Sterry and Jacob’s Atlanta Engagement Shoot

by | Bride, Engagements


Sterry and Jacob

I love taking in photographs from around the world- everything is different. From the architecture, to the light, to the backgrounds. Luckily love never really changes and as we visit Atlanta, Georgia today, the atmosphere is so delightful.

Photos this fine Saturday are by Brett of Birdsong Photography. Brett is always working to improve his craft and try new things, today’s shoot is full of warm golden light, it’s hard to believe it wasn’t in Summer!

A Peaches and Glimmer Wedding

by | Bride, Inspiration Boards


I adore the colour combination of peaches, creams and soft golds. There’s something so elegant about the soft gold with cream- it’s classic. Adding in the peach brings an old world charm and a freshness while the gold sequins? Well they’re a modern twist, a touch of fun and shot of celebration!

JetStar Wedding of Tanya Simon Wesley. Photo by Ben Macmahon

For something light for our Friday morning- have you ever thought about getting married ON a plane? Simon and Tanya did! A wild, impulsive idea turned into the couple to contact Jetstar and arrange a surprise wedding for their 60 guests- who had no idea of the venue until they showed up! Their guests boarded a plane and said their vows at 30,000 feet! Throwing an aviation twist on the day, they threw a casual reception in Sydney airport,topped their  wedding cake with an aeroplane and guests received luggage locks as bonbonnieres.

You can watch their wedding video here.
