    A Charming Old World Chateau Wedding in Australia

    What is it about the past that makes it so fascinating and romantic? Held in an old world French chateau, this wedding was a fairytale in every way, from the prestige classic cars to the elaborate couture gowns and the impressive floral arrangements. We couldn’t believe this was actually in Victoria, Australia. Every detail of this wedding put together by Ruffles and Bells was beautifully captured, and on analogue film too. Much credit to Lilli Kad Photography for these exceptional photos!

    European Dreams

    Europe has no shortage of amazing nature backdrops: from the contrasting hues of the azure blue ocean to the light blue skies of Santorini, from the opulent royal gardens to the mountains of Salzburg. The whitewashed walls and quirky yet whimsical sights of Santorini exude a glamorous yet slightly bohemian feel, while the quaint townhouses of Salzburg set against the majestic mountains paint a picture perfect setting.

    60s Style Glam

    This contemporary young couple in Shenzhen were determined to go against conventional wedding trends. For the gatecrashing ceremony, the bride wore a short, retro dress and a birdcage veil. She kept the guest list relatively small, turning the rooftop of The Langham Hotel into a romantic garden for their wedding, which was followed by an after party. From these photos that were beautifully captured by Chris Spira, one thing’s for sure: Vien and Michael look like they thoroughly enjoyed their big day. Weddings like this one are what we hope to see more.
