Lauren & Mark

There is something really exciting to me about young love, or young love as today’s photographer Adam Ward Photography describes it. There is so much time ahead and so much learning and growing to do – all with your person right by your side. Lauren and Mark originally met at school but started dating at university. They married in April of this year.

On what they love about one another, Lauren & Mark tell, “I don’t think we could put it down to one thing. But in the words of Billy Joel “I don’t want clever, conversation, I never want to work that hard, I just want someone, that I can talk to, I want you just the way you are”.”

Mark proposed in new York! The story told as, “We had been dating for about 6 years and were in the USA for the Christmas Holidays. Lauren’s parents were with us for a week in New York prior to Christmas. Mark asked Lauren’s parents the  “Big Question” whilst the girls were shopping on Christmas Eve. After Lunch we met up at Central Park for the token horse and carriage ride. Mark proposed at the Bethesda Terrace Fountain with a Micky Mouse ring purchased from Disneyland a couple of weeks prior. Lauren said Yes and then Mark said “don’t worry Tiffany’s is just around the corner”.”

Of having photos on the beach, Lauren and Mark tell, “Even though we lived and grew up on the Gold Coast a beach wedding wasn’t really us. We wanted to incorporate the beach somewhere in the roller coaster ride that is preparing a wedding. So it just seemed right to have the engagement shoot at the Spit. We didn’t really think to hard about it just sort of happened.”

This colour palette of creamy grey and white for Christmas is a little more visually interesting than something all white. The creamyness of the white is so warming and paired with the soft greys can look completely modern or completely natural.

Add decor in these colours to a raw wood table top or a real pine tree for the latter. Or pair it with white and plenty of sparkling tones for something modern.

The classic gold and black of this colour palette won me over. Perhaps we’re more used to seeing this colour combination on New Years Eve than Christmas, but really it can work for any celebration. The bright cranberry lip adds a pop of colour to the other monochrome (albeit glittery) tones of champagne and charcoal.

I’ve always loved the combination of bold cherry red with a softer, duck egg style blue and I love how the combination turned out for this Christmas colour palette. Red is already a festive colour and adding the softness of blue is unexpected, but beautiful.
