Rock ‘n Roll

Posted on: December 9th, 2013 by Carolyn No Comments

We finish the day with some more delicious treats from our talented Ana from Nice Ribbon Atelier.  She created these gorgeous goodies for a little girl who wanted a rock ‘n roll party.  I love the touch of pink and purple as it softens the look and makes it more feminine while still keeping the…

Home is where the heart is

For our second home tour, we headed off to a beautiful villa in the Green Community. We were lucky to capture the home before Jeanine and Mark began packing it up for their 15th move. Although the Holmes family have moved from one house to another, it is a priority to make each one feel…

I have just arrived home from afternoon tea at the Fairmont on The Palm and they were putting up their Christmas tree in the foyer…WOW!  The selection of treats were delicious and whilst enjoying them I couldn`t help dreaming about all the Christmas blogs I want to write.  This festive DIY I am sharing with…

A Thailand Celebration

Posted on: December 3rd, 2013 by Carolyn No Comments

Today we head to Thailand and bring you the laid-back but stunning wedding of Pierre and Candice.  There is nothing more romantic than the idea of an island wedding.  Planning a wedding from Dubai could have been a challenge but this gorgeous couple were not scared to trust their wedding coordinator, Dujarat Vari, and leave all…

Santa Baby…

Look what I just found in my mailbox…Christmas photographs from Nicky Mclean.  I could not have been more delighted to be able to feature these adorable images and if these pictures don`t get you in the festive spirit then I am not sure what will.  There must be some seriously proud parents, these children are…

A touch of Christmas

While sitting here typing this, my mind is racing with ideas of what to post next; wrapping ideas, advent calendar ideas, table decor, baked treats and so much more.  Andy and I will be celebrating our second Christmas together and yesterday we put up our tree.  We had the carols playing, warm mince pies and…

Baby & Co.

Today we have some baby shower inspiration for a little boy.  Ana from ‘Nice Ribbon Atelier” was the creative mind behind these photos.  The theme was ‘Tiffany & Co.’ but she wanted to adapt it slightly to make it more appropriate for a baby shower and decided to call it Baby & Co.  I love…

Rain

As I started writing this post the sun came out and it stopped raining here in the land of the sand but I thought I would carry on anyway.  Who says rain can ruin your wedding photographs?  Personally I think this kind of weather can enhance your images by adding romance and a sense of…

Lou Harvey UAE

In April 2012 my friends gave me the most beautiful bridal shower and it was here that I got my very first item from Lou Harvey (actually two items), spoilt rotten!  After seeing these gorgeous products all over South Africa I could not get over the stunning floral, striped and patterned ranges available.  I use…

It is always refreshing when you get the opportunity to meet people who are completely passionate about what they do and who are dedicated and committed to making sure this is reflected in their work.  Claire Riley from the Goldfish team met me for coffee to chat about the business that she started here in…
