Wow where did November disappear to? Traditionally November is the busiest month of the year for us at SugarLove & White and this year was no different. We have covered some incredible weddings & we look forward to sharing them on the blog. These are two of the sweetest pics from our wedding with Stella & Paul in Elizabeth Bay.
Enjoy this last November weekend before summer officially arrives x

We are super excited to share a new wedding with you that appears in the current issue of Bride to Be Magazine for our clients Anna & Quang who live in London, UK. Their wedding took place in Sydney on January 2nd 2010.
Anna's brother, a graphic artist, created the invitations. The rounded edges were chosen to tie in with the elegant vintage theme on the day.
The brides prep took place at the Fraser Suites in the heart of Sydney CBD.
Anna's gown had an elegant mermaid silhouette & floral embroidery by Pronovias.
Our crew found some interesting urban backdrops for the dress.
Anna's shoes were by Badgley Mischka ....ahhh...dreamy shoes!
Gorgeous Chloe was super sweet as the official flowergirl and nephew Nicholas made a handsome pageboy.
The groomsmen open their gifts from Quang pre ceremony.
Elizabeth Bay House made for the most spectacular ceremony location.
An eager groom and excited flower girl & page boy await the brides arrival.
Anna's bridesmaids wore romantic full length champagne coloured chiffon dresses with sequin embellishments by Myer.
A spectacular entrance down the interior staircase at Elizabeth Bay House.
Our senior photographer, Glen captures some stunning moments throughout the day for SugarLove. Anna told "Bride to Be" magazine that video was one of the hardest decisions to have or not. "When i found White Designs and their impressive portfolio of superstar wedding coverages, I knew they'd do the best job", says Anna.
A staircase fit for the glamourous long veil that Anna chose on her day.
I do, I do, I do love you. The sweetness of Anna & Quang just post ceremony.
The brides bouquet was made up of pink, champagne & white David Austin roses by Blissful Flowers.
Rain could not dampen the spirits on the day. The bridal party make their way to the reception at Quay Restaurant on Sydney Harbour.
Good times during the bridal party shoot in the Rocks.
The most perfect background and delicate light appeared after the sun shower.
Anna sourced letter stamps from Kikki K as a modern take on the traditional guestbook for signings at the wedding. Brown recycled paper was available to use which they plan to make into a lovely book in the future. The welcome table featured a cute "Just Merry & Married" sign, vases of David Austin roses, vintage cards and a cute photo of the couple from their first Valentines Day.
The reception tables were decorated with vases of rose, white wooden table numbers, candles & bomboniere of mini cupcakes made by the groom's cousin.
The beautifully illustrated menus were titled - Eat, Drink & Be Merry
An old fashioned microphone, yummy dessert & the wedding program. Titled the "Q&A Times", Anna & Quang provided their guests with all the details of the day along with some sweet stories including the proposal moment that took place in Cimbrone, Italy.
The First Dance was stamped for future guest book designs.
The wedding cake was made by Cake Occasions with sugared flowers, ivory ribbon and a vintage brooch to match Anna's gown and bouquet.
A perfect January evening looking across the harbour at the Sydney Opera House. Living in London now to show their guests the best Sydney had to offer was an important part of their wedding choices.
Thank you so much for choosing both SugarLove & White to cover your day Anna & Quang. We loved working on your wedding & your creative ideas were a perfect fit for our visions of making your day such a memorable occasion. All the best, Leigh x

We are so thrilled to share our White Designs Signature Video edit with you. Stunning Australian Magazine "Real Weddings" will be featuring the photography in their June 2011 edition. We can't wait to show you what an extraordinary event we were privileged to cover. Make sure you share your thoughts on the video here at our SugarLove Blog x

Always love it when we discover a new location for a wedding in Sydney. As anyone that has visited our showroom (or) read our blog will know - i have a not so secret obsession with everything Hampton Style. You can imagine how excited we were to cover our first wedding at what can only be described as the closest to a Martha's Vineyard style venue in Sydney...introducing....the Breakfast Point Community Hall. The word "community hall" really does not capture the essence of the buildings' design or interior appeal. Our gorgeous clients Cynthia & Jonathan below were smitten with the location (and each other!!) and so are we...looking forward to our next visit to Breakfast Point.
Congrats Cynthia & Jonathan! Working with you has been divine x

Dont forget the little ones at your wedding. A nice comfy pillow or colour themed cushion is a welcome resting spot. We love this moment from Annie & Paul's wedding at Bradleys Head, Mosman just after their "i-do".
