Daalarna Couture “Whisper” Bridal Collection

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


There’s just something about Daalarna Couture gowns that instantly draw you in. They’re timeless, elegant and oh-so-romantic. Daalarna’s newest bridal collection is no exception. Inspired by Iceland’s beautiful and unforgettable landscapes, the “Whisper” Collection is filled with light and soft silhouettes accented by stunning patterns and three-dimensional embroidered lace motifs. Swoon!

This new collection also draws inspiration from inner awareness and wanting to create gowns that would allow a bride’s individual style to shine through.

“Although following current trends has been typical in the recent years, today’s couples are now more open to pursue their own personal needs and feelings as they prepare for the big day,” explains Anita Benes, Daalarna’s designer.

“This growing desire for self-expression can be seen in many areas; from choosing the dress and the location to the smallest details. This inner awareness specifically moved me during the design process, and I could not have found a more perfect location than Iceland to express unique elements for these new styles.”

Dalaarna Couture is stocked in Australia at Hope x Page.

Bianca & Nick’s Relaxed Engagement Photos in Melbourne

by | Bride, Engagements


Bianca & Nick

I don’t know about you, but there are times when nothing is better than a sunset walk with my beloved. So when Corey Wright took to the streets of Melbourne to capture the story of Bianca and Nick, we were sold!

With St Vincent Garden & Port Melbourne beach as their backdrop, Bianca and Nick, along with Corey explored the Melbourne backdrops they have known and loved for years, the simple nature of the photos completely in line with their own personalities.

It was the most beautiful next space for the pair who met when they were just 18 at a mutual friend’s house party. Ten years on, it was in Byron Bay that Nick popped the question. He fills us in. “I decided to propose to Bianca on her birthday which is on the 4th of September. We chose to go away to Byron Bay for her ‘birthday’ but little did she know I had bigger plans for our trip away. I organised a hot air balloon on the morning of her birthday and proposed to her at sunrise amongst the hinterland of Byron Bay. I then organised a champagne breakfast for us afterwards to celebrate.”

With ten years of relationship bliss under their belts, these two have plenty of stories to share. “One that I can remember is when I organised a surprise birthday dinner for Nick’s 23rd birthday. After trying to be discrete as possible and trying to kill as much time in the city, I finally received a message saying everyone had arrived and we could finally make our entrance. Since the restaurant had dim lighting and Nick doesn’t have the best eyesight, he could hear people yelling out ‘SURPRISE!’ however only realised it was actually for him when he stood next to one of his close friends and was shocked to see them. From now on I know to only go to restaurants with bright lights!”

On what he loves about his future wife, Nick tells “Bianca is caring and selfless who has a loving and warming personality which I love. I love that she has a hard-working ethic in everything that she does but also can have fun and unwind when needed. It is safe to say after all these years of being together that I can’t wait to experience the next chapter.”

On her love for Nick, Bianca shares “Nick is everything I’m not, he is always relaxed and takes things as they come. I think this works out well as we balance each other out and we can support each other. He has such a great outlook and can always see the positive which is such a great trait to have. We starting dating quite young which has given us the chance to grow up together and I feel so lucky to have had the ability to travel and experience things together.”
