Allow us to introduce you to the stylish child of the purple family; mauve – with its grey and blue undertones- is the perfect hue to any wedding palette. Excelling as a hero colour or contributing to the deeper wintery tones of wine or marsala, mauve creates a lovely wedding ambiance while is modern, soft and oh-so pretty.

Mauve beautifully transcends from all aspects whether its beauty or décor. A pink mauve nail is great for the summer to fall transition while fashion elements such as shoes or bridesmaids dresses look great on any skin tone.

THE COUPLE: Rachel + Ryan


PALETTE: Pink, orange and purple to represent the beautiful colours of the sunset and symbolise that no matter what obstacles meet us along our journey through life together, the sun will always rise every morning, shining its beautiful light of new beginnings and opportunities upon us.

THE DRESS: I loved the sweetheart neckline, illusion lace across the low back and the softness through the bottom. I had always pictured wearing a flowy chiffon style dress with my hair down and flat shoes. I ended up choosing the complete opposite! Once I stepped in to Jenny & Gerry’s Bridal House and tried on this dress I instantly fell in love with it.

THE CEREMONY: When we visited Glen Ewin we just knew straight away that was the place. The ceremony aisle was decorated with little lace tins filled with baby’s breath and scattered wooden crates. Rose petals from my mother-in-law’s garden were placed in doily cones. A table was set up for us to pour colourful paint over a canvas. This sat alongside a lantern with a photo of my father who passed away. We chose the colours of the sunset and sunrise to fit in with our theme. It was the perfect keepsake to hang in our home and symbolise our wedding day.

THE RECEPTION: The Gatehouse at Glen Ewin Estate was exactly what we had always pictured for our reception. We loved the way the room was so open and overlooked the picturesque pond. The entire venue has this really peaceful, loving and mysterious feeling about it. I also fell in love with the zebra in the entrance!

THE DECOR: I purchased the centerpiece vases from an op shop (before we were even engaged!), and spray-painted them with a ‘glass looking paint’. The finish was a lovely reflective silver. I also created burlap table runners, which were placed with spray painted lanterns, butterfly name tags, love heart wands for table numbers and mixed jars of flowers. I made the welcome board, singing tree and table seating plan, which was actually a wall ladder with mismatched photo frames. The Kombi Photobooth from Snapple Photo Booths was amazing and a big hit! There was a line up the whole night and the photos in the album we received were priceless and definitely a good laugh. The owner Deb was so wonderful to work with and we would recommend her to anyone!

PHOTOGRAPHER: We were looking for soft, romantic and rustic images. Tamika Lee Photography captured exactly that! Tamika is so beautiful, humble, down to earth and really passionate about her work. She was fantastic at communicating and keeping in touch and by the time the wedding arrived we felt like dear friends, which made us even more relaxed on the day. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

Take your ceremony to new heights and frame the moment you become newlyweds with a structure that reflects the mood of your special day and adds that extra WOW factor. Wedding ceremonies are the most photographed part of a wedding – the bride and groom hold hands, exchange vows and share their first kiss and husband and wife, cameras are sure to be snapping away.

Work with a pre-existing doorway or a similar freestanding structure. To create the illusion of a trailing vine, secure each rose and lisianthus to leafy camellia branches. When hung on the moulding using adhesive hooks, they form a stunning design.

From natural foliage décor to bright, robust floral filled arches, it all comes down to personal style – he options are endless. Wedding arches also make for the perfect DIY project for you and hubby – why not even get the girls round to place the flowers once hubby-to-be has built the frame.
