Real Wedding - Sarah + Chris

The lovely Sarah from Paper + Lace Photography married her boyfriend Chris late last year. The wedding was held in Albany, WA and Sarah styled her wedding using a number of items from our store. Some of the products used included Paper Lanterns, Candy Jars, Ornate White Birdcages, Lace Parasols and White Letters spelling out LOVE.

Sarah's attention to detail is evident in the photos below and how gorgeous does she look in that blue dress! For more images of this beautiful day please see Paper + Lace's new blog.

New Dresses Instore

We're very excited to introduce Katya Bridesmaid Dresses to our store. Perth designer Karyn Koevort has put together a beautiful ready to wear collection exclusively for Bride + Groom. The range is very feminine and elegant, with an amazing colour palette to choose from. Dresses are available in either a soft silk georgette or silk satin.

The range has been made so that it is so easy for the bridesmaids to choose their dress - you simply try on the sample dresses instore, choose your size, choose your colour and we place the order for you. You can even choose different dresses but have them made in the same colour.

Katya Bridesmaid Dresses are a very complimentary fit to the beautiful Harvey + Ella Dresses that we also stock instore. We hope to hold a photoshoot soon to showcase our beautiful ranges, in the meantime here is a small taste of the Katya Collection.

We ♥ Paper Lanterns

To anyone who has visited our store it would come as no suprise that we love paper lanterns!!! Our shop is filled with so many different types and colours... you can be so creative with them. We have lanterns with a pretty eyelet pattern that come in white, candy pink, sunshine yellow and sea blue. We also have a range of square accordian lanterns and the popular battery operated lanterns that are just perfect for that outdoor wedding or party. Lanterns are just such a fabulous inexpensive way to decorate and you can use them time, after time. Here is just a taste of a few beautiful images using lanterns....

Pretty as a picture

A good friend of Bride + Groom is getting married in March and we were recently discussing with her the design of her bouquet and her bridesmaids. There are just so many beautiful concepts out there depending on your style and theme of the wedding. She wanted something a little different, that would fit with her ceremony that's going to be held in a pretty bush clearing/ garden setting down south.
More and more we are seeing gorgeous bouquets made up of unique combinations of berries, herbs (such as rosemary and sage), beautiful full bloom flowers and foliage like pussy-willows and olive branches. Another pretty touch is to fasten them with some vintage ribbon, or perhaps an antique brooch (your something old) or even some simple twine string.

The best thing about these bouquets is you can do them yourself!

A walk in long grass

Happy New Year to everyone. We hope you had a lovely festive period!

We thought what better way to start our 2010 blog than with a gorgeous inspiration board. We love the country glam look - overgrown paddocks meet oldworldly barns. It's a theme than looks beautiful anytime of the year - you can work in autumn leaves, beautiful fields of canola or the green, green grass that winter brings. We had trouble narrowing down what images to include, but I think you'll agree that the ones below are just beautiful! We're a particularly big fan of the jam jar idea, so much so that we have a number available in store that you can hire. They're so versatile you can display them with flowers (as pictured) or hang them from trees and fill them with candles.
