Happy Bridesmaids

I knew that Twobirds bridesmaids are coming to Australia, but did not know when. THEY ARE HERE!!! Such a fabulous idea in a dress design to keep every bridesmaid happy. The dress does not need to disappear into the wardrobe after the wedding, it certainly can be worn as a cocktail dress over and over again! Wonderful website and so informative!

Blog exchange with Tammy

Once a month I will exchange blogs with a fabulous and passionate wedding planner from the UK. Tammy Willson, Director of Magic Dust.

Tammy enjoyed a successful career in national newspaper advertising in the UK (The Mail on Sunday & The Independent) and magazine publishing (New Woman & Grazia) for over 12 years.
She was the launch Commercial Director of Grazia magazine in the UK and worked on the magazine for nearly 3 years before leaving the industry in early 2007 to focus on Magic Dust.
Tammy is renowned for her incredible organisational skills, love of all things stationery-related and ability to build successful, lasting relationships with many different types of people.
Her passion for Magic Dust is evident to everyone who meets Tammy and it is this, coupled with a refreshing, simple and invaluable approach to wedding planning that continues to delight couples across the country.
Tammy lives in a house that she loves in Bedfordshire with her husband and 3 cats and hopefully I get to meet her when I fly over to Germany/Berlin in June.

Tammy's Blog for the month of March.
A big trend for 2009 - and a timeless one in my humble opinion - is the use of bows. Simple because we can all remember tying your shoe laces for the first time and stylish because nothing says sophisticated like simple, clean lines executed beautifully.

Bridal dress designers are using bows to great effect - check out Vera Wang's over-sized bow and Armani's abstract bow necklines are just stunning without being over-fussy.

There are so many ways to incorporate bows into your day but the key is not to go bow-tastic, one stunning bow element works best...

- personalise your dress by tying a sash into a bow around the waistline
- roll napkins and secure them with a simple ribbon bow
- accessorise your wedding bouquet with a simple satin bow (a la Mrs Willson!)

- use bows to decorate staircases or chair backs, with or without flowers

If you need help perfecting the art of tying the perfect bow, look no further than the lovely Martha Stewart and get practicing!

Lisa and Mark's Wedding

When I met Lisa a year ago, she told me about her wonderful ideas. See in what we created! So many details and she had fabulous dressed bridesmaids. It certainly was a feast for the eyes.

They got married in the beautiful St Georges Cathedral in Perth City. The Reception was held in the marquee from Frasers Restaurant. Melissa, the function coordinator and her assistant Mel were fabulous. So organized and helpful. Thank you guys and to all the team at Frasers!

The Invitation
There wasn't one flower in this wedding. All feathers and crystals. Unique!Of course I love my candy buffet, who doesn't! Just look at this one complete with a donut wedding cake! (made by Julie from Contemporary Cake Design)

Ready for the band with a custom made dance floor with Lisa and Mark's initials.

Natasja Kremers was the photographer. Thanks Natasja for the great photos. In Shot Productions was the Videographer and will share there trailer with me shortly. Thanks guys, working with you was fun and made the heat on that day bearable!

This is what I took just before I left. Matrix Productions did all the lights and smoke machine. Chris was working hart all night to create magic and he did a fabulous job.
