I don’t know about you, but I am already excited for Summer and Spring. Nothing says warm weather more than pastel colours. Which is why I love this combination of pastel pink and mint paired alongside with a sunny yellow and lilac. All these delicate colours make me think of a perfect Spring wedding… sun shining… a cool breeze blowing. Top this off with sweet pink and mint tones, pastel macarons and pretty florals, who wouldn’t love this colour combination? This board is making me so happy right now!
You may have noticed that things have been a little quieter than usual around here lately and I’m here to explain it all:
(1) The hubby, little peach and I have been busy packing up our life in Hong Kong as we prepare to move back to the land downunder next month! Yes, you heard right. Simply Peachy is heading home – back to Sydney – and I’m pretty excited (but at the same time horrified by the logistics of it all).
(2) We’re trying to tie up all the loose ends and the icky admin before we go which, as you can imagine, is oh-so tedious!
(3) We’re trying to see and spend time with all our friends and family to say our goodbyes before we go and that has been super sad and hard.
So, I’m sincerely sorry for not updating Simply Peachy as often as usual and for being extra slow in replying to emails and submissions. I’ll be in and out over the next month or so while I finish up here and settle myself and the family back into Sydney, so please bear with me during this chaotic time!
BIG thank you for your patience and never ending support. I can’t wait to bring you the new and improved Aussie Simply Peachy really soon! If you’d like to be a part of these exciting times or have a wedding, engagement or shoot to submit, be sure to drop me an email to see how you can get involved with Simply Peachy!
But for now, speaking of Oz, check out these gorgeous Aussie weddings and inspiration shoots from our archives!

If you are planning a wedding right now I’m sure you’ve heard about One Fine Day. Founded and curated by Sydney-based photographer Nadean of Photography by Nadean, Marissa of From The Owl and event stylist Jessica from Oscar and Ruby, One Fine Day always promises one hell of a showcase, featuring the most creative and talented crop of people in weddings. And believe me when I say they always deliver on that promise – One Fine Day is one of our favourite wedding events and it’s something I personally look forward to each year ever since its debut a few years back. Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend this time round as my big overseas move with the family clashes with the dates, but it promises to be the best one yet. I am totally bummed to be missing it as they have rounded up a pretty awesome bunch of vendors for this one!
A refreshing alternative to the traditional bridal fair, One Fine Day sets out to inspire couples who are getting hitched with a handpicked collection of sought after vendors, unique and amazing designs and DIY ideas. And also, of course, to introduce you personally to the most awesome crop of people in weddings! It’s the perfect event to find your dream team of wedding artists, not to mention a fun way to spend the weekend with your other half and bridal party.
This year, the fun fête will be taking place in Sydney from Saturday 7th till Sunday 8th February 2015 at Australia Technology Park and then in Melbourne on 27th and 28th February 2015 at the Royal Exhibition Building and lucky for you, we have double passes for each event to giveaway to two very lucky peachies! For a chance to win a double pass to either event, simply comment on this post with your full name and preferred city. Be sure to follow Simply Peachy on Instagram, where the winners will be announced. Entries close Friday 30 January 2015.
