A Column by ME!

Bonjour mes amis,

This week ends on a very exciting note.

I can finally share with you all some news that I've been bursting to announce to the world.

When the next edition of Discerning Bride is published there will be a little something by moi! A great (if I may say so myself) little column.

The distribution of this issue is still a little way off so I'll be sure to keep you posted.

Have a great weekend!

Inspiration: Contemporary Elegance

Bonjour mes amis,
A few weeks ago, I teamed up with one half of the amazing Feather + Stone - Seth & Tenielle. Today I'm thrilled to be able to share the results of that shoot with you!
The Task: An inspirational shoot for an upcoming issue of a wedding magazine
The Theme: Contemporary elegance
The Colours: Black and white with a hint of green
The venue for the shoot was Studio 13. Located in Brisbane's West End this industrial space with it's permanant rigging is perfect for the modern bride.
These photo's in particular, perfectly demonstrate how by changing only one or two elements you can give them setting a completely different look.
As is the case with a shoot like this, a little extra help is required to pull it all together. Of course I called on a few of my favourite suppliers:
...and of course the photographers for the day...Feather + Stone.

Spring/Summer 2010/11 Fashion – LISA HO

Bonjour mes amis

I’ve recently returned from a wonderful trip to Melbourne and am more fashion obsessed than ever before so what better time to share with you the beautiful Spring/Summer bridal collection from one of Australia’s leading designers, Lisa Ho!

It’s almost impossible not to lose yourself in the collection as you’ll soon experience for yourself. Oozing sophistication and enhancing the divine curves of the female form this latest collection from Lisa Ho really is just what the doctor ordered.

“There’s a romantic sophistication to the collection,” says Lisa. “It’s harder edged, more modern, but always glamorous and relaxed. These are pieces for the woman who is always moving forward.”

With that in mind, what better way to move forward in your relationship than getting married? The strong presence of nude tones, the beautiful draping and the divine craftsmanship of each dress perfectly lend themselves to the romanticism that goes hand in hand with weddings.
For more information on any of these dresses, contact your nearest Lisa Ho boutique.
