As fate would have it

I tend to find myself heading out on a lot of 'blind dates' in my job. Meeting clients, wedding pro's and even sometimes awesome twitter and blog friends, where the web world and real world come sliding into one excellent reality. I'm always excited to see which twist of fate brings a connection into my life.

Yesterday I met Marissa, who found me through the ever resourceful Ms Polka of Polkadotbride.
I knew it was fate as she suggested we meet at a super cool cafe called Clipper (have you been? You should, it's on Glebe Point Road and has vintage bikes on the wall).
Marissa is a photographer and runs a studio called The simple things studio, she also collects props (see...fate). And even has a cute little old red fire-engine for kids to play on.

Sun spotlight anyone?

Yup, she makes camera shaped cookies!

Um, excuse me? I NEED to pinch those cheeks! So adorable

Have a lovely weekend.... xj

Mae Mae

Friends of mine just returned from an epic trip to the U.S of A, they had a great time and of course posted numerous awesome pics on Facebook (what did we do before FB? Slide nights?*).
Once my jealousy subsided, I got to thinking how fab a Miami/Art Deco themed wedding would be!
This invite set by Mae Mae Paperie isn't art deco (or even Miami) per se, but those cool colours and palm trees are kind of the vibe I see this theme heading towards.
Megan is one talented designer and stylist! I've posted some more of her work here, and she was recently featured on the Queen of all wedding websites here

*nope. That was our parents. Slide nights, cheese fondue and punch. What an era.

style shoot part two

Some more out takes from our shoot for the lane. 
Being extremely fussy, I didn't trust any ice-cream brands to colour match my scheme, so I bought vanilla ice-cream and gently coloured it, blue, green, pink and yellow with food dye.
Georgia is studying the blue in this pic, trying to determine if it is exactly the right shade.
Think I may have created a stylist monster!! Lucky she's so cute right??
