I think this photo of sisters, young and old (er) on Nadi’s wedding day (see more here) captured by Xiss Photography is something pretty special. It’s a little reminder of how time can pass by so quickly.

Sydney photographer Angelica Peady sent over this bridal shoot she did. I love the sultry, vintage feel to the shots! These were taken at Tebbutts Observatory in Windsor, New South Wales.

Have a wonderful Saturday!

mint green text Creative Colour Mint Green

Mint green is a soft pale green with a touch of blue – fresh and pretty, or icy and cool – such is its versatility.

Combine with black and white

-       With ivory and lavender (with a hint of blue)

-       With ivory and soft sky blue

-       With soft pink and white

-       With milk chocolate and ivory

-       With apricot, deeper coral and cream

-       With dark chocolate and cream

-       With navy and darker mint, and ivory

-       Enhance the colour by using subtle metallic finishes on your invitations, place cards, menus etc

-       In the winter, icicles, snowflakes hung on white painted branches, mint green and clear crystal beading to create a subtle shine, long sleeves, fairy lights inside and outside for a winter wonderland, a horse drawn carriage with tinkling bells on the horses’ harnesses, crystals, felt and velvet fabrics, glittering crystal and pearl hair pieces and jewelery

-       Crystals, silver, platinum, stainless steel

-       In summer – various shades of white in furniture, pearly sea shells, starfish, sea urchins, coral, crockery, flowers – pure white roses or orchids and soft grey leaves, candles, mint cocktails or mint juleps, muslin drapes, paper parasols, white lanterns, capiz shell ‘chandeliers’

-       Mint flavoured chocolate, mint leaf lollies, humbugs, choc mint flavoured lollies, jelly beans, choc mint ice cream, grasshopper pie, peppermint hot chocolate

-       Privet berries, grey leaves such as dusty miller, white blooms, Singapore orchids, hypericum berries, coral roses, tulips, poppies – the flowers you use will depend on the colours you choose for your scheme

-       Soft grey or string coloured outfits for the men. Pick up the mint colour in ties, socks, pocket squares. Black suits if using the black and white combination

-       Make a feature of unusual ribbons and beautiful lace in napkin ties, edging on cloths, paper ware such as your table numbers, seating cards, menus, favour box embellishment, as part of the cake design, on garlands, as the hangers for lanterns

-       Use paper punches to create decorative edging on your felt or paper accessories

-       Hang multiple strings of mint green, blue and clear beads from the ceiling for a feeling of being in an underwater cave, or drape them in amongst candles, candelabra, or along the edges of cloths
