Liz and Dan
Let’s kick off our Friday with a lovely relaxed celebration! The lovely Hailey of You Can’t Be Serious Photography sent this over to us and I thought it was a perfectly delicious looking wedding when all most of us want to do right now is kick back and relax- just the style of today’s wedding!
Liz and Dan met at university while studying graphic design They decided on a casual wedding celebration – they didn’t worry about how many and family and friends to invite, they just invited them all!
Prior to the ceremony, Liz and Dan met up for some green garden photos in Surrey Hills.
Liz had her bouquet made by her friend’s mother. She wore a dip dyed dress from Nicolangela and shoes from Diana Ferrari. Dan wore a pin stripe shirt from Country Road with pants from Myer. His shoes were from Satch.
Liz walked down the aisle to “Iron and Wine” by Peng 33.
Liz and Dan held their ceremony and reception at the Mentone Life Saving Club in Melbourne. Liz’s ring was made by a Dutch artist while Dan and Liz were living in Holland (this is where they got engaged). Dan’s ring was made by an old school friend.
Check back this afternoon for the fun reception!

I love a bride in colour- I think today’s bride Elizabeth pulled off this absolutely gorgeous red dress so beautifully that I had to share it with you!
Nerida McMurray sent over these stunning photographs while the bride Elizabeth tells me the gown was made by Chantilly International (03 (03) 9639 7400) in Melbourne who saved the day after Elizabeth’s original dress retailer went into administration.
Floor length red gowns can be tricky to pull off, but can be such a stunning statement when done well. I love that the choice of a red gown can look dramatic with red lips or a little more understated with a paired back makeup look. Of course the different shades of red mean there’s one that can radiate on any skin colour. Are you wearing red on your wedding day?

To celebrate the launch of the spring issue Eco Beautiful Weddings and my collaboration with Tea Lily Photography, Trish offered up two gorgeous shoots to share with you! The first is this romantic, engagement shoot of Ray & Irene in Sydney. I love the soft dreamy captures and the row boats- such a sense of nostalgia!
