Well I hope you enjoyed last week’s epic tribute to Paris however I now have some more loveliness to share with you which is a little more recent and a little more local. Last Saturday bought the arrival of one of my favourite events on the wedding calendar – First Comes Love. I have been incredibly lucky to been part of the fair in 2011 and again in 2012 as the official photographer, and this year I was able to have my own display again amongst my peers in the wedding industry.
It is always nice to see familiar faces but this year saw a lot of new faces that are bringing their A game to the industry. A big congratulations to the masterminds of Studio Bomba who were behind the entire event. I stepped out occasionally to take some photographs and here are just a few things that caught my eye.
An incredibly thoughtful and delightful little display from Her Handpicked Harvest in the main dining hall.
I loved this styled drink station by Debra Hayes using smoked glassware.
I am determined to one day own a piece of Rohan Jewellery, perhaps something along the lines of these gems on display at the fair.
Loui Col Designs presented a gorgeous new range of gowns that were on parade throughout the day.
An exciting new addition was Type Hype with gorgeous letterpress options available for all sorts of parties.
Outside in the atrium were two ceremony set ups and this one was from Hire Society. Their new range of crystal glassware and drink containers were simply beautiful and got me excited for some elegant soirees soon to come in Perth.
Also on the lawn in the atrium was Her Handpicked Harvest showing new chairs and pieces of furniture ready for weddings this season in WA.
I was excited to see The Butcher, The Baker, The Stylist and The Creator’s display which included a cake display, a whiskey bar and this gorgeous tablescape with pomegranate placecards and glittery silverware.
Of course a lovely display from Mitchell & Dent and their current range of stationery. Their watercolour invitations are some of my all time favourites.
This incredible cake from the Red Bird Cake Company was just one incredible creation in their display. I fell in love with the flowers cascading down the side.
Of course I had my own display on show at the fair. With a selection of albums and lovely folios on display, I had a great day meeting new brides and even having a visit from a few of my brides getting married this season.
I mean, c’mon! A Wedgewood inspired cake from Cakes by Dark Cherry? I’m sold!
My friend Rebecca from Fox & Rabbit had her display in the main dining hall and it was a gorgeous representation of who she is and her love of flowers.
The ladies from Machell Styling and Whiteman Park Print Shop came together to create this stunning, modern, colourful tablescape that couldn’t help but catch your eye as soon as you entered the dining hall.
Also from Machell Styling was this enormous drink station just waiting for brides and grooms who had worked up a thirst.
Mkay Bow Ties were immensely popular for grooms looking for an individual approach to their wedding and it was a delight to see Michaela’s adorable display of her wares.
This beautiful bouquet arrangement from Zinnia Floral Designs was truly the perfect representation of spring.
On the other side of my display was Sarah from Heart Strings and Pretty Things who I am excited to be working with later this November in a wedding down south.
And lastly, some of the lovely models in Loui Col Designs having a ball.
If you took the time to stop by and say hello, thank you so much! I’d love to hear from you if you want to start talking about your wedding plans 🙂
