Mkay

{collaboration} with Still Love

Tucked away in Middle Swan, just 40 minutes out of Perth’s city is Chapel Farm; a warm rustic venue which made for the perfect spot for this collaboration shoot. Rebecca from Fox & Rabbit, Glenn & Lauren from Still Love Photography, Jess of The Butcher, The Baker, The Stylist & Creator, and the stunning Emma behind Milla Makeup were the forces behind making this “country-meets-industrial-with-a-heavy-dose-of-glamour” (in the words of Rebecca) inspired shoot. Here are the beautiful photos… I also snuck in the behind the scene shots because I liked them too.

How beautiful are these hanging votives above the long bridal table? Specially because they are cleverly hanging from an old ladder that was found lying around at Chapel Farm.

{collaboration} with Angela Higgins

This very intimate and glamorous style shoot was a collaboration with some of Perth’s most talented wedding folk. When Rebecca from Fox & Rabbit contacted me to ask if I’d be interested in having my bow ties feature in a shoot with Angela Higgins at Perth’s new Print Hall, I needed no extra convincing. Here are the beautiful results, and all the talented people that were involved…

Firstly our real life couple, Erica and Marc, enjoyed a quiet dinner at the tremendous Print Hall Apple Daily Bar, followed by Marc’s proposal in the stairwell leading up to Bob’s Bar.

Not only do Print Hall have an incredible venue, they also put up a mean spread of food that they generously cooked up for us all during the shoot.

I am always genuinely surprise, flawed and inspired by Fox & Rabbit‘s ability to create beautiful flower arrangements to set off a room perfectly.

{collaboration} with Design Patrol

Recently I got together with a bunch of super clever people over on the East Coast of this fine country to put together a film by the talented Design Patrol.  A shoot filled will some serious laid back bohemian inspiration in one of the most beautiful locations of Shakey Tables/Hunter Country Lodge in NSW. If I could get married to Joel all over again I would definitely be hitting up Grace Loves Lace for my dress, as well as Polli for some cute little cufflinks. If you live on the East Coast side of the country Flowers By Lorey has you sorted for some gorgeous blooms, as well as Wild Rose Sweets & Styling for yummy cakes. Om Shalom can do wonders with your hair & make-up, whilst Teeki Designs and Ali Cries Wolf‘s have a large range of individual pieces to pick from.

Here are some of my favourite stills from the shoot. Film to come soon.

{featured wedding} Sean + Karli

I absolutely love being apart of weddings! Some may think its the party at the end that is most enjoyable (which don’t get me wrong, almost all of the time those moments are hilarious and fun), though the part I enjoy the most is watching two beautiful lives come together in love, and to see them make a commitment to each other whilst fully understanding the challenges and circumstances life has dealt, that make them the person they are that day.

This day in chilly April, Sean and Karli; two incredible friends of mine, tied the knot. As soon as Karli got in contact with me to chat blue velvet bow ties I knew this day would be filled with glamour and romance. And then, to my absolute delight, I was advised the talent found in Matt Biocich Photography, Fox & Rabbit Blooms, and Milla Makeup would be apart of the day as well. As you will see in the pictures below Sean and each of the groomsmen wore a Midnight Velvet bow tie, and I got to also make a cute as pie junior bow tie for the little page boy. And if you were wondering, Karli wore a stunning custom æ’lkemi gown, which everyone was ever so excited to check out on the day.
