We are featuring SUCH a lovely Australian wedding today, with pretty, feminine touches and a sense of style that is completely envious. Here are a few more details and bits of eye candy...

From Laura, the beautiful bride...

I had planned so many details, and there was a little bridezilla in me that sometimes unleashed when things just had to be perfect. As a graphic designer, of course our wedding had to have a logo. Which has evident throughout; menus, table numbers,  the place cards, the order of service, the invitations... I had even made the sparklers once featured on SMP. My theme was classic black and white.

I designed my bridesmaid dresses, sourced the material and embellishment. The idea was to have the same dress for each bridesmaid but to have variations to suit each bridesmaid and to create a little bit of personality rather than strict uniform. Two of my bridesmaids were pregnant so the flowing style of the dresses accommodated this well. I loved the way the wind caught the dresses and they looked liquid floating in the breeze. The groomsmen wore all black, it looked very sharp and was also fitting to our theme. We had a beautiful venue with a pretty lawn and cute vintage chairs.
