Fiona and Shane’s Vintage Inspired Engagement Photos

by | Bride, Engagements


Fiona and Shane

Happy Saturday! Feel like a bit of fun in the sun? How about this delightful engagement shoot of Fiona and Shane by Gemma Clarke Photography? Fiona shared the story of how she and Shane met and fell in love. “Fiona and Shane met almost eight years ago during agency life in Ultimo and with a sharing love of creativity and science fiction, they instantly fell in love.” Shane adores Fiona’s quirky tendencies and independent spirit and Fiona loves Shane’s passion for design and always looking at things from a different perspective. Shane proposed over drinks at the New York Bar atop the 52nd floor of the Park Hyatt in Tokyo, taking Fiona completely by surprise and following with a booking at the Michelin star Ryugin restaurant whereby the head chef personally came out to congratulate them. A vintage picnic theme for their engagement session seemed fitting as they love to take their new puppy, Willow, outdoors and relax over good food and wine and liver treats. Their upcoming wedding in April, almost entirely pulled together with the wonderful vendors at, will be an intimate vintage garden affair with close family and friends in Sydney and their beloved red velvet wedding cake!

I love it when a bride accessories her wedding gown with a really bold piece of jewellery so I really love these bright and bold necklaces from brand Elva Fields.

Designer Emily has a passion for the history of jewellery and her Spring 2011 collection is filled with vintage elements that she has sought from all over the world (including necklaces made entirely from recycled pieces) Tthe bold, punchy colours could be just the right statement for your wedding gown (or even your bridesmaids!).If you can’t find your perfect piece, they’ll will work with you to create it!

Elva Fields ships to Australia, visit her website for more information.

Easter Blessings

by | Blog News, Bride


I’ve decided to take the day off from our traditional Friday roundup- it will be back next week!

Instead, from our wonderful team (who are busy celebrating weddings, making beautiful Greek Easter decorations (silk dyed Easter eggs, yes that member is my hero too!) and enjoying the lovely views of Tumbling Waters Retreat and sleeping… pick me out of that one!) I wish you and your families a wonderful Easter and a safe and happy long weekend!

We’ll still be here posting away, if a little lighter than usual and we’ll be back in full force on Tuesday with plenty of royal wedding goodness!

Ps Don’t forget if you entered the Infinity Photography competition to check out this important notice
