Hello SugarLove blog friends....if you have been wondering where we have been well here it is - we are ready to share the behind the scenes pics from our "Red Carpet Opening Night" event in Sydney to celebrate the inaugural SugarLove Masterclass - what an amazing evening...it is safe to say we now have a far greater appreciation for anyone that works in event management...wow 4mths of prep and there were still so many little details to organise right up to the night itself.....you are all amazing & thank you so much for your support and tips leading up to such a special occasion for SugarLove...officially here is our thank you to all our wonderful partners & friends
We were so thrilled to have chosen the perfect venue for our event The Royal Automobile Club of Australia. The history & charm of  the Victoria Room and sheer opulence of the Macquarie Room were a perfect fit for our Principal Photographer Bradley Patrick to showcase his 18years of experience for the first time. The attention to detail throughout the event styling, florals & set design by Alicia and her team at Form Over Function was a perfect fit for the event
Australia In Style provided a glam vintage car transfer for our Bride to Be Magazine "real couple" winners. A special treat to be dressed by Bowie with shoes by Terry Biviano for the evening
Oh how we do love our home city of Sydney, the moonlight reflecting on the harbour was magic
