Pallas Couture Wedding Gowns005 Pallas Couture 2015 ‘La Promesse’ Collection

I’m always eager for the release of new bridal collections from talented Australian designers and with the release of Pallas Couture‘s Summer 2015 Collection I was not disappointed!

Entitled ‘La Promesse’ the collection draws inspiration from the dramatic lustre and entrancing beauty of the great film stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Silver screen stars like Sophia Loren who was loved for her sensuality off screen as much as she was in her famed roles inspired exaggerated feminine silhouettes, combining sculptured shapes and princess style shapes with a chic sense of style.

With detailing like nude paneling, intricate laces and detailed beading, the gowns feature incredible fabrics like French laces, silks and Italian embroideries.

The most exciting journey ahead for Pallas Couture culminates in their New York Bridal Fashion Week debut in October ahead of the gowns being available at both their flagship boutiques in Sydney and Perth.

sydney wedding planners Vendor of the Week Special Event Planners

I have often spoken about the value of a wedding planner on Polka Dot Bride and I am no less convinced as time goes by that hiring a wedding planner is a worthy expense when it comes to your vendors.

Our vendor of the week Special Event Planners knows her stuff when it comes to wedding planning without the stress. This Sydney based company (who also cover the South Coast and Southern Highlands) can do everything from complete wedding management (think run sheets, rehearsals, liaising with suppliers) to partial planning or just on the day management. From planning comes creativity and Special Event Planners also have a creative styling team who can assist you in pulling together your design ideas into one cohesive look.

We asked Rhianna from Special Event Planners five questions in five minutes -

What is your favourite after five drink?

A glass (or 3) of red. Unless it’s the weekend, in which case I may (more than likely) start before five, and it may (more than likely) be a Caprioska.

Your favourite weekend getaway?

Forster. I grew up there. It holds a special place in my heart.

Favourite restaurant?

Husband and I love to eat out, and I have so many faves! I love Yum Cha so we go to Golden Harbour in China town a bit. But when staying local, I can’t go past a lunch with the girls at The Lagoon in North Wollongong.

What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?

Poached Eggs at The Tin Shed in Thirroul. Unless I’m packing down a wedding in which case it would be a piece of toast whilst running out the door (boring, I know!)

Your favourite wedding story?

Well it’s more of a pre wedding story. The lovely groom to be hired me to style and coordinate his wedding proposal. We completely covered the headland of Camp Cove (a special place for the couple) in candlelight and arranged for an acoustic musician to learn the couple’s song.

We set up a small table under the candlelit tree, with Moet and strawberries, and hid in the darkness as he led his lady down the lantern lit steps of Camp Cove and into their own little romantic oasis overlooking the city. As they made their way to the table Hein Cooper was playing their song, an awesome acoustic version of This Is It by Michael Jackson. He got down on one knee and popped the question. She said yes, followed by a delightful squeal and a twirl in the arms of her fiancé. It was so beautiful to witness (even if I was just creeping in the shadows).

Beck & Sam

 The scenery that provided the setting for today’s engagement shoot completely captivated me. Sun burnt grass against the bluest of seas, rugged coastline and a golden sunset. Sounds like a romantic setting for a romantic day out doesn’t it? Beck and Sam chose Victor Harbor for their engagement photos with Joshua Kane Photography. They both love this underrated part of Australia and along with their photographer (who started his career at this very spot) chose the incredible coastline for their session.

On how they met, the lovebirds tell, “We met whilst we were both studying at University. We were on a pub crawl of about 300 people and were introduced through a mutual friend. We started talking, realised quickly we had a lot in common, made each other laugh and we were both attracted to each other. It just felt right.”

“We both love the way we make each other laugh, we have fun together, and are always there to support each other no matter what. We both have a strong sense of Family and we consider ourselves very lucky to be apart of each others. We are both determined and passionate people and we bring the best out in each other in what we want to achieve as individuals and together.”

The proposal was very appropriate for their relationship! The story goes, “Sam had organised dinner at our favourite restaurant on a Friday night. In Beck’s usual ‘put my foot in it’ attitude, she remarked jokingly (according to her) “I hope you’re not going to propose to me tonight”, which was something she would often say in jest. Sam then decided to postpone dinner and re-group. 3 weeks later, Sam booked dinner again, this time on a Saturday night, with other activities planned for the day leading up. The plan was to then come home after dinner to our newly built house where Sam would propose. Things did not go to plan. On the Friday night, we were both in bed, Sam contemplating the day to come with excitement and anticipation. Beck (who had clearly not picked up on the hints) was about to embark on yet again her usual ‘put my foot in it’ attitude and AGAIN remarked “I hope you are not going to propose to me tomorrow night”. Beck quickly realised with Sam’s blank expression and quietness that she had managed to indeed put her foot in it. Sam felt frustrated and disappointed at first, but once we realised that we did in fact want the same thing (Beck just has a weird way of showing it), we became very excited about getting engaged. We then proceeded spontaneously to go to Sam’s parent’s house in our pyjamas (where the ring was stored) at 1am. Sam then got down on one knee, said some really nice things, proposed, and Beck FINALLY said yes.”

Of their photographer, they note, “Josh is part of our family, are we are very familiar with his work and love his unique style of photography. He is very talented, thorough, and made the whole experience comfortable for us. Both Josh and us have a love for the location of the shoot (Petrol Cove, Victor Harbor), and we had a lot of fun doing it!”
