Sometimes a wedding stops you in your tracks, and this stylish Sydney soiree happens to be one of those darling days!

 

Being an interior designer and freelance stylist by day, Laura sprinkled her and Dylan’s wedding with ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ magic, creating a beyond beautiful vision that is brimming with vintage pretty.

 

From the breathtaking Cathedral ceremony to Laura’s fabulous fishtail gown, from the unique island reception venue (only accessible by boat) to the twinkling fairy light lit garden theme, the details and thought that went into their day truly shines through.

Rachael & James   ♥   Ohio, USA

Photographer:   Kayla Coleman Photography

 

When a fashionable designer gets engaged you can guarantee she will have one chic engagement shoot. Team this style savvy bride-to-be and her dapper groom-to-be with an oh-so-brilliant photographer and the results are dreamy romantic photographs, abounding with personality.

 

Rachael, the founder of design boutique Shore Society and her hubby-to-be James, got engaged on the bleached white sands of the Key West, Florida. Once home and still reeling from their romantic proposal trip, they recreated the feeling of those fabulous vacation moments at their local beach. By photographing at their house (with their super-cute pooch!) and on their well-loved bikes too, their personalities and home life shone through, as well as their obvious adoration for each other.

“Often there are couples that photographers want to call ‘DIBS!’ on. When I saw Jim and Rachael’s engagement announcement on Facebook, I jumped at my chance to get them in front of my camera!”
