Wedding Showcase: Peta May & Kamahl

Bonjour mes amis,

On Saturday, 11 December 2010, Peta May and Kamahl were married by the Brisbane River at Admiralty Towers Park and celebrated with guests overlooking the Story Bridge at Venice Restaurant, the place where they began their romance.

Based in London, Peta and Kamahl met with me on one of their trips to Brisbane to discuss the finer details of their wedding. The aim: something vintage inspired without being overwhelmingly feminine.
Beautiful stationery by Bespoke Letterpress Boutique perfectly set the tone of the day which featured champagne and soft pink decor, soft David Austin's and fully blown peonies.

Congratulations to Peta May and Kamahl!

Marcus Bell - QLD Flood Appeal

Bonjour mes amis,
I was recently contacted by one extremely talented photographer, Marcus Bell (the creative genius behind Studio Impressions) who informed me of his QLD flood appeal.

As a resident of Brisbane, QLD, the award-winning photographer is raising money to help flood victims by placing ten of his own classic images up for sale. All proceeds from each sale will be going to the Queensland Governments Flood disaster relief fund. Each signed "Artist Proof" print is an original award winning photographic work. Each unframed 24 inch print for sale for $950 (plus postage) and is printed to the highest quality 300GSM Archival cotton paper. Many of these prints represents a saving of between 50-75% off the normal edition print price.
In addition to this, 20% of ALL Marcus Bell Photographer Resources Products sold during January and February will also be donated to the fund. This also includes the 5 new Instant Effect Presets products recently released after a year in development.
For more information in relation to the floods and how you can help, please visit the Marcus Bell Blog where you will find links to both the Fine Art Gallery and the Resources site. Alternatively, you may like donate directly to the QLD Premier's Flood Disaster Relief Fund.
