When I first saw this Monique Lhuillier Scarlet dress I knew it was ‘The One’. I immediately fell in love with the backless feature and the vintage lace. Was romantic, classic & alluring all in one. If ever a dress could describe my personality and style – this is ‘IT’!

Kept the jewelry minimal and simple with these amazing pieces from Emily Anne`s Collection. I originally picked a beaded cuff but decided against it as I wanted the dress to shine.

I was really inspired by the bouquet Kate Moss had for her wedding. The style is very much the ‘hand-picked’ vintage feel. Small in design, compact and hand-tied. I opted for white and pale pink roses and kept the stems medium length. Was so perfect, words can’t describe.

There was much conflict in deciding to wear a veil or not. This issue was magnified by the fact that I was wearing my hair out (& I was not changing my mind). In the end I decided to wear a mantilla style veil by Melbourne designer Richard Nylon. The drape was perfect over my ‘hair-out’ situation & the sheer cathedral length elongated my body. I chose to wear it at the front of my head so the edges would frame my face. It exuded a sophistication and a timeless quality. The dress was not overpowered but if anything enhanced.

These champagne glitter Jimmy Choo sandals were love at first sight. I only wish I bought them at an earlier stage to save the stress and time for trying to find an alternative.

It all came together so perfectly in the end.

The inspiration behind my hair and makeup was simply my ‘everyday’ look but enhanced. It was important for me to look like “me”.
