Georgia Young Couture is a new kid on the block when  it comes to the bridal design world, but she’s already making a statement with her strong and bold bridal designs.

Debuting her second collection recently, entitled “The Lost Monarchy”, Georgia was inspired by her forthcoming trip to Iceland. The collection embodying strength, beauty and texture, hug and enhance the shape of the wearer making them inherently feminine.

I for one love the above gown – I think it’s my favourite with it’s high neck and long sleeves it’s modern yet somehow with the lines, fabric choice and shape so sophisticated. Georgia is inspired by the couture techniques of times gone by, sketching the gowns by hand for each of her brides who either choose one of Georgia’s gown pieces and change it to suit their style or work with Georgia to create a completely custom piece using fine, modern fabrics and laces.

Georgia Young Couture has a salon in Fitzroy (it’s a sight to behold with paper sketches adorning the walls on-top of hessian like fabric wall coverings). Georgia’s special space represents her own personal style – unique, well crafted and definitely unforgettable.

We asked Lianne of Dream Reflection five questions in five minutes –

What is your favourite after five drink?
To be honest, a good cup of tea and some biscuits!

Your favourite weekend getaway?
I really enjoy Port Macquarie…..it’s so pretty, relaxing and one of my fave restaurant/bar is there….amazing wine list and fantastic meals! Flying up is the only way to go if you have only a few days as it is quite a drive!

Favourite restaurant?
Recently I attended a good friend’s wedding at a gorgeous restaurant in Surry Hills called Porteno http://www.porteno.com.au  The venue itself is so beautiful, the wait staff are so elegantly dressed it is almost as though you have stepped back in time, and the food was the best flavour and presentation that I have ever experienced. Love, love, love!!!! It was truly a magical experience!

What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?
Not much to be honest, as I am usually up and out of the door on my way to a wedding job before the birds even rise….luckily my brides look after me with a cuppa and sometimes some snacks to keep me going!

Your favourite wedding story?
An old friend of mine, many years ago attended a dress up party at an amazing large home…..she said it was fully catered and the grounds were just gorgeous! Of course everyone was dressed up in their fancy dress, so already it had a great party atmosphere. A quarter way through, the couple hosting the party announced that they had put on this party so that the guests could all witness their marriage! A complete surprise for everyone as they hadn’t even announced their engagement!

They wanted a fun, no fuss and memorable wedding with no interruptions or opinions….they certainly got what they wanted! Super cute and candid idea…I will never forget it, it makes me smile!:)

Briar & Mitchell

As a big fan of cold weather I particularly love the romance of coats and snuggles in this engagement shoot of Briar and Mitchell from Sophie Baker Photography. Sophie chose Mudgeeraba with the couple for their engagement shoot, even incorporating Mitchell’s much loved Mini into the photographs.

On how they met, Briar and Mitchell remember, “Our siblings were friends before we were. We met at Mitchell’s brother’s birthday party when we were eight years old and actually bonded over the Spice Girls, of all things. We sat down on the tiled floor and listened to the radio for most of the night. So we’ve known each other for a long time.”

On what they love about one another, Briar and Mitchell remark ” We’ve been best friends for a long time, lovers for a short while. We both have strong personalities, so we often clash. But we’ve learned to appreciate the difference of opinion we both bring to the table and have gotten much better at arguing without fighting. We know at the end of the day that we can be fiercely passionate about our views and still respect each other’s opinion. It’s rare to have that balance down pat.”

The proposal occurred in the couple’s favourite country, they remember, “During a trip to Japan (one of Briar’s homes-away-from-home), Mitch proposed on a drizzly, foggy day up in the mountains of Kyoto, at the Kiyomuzi-dera temple (The “Pure Water Temple”) which overlooks Kyoto city. Briar said she sensed it was coming as Mitch suddenly seemed to become nervous, and kept looking for a quiet spot amongst the bustling temple. A sweet moment, and after she said yes they both swiftly agreed to get home out of the cold!”
