Elvi Design is always a winner when it comes to finding beautifully romantic, feminine wedding gowns and the brand new 2015 collection “Bloom and Revel” not only continues in the theme of the romantic and the beautiful but also celebrates the diversity of designer Sandra’s clientele.  Each gown is made to measure, carefully crafted in Elvi Design’s Perth studio to fit its wearer perfectly. Each gown is made using only the most beautiful of fabrics that Sandra and her mother source themselves.

Released in two parts, part one (Bloom) was created with the bohemian bride in mind. This part is all about whimsical shapes, softly draped fabrics, sweet floral detailing and easy to wear styles.These gowns are as at home on a beach with bare feet in the sand as they are in a gorgeous garden setting, a forest or by the water. The gowns have a sense of ease about them – each designed to reflect the mood of an easy going wedding.

Part two (Revel) is more traditional featuring figure enhancing gowns, beautiful lace work and beading and more structure. Illusion necklines are paired with long lace sleeves, sparkling beaded belts, a line skirts and long flowing trains. This collection is for the bride who loves a classic look without comprising on showing her own personality.

Together with photographer Christine Lim, florist Ivy Flowers, hairstylist Atelier No 25 for Hair, makeup artist Lisa for Milla Makeup and Joanne Cooper, Elvi Design visited City Farm, Perth to shoot the 2015 collection, creating Sandra’s desire contrast for showing off the detail of the gowns.

Elvi Design gowns are available to purchase from her Western Australia studio.

Your groom needs to look super smart and we have just the person to make it all happen for him.  Black Jacket Suiting is a gentlemens’ fashion boutique in Brisbane offering the highest quality in service, a wide range of product – from shoes to suits (with over 400 fabrics to choose from) and ties – and the icing on the cake? Ryan will come to you and fit you up with the perfect suit for your wedding or special occasion. And the best bit is that your measurements are kept on file, so that you can shop online with ease – it doesn’t get much better than that!

We asked Ryan of Black Jacket Suiting five questions in five minutes –

What is your favourite after five drink?

Scotch on the rocks – Chivers Regal 18yr Old.

Your favourite weekend getaway?

Gold Coast – Broadbeach. Love the night life down there as a change from the Brisbane scene.

Favourite restaurant?

Pony on Eagle Street Pier. Great Atmosphere and theme throughout as well as amazing food.

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

Eggs Benny – hollandaise sauce has to be made in house. If you’re going to do it, do it right.

Your favourite wedding story?

An old friend saw the girl of his dreams in Mykonos Greece and couldn’t manage to talk to her the whole trip as he was too shy. Finally he gathered the courage to go talk to her just before she jumped on a bus home. Got her details and once back in AUS kept in contact and convinced her to move down to Melbourne to be with him and they were eventually married last year. Just goes to show that if you never take a chance you will never know the result and miss your opportunity.

Paulina & Adam

As a lover of cold weather I fell head over heels for the engagement photos of Paulina and Adam. So darn cosy with big fluffy scarves, tights and boots. The rain soaked surroundings, the bare branches of Winter and the surprise of bright blooming tulips! Paulina and Adam chose Christine Lim to capture their September engagement shoot.

On how they met, the happy couple recall, “It was a setup by Adam’s brother and Paulina’s cousin, that took a year to come to fruition!”

Paulina and Adam note, “Paulina is Polish. In Adam’s family out of the 4 brothers, 3 are with Polish woman, not on purpose! There must be something about Polish woman that the Italian men love!”

What do they love about each other? They tell, “The yin and yang balance. Adam is of very calm and patient nature and Paulina is passionate and spontaneous.”

Adam proposed with the help of their four legged friend, the story going, “Adam proposed on our 2nd year anniversary at home, by putting the ring box in our puppy’s hands saying “Look what Arnie [puppy’s name] found?!” ”
