by | Australia - New South Wales, Bride, Inspired Wedding Films


Quincy from production company The Grindhouse sent this video he shot over to me last week and I was delighted with it. It’s the Sydney wedding of Marihuzka and Dexter and I love the vintage effects, the funky musicĀ  and the sense of fun and joy captured!

Flower Girl Gowns From The Little Dress Making Company

by | Bride, Children


I’m not sure how I stumbled upon these sweet little frocks for little girls from The Little Dress Making Company– but don’t you think they’d make the perfect little flower girl gowns? I’m especially in love with the “Shirley” gown with the bow around it’s neck and the box pleat.

Handmade clothes are so special and these dresses come straight from Melbourne. I love the thought of a flower girl wearing one of these with little ballet slippers, flowers in her hair and a sweet basket of petals. The bold graphic prints tie in with the colourful wedding choices nowadays (I love the yellow and white florals), and would work with bold tights and headbands.

Beach Wedding Inspiration

by | Bride, Inspiration Shoot, Wedding Inspiration


Kristen Ashton and Kylie Keene of Paper Fox Studio teamed up with Joanne Walsh of Posy Florist for this morning’s beach wedding inspiration shoot. I love the rich citrus tones – a contrast to the often softer colours we see at beach weddings.

Kirsten of Paper Fox Studio told me, “I’ve always wanted to shoot a beach wedding, but as yet, haven’t had a client who was having one. Laurie and Myles had their dream wedding two years ago, a beautiful golf course set up and everything they ever dreamed of. They recently welcomed baby Ruby into the world and when I was photographing her, Laurie and I got to talking about what would be her ideal shoot and she mentioned she loved her own wedding, but always fancied a beach wedding as well.

Perfect! We got together with the fabulous Jo from Posy Florist, set the “date” and made it happen.

The details were all put together to create a whimsical and fun feel to the afternoon, with a mini sweet station building on the pinks and oranges of the bouquet. It featured big glass jars of layered of jelly beans, smaller jars of rainbow-coloured boiled sweets, fluffy marshmallows and an oversized lollypop. To round it off I added a little chalkboard, which we also used in the shoot itself to write some fun messages.”

Oranges, pinks and yellows mixed with white would make such a lovely palette for a beach wedding – think of brightly coloured rugs laid on the sand, flame torches lit up on the sky, tables decorated in the fresh, fiesta colours.
