Today’s Christmas colour palette of teal and gold is somewhat of a modern take on green and gold but I fell in love with the richness of the teal combined with the different shimmering golds. From bright metallic, to something more aged – it provides a spectacular contrast.

You could go completely glitz and glam with this colour palette – a gold sequin table cloth with a teal table runner. Or something more understated by using a mix of teal and gold centrepiece details (like candle holders) on crisp white linen.

The Little Truffle on the Gold Coast. Amazing. End.of.

My Favourite Wedding Story…
My favourite wedding was a career defining moment. When I was still studying I won a competition to learn with a prominent wedding and portrait photographer in Sydney. As I’m based on the Gold Coast this was pretty awesome. So, when I went down for the class I plucked up the courage and asked him if I might be able to complete my wedding assessment and shoot with him. He said ‘of course’ which was a big deal to me, but not as big as when I flew down and turned up to this wedding which just happened to be at St Mary’s Cathedral (yep, the massive one in the heart of Sydney)! My jaw just dropped. Shooting that wedding was amazing and I enjoyed every minute of being a part of that couple’s special day. I’ll never forget the kindness shown to me by a veteran of the industry and the sheer wonder of walking with him into a place like that. From that moment on, I knew weddings were for me and I’ve never looked back…

I’ve always loved the precious nature of vintage glass Christmas ornaments. They come in such beautiful colours and today’s Christmas colour palette of candy pink and gold is just the ticket for a vintage inspired celebration.

The different hues of pink – from magenta, to dusky pink and the sweetest candy pink paired with gold is a completely different take on Christmas colours, yet somehow is completely charming and completely festive.
