I love this touching moment between Amy and her mother at her wedding to Ana. (See more here) There is nothing like the warmth of a mother’s hug. Captured by Leigh Miller Photography.

Vera Wang Spring Collection 2009

One of the most inspired collections to come out of the latest Spring 2009 bridal fashion shows was Vera Wang. Beautiful colours- greens, gun metal greys and copper. I love the deconstructed look that has such an attention to detail with the bows and way the fabric falls.

I got the sweetest email from Dawn about her twin sister Di’s wedding invitations. Di and her fiance Raphael lived in Melbourne for many years but will marry in Singapore. Di and her husband are both teachers which inspired the school themed invitations. After playing around with ideas, the couple decided on an exercise book style.

I love seeing heartfelt projects that are really personal to the couple! As school teachers, I think these invitations would have been a hit with Di and Raphael’s guests!
