August 6, 2010


So thrilled to open the new August issue of Bride to Be Magazine and see one of our recent weddings featured and also used as the opening piece to the Your Day pages. Whilst we prepare for our destination weddings month in September it was also nice to see some inspiration for our upcoming Marrakech wedding in their new cover image. The grecian inspired photo shoot looks like it could almost be straight out of the Sahara dont you think!
To see more of our Kelly & Matt feature see the layouts below & behind the scenes photography & video coverage from their big day on our websites.
Kelly & Matt's wedding took place in March 2010 on a perfect Autumn day on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. The couple used vintage urns to display flowers at the ceremony & reception instead of traditional vases.
Family heirloom pens were used on the day. Chloe perfume & Oscar de la Renta shoes look lush on seagrass matting at the bridal prep.
Kelly was beaming from the moment we arrived at the family home.
Kelly wore the most stunning silk taffeta, strapless, ivory Oscar de la Renta gown from Helen Rodrigues. "This was the first dress I tried on and I loved it" says Kelly.
A chalkboard points guests in the right direction, bottles of Moet to toast in the garden post ceremony....a special surprise from the Mother of the Bride.
The couple were married at Stella Maris College Chapel in Manly. Groom to be Matt awaits the arrival of his stunning bride & greets guests.
Rustic baskets were used to hold the order of service booklets and nearby powder blue hydrangeas lined the entrance to the chapel.
The bridesmaids wore sage green strapless knee length Vera Wang dresses with a bow at the back along with hair clips and peep toe shoes (all from Helen Rodrigues).
Kelly & Matt are so sweet together. Matt proposed on a weekend away to Pacific Palms whilst enjoying a swim in the sea. Suddenly his favourite place in the world "the ocean" became even more of a special place for both of them to enjoy.
The bride's flowers by Summers Floral were a mix of white, ivory & pastel long stemmed roses held together with an ivory ribbon & a family heirloom locket given to Kelly's Mum by her Dad before they were married.
The girls carried bouquets of pink David Austin roses wrapped in a natural mushroom coloured ribbon to match their shoes.
An intimate moment shared by Kelly & Matt as husband & wife.
The jubilant bride greets guests on the way down the aisle.
Follow Studio worked closely with the couple on their stationery & other design ideas such as this cute "Just Married" sign for the drinks table.
A floral archway was the perfect position for photos - gorgeous flowers again by Summers Florals (A nearby neighbour of ours in Woollahra) !!
The perfect Autumn day to celebrate outdoors with family & friends.
Musicians & brown paper flower cones enhanced the natural style.
Ready for a getaway in the bridal car, Kelly's hairpiece suited the natural style of her dress & veil perfectly on the day.
Our photography team chose nearby Clareville for the best lighting and private options for the couples photo shoot on the day.
Kelly & Matt share a moment together before toasting with their friends.
The pine trees and calm waters of Clareville pre sunset on the day.
Some cute hair details on the bridemaids complimented the overall look.
The use of a hanging cane chair in a nearby beach house provided a nice relaxed setting for a moment together.
We even had a local chicken joining in for the pics on the day. Not sure what it is with SugarLove and animals on shoots - we promise we dont go looking for them!!
The couple chose Barrenjoey House in Palm Beach for its character & interior styling. We have shot many weddings here over the years and love to capture all the gorgeous details on display throughout the restaurant.
Cute raw linen ties on natural card stock menu header with little pegs.
Crystal glasses surrounded by candlelight made the couple feel like they were at home when celebrating the evening with family & friends.
The reception tables were decorated with white & ivory flowers in different size vases to create a natural elegant feel to the room.
The couple chose a 3-tiered white chocolate wedding cake from Sweet Art.
Matt had the most beautiful speech on the evening. Make sure to visit our White Designs highlight video fromt their night to see more.
A stroll under the moonlight marked a perfect ending to the day.
Thank you to Kelly & Matt for chosing SugarLove & White to capture their day. It has truly been a pleasure dealing with you both and all of our team wish you the greatest of happiness in your future lives together xx
