Nick + Jenna

23 Feb 2015

We get really excited seeing super talented people capturing our gorgeous couple's big day! Usually when we're setting up on the day, we end up forgetting about taking photos at all. So it's refreshing to have someone professional capture the day and give us kind of a throwback to say the least.

Here's a look back to Nick & Jenna's lovely wedding at The Stones of Yarra Valley captured by no other than The White Tree. Sit back, have a cuppa and hopefully it brings you heaps of inspiration for an amazing week ahead!

A Full Few Days of DIYs

9 Feb 2015

We love custom making things for our couples every day. It is, as we say, R&B's personal touch to all events that we style and besides we do enjoy making all of the many projects we've got lined up.

Every single event gets something especially created for a memorable day.

So we thought we'd share some sneak peeks of what we've got brewing int the studio.

Can't say how much we're excited about putting all this together and showing you all the photos soon!

Have a great Monday you guys!

Happy New Year everyone! Eliska here! Let's start the year with a bang shall we?

I've always loved looking back just when it hits 12midnight. A little flash back won't hurt to juggle the memories and remember how crazy it has been through the late nights and order rush and manic schedules.

Being part of printed magazines like Modern Wedding and Frankie are definitely one of the best things that happened to Ruffles & Bells. And of course, actually getting to have a studio is no-doubt the tip of the icing! Dreams can definitely become reality! You just have to work on it!

So after giving much thought and reflection (as you might say) this year Ruffles & Bells is all about reinventing and improving at the same time. It's all about providing a better experience for our couples whilst taking them in a journey of creating their big day. It's not only the big day that's important but remembering every step that made it so wonderful. Planning is such an essential part to all events so we want to make this special too! Ok, this is already getting me excited!

But before we get on back to all the hardwork and sharing more weddings, inspirations and events we've been secretly working on the past few months , we want to first share with you our mantra for the year.

It's simple but definitely powerful and essential. Let's just say when the clock strike 12, *ohhh-mmmm* ;)


Thankful To Be

2 Dec 2014

I have nothing else to say but Thank You! It's my favourite time of the year and definitely the season when I feel very blessed and thankful about everything that has been happened for the year so far. It's a busy busy year but nevertheless very happy busy. With Ruffles & Bells and the cafe keeping my hubby and I fully occupied, its a year that I have truly grown to know myself and who I want to be. 

It's that one thing that I've learned being in the industry and growing the business - it's to never forget to be thankful. No matter it's the dead days or the happy days, you have to stop for a second, step back, breathe deeply and look at how far you've gone. Remember the people you've met on the way  and remember to give back. Realise that at the end of each day, your heart is overflowing with so much that you just have to share it to the world.  

Having a business is a great way to know yourself better. You'll experience the mood swings and test your strengths and feel the hate and the love that makes this world as amazing as it is. It is just a freakin' amazing door after door of discovery! Whatever you do, no matter how cliche this is, love it! Fall in love with again and again just like a real love relationship. 

So again, this birthday I made sure to shout it to the heavens and whisper a thankful prayer to Him for testing my faith, my husband for being my strength, my family for being my support and critic, my friends for being my inspiration. Thank you to those who have pushed me to the limit, made me scared to say yes, made me make bigger dreams (without knowing it), shown me a bigger world and granted me with a gift that no money can buy. A big hug and kisses to all of you!

Thank you for making this such an awesome year everyone!
