A Vintage Chic Wedding – Lindsey and Patrick

One the things I always ask when a Bride chooses her House of Elliot footwear is to send me photos of their wedding day. There is no doubt about it, my favourite moment is seeing photos of our gorgeous Brides, so when Lindsey sent me an e-mail with a link to her wedding gallery I just knew I had to share her and Patrick's beautiful wedding day with you.

A Vintage Summer Fete Inspired Wedding – Andrea and John

Every time I read one of our Bride's wedding stories something jumps out at me about their own unique special day and personality.

You can tell from the photos that this wedding was a blast (I wish I could have been there!). So much thought was put into every little detail and Andrea even made and designed her own stationery, favours and table [...]

Romantic Vineyard Wedding – Chloe and Dennis

There is something utterly romantic about a wedding set in a beautiful vineyard amidst falling leaves and washed in soft autumnal light.

Of course in Australia, the autumn falls in May so it was wonderful to see the rich hues of gold in so many of these gorgeous photos taken by Erin Latimore Photography. Chloe chose to wear a classic strapless dress with an ivory guipure lace overlay, paired of course with a pair of show stopping 'Goodnight Sweetheart' lace over the knee [...]
