Styled Shoot : Fleur De Ballet

Styled Shoot : Fleur De Ballet

I love the fact that as a wedding planner I am tasked with the role of bringing a bride’s vision to life. There really is nothing better than knowing you’ve had a role in making someone else’s dream come true, but in order to keep up my energy levels, I figured out a while ago that certain aspects of one’s work should be the kind...

Oh Happy Day Brand Shoot

Oh Happy Day Brand Shoot

At the beginning of this year, my business rebranded with a new logo and website. Although the launch was successful, I felt the need to show potential brides Oh Happy Day’s brand personality in a way that words cannot portray. All my brand shoots involve pre-shoot production, where I research the client and find ways to express what each brand is about. All shoots will...

Styled Shoot: Wanderlust Forever After

When Katie (from Summertown Pictures) first approached me with the idea of working together on a styled shoot, it was very easy for us to design a theme that would work well and stand out, and one that we could both be proud of.  Katie wanted something romantic and alternative with a slightly hippy feel, while I wanted something bridal but natural, simple and organic. ...

Styled Bridal Shower: Tropical Heat

As I type this I can almost hear the rustle of the wind in the palm trees that line the grounds of the Salt Rock Hotel, which formed the perfect back drop for this styled bridal shower. What a fun shoot to coordinate and style! What’s more – a bridal shower is a nice diversion from the romantic shoots that Oh Happy Day normally loves...

Styled Engagement Shoot: Jane and Mark

Styled Engagement Shoot: Jane and Mark

Being engaged is such a special time for any bridal couple! I remember the first few weeks after Stef proposed… I was floating on cloud nine and couldn’t stop staring at my left hand. It was almost as if my engagement ring gave me super powers! I know it sounds ridiculously corny, but that’s exactly how I felt. If I was having a bad day...
