amongst some of Australia’s best beaches, offering destination wedding vibes without leaving the city. 

To find out more information, or to book, contact Bells at Killcare on their website.

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.

Santorini Dreaming

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.

Dreaming of Thailand

Destination Weddings…that incredibly romantic concept that logistically (in reality) can cast couples as their own international event planners, rather than the relaxed pair at the centre of celebrations! Not ideal.

Splitting their time between home and abroad, they’re experts at uncovering beautiful venues and accommodation as well as the very best local vendors and suppliers. They’ll also come and meet with you in person, to plan the whole thing. Take a peek at some of their work above, and find out everything you need to know over on their website.
