Last month we worked with an adorable couple - Lauren & Alex who chose to get married at their family home with 4 year old daughter, Isabella. We love hearing we are covering weddings at home. I dreamed of re-creating that "Father of the Bride" vibe for our day. There is something so sweet about the memories that being at home brings to that moment of "i-do". Lauren in her beautiful wedding gown with black sash pre ceremony.
The couples little girl, Isabella was so excited to be a part of the celebrations.....the perfect little wedding planner....
We received the most heartfelt email from Lauren today...."I cannot stop looking at the photos, I honestly hold my breath every time I look through, they are beautiful......every shot just brings the whole day back to life"...
"Dealing with SugarLove has been my favourite part of the wedding organisation - everyone has been more than helpful"....
..."Apart from marrying Alex & having Isabella, using SugarLove has been the best decision I have made in a long time!"....
We were so thrilled to work with you too Lauren and wish you & your family the most wonderful future imaginable.....thank you so much for choosing us to cover your day, Leigh x

SugarLove have been working with Australia's premium gift registry Wedding List Co for many years now and are so excited to share the news of their new Edgecliff showroom. If you have not visited already you must pop in and see their fabulous fit out - 156 Edgecliff Road, Edgecliff (just a few streets away from us here in Woollahra!!)..... SugarLove clients now have the option of adding $50, $100 or $200 gift vouchers to their registry allowing for much greater choice post wedding for albums, framing and prints. Allowing our couples to focus on the most important decision "the photographer" means all the extra traditional studio inclusions can be separated to assist with the wedding plans......we look forward to many secret lunchtime visits to dream about all the gorgeous gift ideas at the Wedding List Co new showroom - hope to see you there!....

Happy Valentines Day 2011 and thank you to all the wonderful entries in our 2011 competition. The winner was Gemma Cocks from Lindfield, NSW who shared her gorgeous story about how she fell in love with one of her best friends. Happy Birthday for today also Gemma! We had so many entries this year.....over 700% increase from 2010 so it is amazing to see how many brides are reading our blog and how many have some really special stories to share. This year we decided to send out a runner up prize as well for this incredible story sent through from Kerrie from Burleigh Heads, QLD. Thank you for sharing your story Kerrie.... I met my valentine Ben in 1994 when we both worked for a manufacturing company in Sydney. He was 19 and I was 21. After dating a while his parents divorced and my valentine moved to QLD to help his mother get over her divorce and I remained in Sydney. We separated and were both in agreement that if it was meant to be then down the track we would be together. We never contacted each other and 10years went by. Ben was in Bali in 2002 on a buying trip for his South East Asian Furniture import business. He was in Bali on his own. He walked into the Sari Club to buy a bottle of water when a one tonne car bomb went off. He lost both of his legs and received more than 63% full thickness burns to his body. He was not expected to survive. It took several months after the bombing for the news of Ben being horrifically hurt to filter back to Sydney and eventually to me. Because he was not expected to survive it was all kept hush hush. Ben is Australia's worst injured survivor of the Bali Bombings. He was in a coma for months. It took me considerable time to be able to find Ben and make contact with him and eventually we met up with each other during his rehabilitation. I relocated to the Gold Coast to be with Ben and we married in 2007. Paul Mercurio from Dancing with the Stars flew to the Gold Coast and choreographed us a very modified bridal waltz that Ben could manage on his prosthetic legs. We now have a 4 year old daughter and have kept a scrapbook of us to give her when she is older. We wish Kerrie & Ben with their daughter the happiest of lives together, your endurance and love is inspirational to couples the world round & thank you for sharing x

Covering a wedding for one of your family does not happen every day...well SugarLove family that is! We were so touched to cover the wedding for our gorgeous Jessie on Jan 29th to her long time beau, Russell. A perfect summer day blessed the couple who celebrated their vows with the ideal sentiment..... .......Love doesnt need to be perfect, it just needs to be honest. It is when we can be as happy alone as we are with each other, for love does not really complete us. We are each as complete as we need to be, as individuals, so the gift that you bring to your marriage if the gift of yourselves. We are so happy for you both and wish you a lifetime of happiness and sweet memories. What a joy it has been to know you for so many years and celebrate this day in true SugarLove style. Lots of Love always, Leigh, Bradley & the SugarLove team x
