Loving the Blogosphere

This week there has been so much beautiful stuff floating around the blogosphere.

1) Thanks to EAD I found this beautiful blog and saw these stunning invitations.

*Sigh*. These are just SO beautiful. I love the honeycomb pattern that’s picked up throughout the different pieces and I’m in love with the gorgeous calligraphy from Jenna Hein. Swoon.

2) SMP have been doing a fashion feature and oh my it’s been eye candy galore. Abby showcased recent work from Jenny Yoo and Saja.

I love the bold colours of these fabulous numbers.

More gorgeous colour from Saja:

3) Finally, I’ve just discovered Once Wed (yeah, yeah I know, where have I been?) which is an just an awesome site and I love this bride’s beautiful blue accessories:

Now I’m heading out the door for a super long weekend. Hooray! See you next week.

Design Concept: Pink, Purple and Sunshine Yellow

It’s been a while since the last design concept appeared here and as the weeks have sped by the weather outside is slowly changing. Despite the gorgeous sunshine last weekend, the nights are slowly edging their way in and there’s no denying that autumn is on its way. It seemed only right therefore to stretch the summer time out as far as possible with a bright and vibrant design concept.

So here it is, a feel good, Indian summer style concept. First of all I just love the combination of fuchsia pink and Cadbury’s purple and the addition of sunshine yellow adds a new dimension to this full proof combo. I also love, love, love maids’ dresses in different colours, it’s a great way to add interest and bring out the different personalities of your best ladies. Finally, the invitation from Ceci New York is just stunning and the idea of walking through that yellow forest floor is well…heavenly.

I Heart: Monsoon

I love Monsoon and their uber delicate, feminine designs. They do a great range of affordable but beautiful dresses and I think it would be just about possible to dress all of your female bridal party from the one store.

For a flower girl I love this sweet headband and matching dress:

Bridesmaid wise I think this sophisticated number is perfect for a sleek urban affair:

Whilst for the Mother of the Bride, I think this evening gown is perfect:

Real Wedding: Mellissa and Scott

The last few shots from this beautiful vintage themed wedding:

There were some seriously stylish guests at this wedding (just the shoes were amazing) but this lady; the makeup artist, wins. She looked stunning and fitted in perfectly with the vintage theme.

Perfect finishing shot:

Thank you so much to Paul for these fabulous images. Go check out Paul’s site for more serious eye candy.

Real Wedding: Mellissa and Scott – The Preparations

I was so lucky to working with the immensely talented Paul White over the weekend. These magazine-worthy images are just SO beautiful and capture the spirit of the wedding perfectly.

Our beautiful bride Mellissa:

Can you imagine just how excited I was about these shoes, real Louboutins – they were amazing.

It was a real privilege to work with Mellissa and Natalie, they’re sisters and very much best friends too. They made me wish I had a sister!

I am a lot in love with this image:
