Beatrice Holiday

It's been ages since I owned a bicycle and the idea of having one again is starting to appeal to me. Looking at photos of handlebar bags and seat covers by Beatrice Holiday - Wheel Cute Couture certainly helps. They are handmade from vintage fabrics and can be purchased separately or as a set. "Wheel Cute Couture", now that's right on the mark!

A snap-on leather strap comes with the handlebar bags so they can be converted into shoulder bags. Find Beatrice Holiday - Wheel Cute Couture at:

A Sydney Beach Wedding

Swoon-worthy, simple and elegant, this wedding was photographed by the talented Marzena Wasilewska . The gorgeous couple, Helen and David, were married on a perfect summer's day in December last year at Shakespeare's Point in Nielsen Park, Sydney, Australia. Accented with French lace embellished with crystal beads, Helen's dreamy vintage inspired champagne silk chiffon dress was designed by the also talented Nina Field of Petal Bridal Couture.

Albert Hammond Jr.'s "Cartoon Music for Superheroes" played when Helen walked down the ailse decorated with tissue paper daisies made by Helen. Guests were given oiled rice paper parasols and sandlewood fans.

Helen and David wrote their own vows and some readings from A.A. Milne were included in the ceremony. "All You Need is Love" by The Beatles played when they were announced as Mr and Mrs.

Helen carried a vintage oiled rice paper parasol which I featured in my previous post.

Can you see "ALL WE NEED IS LOVE ♥♥♥" written in the clouds?

The reception was held at The Beach House Cafe in Nielsen Park which was built in 1914 and used to be a kiosk. Canapes and pink champagne were served.

And lime and coconut cupcakes made by Helen were also served. Helen decorated the cupcakes with tissue paper daisies with vintage button centres.

The flowers on the tables at the reception were arranged by Helen in vintage and preloved milk bottles, jars and vases.

Hope you enjoyed this lovely dose of romance dear ones and hope you're having a happy week! :)
