After months of dreaming of our Grand Opening Showroom Party we finally broke open the champagne and celebrated in style with 60 guests on Tuesday 24th November in Woollahra.
Rouba & her wonderful team from The Style Salon decorated our exterior with seagrass matting, wooden hurricane lanterns and white rose bushes.
The amber crystal door handle on our front door is one of the original features we kept prior to our shop design. Olive trees regularly sit outside the door to greet guests & soften the entrance.
Photographer/Director Bradley Patrick enjoys a pre-party champagne with our studio manager Prue and Photographer, Lauren on Moncur Street. Taittinger were our main sponsor for the evening - a favorite of the SugarLove family.
Our window photography features the country wedding of clients Ros & Blake who stopped by for a viewing. Their wedding was featured in Bride to Be Magazine. We wish you the very best for the arrival of your first baby x
SugarLove/White clients Libby & Luke Trickett and Brianna Koch with husband CJ Jayasinghe join us in Woollahra to celebrate and toast together.
Candlelight softens the front window display and our main showroom chandelier provides a delicate ambient light for guests inside. The team from Wedding List Co enjoy their visit.

A perfect spring evening offered the option of celebrating both inside & out

The rockstars return from Japan. Perhaps the most well known SugarLove clients over the past few years - Glen & Amee Allsop as featured in many of our advertisements. Multi talented Glen (also SugarLove Photographer) and architect/wife Amee literally just flew in hours before the party from shooting Issey Miyake's home in Japan.
Annabelle & Emilie flew in from South Australia representing one of our favorite bridal magazines Wedding Style Guide
Bradley & I share a moment to reflect on the journey so far whilst studio manager, Prue enjoys a toast with Christie Hayes in the showroom.

Sometimes choosing just one location for your ceremony & reception celebrations provides the best of both worlds for the big day. SugarLove clients, Jodi & Jonathan found the perfect Palm Beach cottage for both their "i-do" and their ongoing celebrations. Bride to Be Magazine featured a lovely 4 page story on their day in their current November issue. After meeting in the Greek Islands, Jodi & Jonathan wanted to capture the same feeling with gorgeous water views on their big day. Adding white & silver details and delicate ivory/pink roses for the ceremony & bridal bouquet, the styling touches at Bay Cottage, Palm Beach were both subtle & personal on the wedding day. The girls got ready at the private residence on the day & Jodi surprised her bridesmaids with crystal earrings to wear with their grecian inspired apricot dresses from Bardot. The bride wore a stunning Lisa Gowing gown in ivory silk with a moulded sequined bodice. Jodi hand made most of the thoughtful decorations for the day which included cute letters that hung above their bridal table and turkish delight favors wrapped in fuchsia coloured cellophane. Hidden inside was a baby-pink coloured guitar pick with the words "Jodi picked Jon" - a homage to Jon's love of guitar. The couples flower girls Lily & Sabrina showered the way with petals to the gorgeous Pittwater ceremony. Soft pink & ivory flowers adorned the ceremony decking, a perfect backdrop for their "i do". The couples vintage vespa was a nicely decorated mode of transport for the photo shoot. The bride with her bridesmaid strike a pose into the sunset for our photographer Saffrine. The Palm Beach jetty and beach were the chosen locations for the couples photo shoot.
Jodi enjoys a splash in the water at Palm Beach before enjoying the party with family & friends.
The boathouse had just the right amount of character to frame the perfect bridal party shot. Jodi purchased the vibrant fuchsia & tangerine dahlias for each table which were named with Greek Islands such as Paros, Ios and Milos. The couple chose a casual buffet table for dinner. A relaxed, summery beach party vibe was enjoyed by the couples 50 guests. The two tiered chocolate mudcake with white chocolate ganache and marzipan icing was made by Batch Patisserie.
Thank you for choosing SugarLove to cover your day J & J, we wish you all the very best for many more summery moments ahead together, kindest regards Leigh & the SugarLove Team x
