I recently spotted these beautiful gowns on All Things Bright & Beautiful recently and had to share.
Such beautiful old world glamour! Pierre Balmain was a French designer who founded Mason Balmain in 1942. With a background in architecture, he believed “dressmaking is the architecture of movement”.
You can read more about the stunning designer on All Things Bright & Beautiful (another of my must reads, lost of gorgeous things to admire!)
I think the above would make a stunning wedding gown!

Sydney bride Sarah emailed me last month on the hunt for a barn.
Barn from Saltwater Farm Barn
She had come across this photo and was desperate to find something similar in NSW. Never one to turn down a challenge I searched high and low for an Aussie version of the barn to meet Sarah’s requirements (close to Sydney, allows caterers in, allows own styling etc).
In the search I did find many gorgeous venues, so hopefully one of them will suit Sarah (and hopefully she’s found and booked one by now!)
But in keeping with Sarah’s relaxed barn style look, I created this inspiration board for her. A rustic barn wedding with a touch of glamour.

Victorian winery Foxey’s Hangout has introduced a service which will truly add a personal touch to your wedding!
Foxey’s Hangout sparkling creations
Foxey’s Hangout was started in 1997 by two brothers, Michael and Tony and is located on Victoria’s beautiful Mornington Peninsula in Red Hill. Michael and Tony have a background in fine dining and eateries having once owned Melbourne’s Les Halles and Garcon.
Michael and Tony at Foxey’s Hangout
Every weekend, the team at Foxey’s Hangout hold wine sessions where you’re able to create your own special blend of sparkling wine. Starting with research (i.e tasting) you pick your dosage (a mixture of sugar syrup and wine) and then select your bases (pinots, chardonnay’s and more).
Tasting and mixing until your get your mixture right, you’ll be able to create your perfect blend. At this point Foxey’s Hangout will record your wine so they can recreate it for delivery.
Nothing better than toasting with bubbles you mixed yourself!
