The Academy


A day with Ivy & Bleu is never short of fun, extravagance and creative flair and this styled shoot for The Academy certainly did not disappoint!

From bright pink floral and balloon arrangements to lacy gowns and a neon sign, the shoot pushed all the boundaries in the best possible way.

Students spent the day learning all there is to know from the amazing team at Ivy & Bleu while we marvelled in all the beauty put together by the most talented vendors!

Luxe Tropo at Byron View Farm


Casey and Ben, along with their family and friends, travelled from Victoria to Byron View Farm for their special day.

The weather was touch and go but thankfully the rain held off long enough for a portrait session overlooking the stunning Byron hinterland.

The styling was beautifully minimalistic, fresh and tropical with the gorgeous white and green hues.

Once guests were under the clear marquee, Byron Bay put on a show with heavy rain and an incredible double rainbow.

What a pleasure it was to be a part of Casey and Ben’s special day.

A relaxed backyard bohemian affair


Lindsay & Matt tied the knot at the Riverwood Estate on the most idyllic Autumns day.

The relaxed backyard wedding in the stunning Gold Coast Hinterland was the perfect setting to share in the love with their family and friends.

With the incredible flower arrangements created by Lindsay herself, the exquisite dress from Grace Loves Lace and butterflies fluttering throughout the gardens, this special day really fulfilled all our boho wedding dreams. 

It was an absolute delight to capture all the love between these two.

A Beautiful Way


In September we were invited along to A Beautiful Way Fine Art Photography Workshop led by Naomi of Naomi Kenton Photography & Holly of Belle & Beau Photography - both internationally recognised as two of the UK's best fine art wedding photographers. 

Attendees were treated to a wedding feast with beautiful floral arrangements by Firenza Floral Design, delicate gowns by Cherry Williams and an exquisite stationery suite from The Wells Makery

We were there to capture all of the behind the scenes action & while doing so, we've learnt some invaluable fine art skills which we have now applied to our film making.

Anastasia

Let us introduce you to Anastasia, Made With Loves newest creation....

How can someone put into words this pinnacle design?

 The structure and softness of her plunging neckline, adorned with lace, eternally cascading down the bodice with desire.

Or the alluring fitted chiffon skirt that wraps around the middle without qualm or poetry because simply no words are needed.

Or the surrendering fall of the chiffon skirt to the floor that exalts a woman’s body as if she were a temple? (Our bride is, without a doubt, a goddess within a temple.)

The lace on the back invites passerbys to admire and imagine, as her open back hints of her sacred treasure.

Her posterior culminates in a detachable train, part lace, part chiffon, dramatically falling behind her in reverence.

She smiles boldly where she goes, knowing all who see her, are inspired.
