Rustic Wedding Inspiration – A Wash With Sunshine from Ruffles and Bells

If you are still looking for some inspiration for your summer wedding, you’ll love this beautiful rustic summer shoot styled by the lovely Ruffles & Bells and captured beautifully by Qlix Photography. I’m loving the fresh lemon yellow, white, green paired with touches of gold that are just perfect against the back drop of Australian greenery, not to mention the gorgeous natural lighting from the golden Australian sun. And the beautiful lace and beading details from the Anna Campbell gowns and the sophisticated table layouts adorned with fresh florals by Le & Fothergill? They just top all the pretty.

Eliska of Ruffles & Bells shares, Fresh and pretty are two words best to describe the inspiration behind this shoot. I was really stoked when Jay from Qlix Photography approached me for a shoot to be shot in film. I’ve always loved film photography! The softness and romantic feel brings the perfect sweetness for a wedding style matched with the Australian sun and gorgeous Anna Campbell designs. Together with invitations designed by Paper & Style Co. featuring duck blue colors and cursive font welcomes the style in a rustic feel. Adding freshness from florals by Le & Forthegill, we imagined a setting soaking under the warm sun rays gathering around crystal glasswares, silver cutleries and white washed furniture. The idea behind the dessert table was the same. It’s rustic and effortless and what best to execute this with some scrumptious naked cakes by The Dessert Parlour topped with white blooms and paired together with cake jars and lemons. A color palette of lemon yellow, white, green and touches of gold sets a beautiful inspiration for any summer wedding.”

Let’s Wrap It Up!

Happy Friday peachies! How has your week been? To say mine has been chaotic would be a total understatement. The hubby, peach and I moved out of our flat this week so I have been packing, packing, packing and packing. As you can imagine, packing up the past nine years of our lives with baby in tow has been a giant nightmare so please forgive me for keep this one short. Have a lovely weekend peachies! I’ll be putting my feet up and enjoying a packing-free weekend! Xx

An Animated Love Story from Soymilk Studios

Today we’re sharing another beautifully unique animated video from Soymilk Studios. Nina and Paul wanted a video to show their wedding guests the tale of how they fell in love and very wisely approached Soymilk Studios to help them out. Their lovely video tells of their travels between Australia, Papa New Guinea and New Zealand – how after a long-distance relationship, Paul proposed on top of a snowy mountain (how romantic!) and of course, Nina said yes and the rest is history! I can’t think of a more special way to share your love story with your family and friends on your wedding day. Can you?

Be sure to check out some of Soymilk Studio’s other awesome films here, here and here!
