IMAGE: CASSANDRA LADRU
With couples seeking a more natural feel for their weddings, the floral chandelier concept has been soaring. Ginger Lily & Rose Floral Studio owner Julia Hails has received state and national awards for her designs and she says there is something magical about seeing floral chandeliers suspended from the ceiling.
ADD A TOUCH OF ROYALTY TO YOUR WEDDING There is nothing quite like the excitement of a royal wedding and on May 19, millions of eyes will be on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they exchange vows in what will no doubt be an elegant and sophisticated affair. With a modest guest list of 800 and St George’s Chapel in Windsor as the backdrop, there is no doubt that expense will not be a consideration for these love birds. Sadly, this is not the case with those of us not marrying into royalty, and the average Australian

Looking for a venue?
Balloons are not just relegated to the realm of children’s birthday parties. Chic balloons filled with gorgeous flower petals, greenery or even colourful confetti and glitter are appearing at weddings this year. When complementing ceremony or reception décor, these balloons become an eye-catching addition to the atmosphere of your wedding.
Elegantly set dessert tables are a popular offering at large-scale, sophisticated weddings. Create your own spread with a high-tea style focus. We love this pretty example.
THE NEW BOUQUET MUST-HAVE Pampas grass is the new baby’s breath of 2018. Its wispy elegance makes pampas a gorgeous addition to bouquets, arbours and table settings, while larger fronds make spectacular statement arrangements for ceremony and reception decorations.
No matter what size your wedding, there are stunning venues to cater for all sizes from an intimate gathering to a sit-down affair for hundreds of guests.

THE INS AND OUTS OF GOLD
Here are some quick facts to get you started before you go on the hunt for those forever rings. • A karat is a unit of purity and 24 karats is the highest. • 24 karat gold is soft and malleable. • 14 or 18 karat gold rings are mixed with other metals or alloys, making them more durable. • Plating means the core is another metal coated in gold. • Plated rings are a more affordable option if you have a tight budget. • Gold can come in varying colours, however the most common are yellow, white and rose, with black gold becoming a popular choice for men’s rings.

PREP FOR YOUR DAY WITH COTTON TREE CLINIC
It is the colour that has often been associated with counterculture, with musical icons Prince, David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix adopting shades of ultraviolet to the mainstream to signify their individuality. But this year, this blue-based purple will no doubt be springing up in weddings across the Coast after it was named the Pantone Colour of the Year. Here are some ways you can incorporate pops of purple into your wedding.
THE DRESS: Dare to be different and choose a gown with a splash of purple.
Assist nature rather than changing it. Cotton Tree Injectables’ biostimulant works by restarting your skin’s natural process of producing collagen, to look fresher and more youthful. This facial collagen-replenishing effect helps to gradually reduce lines, wrinkles and folds. Contact Cotton Tree Clinic for more information.
THE CAKE: Go as subtle or as bold as you like, but adding some purple to your wedding cake or dessert will make it a conversation-starter.
Brighten and stimulate your skin with a microdermabrasion and new-generation skin peel package, $99.
Jazz up your table with different purple tones.
Start the day with a fresh face using… FLOWERS: Talk to your florist to find out which purple blooms will be in season for your chosen wedding date. SIGNATURE DRINK: FOR THE GROOM: Get the guys in on the act with gorgeous ties and buttonholes that complement the colour scheme.
Your ring, your design, your personal jeweller
Get creative with a purple-inspired signature drink for guests to enjoy.
SYNERGIE MICELLUTION Like the idea of removing makeup and cleansing in one go? Try Synergie Micellution – a gentle 4-in-1 micellar cleansing water that will effectively remove traces of makeup, oil build-up and impurities from the skin. No water needed, $59. Cotton Tree Injectable Clinic 5479 5355
