This moment was very special. @racquelle88 & @stephen_o86’s adorable bundle of curls came walking up to sit with his mum and dad, and they all sat and shared a very important moment in their lives together as a family. Beautiful.
What are these flower girls up to now?? Definitely on a mission. They had put on a great show with cartwheels and hand stands and now cruise past the chatting bride and groom as the band plays some awesome tunes @wisewine

Absolutely in love with colours in these flowers! Perfectly matches the theme and setting 😍
Oh you guys. I’m getting so tired of agonising over my social media accounts. Let me just preface this mini rant by saying I’ve been chaining Black Mirror while I edit now for a couple days. Show’s got me real triggered folks.
This “engagement” game is really wearing me down, as an artist and a business person. I just keep hearing shit like “share consistent, relevant content to boost your engagement” and “share things about your personal life so your audience connects with you” and “post at the right times of day to maximise your engagement” and at the end of the day, it all feels like a load of bullshit. Don’t get me wrong, I waste my fair share of time on Instagram, and engaging with people you like and with ideas you support is the shit, but I’m going to be the first to say that if you don’t connect with what I’m sharing, please don’t feel like you have to engage with it. I’m so over fighting to pull people in and keep them on this platform any more than they need to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if you’re a business person and you’re also feeling the pressure, just know that (at least I think) you don’t have to get the most likes on posts and views on stories to know that you’re selling a good product. Or are a good artist, or have great customer service. It’s okay. The number of people interacting with you doesn’t directly indicate how good you are at your craft. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m legitimately just trying to create something meaningful for my clients, connect with cool people and their stories, to stay artistic and inspired, and to provide a humble and healthy lifestyle for my husband and I. Worrying about my level of engagement from a platform that just profits the harder I try just feels like a waste of time and emotional energy. I know my product and service is good. I’m caring less and less what Instagram is telling me.
Comment 🙌🏻❤️💨 if you agree!
...Kidding. End rant, be on your way.

Me: “Let’s do a piggyback shot”
👩🏻: “Yes! I will carry him!”
There is something so chic about all of your bridesmaids wearing white. It is the perfect colour for your bridal party if your dress is heavily embellished or a blush/neutral tone. See my top picks of the non-traditional bridesmaid dress colour in my story.

I haven’t posted much this trip because we’ve been soooo busy + crappy internet, but this little gem deserves a shitty iPhone photo;
Yesterday we called into Marc Jacobs’ bookstore Bookmarc and I started chatting to the nice Aussie employee about how much of a superfan I was that I was mega bummed that we weren’t in NYC for his latest book signing event.
I was going to buy the book so he digs out this signed copy from the event he had hidden out the back and gave it to me 😭😭💖 Holy shit, it’s signed by Marc Jacobs and Grace Coddington, I can die happy.
He will probably never read this, but if you do; THANKYOU NICE AUSSIE MAN, it was the best day of my life. 💖💖💖 #givethatmanaraise
Ps. More real photos will come; I promise 😂✈️

💡 Cofetti photo tip 💡
Make sure your guests know how to throw! This might sound ridiculous, as everyone knows how to throw, but remember you only get one chance to capture your confetti moment. 🎉The lady in mustard definetly rocked it!!!! 😍

Weddings are at their heart a lot of fun, a great party to celebrate a love story. Confetti is definitely one of my favourite bits of the waving off from the ceremony! ✨✨✨✨

How cute are these flower girls??? I'm catching up with K+A in 2 weeks to design and finalise their album. Woo hoo! 🙌
I'm on a mission to have everyone's orders delivered before my own wedding so I can take some guilt-free time off without having any work hanging over my head while I enjoy being a Bride myself! 👰🏻 Eeeekkkk! It's getting so close!
This means if you've been thinking about booking in an engagement shoot, family portrait, ordering some prints, parent albums, or thank you cards, you need to get in touch ASAP! This also applies to new Couples wanting to come meet with me to book. I'm finishing up at work Thu 8th August and won't be back till mid Sep. ⏰
I know for some of you it might still feel like August is ages away, but with some products taking up to 6 weeks for delivery, we're almost there already!
Thanks everyone! Get in touch if you need to order something or book in a shoot/wedding 😘😘😘
One of the hardest parts about my business is the fact that I don’t really have repeat customers 🤷🏼♀️ which is pretty self evident once you think about it! 🤔 So every time someone recommends me, every like, every comment, every time you tell your bestie or your coworker or someone in the checkout at Woolies about this little boutique up in the Hills that sells pre-loved wedding gowns - it is SO appreciated 🥰 Word of mouth is so important and helpful for my business, so THANK YOU for taking the time - tell all the people all the things! 😘 And hopefully they react like this ☝🏻😂 All of these gowns shown here by @qniquebridal are available at my studio 🥀 photo taken by the talented @adamlevibrownephotography 📷
