White Meadow “Romantic Rebel” Bridal Collection

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


If there ever was a year for modern bridal styling that hits the trends in unique and interesting ways then I am sure that 2018 is it, and one of the names to watch? White Meadow.

The Sydney designed brand has launched their latest collection “Romantic Rebel”, inspired by a refreshing take on catwalk trends and a re-interpretation of the season’s must-haves into beautiful gowns that fit the sensibilities of the bride looking for a fresh take on luxury bridal design.

Founder Natasha has spent 12 years of her life in fashion, falling in love with fabrics and details and carrying that love into the White Meadow label. The stunning pieces, of which the new collection has twelve, brings modern of the moment trends to life. Playful jumpsuits with gorgeous cotton laces, two-piece ensembles with beautiful lace bodices and flowing skirts, deep plunging necklines, 3D floral applique detail and even colour – the palest of mints the feature of the “When Love Takes Over” two-piece set.

Natasha telling ” Romantic Rebel is the perfect phrase to describe our brides. They come to us having searched high and low for the right mix of edgy, beautiful and functional wedding ready outfit that isn’t going to break the bank.”

The White Meadow  “Romantic Rebel” collection is available via the website and the Sydney showroom.

Pria & Damien’s Romantic Watsons Bay Engagement

by | Bride, Engagements


Pria & Damien

It was a cloudy day when Pria and Damien headed to Watsons Bay with photographer
Born In November to commemorate their engagement. With a sunshine filled beach engagement in their minds, the trio had to adjust their plans when Mother Nature intervened. Instead, they made the most of the steely water and chill of the clouds for an engagement session that instead, focused on their joy for each other.

Damien knew he was going to marry Pria the moment the pair met, the bride to be remembering “We met at work. We first really got to know each other when we went for drinks together after work and in his words, Damien literally knew right then that he would marry me.”

On what he loves about his future wife, Damien tells “It was Pria’s heart, her beautiful mind and the fact that we make a very good team in life. We both share the same view of the world, aspirations and the same goals.”

Pria tells the story of how Damien popped the question. “We became engaged during a tour trip to Venice. It was after a nice dinner that we decided to check out a pier near the restaurant on the matter. Damien surprised me with the ring which was very unexpected. Yes, I cried tears of joy while Damien was completely relieved that he could stop being paranoid about losing the ring in the restaurant!”


On what she loves about Damien, Pria remarks “Damien is a sweet, kind, gentle soul with the genuine empathy of people around him. In time, all of us make mistakes but I have never met anyone who tries so hard to be better every day.”
