By the Seashore Wedding Inspiration

Capturing the ethereal beauty of the sea and its raw, natural charm Stewart Leishman worked up inspiration that’ll leave you speechless. With floral arrangements by Poppy Culture this quiet seaside shoot, stripped down to the bare elements, is perfect for its natural, wildly beautiful setting. Take in the full spectrum of the Morning Star Estate in the full gallery here.


From Makeup By Sophie KnoxWith the inspiration of wild, rugged & whimsical some local talent from the Mornington Peninsula got their creative hats on, and magic happened.

The location Morning Star Estate, has a lot of history behind it, adding to the mood and feel of the shoot. Sophie Knox the hair and makeup artist wanted to achieve a soft and glowing makeup. To complement the costal tones. Lauren from Poppy Culture put together a wild, natural collection of trailing textures in soft coastal tones. Photographer Stewart Leishman shot the day in film, and the results are beatiful.

Vintage Elopement in the Hinterland’s of Australia’s Gold Coast

Intimate, heartfelt, and overflowing with love, this Australian elopement beautifully captured by Sophie Baker Photography is what my wedding blogging dreams are made of. My love started with the Bride’s gorgeous Graces Loves Lace gown and then just seemed to grow with each and every gorgeous image, making me head over heels for this love-filled gallery


From Sophie Baker PhotographyKarla & Dave have the most authentic, deeply-rooted love for each other. They eloped in the morning beneath a chandelier-draped tree in the hinterland’s of Australia’s Gold Coast with 5 of their nearest and dearest friends. It was the most relaxed, genuine, heartfelt experience I (the photographer) have ever been involved in, and I walked away having gained two great friends in Karla & Dave. We met back up after their ceremony near sunset to continue their portraits. Karla’s ring is a smaller replica of Princess Kate’s.

Industrial Dessert Parlor Inspiration

I’m a firm believer in everyday indulgence and this industrial inspiration raises the (dessert) bar. The stylings of Dessert Parlour captured by Neiyo elevate a sweet tooth into an art form and have me dreaming about nibbling on some of Saras Cakes And Cookies and those raw Pana Chocolate morsels. There are more goodies to relish from the entire sweet experience here.

From NeiyoI was extremely stoked when Dessert Parlour approached me for this shoot as she specialises in desserts and I am a lover of sweets and desserts! We chose Donkey Wheel House as the venue for this styled industrial shoot as it is a new venue located in the city, it is almost like a cellar door being hidden in the basement of a skyscraper and its vibe is exactly what we were looking for.

The inspiration for the shoot was to highlight the raw elements in the venue (like wood, metal and concrete). There is so much beauty in exposed brick walls which was essentially the backdrop for both the dessert table and table setting.

The dessert table was all about decadence. The marquee lights brought the fun into a gorgeous spread of sweets like marshmallows, alfajores, chocolate bars, cake pops and chocolate cake. Foliage was the main floral for this look so a foliage installation acted as decor and escort cards display as well.

The table setting is a perfect setup for an intimate affair. Using wine barrels as table bases and beautifully arranged contrasts of stone plates, crystal cut glasses and a wooden floral centerpiece, it’s the perfect setup for an intimate affair right in the heart of the CBD.
