I was beyond excited when Jess’s enquiry landed in my inbox. Jess is the mastermind behind local Perth hills cafes, Jack & Jill and the Haynes St Larder, droves of keen breakfast eaters travel up to the Perth hills every week to taste her delights. The menu is incredible and I know many of my brides have visited Jack & Jill enroute to their Elvi Design fitting.
Jess believes in sourcing locally produced goods for her cafe so it was only fitting that she apply the same mantra to her own wedding. Jess and Scott got married at a private property in the Perth Hills and sourced local suppliers to bring their vision to life.
When we met with Jess, she was looking for a long-sleeve wedding gown that featured a few unusual details. She was chasing an alternative lace, sleeves with volume at the shoulder, a high neck and no buttons but a discreet closure. We helped Jess with these design details and sourced a stunning lace that featured a beautiful leaf pattern, the lace was complimented by a soft bone coloured base.
“I really felt beautiful on the day. I absolutely loved my dress so much. And people are always commenting on how different and gorgeous it is :)”

On a rainy Winter’s day, we travelled down to Houghton Wines in the Swan Valley to create some magic along with a bunch of talented Perth wedding vendors. I was blown away by the rustic beauty of the venue, so many different options for a Perth wedding. Our ‘Ava’ gown, with it’s moody mushroom base and delicate lace overlay, provided the perfect contract to the bold red roses, lush greenery and rustic styling. The shoot resulted in an array of beautiful images by Pia of Mad Love Nation. Enjoy!

‘Wild romantics’ is an ode to free-spirited lovers with an appreciation of unstructured beauty, free-flowing wine and intimate feasts. On location at Houghtons, in the heart of Perth’s wine region, our styling team set the scene with an abundance of wild roses, dreamy lace, moody lighting and cascading foliage to warm the rustic setting.
Underground in the cellar, surrounded by oak barrels and candle light, a grazing table encourages shared feasting, rambling conversation and intimate connections.
