Bonzie Featured on WedLuxe Magazine Blog





Gals,
We are so grateful to a dear online friend of ours TraceyPaul of InviteMeCreative who brought us a wee publicity scoop that we almost missed this weekend. Canadas Luxury Wedding Magazine, "WedLuxe" chose to feature our work in their editors picks on their official blog and we were very excited to see our wraps as the editors "haute picks" for bridal couture.

Thanks to WedLuxe magazine and thanks again to our online pals like TraceyPaul who bring us the scoops hot off the press so we don't miss anything exciting. xxx

Confetti Revisited








Gals I happened upon these stunning photos from the "Confetti Magazine" shoot that we were involved in last year with Irish stylist Roxanne Parker. I shared the feature with you all from the magazine but it was purely just a camera over the magazine type of a job.

I saw these actual jpegs on Roxannes Facebook and they took my breath away. Its such a treat to see our pieces styled in such a romantic way and captured by renowned professional photographer Agata Stoinska.

we were so chuffed to see one of our pieces featured in a recent photo shoot on one of our favourite bridal blogs "Style Me Pretty". The photography and styling is sensational thanks to photographer Carla Ten Eyck and the stunning styling capabilities of Candice Dowling of www.eventjubilee.com ,so its a huge treat to find that our antique tea stain rococco wrap made its way into the overall Fall Inspired Wedding Shoot.

A huge heartfelt thanks to the crew at "Style Me Pretty", Carla and Candice for their continued support we are honored to be featured on such a stunning bridal blog in such a fabulously stylish fashion.

Client Corner ~ Rachel


Gals,
One of our recent brides Rachel rocked the Marie Antoinette bolero with her gorgeous wedding outfit. I love the vibrant colors in Rachels special day, the feminine ruffles against her stunning artwork, that stunning floral bouquet and that dreamy blue sky. Rachel looks like a perfect bride on a perfect day!

We hope Rachel had a magical time and we are excited to see our work playing such a nice part in the bridal ensemble. ;)

Irish Brides Magazine Feature!








Gals, we have been so looking forward to sharing this particular magazine feature, and as publishing goes, its important to only share the news after its been released to the public. We had an opportunity to work with one of Irelands top stylists Tanya Grimson and we were blown away by the results, very hauntingly beautiful and with a really mystical aesthetic, its been so incredible to be involved in such a high profile collaboration.

We hope you gals like it too..

Client Corner ~ Liz




Hi Gals,

Its been a long time since we checked in with you all, a lot has been happening over the last wee while. The laptop took a sabatical for quite some time whilst my charger decided to give up the ghost so I have been without all my photographs for ages and finally have managed to get the technology back in action again. I was also away on my holidays for a week in London with my sister and we had an amazing trip so theres lots of catching up to do here in the studio.

One of the loveliest things to come home to is photographs from our brides of their wedding day and how our piece worked out with their ensemble. One such bride was Liz who actually bought her wedding dress around her teal bolero and chose something that would compliment it overall. I love the pop of rich teal color within Liz's look, its a really fresh approach to bridal and really adds a new dimension to the traditional color palette. Liz was such an awesome client to work with and we are so chuffed to have featured in her special day.

We wish Liz and her new Hubbie the best of all that Married life has to offer. xxxx
