Your wedding day is the ultimate reflection of who you and your Groom are as a couple, and you’re not boring, so why should your guest book be? Whether it’s rocks to display in your garden or artwork to dress up your walls, these unique alternatives will convince you to ditch the traditional book for something with a little more personality and flair.

What would be our perfect day? We imagine it might look something like this Centennial Park engagement session. From a dreamy picnic styled in shades of porcelain and blue to romantic strolls in the woods and picturesque bike rides, We Are Origami captured it all in the most perfect light right here!
From We Are Origami… Jaw-dropping is undeniably the best way we can describe this gorgeous session with Dorothy and Clifford.
Inspired by the stunning colours and vibe of the Greek Islands, this styled shoot had exquisite details, including a table dripping with soft white peony flowers, a stunning antipasto selection and incredible light.
With playful and affectionate undertones so evident in the moments captured, Dorothy and Clifford had a 7 and a half year long friendship before they came to us to shoot their engagement. We hope you enjoy it!

When I get married, I can only hope my wedding looks half as beautiful as this breathtaking photo shoot. From the soft lighting and romantic florals, to the picture-perfect setting and adorable cake, I’m completely obsessed with every detail that Whitney Heard Photography caught on camera. Excuse me while I spend the rest of the day admiring all the pretty.
From Dominique Flowers…The hazy shades of dusk, in shimmering gold, pink and blush, from the sun setting over the white cliffs of Mackenzies Bay were the inspiration found for this airy and romantic bridal editorial. The azure ocean blues of Tamarama and gentle movements of the sea, the bride resplendent in her frothy, like ocean foam, tulle gown and grounded by the strength of her groom’s love, just like the solid rocks they stand upon. The bride’s hair softly tousled, silk ribbons tied to the foraged garden bouquet and calligraphy inscribed chiffon billowing with the ocean’s breeze.
Airy greens, adorned with old-world roses, and gauzy fabrics layer the dining table, their edges casually unfinished. Open weave plant-dyed napkins, slightly marbled in colour, and antique silverware, tied in pairs with delicate silk ribbon, are set upon gilded menus and hand-made dinnerware, with a marine-inspired lace design, to signify the bond shared during the couples first meal together, as husband and wife.
The bride and groom lovingly embrace to watch the sun drop below the cliffs. The two-tiered cake, decorated with a floral design in soft watercolour strokes, as sweet as their love, to be enjoyed with vintage champagne coupes of bubbly Billecart-Salmon Rose. A perfect ending to an even more perfect day.

From the Bride’s stunning lace gown, to the seriously stare-worthy reception, this wedding is truly something special. A family-centered celebration, this gorgeous affair is overflowing with the beautiful Sydney as a backdrop and one lucky-in-love duo. Jonathan Wherrett captured it all and it’s waiting for you in the gallery.
From Jonathan Wherrett… About a year ago, I was contacted by Shirley (the bride) who had been drawing inspiration from weddings on Style Me Pretty. She had stumbled upon a wedding I shot and contacted me to shoot her special day. I was excited about the prospect of shooting an inner-city wedding, and as Shirley and Daniel’s wedding day unfolded I was blown away by every detail.
From her stunning fitted lace gown and veil designed by Steven Khalil, to the reception at Quay Restaurant with some of the best views of Sydney I’ve ever seen, this wedding was something special. The venue was beautifully styled by She Designs with no detail unconsidered.
With many of Daniel’s family flying in from China especially for the wedding, there were many emotional moments. It was incredibly family-centered and Shirley and Daniel were very intentional about making the day amazing for their guests.
Married in the stunning St Marks Darling Point in the heart of Sydney, this wedding reflects the greatest attractions of Sydney in a creative, elegant and beautiful way.
