SWEET FAREWELL TO PRUE

Many of our readers would know Prue our White Designs studio manager throughout all their visits & phone calls at SugarLove. After four incredible years with the company... today is her last day before she ventures out into the big world of commercial production management. With any new chapter in life & business it comes with a whole myriad of feelings... so it is with this post that I hold back the tears and savour all the wonderful moments we have shared together as a team at work
& play...



Prue started with the company as a production assistant in our Advertising Area (SugarLove Inc) and moved over to White when we merged it with the SugarLove Weddings brand in 2007 and what a rollercoaster it has been. We moved to our new showroom in Woollahra in 2009 (feels like we have always been here) and expanded our destination wedding area at the same time. On a personal note she has been a much loved friend for our 2 little boys (Maison & Lewis) since they were born in 2006 & 2008 and will be treasured as a friend for many years to come. It is with this behind the scenes snapshot at some of our favourite times together that we wish her the very best for a highly successful and rewarding career (of course we know you will be back to work with us on the first feature film Prue!!!)....

With much love & fun always & forever.....Leigh, Bradley, & the entire SugarLove & White teams xx

REAL WEDDING - EMMA & JONATHAN

The January summer ceremony for Emma & Jonathan took place at the private family home in the Eastern Suburbs. When I first saw the pics they had a distinct regal "Father of the Bride" feel to me...love that film & love the styling throughout.
Emma's parents below enjoy the sentimental bridal preparations.
The interior was decorated with white Tiffany Chairs & vases of white roses in bloom. The smell was divine.

A traditional piper welcomes guests outside the family home.

Emma & her father arrive for the couples i-do. The bride chose a dress by Vera Wang from Helen Rodrigues.
Emma said "Helen was a star, incredibly good at her job & so patient".


Such an elegantly stylish i-do dont you think!


The couple enjoyed a lovely pre sunset celebration outside in the gardens with their family & friends.

The pine trees were a great backdrop for our photo shoot.

Class all the way for Emma & Jonathan with a stylish reception at Catalina.

Grandiflora showed why they are one of the best in the business looking after the flowers on the day. Emma says " Saskia Havekes was an amazing talent. I wish there was a Saskia in London".
The couple are welcomed for the evening at Catalina.

Summertime on the deck does not get any better for photos.
Great music, delicious canapes and sentimental favourite wines.


Delectable desserts & favourite scents complete a perfect evening.


It was wonderful to work with you on your wedding day & we love all the moments captured by our Principal, Bradley Patrick. Wishing Emma & Jonathan the very best for their future life in London and beyond...the SugarLove team x

REAL WEDDING - SARINA & ERIC

When we were recommended to cover Sarina & Eric's stunning city chic wedding on the rooftop of the Rydges Hotel in Brisbane by one of Australia's leading wedding stylists we knew the event would be a glam affair in vintage chic style. View more of our wedding pics below & over 4 pages in the current winter issue of Wedding Style Guide Magazine on sale now. Bris-vegas here we come...Sarina prepares for the big day with her bridesmaids in Newfarm.
The Style Salon were flown in to create the incredible vintage chic theme. Thank you to Rouba for bringing us on board to capture all her works of art.
The couple chose to say i-do underneath a beautiful canopy of flowers.
Sarina chose to wear four different dresses throughout the day.
The softest colour palette of peach, pink, ivory, gold & blush were used throughout the flowers, light fittings, chairs, vases and candle holders.
Blue & White ticking tablecloths, gold tiffany chairs and crystal glassware adorned the tables.
The light was perfect for the photo shoot with Sarina & Eric.
The brides spectacular dress (number two) was by Elie Saab. The grooms suit was by YSL.
We love the delicate feather detail in Sarina's hairstyle for dress #2.
A romantic champagne toast for two on the bridal table. Sarina in dress number #3 with another gorgeous crystal hairpiece.
Intricate detailing on the wedding cake above & Sarina and Eric celebrating the cake cutting with a perfectly timed fireworks display off the rooftop.
The bride changed into a stunning midnight blue gown to party into the night.
Eric flew in Guy Sebastian as a surprise treat for guests and Sarina.
It was so much fun working on your day Eric & Sarina. We wish you the very best for a fun filled and exciting life journey together
