Sarah & Mike
If puppy dogs are your thing, then might I say that today’s relaxed Margaret River engagement photos are just for you? Gorgeous puppy dog Luna practically stole the show from Sarah and Mike as they walked beside the sea with Bianca Kate Photography behind the camera, but I think these two lovebirds shone just as brightly as they shared their story with us.
Sarah tells their story of how they came to be. “We met when Mike started working at the supermarket I worked at. A few months later I invited Mike around to our house for a party with a group of people from work and we hit it off immediately.
On choosing Margaret River for their shoot, Sarah explains “We wanted to have some pictures of us in one of our favourite places – Margaret River. It was Bianca’s idea to go to the cliffs, but we liked it because it’s not something easily done in a wedding dress – it was the perfect opportunity to do something a little adventurous.
We also had to have our puppy Luna in the shots. It was great to have such good pictures of her while she was still so little!”
The couple were practically on top of the world when Mike proposed, Sarah, explaining “Mike and I were on holiday in America, even though we had been together for 6 years he was incredibly nervous. We managed to watch a Broadway show, have drinks, have dinner and walk halfway around New York City before he finally proposed to me at 1 am at the top of the Empire State Building.”
On what she loves about Mike, Sarah notes “I am always in awe of Mike’s work ethic. He is also the most generous, kind and caring person I have ever met. I love how much he cares about his friends and family.”
On what he loves about Sarah, Mike tells “I love that Sarah is so family oriented. She is easy going and good fun to be around.”
Sarah tells “Mike and I refused to admit to anyone that we were actually in a relationship. It took us 3 months to officially become “in a relationship”.”
When it comes to wedding talent, Australia has a plethora and today’s autumnal wedding luncheon inspiration in a rainforest is all about showing it off.
Coordinated by Bronwyn at Brand Notes, a team of photographer Cloud Catcher Studio, stylist Arctic Fox Hire, floral designer New England Flower Co., gown designer Emmy Mae Bridal, stationery designer Love Notes and special guest Ulyana Aster created an autumn inspired luncheon at the beautiful rainforest venue of Cedar Creek Lodges.
With the rainforest of Mount Tamborine as the backdrop, a long table was laid with taupe linens and dressed with blush linen napkins and grey crockery. Tea light candles were set among wild centrepieces of pink, apricot and blush blooms, complemented by handmade paper menus and wooden cut-out name place settings.
Phew, Dotties! Today is our last “office day” before we shut the doors and head off into the sunshine for a few weeks. We have a lot of plans for big projects in 2018, so we’re taking these quiet few weeks to recharge our batteries (and perhaps do a little Christmas shopping!) before we kick off the new year with a bang.
It feels so funny to farewell 2017; such an amazing, big year and so full of change and additions in the patterned offices. It’s a cliche, but every moment has blessed us this year and we’re so excited about the year ahead and all that we have planned!
We have content scheduled every day we’re away (including our top ten roundups for the year!) so do stay tuned! And meanwhile, didn’t we just jam all of that wedding goodness into the last week? Let’s round it up!
We’re ending the year with a bit of a melody from the crew at Mr Boutique – a little Frank Sinatra and toe-tapping jazz seemed like the perfect way to end the year!
