Bridal Hairpieces By Liv Hart001

Inspired by the ethereal beauty  of the painting “Dreamers” by Albert Joseph Moore comes the new Enchanted Atelier By Liv Hart The Dreamers Collection. Beautiful gilded hairpieces, delicately crafted combs, crowns, hairbands and veils mimic garden vines, fresh floral blooms and delicate butterflies – each designed to add a touch of ethereal beauty to their wearer.

Crafted from precious metals – 14 karat golds, brass and silver with Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls and the finest of fabrics, the Liv Hart team works to create quality pieces that reflect beautiful detail and well thought out styling – all inspired by Liv’s own fine art degree and love of expressing oneself through art.

The pieces are available via the Enchanted Atelier By Liv Hart website and at Primrose & Finch in Australia.

Lucy & Mathew

I am very much enchanted by the beauty of Lucy and Matthew’s bohemian country backyard wedding. The couple chose Lucy’s family property for their wedding, a place that held many happy memories from her childhood and for Matt and her time together. They worked with IZO Photography to capture their wedding day.

On how they met, Lucy tells, “Mathew & I met at The Wine Bar in Dunsborough in 2010. I was out with a friend for my 18th birthday and Mat was down from Perth on a surfing trip. We met at the bar and immediately liked each other. We both got a shot of Frangelico and where inseparable for the rest of the night. The rest is history :)”

The bride chose  Anna Campbell for her wedding day, noting, “I wore a dress by Anna Campbell; a bohemian inspired collection that really complimented Mat & I’s style of wedding. I chose this dress because it was beautiful and different to the other wedding dresses I had seen.

There is only one shop in WA that sells these dresses (Soul Sisters Fremantle) so I knew this designer was the one to go with. Before Mat had even proposed I had been looking at the Anna Campbell dresses knowing I was going to wear one at our wedding. My first visit to Soul Sisters was with one of my bridesmaids and as soon as I put on my dress I knew it was the dress. I took my mum, grandmother and one of my sisters to see the dress a couple of weeks later and they agreed.” Lucy’s bridesmaids wore pewter grey gowns from Two Birds Bridesmaid.

“Our Ceremony and reception was at Jesters Flat Equestrian Centre in Margaret River. Jesters Flat is my parent’s business and home. Three generations of my family have lived on the property so it seemed fitting to get married there.”

Lucy remembers, “The song “Halo” by Ann Brun was played while the flower girl and bridesmaids walked down the aisle. The song faded out and we had a violinist play while my Dad and I walked down the aisle.”

Hugh Galloway officiated the ceremony, the bride remembering, “We wanted the ceremony to be about love and family and have a romantic and fun feel to it. We had Mat’s cousin do a reading of “Desiderata”. The priest was my mother’s uncle which made everything really relaxed and fun.”

Of their photographer, the bride remembers, “Jimmy & Shona from IZO photographer were just amazing! IZO Photography was recommended to us by a friend and we were not disappointed. Jimmy put everyone at ease on the day with his calm and capable manor. Most of the guests did not even notice that him and the second photographer where around which made for great natural photos. We could not recommend IZO photography enough. They where just incredible!!”

“We both wanted the focus of the wedding to be on family, friends and our love. We placed photos of our family around, I had my grandmother and her sisters make our wedding cake and we had a local band play for most of the night.”

“We had a great local band playing called The Brothers Thin who made the atmosphere just amazing. Later that night they where joined by another band member. The band then got everyone up to start the bush dance. It was so much fun and really got everyone up and meeting each other.”

Supper Road catered the wedding, Lucy remembering, “Our food was done by Supper Road. They are a local company that have a huge mobile kitchen. The food was amazing, people are still talking about it! I loved the whole wedding planning experience. It was stressful in the last few weeks but was definitely worth it!”

Playful Gemstone Inspired Bridesmaid Luncheon

Playful Gemstone Inspired Bridesmaid Luncheon013

I feel like there is almost nothing better than a long lunch with your favourite girlfriends and today’s inspiration focuses on that very thing – the bond between a bride and her bridesmaids.

Photographer Kylie of  ​Just For Love Photography tells, “So often we see inspiration shoots ​that are always focused on the wedding day, but there are so many special & memorable moments spent leading up to the wedding, that are often forgotten about. We wanted to provide girls with some ideas in which they could ask their closest friends to be their bridesmaids… ​in a heartfelt yet fun way, not only popping the question to them, but also making them feel as special as they are to the bride! ”

Kylie teamed up with stylist and floral designer Coco & Confetti, calligrapher Floralovely Calligraphy, with decor from  Kolo The Wanderlust Effect and The Wedding Shed and silk ribbon from Feathers & Stone and gorgeous girls Madalyn, Maddie, Regan, Meg & Jess​ ​to bring this vision to life at the stunning Byron View Farm.

Emma of  Coco & Confetti leads us through the story. “Nestled in the shade of a bamboo grove on a hinterland estate in Byron Bay, a bride-to-be invites her girlfriends to join her party as bridesmaids, with a colourful and playful picnic escape. ​ ​The bride welcomes the girls at the country gate and leads them to at a low, lavishly decorated table where they lounge on the lawn together to share a feast amidst the soft bohemian furnishings.”

“They chat and laugh and celebrate moments past as they had done for years on end and hoped to carry on for years to come. There’s a palpable sense of fun and the styling feeds into this energy with hyper-colour florals, which play off the bright rich hues of the gemstone feature pieces and are complemented by textured accents of ivory and brass.”

“​As the afternoon wanders on towards sundown, the bride invites her besties to accompany her to the escarpment, where she pops the question “Will you be my bridesmaid?” on the silk-ribbon tails of personalised, hand-crafted kites.”
