The Wedding of The Von Haus Of Glitzern

A new year, a new decade and the wedding of both! Now far from being a wedding blogger although I have styled so many bridal shoots that I might turn white! I was recently invited to the special day of two creative, talented people who make Melbourne one of the most eclectic, interesting cities to live in! The first a designer herself my friend the gorgeous Caroline Price who now owns and runs (along with business partner Moira Rogers) the unique and amazing store Glitzern, whom I've known for over 10 years and has always been at the forefront of cutting edge design and fashion and her betrothed Hugh Thorn, owner of that fantastic dining experience 'Von Haus' located right next door to Glitzern on Crossley Street Melbourne.
The 'event' took place in the magnificent St Pauls Catherdral Melbourne and was a who's who of Melbourne design and fashion, Lisa Gorman of Gorman, her partner Dean Angelucci, Kara Baker who designed the wedding gown, my date for the day Dean Hewitt of Madam Virtue and many many more 'in the know'!
The bride wore leopard print! Well you don't hear that everyday and you also don't see a bride that looks as stylish as Caroline did set off by a corsage of blood red roses, and of course her handsome husband.
Now of course most married couples hope that the weather will be perfect but the day of this wedding was perfect if you enjoy a day of 40 celsuis! Now most that know me know I hate the extreme heat and this proved a problem of what exactly to wear, hence my dressed down appearance(for me) so it was left to seersucker trousers and cotton scarf, but of course this day is all about the bride!

Another amazing, unique part of this wedding was the cake, a leopard!!! Such attention to detail! After the service all the guests ventured to the Fitzroy Town Hall where a colour theme of Red, Yellow and Blue greeted us and an entertaining night of dancing and merryment!

The colour theme extended to baloons outside the Town Hall, where we attached notes of best wishes for Caroline and Hugh that were let loose into the atmosphere and into their life.
The Fitzroy sky coloured by our wishes for the future for Caroline and Hugh, an amazing night for an amazing couple on a night that I will not forget, so much fun with so many great people!
