Wedding bonanza extravaganza!

send offWedding photos as promised!

Over the weekend, Jinn’s little sister got married! After some oddly cold days preceding, the weather truly delivered on Sunday, showing off the blue blue skies that Perth is so famed for. The day’s festivities began with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony during which the betrothed couple serve tea to their respective new families as a symbol of respect and acceptance. After an exercise in quick change the white wedding finally took place! A lovely heartfelt ceremony (punctuated by appropriately timed loud cheers from the Australia vs South Africa cricket match nearby) saw tears flow from both the bride and groom’s eyes as well as many of the close friends and family gathered.

It was a beautiful day topped off by many a rug being cut on that dance floor late into the night!flowers makeup tea ceremony poh poh tea cupslyn-lee tealp-01 stovesitting tea ceremonyhugZ jinn congregation lyn-lee paul ceremony bwkisstable settings llt-paul-dance lyn-lee paul combo dancesa reception

***And as always, what I’m wearing – burgundy silk and lace dress by Lover, black suede heels by Robert Robert (kind of like the almost ankle boot feel of these), diamond and semiprecious stone earrings swiped from Mumsy’s stash of bling (mine all mine!)

Oh Lover

This outfit is a bit more “dramatic” and dark than my usual style but I just had to have this Lover Serpent Lace Dress when it came out earlier this year. I’d seen the gorgeous bright red version on Mirander Kerr but ummed and ahhed way too long about it and then was completely devastated when it sold out. This awesomely moody and romantic teal version was meant to be a post-exam present to myself but I just couldn’t wait so it turned out to be a pre-exam splurge! I wasn’t going to let it slip through my hands again…

***What I’m wearing – Lover Serpent Lace Dress in teal, black suede heels by Robert Robert (similar – these are cooool…), vintage Louis Vuitton clutch, diamond and ruby earrings (similar), my favourite red lippy by MAC (MAC Red), navy blue nail polish and caviar manicure by Ciate (here and here)
