Amy & Sam’s Spring Ewingsdale Hall Wedding

by | Australia - New South Wales, Bride, Inspired Weddings,


Spring Ewingsdale Hall Wedding057

Amy & Sam

The gorgeous romance of Amy & Sam’s Spring Ewingsdale Hall wedding is palpable. From the groom’s face as he sees his bride walk towards him, the gorgeous sunset portraits to the beautifully decorated reception. Amy and Sam chose Camilla Kirk Photography to capture their wedding day.

On how they met, Amy tells, “Despite both growing up in a small country town, Sam and I did not meet until we were both living in Brisbane for work and university! We met through mutual friends.”

Amy chose a Demetrios gown from Rosa + Mary’s Bridal Shop, noting, “It took me a long time to find my wedding dress – I knew I wanted a dress with some sort of a sleeve and back detail. I tried on lots and LOTS of dresses to no avail. I kept reading in bridal magazines that a lot of bride’s perfect dress was the first one they tried on!

I tried on my Demetrios gown from Rosa and Mary’s bridal shop in Varsity Lakes and knew it was the one. It is form fitting and entirely embellished with Venice lace. I loved the flattering V-neckline and the sheer lace back with the row of buttons. It has a nude underlay with an ivory overlay which means that the intricate embellishments stand out just perfectly – it wouldn’t be the same without the nude underneath! It has a classic, yet slightly vintage feel and I felt so comfortable in it all day.”

The couple kicked off their day with The Magic Bus, noting, “The party vibe was definitely established early with our guests being picked up in a double decker Red Love Bus, which would take them to the wedding and back into Byron once the night was over. The bus driver was even a highlight in his 70’s style suit and long hair, not to mention the funky music playing – very Byron Bay!”

Of her walk down the aisle, Amy remembers ,”Our good friend Ryan Martin was our musician on the day and he did a cover of James Bay’s ‘Hold Back The River’.”

Amy and Sam chose Byron Bay venue Ewingsdale Hall for their wedding, thanks to their wedding planner The Events Lounge noting, “I had an initial meeting with The Events Lounge to see how their on the day co-ordination service would tie in with our wedding plans. Rachel listened to my criteria for our ideal venue and suggested the Ewingsdale Hall just outside of Byron Bay. Sam and I went down for a look and instantly fell in love. We adored the huge fig trees that line the road, the light, blank canvas of the hall inside and the ample grass areas with beautiful green surrounds. Being able to hold both the ceremony and reception in the one place was also a big plus for us. We decided straight away that it was perfect and made a booking.”

Randa Karzon officiated the ceremony, Amy noting, “Both Sam and I are Catholic, so despite us choosing to have our ceremony outside, we still wanted it to feel fairly traditional. My cousin Sophie performed a reading from the Bible during our ceremony. We both wrote our own vows and read them out to each other for the first time on the actual day.

My aunty and uncle were married on the same day as us 27 years ago, the same cross that she had tied around her bouquet on her wedding day, was used as my ‘something borrowed’ to tie around my bouquet on the day. Our celebrant Randa was also one of my lecturers from college.”

Of their photographer, Amy remembers, “Camilla our photographer was an absolute star! From traveling to the venue the week before and traipsing through paddocks to find the best location for us, to always being more than happy to help with any queries we had. She was extremely easy to work with, very organised and both Sam and I felt so comfortable in her presence. Our second shooter Chris was also terrific! We couldn’t have been happier!”

“Our entire wedding was very family orientated, and to me they were the most special details of the day . My aunty making the wedding cake to a traditional family recipe, great aunts arranging all the table flowers, my cousin the MC, family members making finger food for guests to enjoy while we were off having photos taken, family members helping to set up and pack down the venue, my uncle who works for an alcohol company organising the alcohol and bar set up, family members helping with DIY elements (e.g. stepdad making our wedding arch), my dad’s cherished Holden Monaro as the bridal car, we also had all of our siblings in our bridal party (my sister as maid of honour, Sam’s sister as one of my bridesmaids and Sam’s brother as his best man).”

Guests each received a jar of honey, the bride remembering, “The week before we poured honey into 103 little glass jars for our favours – a messy job to say the least but they looked fantastic on the tables with their golden glow.”

Spring Ewingsdale Hall Wedding041

Sam (groom) made a gorgeous wooden box with lid and lock for guest cards to go into at reception. He also carved out our initials for the front. We now keep all our wedding keepsakes in it.”

Of their first dance, Amy remembers, “We chose a cover – Coldplay’s ‘Magic’. Sam and I didn’t give the first dance much thought as we both consider ourselves fairly good dancers on a dancefloor,however formal dancing is a whole other thing! We just held each other and rocked back and forth really! There was lots of laughing!

When it was time for the bridal party to join us we were missing two groomsmen (they were apparently in the bathroom) so the other two groomsmen had to dance with 2 bridesmaids each. Later my mum said to me that my 82 year old Grandpa leaned across to her during our first dance and whispered ‘they have no idea how to dance do they?’ ”

Sarah & Lachlan’s Romantic Wollombi Wedding

by | Australia - New South Wales, Bride, Inspired Weddings,


Romantic Wollombi Wedding041

Sarah & Lachlan

Sarah and Lachlan chose an amazing outdoor venue for their romantic Wollombi wedding. The magic space allowed them to marry in front of vineyards, and dine outside amongst the trees – just as the bride had always dreamed! It was magically captured by James Goff Photography.

Sarah and Lachlan delve into the story of how they came to be. “We met for the very first time at a beginning of 1st semester BBQ, although there were heaps of people there and Lachy doesn’t exactly remember meeting Sarah there, he does definitely however remember meeting her about a week later at the church she went to and he’d just started going to.

We hit it off pretty quickly and managed to spend a lot of time together when we ended up being in a class together at uni even though our degrees are totally different. Sarah would always arrive to class about 10 minutes late because she came straight from her job babysitting, and always found a seat next to Lachy where he saved her one, weekly, without fail.

We spent time together studying with friends as well as at the Bible study we both went to, we started spending more time together outside of these things too and about 6 months after we became friends, Lachy asked Sarah to date him!”

Sarah chose a Lisa Brown gown from Soul Sisters noting, “After heading to a bridal store with my mum and looking around a lot online, I decided I loved a lot of the dresses I’d tried on but really wanted something a bit different. I ended up deciding I wanted a wedding dress that wasn’t actually a wedding dress.

I found my Lisa Brown gown at Soul Sisters, a boutique in Fremantle, WA. The girls who helped me there were so wonderful and encouraging and even got me a veil to try on with the dress so that I could get a feel for what it would look like styled in a more bridal fashion. My mum and dad were both able to see the dress before I bought it, which was great, and I loved that they loved it too. The one thing I really wanted that was missing was a train, lucky for me I was able to find the same fabric and Lachy’s aunty is very talented and was able to make me a gorgeous detachable train to wear for the ceremony and photos. It was great to be able to take it off for the reception for dancing too. Between getting the dress and the wedding, I had a couple of doubts but I was so glad that it was the dress I went with and I was so comfortable on the day.”

Sarah walked down the aisle to “Bloom” by The Paper Kites.

Romantic Wollombi Wedding025

“The moment we saw each other for the first time meant so much to both of us, and all the wedding nerves just disappeared. It was such an incredible moment knowing that soon we would be husband and wife and that that day was the start of our lives together. The whole ceremony was a wonderful celebration of love. Everything was just so much fun! We had a great time off with our bridal party having photos and with all our friends and family at the reception.”

Romantic Wollombi Wedding027

Sarah and Lachlan chose Stonehurst Cedar Creek for their wedding, remarking, “Stonehurst was the second venue we visited together. Lachy had found it online and it just looked amazing. We toured the property with Maddy, the event coordinator and just fell in love with it. It’s such a stunning place, the vines, the cottages, and the incredible rows of trees at the spot we chose for our reception. It fitted everything we wanted. I’ve always dreamed of an outdoor ceremony and reception and Stonehurst was incredibly perfect for all of it.

We loved that we could have the whole wedding in one place, and that there was accommodation so that all our family could stay there for the wedding weekend. After we saw Stonehurst, we looked at a couple of other places but nothing came close so we decided to go for it and book our wedding there.”

Romantic Wollombi Wedding029

Friend Reverend Danny Morris officiated the ceremony. “We’re Christians, and so we really wanted a day that wasn’t just about us and the love we have for each other but focused on the love God has for us and how we want to live our lives in response to that. At the ceremony we had some worship songs and a talk from the Bible, two of our siblings prayed for us as well which was really special. Saying our vows to each other was an incredibly special part of the ceremony, filled with so much excitement!

We had an outdoor ceremony which was beautiful, although it was a pretty hot day in the sun. It was wonderful to have all our family and friends there witnessing us make such a special commitment to each other. We had two readings from the Bible: My brother read for us 2 Corinthians 5:14-6:2. We also had Lachlan’s sister read Revelation 21:1-4.”

“One of the really special things for me was that I had a ring from each of my grandmothers on my necklace and that my train was made by Lachy’s aunty. We both love family so much and to have that incorporated into so many aspects of our wedding including what we wore was really special. Our family was so helpful and involved in lots of little details.”

“I loved the bridal party styling, picking different dresses for each of my bridesmaids was a great decision and they all loved their dresses. I definitely wanted flower crowns (which ended up being leaf crowns) the flowers and flower crowns suited the wedding styling perfectly and the groomsmen looked great. I also loved what I chose for my dress and accessories and Lachy’s suit being a different colour to the groomsmen’s pants. It was fun for everyone to be a bit different and it made us all most comfortable on the day.”

The outdoor reception had a relaxed vibe, Sarah explaining, “We’re also so so glad we went for an outdoor reception and hired Mrs Piggy’s Wheels , it meant the night we had was so much fun and chilled out. Mrs Piggy’s Wheels and Hello Naomi who catered the dinner and desert were also great in making sure to fit our vision for the day and delivered the most delicious food!

One of our favorite parts of wedding planning was each time we made a decision on something and it was exactly what we were looking for, especially when we found Mrs Piggys Wheels and booked the location, they were two stand out points when we felt like everything was coming together.”

Romantic Wollombi Wedding070

Romantic Wollombi Wedding071

“I decided to make the flower crowns for myself and the bridesmaids, as well as the bouquets which was great and I loved being able to have my touch on the floral arrangements. Lachy made the signs for the ceremony and reception from old pallets, which was great. We delegated some DIY projects to family and friends as well.”

Of their photographer, Sarah remembers, “Our photographer James was incredible, we couldn’t have asked for a better photography experience, we had so much fun with the photos and James made us incredibly relaxed and comfortable. The photos turned out beautifully and we couldn’t be happier. The first time we met up with James he showed us some of his past weddings which were all incredible, and chatted about the style in which he shoots. He does incredible candid work which we loved as it really captured our wedding as it was, not in a posed way.”

Of their first dance, Sarah remembers, “We danced to “Perth” by Bon Iver, which we chose not only because we love the song but because I (Sarah) moved to Newcastle from Perth to start uni. We loved our first dance as it was a special moment between us. I particularly enjoyed it because I love dancing but Lachy tends to shy away from it, so it was really special for me to have that first dance as husband and wife together knowing that he was mostly doing it for me because he knew how much I would love it. Although the more I manage to get him to dance the more he seems to enjoy it.”

Monica & James’ Surprise Melbourne Wedding

by | Australia - Victoria, Bride, Inspired Weddings,


Surprise Melbourne Wedding067

Monica & James

Surprise weddings seem to be popping up everywhere lately and I can’t say I’m unhappy about it. Not only do I love a good wedding, but the faces of guests who are surprised by the seemingly impromptu nuptials? How could that be anything else than amazing? Monica and James surprised guests at their farewell party and chose Chloe May to capture it.

Monica kicks us off with the story of how she and James met. “We met in Beijing, in January 2011. James worked there as a sound engineer while I was there for a short, 2 month internship only. Plans however changed after I met James in a bar. He and I both joined the weekly meeting (in that particular bar) of the so called couch surfing community in Beijing. It may sound cliché but I did fall in love with James the moment he entered.

After that night, some Facebook stalking and more meetings at bars we both started dating. It was a bit difficult because I initially only planned to stay in Beijing until end of February but I couldn’t leave my new boyfriend behind so I found myself another job and used this as an ‘excuse’ to stay in China and with James. Seems like it was a good idea.”

Surprise Melbourne Wedding005Surprise Melbourne Wedding006

Monica chose a wedding gown from Grace Loves Lace , remarking “I started with Pinterest some time before I got engaged. I was looking for inspiration for a wedding cake. My friend was getting married and had asked me to make hers. Anyway, clever as Pinterest is, it started suggesting all sorts of wedding related photos. One was the dress, my dress and because I loved it so much I saved that pin. When my time came I remembered that pin and found out the designer is in Queensland. Coincidentally I was sent there for work so I thought I’ll just grab it. I popped in during my lunch break. Tried it on. It was very beautiful, simple but special. So I bought it.”

Surprise Melbourne Wedding007

Surprise Melbourne Wedding010

Surprise Melbourne Wedding017Surprise Melbourne Wedding018

Monica remembers, “We wanted to have a simple and easy wedding without social pressure, norms and expectations. We decided on a surprise wedding where all our friends thought they were coming to our farewell party. It was hard keeping the secret for so long but it was totally worth it.”

Surprise Melbourne Wedding019

Surprise Melbourne Wedding021

The couple chose The Boatbuilders Yard  for their farewell party turned wedding, noting, “We were after a venue that does not give our surprise away at first sight. James initially said we could just get married in a pub but then I wanted something nicer than just the pub around the corner. The Boatbuilders Yard was perfect. Great location with Melbourne backdrop, they provided us with catering, drinks, waiters and sound system. That made things very easy for us. And none of the guests had a clue. Another important factor was the closing time as we did also want to have a little boogie and a party of course.

The Boatbuilders was one of the few places that let us stay until midnight, quite surprising actually that so many locations want you out at 9 or 10 p.m. We both would like to say how happy we were with our choice. The support of the staff before, during and after the wedding was absolutely amazing. I’d pick that venue again without any hesitation.”

Surprise Melbourne Wedding022

Surprise Melbourne Wedding023

“My dad walked me towards James/ down the aisle. First I was only looking at our friends to see what their reaction was, then I looked in front and as soon as I saw James my memory is blurred. I was drawn to him like to a magnet. I can’t even remember when I let go of my dad but all that mattered was James and that I wanted to be there with him.”

Surprise Melbourne Wedding024Surprise Melbourne Wedding025

For her walk down the aisle, Monica and James chose “Bob Marley ‘Is This Love’. The morning of the wedding we still hadn’t decided on our song. We were in a cafe having breakfast when James asked “so, we still need to decide on the song…”, and coincidentally they played that song. I said we should just use that. It’s classic and chances are high we hear it somewhere from time to time and it will remind us of our wedding.”

Surprise Melbourne Wedding026

Surprise Melbourne Wedding027

“When I walked down the ‘aisle’ everyone was truly happy and surprised. During the ceremony there were quite some tears of joy…so many people came up to us saying they never cry at weddings but they had to at ours. I think this was because no one expected the surprise and their emotions were stronger? Maybe we should ask a psychologist! It was beautiful to see our friends so truly happy for us and the focus was on having a great time and celebrating our bond.”

Anthony Cribbes officiated the ceremony, the bride remembering, “As it was a surprise we obviously wanted everyone to be surprised and blown away. The ceremony was the main part where people had to digest the surprise and find out all about how we got engaged etc. The celebrant played a very important part. He talked everyone through how we met, fell in love and how we got to the wedding.

The feeling of the ceremony should be easy, relaxed, a bit of fun but of course also the seriousness such an occasion brings. Especially when we got to the vows it was very intimate and romantic. The celebrant Anthony had a good idea that we repeat each line after him. That way friends could hear him saying it, but we could look at each other and say it in a normal voice/ tone, without worrying that others can hear us.”

Surprise Melbourne Wedding050

Surprise Melbourne Wedding052

Surprise Melbourne Wedding053Surprise Melbourne Wedding058

“I was thinking a lot about decoration and DIY details. Sometimes I was stressing out about it because I couldn’t decide what I wanted and it could also not be too much as people would have expected something the moment they would enter the venue and this would have spoilt our surprise. Whenever I panicked or stressed James always calmed me down by reminding me that our wedding should not be about decoration, flowers, etc but about us, our love and the decision that we want to spend the rest of our days together and grow old together. That always put things back into perspective and I think it also summarises the theme of the whole night very well.”

Of their photographer, Monica remarks, “Chloe, she was recommended by a friend of a friend. She is just fantastic, warm, friendly and obviously the most important thing; her shots are great! She also made us feel so comfortable when taken the more intimate photos (hugging and kissing). I was a bit nervous beforehand and thought it might feel awkward but she had a great way making us feel relaxed and comfortable.”

Monica remembers, “I forgot the dress at home. We got ready at home with my family (they knew about the surprise and came from Austria and Romania for the occasion). Anyway, we left a bit in a rush. It had started to rain and we needed a couple of taxis, we didn’t have enough Uber apps and so on. James left in the first taxi, I was 10min behind him, my mum came in the last one.

While I was walking in the rain to the venue I realised I did not bring my wedding dress. I called James but he had no clue either. My hopes were with my mum but unfortunately she didn’t bring it either. Thankfully we had time until the ceremony and my mum sacrificed herself to go back and get it. All this while it was raining. But she made it on time (had to change into her flip flops to run faster, ruined her hair, got soaked and missed out on appetisers) and all went well. Thanks mum.”

The Mrs Box Spring 2016 Collection

by | Accessories, Bride, Jewellery


The Mrs Box Ring Boxes

I’ve always been a big fan of the gorgeous ring boxes from The Mrs Box and when I saw their Spring collection shoot underway, with plenty of glorious flowers, I couldn’t wait to share it!

I love the sense of vintage style with these boxes. Each is handmade out of shimmering velvet – the limited edition colours only producing a few boxes per collection. Pale mint greens, to deep marsala reds. Soft candy pinks to buttercup bright yellows.

The Mrs Box has come such a long way from their beautiful beginnings two years ago. Each season new beautiful colours are released, monograms now in not only in the classic block font (know as The Highbourn Block), but also the addition of a lowercase calligraphy font (The Laurelle) and an uppercase script font (The Ashby) in your choice of glinting metallic tones.

I am all for the vintage charm of yesteryear, and something about The Mrs Box brings that to life so beautifully. The boxes are available via their website and ship worldwide.
