It’s not very often, actually it’s incredibly rare, that I don’t post images the full width of my blog – I simply had to bend the rules for this beautiful Bohemian Southern California Wedding that I stumbled upon via 100 Layer Cake the other day, it’s far too stunning not to share. You might remember seeing the brides absolutely gorgeous Martha Webb dress a while ago in this Organic + Sustainable Wedding, there really is something so magical about a colourful wedding dress and the detail on the bodice and orange train on this is beyond breathtaking! There are so many amazing details about this wedding that are absolutely to die for – the venue is like a dream, the simple table settings with handpicked garden flowers and mismatched vintage plates is gorgeous, the rustic dessert table and heart back drop is so perfect and of course the crepe wedding cake looks too far good to eat. I couldn’t imagine anything more wonderful than attending a beautiful wedding like this, be sure to take a peek at 100 Layer Cake to see more of this stunning wedding. Oh, and Happy Friday everyone I hope you have a lovely weekend! x

Happy Friday everyone one, I hope you’ve all had a lovely week so far and have tucked yourself up somewhere safe away from this awful gusty wind that Auckland has been dealing with for the past few days! I have a deep love for incredibly crisp white interiors, our kitchen is a prime example as it’s all white. Although there really is something so romantic and charming about a beautiful rustic kitchen with heavy industrial furniture and fittings from LET LIV and of course decorated with some beautiful pieces - I’ve absolutely no doubt that if we ever renovated again we would have a lot more wood and earthy textures in our home.
Which is why I thought I would do a beautiful mood board of industrial kitchen pieces after seeing this pin on Pinterest, plus I’ve been swooning over the beautiful new range of kitchenware at Anthropologie has in stock at the moment! Their products are as stunning as always and I was so excited to learn that they now ship to New Zealand – plus they have the most beautiful selection of books, perfect for decorating and of course gifts, I’ve a feeling that my credit card is going to get a little bit of a thrashing in the lead up to Christmas this year! I hope everyone has a truly wonderful weekend planned, I’m off to spend the weekend away with my gorgeous family as my wonderful Grandparents have come over from Australia to visit. x

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a really lovely weekend! You’ve no doubt guessed from all of my photos of flowers that I’ve become a little obsessed with gardens lately – they’re just so pretty, and of course incredibly rewarding when learning how to become a green thumb pays off and your garden grows some beautiful blooms! To say that I’m completely head over heals in love with this stunning secret garden wedding by Feather and Stone is a little bit of an understatement – everything is beyond perfect and it really does look like something straight out of a Jane Austin novel or of course The Secret Garden it’s self! I’ve no doubt that if we were able to go back in time and re-do our wedding I’d have a garden wedding, it’s just so magical! You can of course see more of this absolutely beautiful wedding by Feather and Stone here. x
Today I had the absolute honour of delivering this gorgeous Chocolate and Vanilla Ombre Pallet Layer Cake to one of the loveliest ladies I’ve ever met for her birthday party this evening. Before we get to the cake, I simply must to tell you about the absolutely stunning mirrored cake stand I had the honour working with – it’s been in Tyler’s family for over 50 years and was even used by her Grandfather for his 21st and is now being used for hers, how gorgeous and lovely is that! I was so excited to make this ombre pallet cake for her, it’s such a gorgeous technique and looks amazing with the dusty pink peachy icing – which of course looks so lovely atop her family’s beautiful heirloom cake stand! Happy Birthday Tyler, I hope you’ve had a fantastic birthday! x
