And the bride wore white...


Last Saturday I got to revisit the magical place I was married in, as my cousin had her wedding in the exact same beautiful spot.

My cousin was the most beautiful bride ever, in a stunning drapey grecian goddess gown by Australian designer Collette Dinnigan. My pictures don't do justice to the incredibly stunning crystal detailing on her ivory silk satin one-shoulder drape gown...

My gorgeous mom, visiting from Brazil, wearing a silk Perri Cutten coat dress over my Empire Rose silk dress, and Fendi Forever Mini Boston bag (a gift from my mother-in-law). Also, not pictured, she wore the shoes I wore as a bridesmaid to my sister's wedding (one size too big for her, remedied with 'Party Feet'). I wore my YSL wedding shoes...

Swarovski 'tennis bracelet' (30th b'day present from my sister)
Sportsgirl acrylic ring (bought this years ago for $1.50!)

  1. wow, wow, WOW. First of all, I adore her wedding dress--it's so unique but very classic and elegant. Your mother is gorgeous--blue looks fab on her (can I borrow her jacket?) and YOU missy, look beautiful. I'm loving that bright yellow on you with the electric blue clutch. Just divine.

  32. Thank you so much everyone for your lovely lovely comments!

    evie - Ah, you're so sweet! Mom always gets asked if she's my sister, haha, we are quite close. Her secret? Hm...she now avoids sun on her face, hardly drinks alcohol, doesn't smoke, takes care of her skin...must start doing the same! :)

    anonymous - Do I get my lips done? As in...dunno, collagen?!? *rofl* I couldn't think of anything else you may mean, so if that's it, haha, NO WAY! My lips actually disappeared in that photo due to lighting and my lipgloss fading, haven't bought a lipstick in years...Btw, you should see my sisters' lips, they have really full lips! I got the boring normal size in that dept. If that's not what you meant, I apologise for the rambling, haha! :)
