Last weekend we attended the Amsale NY Gala Event and met some lovely brides planning their weddings for 2011 and even 2012!! The dresses were absolutely divine. My personal favourite was the Ally dress (an elegant short strapless Alencon lace dress with sash at the waist). Congratulations to Angela Wilson for such a successful showcase.
Love Love Love these short dress inspirations found online at Dust Jacket Attic - perfect for a getaway wedding perhaps? I am obsessed by lovely shiny sashes at the moment!! Photos by Olivia Graham/InStyle Weddings
Getting ready for a "wedding free" weekend at SugarLove, enjoy yours x

Loving the new Polka Dot Bride site and found a sweet new little Rustic Wedding shop online which brought home many memories of our little log cabin in the Hollywood Hills. So many cute ideas for a rustic wedding or celebration event at the Whispering Pines site. Some inspiration for you - Mini Chalk Boards, Blackboard Arrow Plaque, Rustic Guestbook (in Bear or Moose design), Heart Zinc Tag, Mini Snow Shoes, Tin Lantern, Twig Votive Holders and Wooden Sailboats are just a few ideas for the perfect personalised day on a lake or in a boathouse. What about a picnic by a river or a log cabin in the mountains? Hope you are enjoying a getaway weekend somewhere special, Leigh x

Thrilled to be sending one of our team to another destination wedding this year. Lauren, our in-house photographer will travel to Lake Como, Italy for the wedding of Jess & Brad on Sept 9th. The 3000 year old history of Lake Como has left a heritage of castles, fortresses & towers in its ancient cities & villages. Noblemen entertained their guests in lavish castles that still exist today. George Clooney is one of today's famous residents.
Our couple have chosen Villa Passalacqua in Moltrasio - known as one of the most beautiful and historial villas on Lake Como. Constructed during the French & American revolutions the villa was given a neoclassical look with a simple exterior and elaborate interior.
Over the centuries the villa has played host to numerous musicians, artists, writers & statesmen including Napoleon Buonaparte, Vincenzo Bellini and Winston Churchill. We can't wait to cover this wedding!! To sense the romantic history of its past and imagine the voices that echoed throughout the main halls of the villa is truly a once in a lifetime experience.
We look forward to showing you all of the gorgeous pics from their day x

Everyone wants to make a statement in "The Dress" on their wedding day. I love this back detailing as featured on Dust Jacket Attic. One of our brides Kate chose this Lisa Ho design in blush pink for her bridesmaid dresses as featured in the May 2010 issue of Bride to Be Magazine. It would be equally as gorgeous on the bride dont you think! Photography by Prue Ruscoe for Australian Country Style Magazine.
