Top 10 Wedding Hair Styles

15th December 2011

No matter the hairstyle you have in mind for your wedding day, we have ten of the most beautiful images  to help you out with some inspiration. Popular styles for Sunshine Coast brides are intricate asymetrical upstyles, structured stylish buns, or a loose relaxed cascade of curls. Another trend in bridal hairstyling at the moment is the inclusion of some braiding in both upstyles, or blending into your free-flowing downstyle for a pretty bohemian look.     1.  Photography by Jessica Lorren Organic Wedding Photography via Style Me Pretty 2.

The good thing about purple is you can use it in so many ways when it comes to the styling of your wedding. Of course you will want to dress your bridesmaids in the colour, and incorporate purple in your decorating, but you can also use…

Maleny Wedding in January

11th December 2011

On March 11, 2004, professional ballerina, Chantelle Kerr, was celebrating her 22nd birthday at a rehearsal with the Royal New Zealand Ballet. These days, she has another reason to celebrate this date. It was the very day she met her now husband, fellow ballet dancer, Andrew Simmons.

And the rest is history. It seems keeping dates easy to remember is a running theme with this couple, because Andrew…
