Chic 1950s Inspired Melbourne Wedding

There is nothing I don’t love about Marina & Andy’s 1950s inspired nuptials – the bride’s long sleeved and tea length dress, the hand made brooch bouquets, the multi coloured bridesmaids dresses with fur coats, the huge sign of love at the reception and the fabulous photographs from NZ based photographic heroes Bayly & Moore….. the whole shebang is...

Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons #3

Third week in to Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons and I am about to break one of my rules by featuring two real weddings today….. but then rules are there to be broken! And there is no way I could not feature one of these two very special but completely different (and equally inspirational) weddings. 1. There are some weddings that...

Parisien Romance – Inspiration for a Dove Grey & Peach Wedding

Sometimes inspiration for a wedding palette comes from the most unlikely of places!

So of course I had...

Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons #2

I am loving this new feature, the only problem is keeping to my self imposed limit of just 5! 1. There will be no apologies for featuring another post on the beautiful collaboration of Claire Pettibone with her Beau Monde collection and the exquisite photography of Elizabeth Messina, this time on Elizabeth’s divine blog Kiss The Groom….. I just can not get enough of...

Fabulously Retro Melbourne Wedding

I first spotted this decidedly funky retro wedding on Ruffled, and following my You Are My Sunshine post last week, featuring some fabulous tea length wedding dresses, I didn’t hesitate in asking the incredibly talented photographer Stewart from S Leishman, if he would kindly allow me to share his gorgeous images on CVB, and well, here they...

You Are My Sunshine – Inspiration for a Yellow Summer Wedding

Following my Cranberry Christmas post, I wanted to create a more southern-hemisphere seasonal inspiration board, for brides-to-be planning a Summer wedding. Inspired by the Hawkes Bay sun (which admittedly of late seems to have taken a holiday of its own!) I am loving this vintage yellow…… Bow Clutch – Etsy, Flower Necklace – Etsy, Platform Mary Jane Shoes via Pinterest,...
