Working with the gorgeous Gretty Rose to create her dream gown was such a fabulous journey. Gretty is such a special human, so sweet and lovely and she had some beautiful ideas of what her dream dress might be so over a little glass of bubbles and some delish treats we sat down and sketched up her dream wedding gown!
The perfect dress is just a consult away. We went over some inspiration, likes and dislikes, what we would like to emphasise (Hello Teeny Waist!) and perused divine laces to discover her favourite in a corded Chantilly lace.
The final result.... A stunning slim cut gown with exquisite lace detail. Beautiful modest cut v-front bodice skims the body flaring out to a fit-to-flair style fishtail. Focusing on cinching in the waist and stunning open low back that flows into svelt fit at the hips. Flowing from a fit to flair cut into a dreamy modest train.
We had the idea to feature a tulle overskirt belt to add that high drama, but decided a little later to keep just the gorgeous gown and make the train a little longer and a little more drama!

It's easy to forget about the world when you're surrounded by a sea of trees that seems to wash against a mountainous horizon. The leaves rustle like natures bells in the gentle breeze, lifting spirits and hearts to divine heights, the sun lends a dappled light to this beautiful refuge, making it the perfect setting for a hideaway wedding.
This divine shoot featured on To The Aisle Australia sent us floating amongst rich green landscapes and spectacular views of the Scenic Rim.
Featuring two of our stunning gowns ODETTE and STARRY it was hard not to lose ourselves in the love of the moment!
The divine ODETTE gown features a divine bodice of Silk Organza meticulously embellished with hand applique trailing down into a beautifully layered peplum, all floating over a skirt of softly cascading ruffles, to complete this romantic silhouette. Each piece of the delicate French-corded lace is placed and attached by hand with the utmost care. This dress sits in that magical place at the base of a waterfall, where the mist seems to gather in the trees like a soft cloud.
An absolute favourite of the designers and the perfect look for a dramatic entrance that will NEVER be forgotten!
Our dream STARRY gown provides a flowing, feminine silhouette. cascading to the floor with a high split providing movement without compromising the simple elegance of the gown. Scattered matte sequins float on a fine spider-mesh netting, reminiscent of the rising bubbles in a glass of champagne. This subtly sparkling layer drapes over an inbuilt slip, featuring a sweetheart neckline and shaped hem, adding both modesty and a touch of illusion. This dress reminds us of those beautifully simple moments shared with those we love.

The divine, soft palette from this shoot is almost too dreamy to be believed, like walking through a soft mist of daydreams. The perfect merging of industrial chic and soft feminine touches.
Pale blooms provide an air of feminine softness against the dim glow of candlelight, reflected in the glimmer of muted sequins. The Refinery's warehouse industrial feel merged with an ultra soft barely there styling in muted pinks and soft earthy tones.
A sneak peek into our upcoming collection the ARIA gown is the perfect choice for the modern bride.
The stunning Aria gown features a soft, muted sequins provide an almost-but-not-quite sparkle to a flowing silhouette as full bishop sleeves add fullness and balance. Paired with an open back and full train for a dreamily feminine gown.
We toned down the colour, but not the love in this stunning shoot featured on THE LANE.
Against the concrete walls of the refinery, this pale palette provides just a touch of warmth with the soft glow of candlelight. The industry locale of concrete and bricks finds itself immersed in a feminine glow, even in black and white.

EDITORIAL // The Last Summer Berry - Styled Wedding
Styled Wedding Shoot Featuring Begitta - Bridal and Couture FLEUR gown.
This absolutely stunning venue provided the backdrop for an insanely cool and modern chic wedding. With bright flashes of red and subtle nods of deep hues in blacks and purples.
As the sun sets over the hinterlands of the Southern Gold Coast the light sparkles through the leaves. The perfect backdrop for this incredible shoot of berry hues and lush greenery.
Amongst the rainforest-esqe seeing the incredible floral semi-circle created by Xavier Nicolle Flowers.
"The final days of summer were drawing in, the berries ripe, and the leaves were clinging to the branches. It was coming closer to the time where we all switch our margarita to a full bodied red!
We made the most of the last sunshine - seating guests among the trees to feast on earthen plates hand-fired by the local potter, gold cutlery, and luscious raspberry-red blooms. The bride's caped gown seem to speak to the breeze, and flowed so loosely behind her -untamed. Her make-up rich and opulent.
The naked tipi, found foliage ceremony circle, and hand-painted watercolour stationery belonged to this wilderness, and it was still so unexplored.
Those involved with this creation perfectly harmonised together to create the ultimate embodiment of an earthy, enchanted, mature summer day which seemed to teeter precariously on the edge of Autumn."

There is something about copper that catches your eye in a way that gold and silver can't quite do. It's a modern metal that gives off a chic vibe, but can still be styled to look elegant and romantic.
Paired with rich Autumn hues, a touch of industrial flair, and delicate, feminine details, this whimsical display coordinated through The Wedding Playbook created a scene fit for a contemporary and beautiful wedding.
For this Modern Copper scene shot by the amazing husband and wife duo at Raconteur Photography, our model Karli was styled in three arrangements using (insert the shoot's pieces here).
Her lovely hair and makeup was done by Velbella, with styling done by Gemma at Inspired by Love Events! Karli also adorns some sparkling accents through her earrings and ring, thanks to Starfire Diamond Jewelry. The result was a modern but dreamy bride, mixing traditional and contemporary pieces beautifully.
Kylie at Creo Design Invitations starts us off by making dazzling marble-inspired stationary, which matched the marble chargers, cutlery, glassware & plateware done by Brandition. They made an already charming dining table into an enchanting dinner setting sure to render guests speechless!
The flower arrangements created by New England Flower Co. were essential in pulling together all of the different elements. The rich hues contrasted beautifully with the marble, concrete, and copper and added pops of romantic color to the scene. Not to mention, they also made the gorgeous white gowns the star of the show!
Berry Vintage provided plenty of vintage flair for some balance through the peacock chair fit for a queen, and the exquisite rug laying beneath it.
With so much style and harmony in this gorgeous display, this bride is ready to enchant her guests and show everyone a magical wedding.
