Baby Blue Lolly Buffet

by | Bride, Reception


I never get tired of pretty tablescapes – I always find something to draw from them as inspiration! The lovely Alicia from Form Over Function recently styled a gorgeous set of ten tables for the Centennial Parklands Dining Bridal Open Night. There are so many beautiful colour ways, decor designs and delicious looking tables that I thought we’d split them up over a few entries.

Today we’re starting with the baby blue lolly buffet! I love the hues of blue styled around the invitation (also by Form Over Function)  and stunning blue and white floral cake! All styling by Form Over Function, cake by Cake Occasions and cookies by Polka Dot Cookies.

The key with this buffet and really any buffet is to vary the heights- I love how the Form over Function team made use of cake platters and tiered cake stands to stack  the goodies high. Adding the cream lollies keeps the buffet looking elegant. (Plus it gives you a few more choices if you choose a distinct colour like blue).

I am a sucker for matching invitations to the cake and I love how the duck egg blue of the invitations was styled into the icing. So pretty!

Check back this afternoon for the first two of the Form Over Function reception tablescapes!

Lisa Brown

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


My cousin got engaged a few weeks ago. My cousin is elegant, she’s sure of herself and she’s stunning. I must admit I’ve been imagining her wedding dress, the past few days I envisage something modern with a bit of a boho edge, to suit her gorgeous, short, dark curls. Something a little laid-back, but beautiful (like her).

These frocks from designer Lisa Brown would make perfect wedding gowns don’t you think? The collection “Free Spirit” is slightly boho, relaxed and beautifully elegant. Perfect for a beach bride, a spring garden or a wedding followed by a game of bare feet!

Lisa’s design motto is “individual, feminine and feel as beautiful on the skin as they look on the body”. I love how comfortable her gowns seem. For a relaxed wedding? comfort is key!

Snaphot Sunday – Many Roads Ahead

by | Bride, Snapshot Sundays


This photo by Ben Adams reminds me of me, it’s what I would have done at that age (Mother Polka, after showing her this photo told me I would have been closer). So many roads ahead, so many dreams waiting to come true.

Janelle and Bryan Engaged

by | Bride, Engagements, International


Today’s session is so full of beautiful colour and life! All the way from North Carolina, it’s the engagement session of Janelle and Bryan- two school teachers! Bryan proposed to Janelle with a treasure hunt that led to her two favourite things- skittles and diet Sundrop…and an engagement ring!

Naturally, the couple payed homage to their lifestyle by setting up school desks at the Carrigan Farm apple orchards. There was also a nod to the proposal!

Photos today are by Sassyfras Studios, have a lovely weekend!
