Wedding- A fashion fairy tale

shoes by Oscar de La Renta

Wedding Dress by Jenny Yoo

Headpiece Designed by Heather Mandin at Parts by Heather

My Wedding was the most important day of my life. I wanted to be a bit more of a modern bride (no cupcake dresses for me thanks!), so I went with a dress by Jenny Yoo that had a obi inspired train. But my favourite part of my wedding outfit were my Cinderella worthy shoes by Oscare de la Renta, that had 4 and a half inch heels and a gorgeous crystal buckle. I also accessorized with this custom made blue feather headpiece designed by B.C designer Heather Mandin. She is really talented, check out her website here.

ballet in the water photography

This image is Sarah Wildor for the Royal Ballets 2000 production of "Ondine". Choreographed by Sir Fredrick Ashton, it is the story of a water nymph who falls in love with a mortal man. The ballet is not done often at all anymore, which is a shame, as it has a gorgeous , ethereal quality to it and very dreamy music.

I love the ballet Swan Lake, its an all time favourite. This is one of the most beautiful photographs taken for it for the Australian Ballet. It is Odette from Graeme Murphy's Swan Lake ( pictured is former principal Simone Goldsmith). It is an image of her as she sinks, broken hearted, to the bottom of the lake. Its such a romantic but tragic love story, and this image captures all of that.
