Another year - Farewell 2013!


Well, it's been quite a while since my last post as crazy-wedding season has hit once again and my brain space has been a bit full to write a post!

I want to take a moment to thank each one of you who are currently reading this post and have read/followed my blog posts and business ventures throughout this past year. Your constant support, words of encouragement, Facebook "likes" and positive feedback mean so much to me. I love getting to create pretty things and share them with you all, in the hope that I can brighten your day or inspire you to get your own creative juices flowing!

Some of my business highlights from this year have been getting to work with Brides of Adelaide magazine once again, creating my "Treasured Sweetheart" bridal lace collection and the photoshoot I organised for it.
Here are some of my favourite images from the collection & BOA magazine:wedding jewellery and bridal hair jewelry

Brides of Adelaide Magazine

The year 2013 has been a great year, and I have loved getting to be creative and continue doing my job that doesn't feel like "work". I have met so many interesting people along the way this year- lovely clients with interesting life stories from medical, education, legal, hospitality, and retail backgrounds. Not only have I enjoyed getting to make them over with hair/makeup, I've also loved hearing them tell stories about their own lives. I always feel very privileged and humbled when my clients share their stories with me- my life feels richer knowing that I have met so many different people from different backgrounds and walks of life. So thank you to all of my beautiful clients from 2013 who have shared their lives with me.

Bridal Style Feature: Colourful Accessories


For some brides-to-be, the prospect of wearing an all-white (or ivory) dress and accessories might seem too "bridal" for them or not reflect their vibrant personality. It's a bit of an unspoken "rule" that to complement a white/ivory wedding dress, your accessories also must be white, ivory, pearl, gold or silver. But when done correctly (and not in over-kill!) the addition of a pop of colour to your jewellery or shoes can add some individuality to your bridal attire and set your wedding style apart from the rest.

Here are some examples of how to rock a vibrant statement necklace with your wedding gown:
Colourful Wedding Necklaces


And for those brides who like the idea of a hint of colour, but are hesitant to wear something as bold as a statement necklace, you can feature a splice of colour in your earrings:
Colourful Bridal Earrings- Blue, Red, Emerald Wedding Earrings


Alternatively, you can keep all of your jewellery white/ivory, and add some colour to your hairstyle by wearing a headpiece or flowers with colours that tie in with your wedding theme.

Colour Hair Accessories for Brides
Below you will find a beautiful selection of colourful accessories from Perle Jewellery that you can use as an alternative to traditional white and ivory bridal accessories.

For Brides who choose to accessorise with colour, blue is often a popular choice as your accessories can help you check "something blue" off of your list!
