Bordering Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Terrey Hills Golf & Country Club is set in a landscaped championship 18 hole golf course. Looking out over vistas of perfectly manicured greens towards bushland the surroundings provide plenty of stunning photo opportunities. The relaxed atmosphere in grandly proportioned rooms with wrap around verandahs, walkways covered in wisteria, and manicured gardens give you plenty of options for personalising your ceremony and reception.

We asked Melissa of Terrey Hills Golf & Country Club five questions in five minutes –

What is your favourite after five drink?

A Peach Bellini.

Your favourite weekend getaway?


Favourite restaurant?

Ricky’s – Noosa Riverside.

What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?

A Poached egg on sourdough spelt toast, with Sue’s Coriander Pesto, organic tomatoes, Nimbin cheese, home grown flat leaf parsley, Himalayan rock salt and a dash of Worcestershire sauce. Yumm!

Your favourite wedding story?

Perhaps it’s the performer in me but a flash mob proposal will get me smiling every time!

Snapshot Sunday – Mum

Aren’t mums the best?

It’s Mothers Day, so of course a little ode is in order. A nod, a virtual hug to mums.

They’re our best friends, holding our hands, giving the best hugs and pushing us to be amazing people.

They dry our tears, bake the best cakes and always manage to make you feel like you’re home.

Whether by blood, by care or by loss. I hope today, that they feel as loved as they make us feel every day. Especially mine, who deserves so much more than a sentence on a blog post, probably more than I will ever be able to show her.

Delicate Jewels From Violetfly Jewelry

by | Bride, Jewellery

As a lover of all things delicate and dainty, I was smitten when I stumbled across the handmade jewellery pieces of designer Violetfly Jewelry.

Designer Katie, creates fine jewellery pieces using delicate metals and gemstones. A dainty ruby stacking ring is made from rose gold, blue green diamond chips are wrapped around a gold band, an amethyst cube sits atop a sharp edged band.

Each piece, handmade in Katie’s studio is made under her motto of “made with love” and part of that love is Katie’s love for the tiniest and most beautiful stones she can find. She’ll even create custom pieces!

I love the stacking rings particularly, giving a different look to wedding day jewels. But each piece would make a beautiful wedding day accessory or a gift for your favourite bridesmaids. The shimmering, sparkly bracelets sit understated and subtle but considered, and the earrings each dainty and modern.
