Lauren and her family have been visiting the Hawks Cay Resort in Florida every year since Lauren was little. She always said she wanted to be married here… and her dream came true. With close family and friends, Lauren married her sweetheart Peter of 10 years in a beautiful outdoor ceremony and poolside reception. With a stunning lace gown, soft grey shades and your token splash of bling, it’s as lovely as they come. There’s not much more I can say people, these gorgeous images by Kimberly Photography say it all!

I’m a huge fan of the Mad Men series – the cool 1950s era, the stylish fashion, and the intriguing characters…absolutely every bit of it! So, if there was a theme I would be jumping over the moon to see, it would be a Mad Men wedding theme. This gorgeous 1950s inspired shoot designed by Laura Lorraine Designs and shot by Randi Marie Photography, is full of Mad Men glam with a little modern twist and is shimmering with so much elegance, I’m sure all vintage brides out there will do a major double take. With a gorgeous tea-length lace dress, seriously pretty shoes, gorgeous jewellery and a mint green vintage suitcase I just gotta have, it’s a romantic dose of inspiration this MM fan is loving to bits.
Inspiration from the Designer: We set out to produce a one of a kind styled photo shoot to mirror the 1950’s (a timeless era), along with a Mad Men-esque modern theme. We hand selected the linens from La Tavola and these were the starting point of inspiration for the entire shoot. The color palette in the linens also complimented the elegance and ambience of the NOOR’s Ella ballroom perfectly. For the ‘Mad Men meets Modern’ theme, we chose dresses, provided by Alina Pizzano Couture Bridal to reflect the era and create a modern twist. Beautiful floral arrangements by Savvy Flowers added a pop of class to our tablescape. Sandra Nicole Designs, Crush Jewelry and Disco Toes added that little bling and the “wow factor” to tie together our model’s looks for the shoot’s integrity. Randi with Randi Marie Photography worked her magic to create a subtle yet beautiful collection of photos alongside SEP Lighting & Entertainment, which added to the beauty and essence of the Ella. Melinda with Cake Goodness, topped off the design with her beautiful, sweet creations and custom backdrop. All of this allowed for and complimented the design thought up and heavily fostered by Laura with Laura Lorraine Design.
Vintage inspired lacey undergarments and a heritage listed hotel (such as the Great Northern in Newcastle) make for a hauntingly beautiful Boudoir shoot. One that appears straight out of the pages of a vintage fashion mag, with a gorgeous natural beauty and inspiring images by Rebecca of Wanted Imagery. To put it simply: elegant vintage style + a red headed beauty + a talented photographer = Boudoir perfection.

Lace has always been a favorite for weddings and now the delicate lace doily is also taking center stage as a distinctive wedding decoration. Lace doilies give your wedding style a pretty vintage feel and when used creatively make a fantastic theme statement. This pretty shoot featured on Style Me Pretty last week by Cedarwood Weddings is a great example of how you can take one simple detail such as a crocheted doily and feature it as the theme throughout your wedding decor. With lovely decor ideas including outdoor banners and doily covered cushions, dessert buffet cupboards and pretty table settings, to sweet flower girl bouquet holders and pretty garter belts, there are plenty of ways you can doily up your day in style!
