I’m so excited to bring you the first of a series of shoots from the recent ERICH MCVEY WORKSHOP held on the northern coast of California. We happen to be staying very close to here on our road trip next month which is kinda exciting as it looks amazing!! The lovely LAUREN PEELE sent over her incredible images of the ‘Whelve’ & ‘Arcadian’ shoots that were designed by visionary stylist GINNY AU. Everything this talented lady puts her hands to is truly beyond words and I’m loving the dress choices used in these shoots; their movement is so fluid and romantic. Ginny chose ancient words to design the shoots around and for these two different looks the words were: WHELVE: (v.) to bury something deep; to hide. and ARCADIAN: (adj.) idyllically innocent; simple and untroubled by fear or worry. Thanks LAUREN for sharing your gorgeous images with us!
I have another treat of a wedding by KATE ROBINSON for you today. With a timeless, neutral green & ivory colour palette it has a classic, yet modern and rustic feel to it all at once. Gemma from PS I LOVE YOU EVENTS styled the Matakana venue - PLUME VINEYARD RESTAURANT - with hessian table runners, wooden planter boxes, draping fabric and an abundance of gorgeous white flowers by Kelly at BLUSH FLOWERS.

We’re loving all the rich warm autumn tones in this shoot from Ellen at WESTCOTT WEDDINGS and photographer JEN DILLENDER. With a host of amazing vendors they spent a day at the beautiful HAWK’S SHADOW WINERY in Austin, Texas to create all this beauty.
From Ellen, “We have quite a few wineries and vineyards in Austin, Texas and the surrounding areas, but none with quite the view and beautiful land of Hawk’s Shadow! We’re entering summer here in Texas, which inevitably leaves us all wishing for the cool fall breezes that wait on the other side. With autumn on the mind and the vineyards as our backdrop, we set out to create a shoot that captures everything there is to love about winery weddings: rich colors, al fresco dining and wine - of course!. The deep colors used in the floral, place settings and paper goods lent a bit of moodiness and tons of romance and intimacy to the table. Looking at the beautiful pictures Jen took, it’s easy to imagine family and friends sitting around that table celebrating, toasting and talking until the wee hours of the morning.”
