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.
We are super excited to share that mkay will be exhibiting at the sweet and sassy fair that it First Comes Love this year. Tomorrow St Georges College in Crawley will be busting at the seems with all sorts of inspiration for people planning pledges and parties.

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.
I stumbled upon the work of Daniela Henriquez a few weeks ago via flickr surprisingly, and found great humour and delight in her series titled ‘Actitudes Animales.’ Illustrations of dressed up animals may not necessarily be all that original these days, though I really enjoy Daniela’s unrefined and colourful approach. There wasn’t much I could find on Daniela, other than the fact she hails from Talca, Chile and also seems to be a keen photographer (apparently?). She unfortunately doesn’t have a online shop to purchase any of her work, but you can take a look at her drawings here or here.
