Soul-mate: A person with whom you have a feeling of deep and natural affinity, love, intimacy, spirituality and compatibility with. Someone who completes you. Someone who your soul has been searching for. Someone who is you destiny.
A few weeks ago, on a unseasonably sunny and warm autumn day, I had the immense honour and pleasure of attending the wedding of friends Sam and Ashley. An amazing couple who compliment each other perfectly. Best friends as well as partners for life, they are evidence that true love really does exist. Sam who originates from the UK met Ashley, a born and raised in Sydney-sider, during his year travelling abroad. Little did he know that by catching a falling leaf, a sign of good luck and fortune, would be the catalyst that pushed him along the path to finding his soulmate.
For this joyous occasion I finally got to wear my Josh Goot graphic print skirt - my first piece from this talented Australian designer. Needless to say I am officially hooked! I just love the array of eye-catching colours. Continuing with the bright theme, I paired the skirt with this gorgeous silk halter and perfectly over-sized patent mandarin envelope clutch.
However, the real star of the night was of course Ashley in her amazing gown. There was no shortage of gasps and awes when she entered the boat upon which they were wed. Wearing a classic vintage style gown, adorned in delicate lace and simple elegant pearls - 'Angelic' would be one word (among many) to describe how she looked that day. Coming second only to Ashley was the view of the sun setting over Balmoral Beach from the Pavilion, the perfect setting for friends and family, who had come from near and far, to celebrate such a perfect and blissful union.
Congratulations to this amazing couple and thank you so much for letting me be a part of your beautiful day.
