The moment I laid eyes on this bridal shower by Essential Wedding Design I became instantly and absolutely enamored.  It is sweet, sweet enchantment through and through from the glittering table settings to the flirty and romantically styled bride and bridesmaids right up to their delightfully coifed hair.  I don't think I've ever seen anything more charming!  You'll be in for the sweetest of treats if you go over to the full gallery!

From Trish of Essential Wedding Design... Elegant bridal showers in Australia are yet to become commonplace. It's all too common to see the same games played, the same activities organized and food and decorations set out no differently from '90s bridal showers. I want to see bridesmaids setting a standard of real bridal elegance and beauty, in such ways as the styling, the themes and the decor. So in designing this styled shoot, I wanted to demonstrate this class through the color scheme, the dessert table and sitting table layout and styling, the dress code and the hair accessories and jewelery. The decor's beauty was only magnified by the girls, who looked stunningly beautiful, glowing and happy.
