Wedding Showcase: Kylie & Andrew

Bonjour mes amis,

On Saturday, 23 October 2011, Kylie & Andrew were married at the beautiful Stuartholme Chapel and continued the celebration and the Brisbane Polo Club.

Provided with a brief of a wedding reception that didn't look too much like a wedding reception we set out with a colour scheme of ruby red and crisp white and brought the room to life with a relaxed mix of blooms, red lacquer charger plates and deep red votive holders.

The bride wore a beautiful dress made from the same fabric as her grandmother's wedding dress (which was also worn by her 5 sisters), the antique lace perfectly complimented by her vintage inspired shoes.
Congratulations to Kylie & Andrew

Seasonal Decor: Autumn 2011

Bonjour mes amis,

With summer around the corner, it's time for the bride's of autumn 2011 to start seriously thinking about their decor.

Forecasts show that red will be one of the standout colours with shades ranging from Persian Red to Burgundy. The colour of passion is the perfect choice for a wedding and its depth complimentary to the autumn weather.

Some brides may have some concerns about the colour being too bold or overwhelming, but when used in the correct way it can be absolutely stunning...don't be afraid to dress the entire table in red for an incredibly striking setting. Red can be incorporated into many aspects of your wedding so to inspire you; here are some images from our favourite suppliers.

Industry News

Bonjour mes amis,

One of the many advantages of being a wedding planner is that I get the pleasure of receiving invitations to some fantastic events.

Last week was particularly exciting for me as two suppliers whose work I have grown to love were celebrating a new and exciting stage of their businesses.

First up was the showroom and product launch for Styled Events.

With tables decked out with beautiful settings, flowers and stationery it was like Christmas come early! I had heard about the new space and products for a while so I was almost bursting out of my skin by the time the showcase rolled around.

Oh, and to top off the evening there was a fantastic goody bag!!
Later that week, it was Anna from WhiteGold Boutique's turn. I haven't know Anna for very long but I've quickly become a fan of her work.

This second party was to celebrate the official opening of her first WhiteGold Boutique salon...what a landmark for the business!
If you're in need of some pampering visit the salon at:
Shop 66
Park Road

I raise a delicious glass of bubbly to both teams! Congratulations!

Lots of love
