This playful fox is always out and about, wanting to play and is up to no good like stealing food and berries. Just like us in our younger days, we are always up to no good, wanting to see what’s out there and trying to find ourselves and who we are as a person, finding that other half.

Loving this new season upon us, the warm deep colours which just pops out of the usual greenery we see everyday. I have always adored foxes and thought to myself, if I were to be an Autumn bride, what is it that will bring some warmth to my wedding?

Easy, some fur wraps will make my dress a little more stylist and will keep me warm as I walk down the aisle. Please note that fake fur has been used for this photoshoot.

The shoot is a mixture of florals and fur, we wanted a transformation of the bride. Having the bride’s playful side yet also her serious glamorous side. Foxes are never predictable and so the shoot is filled with both sides but keeping a rustic and woodland feel.

Alanna’s Hens Day

To the beautiful bride to be Alanna. I’m so happy to have been part of your special weekend in Bowral. You are such an amazing person inside and outside!

The day started off as soon as I landed back in Sydney from my holiday in Japan. As soon I landed in the morning, it was just sooo cold but the day started warming up and the sun came out playing. I got home to get my gear and then heading to the amazing event.

It’s so beautiful, the place just took my breath away and i was thinking how wonderful it would be to get married here. Such an amazing land!

A black and white theme, so elegant ♥♥♥  It was beautiful having floral crowns and tarot card reading and yummy drinks…I just cannot wait for the big day and see you in white! Love you =)

As the song goes “a tale as old as time” …this classic fairy tale story has always been one of my favourites since I can remember. I’ve wanted to move away from the vintage look so this shoot was about bringing modern twists to a classic favourite.

The photoshoot took place under the sunny skies of Sydney, on one of the greenery parklands put together by one creative team. Eliska from Ruffles & Bells is such a remarkable stylist bringing in all the elements together, using  a colour palette of yellow, gold, purple and blue.

This was a very exciting shoot as we have a real couple who happens to be both professional models. Lea Michelle and her partner Rede Carney were amazing to work with, bring this romantic shoot to life.

Miss Julie Makeup showcased her amazing makeup and hair styling creating different fresh looks for Lea and at the same time complimenting the beautiful bridal gowns from Savvy Brides. We were lucky to have the Grace gown designed by Rose and Delilah as one of the gowns for ‘Beauty’.

As for Rede’s look, we wanted to capture a causal look to depict the ‘Beast’ wearing casual and ripped clothes, but as the shoot evolved, the ‘Beast’ started to be more dressy to impress ‘Bell’ and capture her love. The shoot then ends with the a grand tablescape celebrating their love, featuring candlesticks and rustic accents.

To tie everything together, we had Minnie’s Sweet Creations creating incredible cakes and sweets for the couple and working hand-in-hand with 2 Love Birds Sweet Design’s stationery design. The stationeries featured a damask print which was then digital printed on the cookies and cake with rich colours of purple and blue.

Hanako from Hanako Floral Designs created several masterpieces for the flowers for the shoot. Using berries, David Austen roses and yellow tulips, she created a perfect balance to describe Belle’s mysterious and sweet personality that translates into her style. as well.
