Vanessa and Jay’s Villa Botanica Destination Wedding Photo by Sabra Creative

Isn’t that a gorgeous bouquet? I love destination weddings which you can view on our Honeymoons blog!

Did you notice our new pin it button? I think it’s the handiest thing! Hover over any image on the site and in the top left hand corner a pin it button appears making it dead easy to pin the beautiful images on Pinterest! It even links the photo directly to the post it came from so you can find the photographer and the other vendors easily! (Big thanks to Prue and Felicity for designing and installing it for us!)

The film of the week this week was sent to us by The White Tree. I’m not quite sure which part I love the most of Sarah and Ray’s Melbourne wedding but I think it definitely has to do with the little parade between the ceremony and reception. How wonderful!
