Ivory Tribe Top 5 Real Weddings – 2017


Here we are again! The end of a fabulous year and reflecting on the incredibly beautiful and unique weddings we shared on our blog in 2017.  From urban and garden celebrations in inner city Melbourne, surf coast festivals and glamour amongst the vines in the Yarra Valley, we loved each and every one of them for the unique take these couples brought to their own wedding days. We take a look back at Ivory Tribe’s Top 5 most popular real weddings of 2017.


Bride Business – Pocket Planner by Ivory Tribe


Remember our sleek and sophisticated wedding planning book Bride Business? She was the new gal about town who took brides-to-be by storm with her fresh take on wedding planning.

Let us now introduce you to Bride Business – Pocket Planner, the sassy little sister of our wedding planning book Bride Business.

Bride Business – Pocket Planner is for the bride-to-be that mostly has her wedding planning sh*t together but is still looking for a sleek space to put her wedding planning notes and thoughts.


Party Vibe Wedding Celebrations


It’s that time of year, we have all the festive feels as we officially enter the party season!

So why don’t we inspire you with some of the real weddings we have featured that definitely have that party vibe as well as our top 5 tips to make this happen!


Real Wedding – Lauren & Tom, St Kilda VIC


When stylist Lauren, became engaged to the love of her life Tom, wedding planning was not a hard task. Equipped with her creativity and experience, Lauren and Tom created a day that is one to remember.

Using two of Melbourne’s most sought after wedding venues, they used greenery to tie their two venues together and gave their celebration an effortless feel.

They didn’t sweat the small stuff, and loved the process that lead them to the happiest day of their lives, and there to capture it all was Katie Harmsworth.




So the feel good festive vibes are upon us. Enter champagne, glitz, glam and sparkle and let your inner diva shine bright into the New Year.

Teaming up with a bunch of our talented Tribe we recently pulled together a little shoot we like to call ‘Disco Dolls’. Inspired by New Years Eve with all its sparkle and fun we hope this editorial evokes some party passion for those who dare to break with tradition and maybe opt for a tassel or sequin over satin and chiffon.



Real Wedding – Hannah & Jordan, Albert Park VIC


For many couples, it can be taboo to see their husband or wife before the walk down the aisle, but when Hannah and Jordan came face-to-face at their local cafe the morning of their wedding, they couldn’t help but cherish the special moment they shared.

Hannah and Jordan kept true to their personalities and celebrated a day that was simple, elegant and full of romance. They let their Albert Park venue shine and used soft candlelight to create a beautiful ambiance.

Their seven-piece band then had everyone up and on their feet to dance the night away while Blossom Daisy Creative was there to capture it all.


A photographer with heart, getting to know Ashleigh Haase


Ashleigh Haase is a true creative at heart and when she discovered photography she soon found herself drawn to weddings and capturing the natural love and connection between a couple on what is one of the most special days in their lives.

Ashleigh’s talent has only grown over the years and she finds that she is drawn to couples that are natural and relaxed and keep their day focused on their love story.

We loved sitting down with Ashleigh and learning more about her journey with photography and some tips when it comes to keeping those nerves away.


Real Wedding – Diana & Tim, West Melbourne VIC


Diana and Tim enlisted the help of family and friends and created a simple, yet beautiful celebration in a wonderful warehouse in West Melbourne.

Describing their style as modern rustic with Scandinavian simplicity, this pair used bunches of greenery to set the scene.

Hitting the dance-floor early in the evening, Diana choreographed a dance full of fun and laughter and Mavis Jean Photography captured all the delightful moments.


Temple – Bo & Luca by SoHo Bride


When Bo & Luca launched their affordable and luxurious sister line ‘TEMPLE by Bo & Luca’ it was a natural fit for the stylish SoHo Bride, based in Newtown and one of our fashion favourites for a bride-to-be.

TEMPLE by Bo & Luca is a set of ten youthful, minimalist and price-conscious gowns and the first collection was previewed at New York Bridal Week to an ecstatic audience. The designs take their cue from the boldness of the 70’s but maintain the elegance and intricacy of an heirloom wedding down. TEMPLE remains effortless and relaxed, without boning, cinching and ties of traditional bridal wear. These gowns are as comfortable as they are beautiful.
