FOLLOW THE SUN!
Dreams come true at Sunset, right? We certainly think so with these dreamy beach shots of our beautiful muse in the gorgeous ODETTE gown, captured by the amazing Alicia Abbott Photography.
The ODETTE gown truly is a dream made reality. Layer upon layer of ruffles in the skirt seem to float over the sand as the sunset glow plays over the dimension of the carefully appliqued bodice.
The stunning bodice of Silk Organza features a dramatic two-layered peplum that floats beautifully and is embellished with exquisite hand applique. Each piece of the delicate French-corded lace is placed and attached by hand with the utmost care.
An absolute favourite of the designers and the perfect look for a dramatic entrance that will NEVER be forgotten!
Footprints in the sand, rolling waves and the sea breeze blowing through soft clouds in the sky at sunset. The perfect dreamy setting for the perfect dreamy day.
Of course, ODETTE wasn't the only one to get a dream date at the beach!
We simply HAD to take advantage of this setting sun with a few of our other gorgeous creations, including SOLEIL, PEACH and the ever popular LUNAR gown.
Sunset on the beach and the most beautiful gowns we could imagine, what more could a girl want?
SOLEIL reminisces on the sunshine hitting the sparkling ocean with it's subtle sequin coverage. A beautiful soft fit-to-flair silhouette makes this gown the perfect figure hugging statement. Featuring a shaped bust line, multi-way strap ties and the most incredible matte sequin fabric with a Moroccan style print this incredible gown is sure to turn heads.
The divine, delicate LUNAR gown has been so popular before the collection was ever released. Featuring beautiful off the shoulder sleeve, soft draped bodice and cascading train and covered in scattered pearls, it’s a gown that features in our wildest dreams.
HARLOW in peach creates a stunning illusion, covered in a gorgeous linear sequin design. Featuring darling full sleeves and plunging neckline, this sequined piece is one that will never be forgotten!
When images of our gowns land in our inbox like this we literally SQUEEEL! Have you ever seen anything so beautiful! We’re absolutely in love!
Seeing our glorious LUNAR gown walk the streets of Havana Cuba, with the incredible talents of Camilla Kirk Photography in toe, the results are nothing short of #DREAMS.
Ever so delicate the gorgeous Lunar gown has been so popular before the collection was ever released. As seen in Miss Universe Australia this is an absolute dream dress. Scattered with pearls throughout the entire gown. With it’s beautiful off the shoulder
sleeve, soft draped bodice and cascading train it’s a gown that features in our wildest dreams.
Havana has our hearts. Full of vibrant colours, oozing history and a taste of adventure. How could the Lunar gown find a more beautiful place to be worn?
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.

Working in the fashion industry is such an amazing thing; One minute your rubbing shoulders with fabulous couturiers of Paris or drinking champagne amongst the world’s most beautiful people and the next you are donning an "Oh-So-Fabulous" snorkel and mask to create an amazing Underwater Series.
I am talking of course about my recent collaboration with the amazing Beth Mitchell, her work is something to rival the best our country has to offer and at such a young age she is such a wondrous talent. I feel very privileged to have worked with her on such an elaborate project.
Our fabulous team for this shoot consisted of five gorgeous models Keely, Yani, Emma, Isabeau (all Viviens) and the gorgeous Isabelle Faith (Dallys) whose divine face graced our television screens in Australia’s Next Top Model. Our amazing makeup was the work of unyielding Fiona Claire and whimsical hair by amazing talent Hannah Wright and of course all Couture Pieces worn by the models are custom Begitta. The final outcome of the shoot really speaks for itself, Beth’s astounding talent and the remarkable talent of the entire team shows. So without further ado….
