Ever since Ben and I traveled through India for a few months in 2008 I’ve always wanted to attend a traditional Indian wedding. I love everything about them, the colour, food, noise, decorations, jewel toned saris and of course the wonderful amount of tradition that runs through the many days of celebrations – I could imagine it being just like India it’s self, completely overwhelming yet incredible in every way! Perfectly captured by the very talented Celine Kim Photography, this amazing wedding really is a feast for the eyes and sense. x
Happy Friday everyone, I hope you’ve all had the most incredible week so far! I’m beyond thrilled and so excited to be able to share a this stunning lavender shoot styled by the incredibly talented Casey from The Heirloom that I had the absolute honour of making a lovely tired petal cake for. I could gush forever about the dresses, flowers, stunning venue and of course the hugely talented people involved – the whole shoot really is far too perfect for words. x
Oh my goodness, I’m so excited to share a few little picks that I did for the very lovely Adore Home Magazine Blog! It’s such an honour to be able to do posts like these for such a lovely magazine and blog – if you haven’t had a peek yet, you simply must! Which item is your favourite? I’m a little torn between the floral maxi dress and cork and gold pencil holder! I hope everyone is having a lovely day so far and enjoying the slightly cooler weather. xo
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderfully lazy weekend. Is anyone else a little excited that the seasons are starting to change, even though we’re having the most wonderful summer ever I’m craving a little Autumn baking and curling up inside for a little bit. I could hardly believe my eyes when I stumbled upon this beautifully styled farm wedding by Ginny Branch, it has everything a party could want, beautiful favors, delicious sweet treats, beautiful flowers and of course the most gorgeous stacked pancake cake ever! I love that there is a perfect mix of pretty pastels and deep jewel tones throughout the whole setting – it’s simply stunning! x

Tonight we collected all the lovely items from On My Hand who have helped style this big event – including a special hand painted sign! We are collecting the rest of our new products from our amazingly talented screen printers tomorrow (nothing like a bit of a deadline to get the heart rate up), making some final amendments to our product booklets just in time to print and of course remembering to breath!
But enough about us – wedding season is in full bloom so this week we dedicated the weekly roundup to some fun finds for some colourful wedding accessories!

2. Looking for some fun accessories to hand out to your guests? How about some chevron pinwheels!
3. How fantastic is this wedding styled by Heima Store and Heim Interiors - loving all the colours and patterns!
4. These cosmetic bags make the perfect bridesmaid gift.
5. Who doesn’t love a yellow chevron table runner – hello happiness!

Goodness me, could this oh so pretty rustic backyard wedding be any more perfect?! Everything is styled to perfection, I’m madly in love with all of the soft pink hues, succulents and delicate baby’s breath throughout the wedding decor, it’s simply amazing - you might remember me featuring the baby’s breath ‘chandelier’ on facebook a little while ago, isn’t it incredible! I hope that everyone is having a glorious start to their week so far, I’m going to be spending today meeting a lovely bride-to-be about yummy wedding cakes and then having a girly afternoon with one of my gorgeous friends, in lead up to both of our birthday’s this weekend – I can’t wait! x
