Making New "Classic"

I've had a couple of requests for some more shots of my wedding in May of this year. So if you'll indulge me, I just thought I'd share a couple of my favorites that I thought you'd like.
As I've already explained, we did not have a vintage theme to our day, rather, I chose 'understated elegance' as my guide when making my wedding day related selections.
Black and white photography can really help set the scene and these shots assisted me in producing a 'classic' look, as opposed to a modern one.
If you click on the images, they will enlarge for your detailed, viewing pleasure.

These next few are in colour, but again, reflect the look and feel I was trying to achieve, without trying too hard.

Enjoy, Kittens!

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week - Giddy Up!

Hello Kittens

I'm so excited! Spring is in the air and you know what that means.....

Yes, Melbourne Spring Fashion Week is almost upon us!

I've just secured my tickets to this year's must event: Miss Green's Garden Party.

This is a note from Miss Green:

"Miss Green’s Garden Party is an eco-minded fashion event that will be held in the lush surrounds of The Willows and is part of the official schedule for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2009.

Local established and emerging designers have been invited to take part in a fashion show and design an outfit worthy of the Spring Racing Carnival exclusively for the event. The difference is they must be created using only eco-friendly materials. Many of the pieces will be auctioned off at the Garden Party with 50% of the purchase price being donated to the designer’s favourite charity. Where else can you buy a one-off designer outfit fit for ‘Fashions on the Field’ completely guilt free?

The dream designer line-up includes: Jenny Bannister, Nicolangela, Miss Lyndel Yeo, Anna Campbell, Alexi Freeman, Sideshow Design, Leonard St, Made In Donald, DavisEyes, K.B.A.D, Sara Victoria, Lady Petrova, Eva Q, Tiffany Treloar, Nikolina Concepts, Messina Designs, Joolz, Hopeless and Hair Fascinators."

So if you are in Melbourne on Sunday 6th September and are looking for inspiration for your Spring Racing Carnival outfit (and who isn't?) here is a way to have a champagne, enjoy the surrounds and help charity all at once. At $35 a ticket (which includes a to die for goodie bag).

Don't delay Kittens, tickets are getting scarce, so visit Miss Green today - see you there!
