It's a gift


Gift buying is, a gift. Really. 
Not many people are gifted with the gift of excellent, appropriate gift buying.
(I'm having a Dr Suess moment right there....)
I'm guessing this is why the wishing well is so popular at weddings these days.
Begrudgingly guests pretend that they're ok about handing over cash.
But really, they're not.
Guests would be so much happier to send the newly wedded couple off into a life of happiness with a gift that will be treasured and forever remembered.

Case in point: 
My mother in law has a plastic pink sugar bowl. It is ugly. And at least 35 years old, but EVERY time we sit down for a cup of tea and said sugar bowl is bought out, we are told the story of how they received it as a gift at their wedding. (Treasured & remembered right there)

Soon to launch new kid on the block, From the Owl is breaking down the idea of a traditional gift registry. 
And throwing into the mix worthwhile and un-dust collecting wares such as Pony Rider goodies, Creme bicycles, and i pads.

Pop up shop

Working on an exciting wedding that's coming up on the 1st October. We're running with a palette of yellow and white with shades of grey thrown in for good measure.
So, as always my radar is tuned to anything and everything that fits the brief.
( you know when you buy a new car, and all of a sudden you see that same car EVERYWHERE!?)
Danni over at Oh Hello Friend is also having a yellow moment.
You can find these great decals at 5 bucks each over in her pop up shop.

Oh and I'll keep you posted on the wedding. It'll be shot by Trish at Tealily. 
With Aleksandra providing some floral wonder. Hooray!!

Hunter and the hunted

It's always great to see things from a different perspective don't you think?
In this shoot we have the talented photographer Nadean becoming the photographed!
Nadean and Ed  were recently married in a gorgeous castle in Ireland
 (watch out for those pics by Sugarlove).
Before they left,  Jenny Sun shot these light and laughter filled images of the two of them loving it up in Centennial Park, Sydney.

Enjoy xx

Cute right! 
Would love to hear from anyone that has had an e-shoot or love shoot done. 
I think they are a great, natural record of such a fun time in your life.

Props and styling by oscar and ruby

p.s don't worry Nadean didn't fully take off her photographers hat. 
Had to get the ok on which images to post before I hit publish. 
Thanks for giving me the green light on these Nadean!!
