Luisa & Luke

I am so in love with the  vibe of Luisa and Luke’s modern Cell Block Theatre wedding in the heart of the city. The couple chose to celebrate their marriage as they do their life – a big cocktail party with an industrial vibe with plenty of dancing and wine and that? That sounds pretty wonderful to me. Luisa and Luke chose Liz Ham to photograph their day.

Meeting in high school, Luisa tells the story of how she and Luke first came into each other’s lives. “We met in high school. We lived across the road from one another so met at the bus stop. Given we were shy and awkward teenagers it took our mutual friend Emma to introduce us.”

Louise Alvarez created the bride’s elegant long sleeve wedding gown. Luisa telling “I had my dress made by Louise Alvarez. I’d shopped for months and couldn’t find a single thing. Everything was too ‘fluffy’ and frou-frou. I’m quite petite so it always looked like I was playing dress ups. Louise was incredible and got it perfect right from the get go. I chose a very simple v-neck dress the colour was called ‘mocha’ from memory and looked different in different lights, the point was it was not the regular ivory, which I loved.”

Luisa and Luke got ready together and before their ceremony for photos around the city, with Luisa’s dad acting as their driver. Of their photographer, Luisa notes “One of my closest friends in the world bought me a magazine  to get me in the bridal mood and I loved two particular wedding photos that were featured, turned out they were both by Liz! She was perfect. Very relaxed and did a lot of candid photos which was what we wanted, neither of us wanted many typical staged photos.”

In lieu of favours, the newlyweds asked their guests for donations to National Breast Cancer Foundation. Luisa explains “Luke lost his mother to breast cancer in 2004 and my father also lost his mother to breast cancer before I was born so instead of gifts we requested donations to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. We made sure to have a little table with a bunch of pink flowers and donation cards for people to donate on the date if they hadn’t previously and also to honour and remember those who couldn’t be with us.”

Luisa and Luke celebrated with guests at Cell Block Theatre, telling “A colleague of mine was married there and I fell in love with the venue. They’re so laid back, you have the venue for 12 hours and can literally do whatever you want. No noise restrictions either so we could have a live band. We had quite a few people coming in from out of town so being in the middle of the CBD was perfect as everyone could stay anywhere they chose and cabs or public transport was easy.”

Luisa and Luke worked with Honey Lane  to plan and style the wedding, “Our events team, Honey Lane – could not have done it without them. I never had any wedding stress or running around because it was outsourced. Best thing I could’ve done – hands down I recommend them. So many weddings I have been I can recall the little dramas and stresses; I didn’t experience any of it so it was perfect!”

Luisa walked down the aisle to “La Vie en Rose by Louis Armstrong, it has been a favourite song of mine for years.”

A friend of the couple, Andrew Robinson officiated the ceremony, Luisa remarking “We aren’t religious so we just wanted it to be super quick and simple. We had done our photos before hand and spent the day together, and hung out with our guests as they arrived so the ceremony was literally a parting of the guests down the middle of the room and whatever we had to legally say. Our friend Andrew Robinson went through high school with us and was the celebrant so made it a lot of fun.”

Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception catered by Jah Bar, Luisa remarking “Colin and his team at Jah Bar (Spanish tapas restaurant on the Northern Beaches) catered as it is our favourite restaurant and it was heaven! SO much food.”

The couple chose a classic for their first dance, the bride remembering “Our first dance was to Fly Me to the Moon by Frank Sinatra. We didn’t rehearse anything or practice as Luke injured his foot a few weeks before the wedding so was wearing a moon boot until around 3 weeks before hand. We just did a sway type motion, after a few glasses of wine we were better than a pair of ballroom dancers!(ahem.)”

The gorgeous dreamy pieces from childrenswear brand Tutu Du Monde have always captured the imagination of my childhood self and the brand new 2016 holiday collection filled with tutus, sparkles and gorgeous details are just the thing little dreams are made of.

Samantha & Craig’s Relaxed Australian Beach Wedding

Samantha & Craig

Sunrise is my favourite time of day so the idea of a wedding just after the sun comes up is my idea of something magical. Samantha and Craig’s relaxed Australian beach wedding was a surprise weekend celebration for their guests, who met at a Brisbane location before being transported together to North Stradbroke Island where the weekend celebrations unfolded. Samantha and Craig chose Bird + Boy Photography to capture their day.

Samantha and Craig told their guests “So, weddings seem to be a pretty big deal! It never seemed to matter to us, until we saw some of you get married and we experienced the happiness and excitement it brings to their family and friends. For us, two kids who squirm in the limelight, we want our wedding to be about the people we love the most. About you. You special, incredible, beautiful souls who have supported us, made us laugh, stuck with us and helped us grow! As travel addicts, we want you to have the excitement a holiday brings, as well as time to chill and relax. We would love for you to come with us, and hopefully we can provide you with our favourite travel elements: – suspense & surprise – dreaming & wondering – the unknown – letting go of control – thinking on the fly – learning new things – new experiences – adventures – finding magical places, people & things – stories & photos. We are 97.654% sure you will enjoy the journey and the surprises along the way!”

The couple started their wedding day morning with photographs, remembering “We found our photographers and celebrant through scouring blogs.  We knew the style of photos we loved and were so thrilled to support a young couple with a growing family and business! They blew us out of the water with speedy responses and were more than accommodating. Bird and Boy Photography were incredible as they had to travel to the island and be ready to go for our early morning wedding. Jerome helped us laugh and relax as we splashed in the water, tiptoed barefoot through the wetlands, scrambled up hills and balanced along the cliffs.”

The bride chose a lace dress by Spell and the Gypsy Collective with a Summerblossom flower crown and beaded barefoot sandals from Forever Soles. She tells “I love the beachy, gypsy vibe of Spell and the Gypsy collective. I saw the dress on their Instagram before it was released but thought it might be too casual. I went to a couple of bridal stores and found very simple dresses, but nothing really had the lacy, flowy style I wanted. I eventually decided that I loved it, even if it was casual. When I got around to buying it, it was sold out in Australia and I had to buy it from the USA. It arrived the morning I was going in for laser eye surgery. So it was a speedy try-on and decision before I wouldn’t be able to see properly for a week!”

Guests were welcomed to the ceremony with coffee by Half Lever Espresso, Sam noting “We found Half Lever Espresso through extensive Googling – Melbournians love their coffee and when combined with a morning ceremony, the expectations were high! Tim was wonderful and his coffee was a big hit! The decision to get Tim involved was great – everyone really enjoyed the morning coffee and it really fit in well with what we wanted.”

“I loved the signs and decorations along the beach and track. I had so much fun designing, choosing fonts and making them! The signs, lamps and other things we pieced together really fit the vibe we were going for and also the setting leading down to the ceremony.”

The celebrations were all held on North Stradbroke Island with the ceremony on Home Beach, Samantha remarking “We didn’t think or consider any other venues! When we first started discussing the wedding, it was more about how we could get married, and show how much we loved and appreciated our family and friends too. We love travelling and adventures (our honeymoon is our second round the world trip, we will be gone for 8 months) and we wanted to give this type of experience to our family and friends. We had been to Straddie a few times and love the wildlife, landscape, sea life and chilled vibe. We just wanted to share one of our favourite places with those we love. It was also where we got engaged!”

She customised our whole ceremony and nothing was too hard or difficult! Again, we were happy to be supporting a young business owner – seems to be a theme!”

Celebrations continued with a breakfast at Point Lookout Community Hall.  “Gordon, our caterer, we heard about when talking to locals – and whilst he is sometimes difficult to get a hold of, apparently ALWAYS pulls through – no exception with us! We needed to keep in mind he was planning for dozens of different weddings while we were only planning one. The food was delicious, and the last minute request for fresh coconuts was met with ease! Our guests raved about all our vendors – and we have nothing but praise! They were all phenomenal!”

Bewitching Woodland Bridal Inspiration

With soft sunlight filtering through the trees onto the ethereal silhouette of an enchanting figure in an other-worldly, ivory gown, one would be forgiven for thinking they had transcended into an entirely different realm. The superb talent of Cassie Sullivan from Photography with Cassie, makeup artist Kate Beinke and model Andrea Rose created the concept for this simple yet striking shoot. The idea was to put together a soft, natural inspiration shoot, and to create an idea of a feminine bride running care free through the forest. The result is this bewitching woodland bridal inspiration shoot, and to say we are thoroughly entranced by it is an understatement.

The shoot came about with the idea of featuring the gorgeous make up work of the incredibly talented, up and coming makeup artist, Kate Beinke. Cassie explains, “We wanted a beautiful, soft, feminine mood to suit the stunning vintage dress that the model, Andrea, owns. Andrea found the floor length, empire waist gown with high neckline dress in an Alaskan Salvation Army store for $12, and she made her own creative flower head piece for the shoot.

Both Andrea, who is originally from Alaska, and Cassie, who is from Tasmania, have an affinity with the forest, so the trio went looking for beautiful winter light, and bare bone trees and pine needles to surround them. They found the perfect spot – a quiet, captivating pine forest outside of Canberra, and they caught the last rays of the winter sun on a May afternoon. The three confess that there may have been a little whisky consumed to keep them warm during the shoot,  and to help the creative process!
