Highlights This Month.

April at The LANE evolved in a flurry of movement. Our office-turned-studio was brimming with visionary artists as three major shoots unfolded, and we're so excited to share the results. From world-class chefs to Parisian designers and New York Bridal Fashion Week, these are our highlights from a month of compelling creativity…

Having cooked for the likes of Kate Moss and Adele, we were mesmerized as Studio Neon’s Aaron Teece took over The LANE kitchen. Unexpected flavors and inspired plating using Phendei and Batch ceramics, Cutipol cutlery and Cultiver linen, this shoot is coming soon to The LANE…

Wildflowers and delicate lace gowns... this editorial shoot had us totally mesmerized. Produced in collaboration with the incredibly talented Edwards and Co, Thanh Vo, Grandiflora, ElleryRyan StorerLucy Folk, and Sarah & Sebastian, stay tuned...

Edwards and Co transformed our office into a hair salon as they dreamt up fresh inspiration for bridal hair. Think tousled waves and unexpected up-dos, all styled on one of our favorite models, Izi Simundic, shot by Paste Studios.

In a diaphanous whirlwind of luxurious feminine silhouettes and exquisite detailing, Gritty Pretty’s Eleanor Pendleton visited our La Porte Deux home to create the stunning first look book for Pallas Collective.

The latest addition to the Pallas Couture atelier, we’re thrilled to exclusively unveil the Pallas Collective line and look book (shot by one of our favorites, Alli Oughtred!), soon on The LANE.

Set amongst the hypnotic landscapes of Queensland’s Girraween National Park, Gavin James’ portrait series has us enraptured. Think evocative frames in moody hues, an ode to lost loves and dark romance…

After months of planning and anticipation, we were finally front row and backstage as our favorite designers unveiled their new collections at New York Bridal Fashion Week, including this Mira Zwillinger creation that left us speechless.

The newest addition to Maple Soaps’ collection has us simultaneously dreaming of escaping to wildly exotic destinations and snuggling up with a cup of Earl Grey. Handmade in Sydney and beautifully packaged, their new Bay Leaf and Bergamot soap bar is refreshing to the senses and an inspired idea for favors that won’t be left on the table.

Drawn to clean lines and monochromatic styling, we’re loving the latest stationary sets from Written Word Calligraphy. Like a flawlessly tailored noir tuxedo, this set is timelessly beautiful and perfectly minimalist, with hues of ebony and highlights of pearl.

Bespoke Favors

Favors have traditionally been, well, hardly favors…at least not to the styling of a tablescape. Coming up with a memento that’s meaningful and beautiful has for some time, been a tradition many brides have chosen to forgo, based on how difficult a task it is to find something just right.

When we discovered Maple Soaps we couldn’t wait to see whether they smelt as good as they looked, and the truth is, they’re even better. With scents as divine as rose geranium+pink french clay, spiced orange, and ylang ylang+vanilla bean, the best part is you can work with Maple Soaps to create bespoke favors that double as place cards. Personal, beautiful, experiential, and a chic part of the wedding tablescape; favor problem solved. To view more of the range and to enquire about working with Maple Soaps, see here.

Botanical Favors

One of our most recommended (& effective) ways to extend upon styling for a reception are sensory favors, beautifully packaged. Opting for gifts that feel reflective of your destination, the landscape, your floral styling or even a favourite memory each offers a beautiful recollection for guests once taken home, not to mention a gorgeous additional layer to reception table styling. These creations by Maple Soaps, with their tactile illustrated paper and the option to customise messages feel particularly perfect for a garden wedding, or those wishing to draw the outside in.

Sensory Favors

Forever inspired by sensory styling, those clever and not-too-literal ways to weave of layers of scent and flavour throughout your wedding, we're in love with the botanical creations by Maple Soaps. Able to be completely customised with your own names or unique message, and so beautifully packaged they require no re-wrapping, they're the perfect extension of theme laid down tables (or arranged at a favor station, spilling with blooms or branches). Head to the Maple Soaps website to check out the entire range including our favourite, Rose Geranium.
