Shiona and Chris’s Story: “Chris and I have been together for nearly 6 years when we married. We met during our university years and become solid friends. Over time, we realised how we… Read more »

At the end of last year I was lucky enough to get to work with a gorgeous Toowoomba bride, Katie.  Her dream was a simple but elegant country wedding with a bit of a 1960s flair to it.  We worked together to create an oh so cute 60s inspired dupion silk and organza short wedding dress with a touch of lace trim that I just love!!  To complete the look I also created a puff style flower for her hair… Read more »

Recently I received these lovely images from a bride whose bridal gown and bridesmaid dress I made a little while back (pre baby days!).  Shona chose a lovely short wedding dress that had a full organza overlay with cute little capped sleeves.  Underneath the organza was a layer of dupion silk which was made as a strapless bodice underlay and the skirt had lovely box pleats to give the perfect amount of fullness without being too bulky.  Then to add… Read more »

Recently I posted some happy snaps of one of my Toowoomba brides 1950s inspired dresses here.  Kristen had fallen in love with Audrey Hepburns wedding dress from the movie Funny Face, so we came up with a dress and veil that was very much inspired by this dress. Kristen was kind enough to take the time to send in some of the most spectacular pictures from her wedding day in some amazing Toowoomba locations along with the story of her… Read more »

Some of you may have read our little feature on Bella Stationery Studio recently – well here are some pictures of her very own wedding which incorporated her “Two Little Love Birds” range.  She also was one of my brides as I created her custom fabric flower bouquets in shades to match her colour palette. Our proposal: Adam proposed to me on our 6 year anniversary. We planned a weekend away to the beautiful Macedon Ranges in Victoria. On the… Read more »

Just in are some pictures from my gorgeous bride Amanda’s wedding in Toowoomba about a month ago.  Like so many of my Toowoomba brides, Amanda was good enough to come down every week for fittings for several weeks for her beautiful wedding dress. Amanda had fallen in love with one of Clarissa Grace’s wedding dresses but unfortunately that business was closing down so Amanda and I worked together to come up with the perfect gown for her, very much inspired… Read more »

Some of you may recall a few weeks ago I shared one sneak peek picture of Rebekahs gorgeous lace and silk satin gown.  Well after eagerly waiting I have received some absolutely stunning pictures of Rebekah in her dream gown.   Rebekahs gown is sweetheart neckline bodice with a lovely lace overlay and a dropped waist.  The lace edging on the top and bottom of the bodice was hand cut and hand sewn in place.   Her lovely floaty skirt… Read more »

I was fortunate enough to get to create my unique fabric flower bouquets and buttonholes for Jessica last year for her vintage inspired wedding.  It’s always wonderful seeing pictures from my bouquet brides as I rarely have the opportunity to meet with them when I am working with them.  To finally see a face to the emails and such a gorgeous face is just lovely! Jessica describes her wedding as “handmade budget” but it most certainly was vintage inspired as… Read more »

Shannon came to me seeking a really fun 50s style dress and it was an absolute must for her to have a matching bolero.  During the initial consultation she fell in love with the “cherry blossom” colour on one of my other samples so we created a custom design together incorporating a lovely fitted waist, a full gathered skirt with a soft sheer overlay and a matching bolero all in the soft cherry blossom shade. The Proposal: I was lucky… Read more »

After returning from her fabulous honeymoon in Peru, my stunning bride Kimberly has shared with me some pictures of her recent wedding.  She chose the 1950s style wedding dress “Ava” by Silver Sixpence but wanted a splash of colour so the contrasting sash and bodice inserts are in hot pink with an ivory duchess silk satin gown. Kim & Milans story: “Milan and I met in 2001 at work while going to university.  After a few months of hanging out… Read more »
