Penfolds has a long standing name in Oz for producing fine wine – I’m a big fan of Magill Estate in South Australia for an amazing dinner (with an even more amazing view).

In celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Penfolds Koonunga Hill – they got some fabulous Aussie names to design a wine bottle.

– Fashion Designer, Collette Dinnigan (Semillon Sauvignon Blanc)
– International Chef, Tetsuya Wakuda (Shiraz Cabernet)
– Author, Bryce Courtenay (Cabernet Sauvignon)
– Sporting Legend, John Eales (Cabernet Merlot)- Australian of the Year, Professor Ian Frazer (Chardonnay)

My personal favourite is the Collette Dinnigan bottle of course! These were released September last year, so get in quick! A portion of the sales go to the celebrity’s nominated charity.

Out of everything wedding- the symbolism of the wedding rings is the most important part of the day. So when I came across Larsen Jewellery’s wedding rings I was thrilled to read about their design process.

With drinks and nibbles in hand, you and your loved one are invited to design your own ring, and then with the help of one of Larsen’s qualified jewelers, sit together and create the ring- from the very first melting, to the polishing- it’s all done by you- creating a wedding ring that is truly about you and made with love. To celebrate with a glass of bubbles is just the ticket!

Larsen are dedicated to making this experience memorable – photographs can be taken, a free lifetime of polishes and a beautiful box all add to what is sure to be one of the most memorable experiences of planning your wedding.

Whipped pink sweet goodness

I recently read about Aussie baker Kylie Lambert on one of my favourite wedding blogs Oh Joy! here comes the bride Kylie hails from Sydney and what started as a love of baking turned into Le Cupcake!

Amazing decorations make these cupcakes almost too good to eat!

Kylie owns and runs Le Cupcake– a Sydney bakery creating divine cupcakes for all kinds of occasions- but for what we love- weddings- they’re an extra special touch! Kylie makes all the cupcakes herself and offers a wide range of flavours for both cake and icing- ranging from meringue buttercream to sour cream deluxe.

But the real creativity is in the decoration! Stenciled icing patterns, perfectly placed flowers, beautifully shaped creatures all adorn the cupcakes and turn something sweet into something amazing.

Kylie is definitely not someone I’d like to bake against at the school fete!
