One of the most frustrating parts of wedding planning can be trying to select wedding stationery. It’s such an important part of the wedding, often setting the tone for the rest of your plans and giving guests an early glimpse into what the day will be like. Your wedding stationery will spend weeks, even months, on fridges and family note boards around the country before making its way into photo albums, scrapbooks and memento boxes. Thank goodness we have Maddison Wallace of Paperlust on hand to give us some guidance when it comes to selecting stationery and the brilliant services that Paperlust offer a bride-to-be.

We love featuring styled shoots of talented suppliers that showcase bridal looks with difference. Taking to the city streets, this styled shoot was designed for a bride that is comfortable in her own skin and walks to the beat of her own drum. With stylist Ella Zampatti at the helm, they created varying looks that were complemented beautifully with the hair and makeup skills of Tribe beauty babe Cassandra de Bruin and  gowns by Shane McConnell Couture.

Using the beautiful back drop of inner city Melbourne, it’s a true urban delight and there to capture the magic is Tribe photography favourite Jenna Fahey-White.

After a comical yet sentimental proposal, Kelly and Luke tied the knot at a simple and stylish ceremony in Geelong’s Botanical Gardens. A fabulous celebration followed at Zigfrids where Alice, from Say It With Flowers, added a beautiful, botanical touch to the venue. Dressed in a gorgeous rose gold gown, Kelly danced the night away with her new hubby Luke, opting for more of an epic dance off, as opposed to a traditional first dance! All the fun was snapped by photographer, Eric Ronald.
