We were recently invited to Manly 16ft Skiff Club to showcase the Mina Mancini gowns in the most beautiful wedding ceremony venue, on the Skiff club lawn overlooking the harbour.
And what a STUNNING day it was, with a mini fashion runway, the FRESHEST oysters I have ever tasted, and we sipped on gin and juice...
Little lane events and Wildlotus decorated the venue spectacularly and the models showcased gowns by yours truly, and also Diane Lewis Couture.
Have a squiz at the video, I can't stop watching it!
I've made up my mind
Don't need to think it over
If I'm wrong I am right
Don't need to look no further
This ain't lust
I know this is love but
If I tell the world
I'll never say enough
Cause it was not said to you
And that's exactly what I need to do
If I'm in love with you
your eyes have burned the time to filigree.
Nothing is left of light's necessity.
Silence has interlocked us both in lace.
Great trees are fighting darkness for their space.
Eternal whiteness decorates the grass.
Leaves skim distance like ornaments of glass.
Is there a moon for such a heavy sky?
I think light breaks somewhere without a cry.
I Think Light Breaks
"I'm not a typical "bride", I dont want anything over the top, just something simple and elegant that makes me feel gorgeous" - MMC bride Lauren.
Possesing confidence, authenticity and a refined sense of style. She doesn't always have to play by the rules and wants a dress that reflects her personality and style. She's an adventurous traveller, a lighthearted sun-seeker, a partner-in-crime. She's LUCENT...
Whether your wedding reception is in an upscale hotel, or in a relaxed beach setting, a minimal style can look so effective. Here's the styling secrets revealed...
Ghost chairs, or even ghost cocktail tables will give your reception a clean chrystalline look. Pair them with glass vases with candles inside or metallic surfaces.
Got Any Whiter?
When it comes to your colour palette, the simpler the better. White on white upon more white is the signature minimal look. If that is too stark for you add a (tiny) splash of fern or contrast with metalics such as brass cutlery. But do it sparingly, remember less really is more when it comes to minimalism.
Earth, Wind and Fire
Use light and texture to create warmth in your minimalist style. It doesn't have to be clinical and this will inject some personality into your settings. Use sheer white drapey fabrics that will blow in the wind and create points of interest for your guests, use it over a wooden frame to create a canopy lounge area. If this sounds expensive, do not despair! Ikea have some sheer curtain options that will not clear out your purse, and some fabric wholesalers such as E.M Greenfields in Sydney sell to the public.
And nothing says romance like candles, but again, keep it simple. Forget the oversized candelabras of bygone eras, simple white candles in glass vases feel ambient and opulent, and are great for the purse strings!
