Eleni and Simon – The Photos

by | Australia - Western Australia, Bride, Inspired Weddings,


I love the elegant and simple nature of Eleni and Simon’s wedding. It’s simply beautiful!


The couple used the local bowling club and a nearby vineyard for photographs. Eleni’s mother made the bridesmaids’ multi coloured gowns.


Beautiful reception shots coming up next!

Eleni & Simon

We’re upping our count of inspired weddings¬† because we have so many beautiful ones to show you!

Today’s inspired wedding took place in Western Australia. Eleni and Simon met in Greece during a student trip and a few years later they got together. It wasn’t for another seven and half years that they got married!

Simon lent his hand and created all of the invitations, place cards and thank you notes for the wedding. Eleni’s mother made the bridesmaid’s gowns while Eleni and her bridesmaids and mother put together the wedding favors.

Photographs today are by Jen of Anna Rose Photography with Natasja Kremers of NK Photography second shooting.


Eleni’s gown was from Mariana Hardwick Couture. Rebecca Grace at Natural Art Flowers created the bouquets.


Eleni and Simon were married in a traditional Greek ceremony at the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation in Perth. The church was a special place to the couple as it was where Eleni was baptised and went to Greek school.

Check back soon- today’s wedding is in three parts!

Jo Durkin

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


Sydney couture design Jo Durkin has a sense of Hollywood glamour to her designs. With a background in mainstream fashion, Jo turned her attention to detail to the bridal world and creates stunning bridal gowns.

With clean, simple lines the gowns really show off the wearer’s figure – in a beautifully sexy way while still capturing that bridal elegance. Jo uses minimal detailing- beads cascading off the shoulders, a simple ruched bodice or a simple tie around the waist to add that little extra touch to her creations.

Snapshot Sunday – Flower In Her Hair

by | Bride, Photography, Snapshot Sundays


This is just one of those photos that makes me happy. It’s iconic to me because well, it’s one of the images I’ve seen constantly throughout my time as a blogger and one I’ve come to adore. It’s from the wedding of Lisa and Nick, originally seen in Martha Stewart Weddings. The bride does gorgeous paper goods too!
