Who couldn’t go past the gorgeous Swarovski crystal vintage hair pieces the bridal party were wearing in the season finale of “Winners and Losers”. These stunning couture pieces are a combination of classic and uncomplicated designs using the most exquisite materials, are a must have for any bride on her wedding day. I fell in love with the Swan Lake piece featuring a sleek floral design and a pure fresh water pearl which would suit any bride or bridesmaid. The simplicity of the St Tropez band is its beautiful vintage couture style that can be worn in multiple ways to achieve a more ornate look. You can’t go past the stunning tea party band below which is currently featured on page 172 of the latest issue of Brides Of Adelaide Magazine, along with many other exquisite pieces that will sure to bring a sparkle to your wedding day.

Because glamour is an individual experience, a wide range of bridal gowns with bold contrasts of volume, rich fabrics such as lace, organza and heron have just arrived in Adelaide.  It is with much excitement that I had the opportunity to view the 2011 stunning bridal collection of the world's leading bridal house Pronovias Barcelona exclusively at Jenny & Gerry's Bridal House.  Embracing the desire of Fashion, City, Glamour, Ball Gown, Dreams, Style and Costura bridal styles, these exclusive luxury designs feature creative, imperial, classical and romantic silhouettes.   To view the wonderful inspiration behind this collection, check out the 2011 Pronovias Fashion Show.

The 2011 Pronovias Collection is now available to try on at Jenny & Gerry's Bridal House.  When you purchase one of these magnificent bridal gowns you will receive a FREE copy of the luxurious 2011 Pronovias Magazine.  Visit Jenny & Gerry's website for more information.


It could hang in a gallery and has a great abstract ethereal quality to it.  It is the depth of the artistic photographer that creates a beautifully done moment and I just love photographers that are able to reject tradition and embrace the new and unusual.  Artistic wedding photographers use amazing lighting and feature wonderful compositions to give images painting like qualities...they are shot in a way that showcases the love surrounding the couple, creating images that are stunning works of art.  Great moments are made stronger by the photographer's use of light; beautiful, serene and timeless...actions with reactions, moments and reasons is what sets artistic wedding photographers apart.  These photos below by Adelaide Photographer Ky Luu are some of my favourites, showcasing a distinctively timeless artistic vision toward wedding photography...

Fabulous Feminine Style

I just love Michael Bublé’s new wife, Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre's wedding dress below.  Luisana actually wore a trio of dresses for the couple’s two weekend wedding ceremonies! My favourite gown of the three featured below is a gorgeous satin bodice with a plunging neckline, plus a feminine tiered skirt consisting of layers of tulle and ribbons with silk thread embroidery. To complete her look, Luisana wore a pair of Christian Louboutin heels - absolutely stunning - definitely one of my favourites of the year so far!!!

Invite Delight!

I love wedding stationery and so I just had to share these gorgeous pics from the latest Invitations For All Occasions designs that were sent to me today. How divine are these...

Wedding Invitation Inspiration: Think chandeliers and crystal to bring a whimsical feel to your wedding invites.

Wedding Invitation Inspiration: Think traditional with a modern twist...for the brides who want to stay traditional yet want to inject a little more contemporary styling to their wedding stationery.  The sinching in at the bow adds a  modern feel to the invite with a more slimline, less structured and off-centre design. Simply stunning!

Wedding Invitation Inspiration: I love the look of block letters in type - the way it looks casey provides a highly creative and modern style choice and incorporating traditional script within the text provides an interesting variation of typeface.  This invitation oozes style and sophistication!

Keeping The Kids Entertained

On a special day such as your wedding, the question of children attending your wedding is always a tricky one.  Understandably, it's a long day for a child to sit quietly and behave and parents with babies and young children hesitate to leave their child at home with a babysitter.  That's why I love the idea of creating a creche that is as unique as your event.  Mobile creche facilities provide safe and areas for play and activities such as beading, painting, puzzles, board games, lego and much, much more Green Shoes, is Adelaide's most popular choice for child care to compliment your wedding. Chaperoning, activity workshops or babysitting can be accommodated at the venue, home or hotel suite, providing safe, fun, caring and stimulating environments for the children while you enjoy your function!

I just wanted to share these mouthwatering couture chocolate coated jumbo strawberries that offer the perfect alternative to the traditional wedding centrepiece. Chocolates and strawberries have always been associated with love and romance and there is no better way of bringing family and guests together at your wedding than with a stunning arrangement that is fun, indulgent and satisfies the senses of sight, taste and smell! Berry Pop offers an exquisite range of strawberries and dried fruits hand dipped in white, milk and dark couverture chocolate, set in unique arrangements to compliment any wedding styling. Strawberries can be accented with dried peaches, pears, figs and dates and each dried fruit can be decorated with coconut, spinkles, glitter, freckles, sugar butterflies, stars and gold leaf. These are some of the mouth watering berries we had the pleasure of tasting at one of our recent photo shoots - simply divine!

Hollywood Inspiration

When I imagine a swan, I picture poise, beauty, elegance and grace - all synonymous with any stylish bride and after seeing the movie 'The Black Swan' starring Natalie Portman, I was inspired by the true elegance and beauty of feathers.  I just love the simplicity and the sensuality that feathers bring to bridal fashion.  This ostrich feathered clutch I came across, with its beautiful long silky feathers and gold frame, is a beautiful statement piece for any soft and romantic wedding theme. And a girl just can't go past these magnificent sky-high Manolo Blahnik feather T strap sandals…paired with a bridal gown in a similar colour, you are bound to have a winning combination…
