Ballerina Grace

The biggest and boldest statement of any wedding is the dress. Certainly not isolated from trends, ‘The Dress’ often embodies the most current, or most beloved runway looks. Whether it's an illusion neckline; a mermaid skirt; a keyhole back; lace sleeves; beaded bodice or a luxe Princess Gown, it’s the kind of fashion that most certainly makes a statement. At White + White we've been gazing into our crystal ball to bring you the most definitive bridal look for 2013 and expect it will be the year of the Ballerina Bride!
Refined lace, tousled tulle, exquisite embroidery and flawless silks typically define the ballet-esque bride and therefore allow it to delicately dance between the softer silhouette and the tailored finish.
Presenting an undeniable sense of grace and youthfulness, the ballerina gown exudes femininity while celebrating personal style and expression. Colour, cut, texture and patterned fabrics are toyed with each time to create something individual-perfect for the bride wanting something different.

So if you’re that bride-to-be looking for something different; something with classic lines but refreshing design; something decadent in beauty but equally understated and graceful; something kissed with a little bit of magic; then we recommend the ballerina gown! Such a stunner!

Behind the scenes of White+White's Photo shoot

It’s 7am and the rain has finally stopped after weeks of horizontal downpours. It must be a good omen. It’s the day of White+White’s first ever photoshoot at Vivid Photography Studio in Kangaroo Point and the sun is blessing us with it’s presence. 

Inspired by a light filled parisienne apartment in the Marais district of Paris, the shoot took 8 weeks of meticulous planning, 7 hours of strenuous pre-shoot preparation, 6 hours of modeling and 3 hours of hair and makeup from Hair By Popular Demand and Desiree. The result was simply stunning.

Cut glass goblets from Hodge Podge Hire dazzled in the sought after sunshine streaming through the window, with sequin dresses, pearls and mercury glass shimmering in the flickering candle light. 

It was a beautiful sight, especially with our beloved border collie, Zarla, bouncing around the gorgeous pieces of furniture from interior boutique, Oliveaux , Amini Concepts, Styled Events and Epic Empire. 

Seductively scented blooms created by Nicole at Stem Design brought the scene to life with spectacular Icebreaker rose heads, blush dahlias and flamingo pink Bella Donna lilies. The intoxicating scent lingered all day as we sneakily tucked into rich chocolate macaroons and turkish flatbreads to keep us going. 

The dinner setting was finished with delicate embossed menu cards dreamt up by talented Cara at The Invitation Station and of course, no dinner party is complete without the finest patisserie desserts. With a mouth-watering selection of the most beautiful cakes we have ever laid eyes on provided by The Cake That Ate Paris, our lifestyle setting was complete. Believe us when we say they taste like heaven too.

All in all, a fabulously exhausting day doing our favourite things: creating beautiful spaces and memories with passion and heaps of fun on the side. Time for a very long snooze and the planning of our next fabulous bespoke wedding.
