I thought I might try something a little different for you today- I have two deliciously gorgeous Australian weddings to show you over four mini posts! First up, we’re visiting Perth with Jasmine and Louis.
Jasmine and Louis are expats of Australia who both grew up in Perth, they now live in the Cayman Islands but wanted a celebration that all of their family and friends could attend.
Jasmine chose a stunning gown and her bridesmaids rocked it in their slimline frocks with bold, gorgeous necklaces! The ceremony was held at the University of Western Australia (UWA) Sunken Gardens.
The wedding was captured by photographers Dave and Charlotte. Dave is originally from Australia but has been living in Canada for the past seven years. He and Charlotte flew to Perth to shoot the wedding.
Just married! Check back soon for the second part of the wedding of Jasmine and Louis, including an incredible reception venue!

One of the most important things you can do while wedding planning is spending quality one on one time with your other half.
Going on a date and having a great time together without worrying about how Great Aunt Alice is going to get from one venue to another can give you the respite that you may so desperately need.
While wedding costs may be squeezing your hip pocket, the imagination of a great idea for your date need not come from yo- I’ve found two great sites that can give you plenty of ideas!
$30 Date Night is based around the idea of your date not costing more than $30, there are Australian based ideas but also worldwide ideas.
Users of the site can rate different date ideas and submit their own. Developed by Melbourne newlyweds Emma and Denis, the site also has a blog, where Emma and Denis share their own tips and a fornghtly email newsletter with ideas straight to your inbox.
Tomorrow’s Date is a Sydney based website with a plethora of inspired ideas for your date night.
The site has a newsletter delivered weekly, blogs and even sells a “Date Deck” a card deck with 52 date ideas to carry with you. As a member of the site, you can share your own discoveries, add photos, ask the “Date Panel” questions and allows you to access the date ideas from your Iphone or Blackberry.
I spotted the stunning work of Spanish designer Jorge Terra on Casando Ideias (who has some fantastic Spanish fashion show coverage here).
The spring 2010 collection is so full of beautiful colours, crisp whites and lovely detailing.
Jorge Terra is just the thing for a gloomy Monday!
