A Garden Tale - Styled Shoot

3 Sep 2014

A tale as old as time but with a Ruffles & Bells twist. Today's styled shoot is definitely something out of a fairytale and is sure to be a great inspiration this Spring. If it wasn't for an awesome team, we wouldn't have pulled off something that is not only romantic but fresh and yes, perfect!

Inspired by the Belle's sweetness and the Beast's masculine feature, we have brought the two lovebirds out of their castle and into a setup just for the two of them. Yellow, golds, and blues are the main colors playing in this shoot together with lots of pops of pinks, oranges and purple thru the flowers, invitations and sweets.

Here's a 'get the look' board for an easier inspiration for you lovelies!

And of course, some of my fave shots throughout the whole shoot
Superb team!

And we are so thrilled that this shoot has been part of Modern Wedding Magazine's Styling Handbook this year plus a vendor feature on Simply Peachy as well!

A Week To Remember - 26 August 2014

27 Aug 2014

What have you been up to so far everyone? Anyone excited for spring as much as I am? I can't wait to get rid of this cold weather, although with Melbourne it's never going to go away. Kick starting this week with an aching back from enjoying too much skiing, here's what we've been up to these past few days. 

Jungle Safari Invites with 2 Love Birds
If you've seen some of our posts so far, we are very excited to be planning a colorful birthday party soon and we've tied up with Ania from 2 Love Birds to create these cool invites. We can't really show the full photos yet but here's an idea to get you excited as well! Love working with Ania as always!

What do you think? :)

Kind Kinfolk
We are always honoured to do what we love for a good cause! So when Jade asked us to be part of Kind Kinfolk, we just couldn't say no! All for the benefit of 4 development projects supported by Kinfolk Cafe, it was definitely a night with hip talented people all over Melbourne chatting hi's and hello's and talking about what they love to do and everything that's happening in Melbourne. There were lots of sponsors as well like Wunderplant, The Desserts Parlour (yum profiteroles!), TypeStyled, Green Press and The Collective Magazine filling the night with goodies and treats. 

Just in case you don't know, the Kinfolk Cafe is a social enterprise serving great coffee and food where all profits are redirected to 4 development projects all over Australia and around the world. If you happen to be in the city and is looking for a nice place to eat and help out all at the same time, this is the perfect place to visit! 

Ruffles & Bells Studio - Update
Yes, the studio is under way and we've just got so much to share that I want to explode! It is going to be such a great space for brides to come in and plan their wedding. Be in a zone where it's all pretty and relaxing, have mock-up for your table settings and even hold an intimate party in. Sounds good? OMG I can't wait to get all the furnitures in and have it all ready for you ;)

Sneak Peek - Alin Le' Kal shoot
Recently worked on something different for a shoot which makes it even more interesting! Especially that it's a bit of a Vogue feel. Here's a snaps of the whole team and a glimpse to how we were behind the scenes.


Mark The Tables

19 Aug 2014

Just rounding up some of our fave table markers this week. Gettin a few ideas rounded up for weddings next year!
Any of these you're favorites?
I know it's called a table number but the thing is it doesn't have to be a number ;) 
or maybe a story that goes with it, sounds better! 
Fancy some plates?

A Week To Remember - 13 August 2014

13 Aug 2014

It's crazy how August has been flying by too quickly! I couldn't really keep up! Eeeek!
Ruffles & Bells is definitely going through lots of changes, brainstorming and new weddings and projects and so there has been a whole lot going on. So here's what we've been up to so far.

Featured on Modern Wedding Styling Handbook 
This would definitely be my highlight of the week! Being part of Modern Wedding's Styling Handbook is more than an achievement and to be featured as on of Australia's Top 25 Wedding Stylist is just beyond my wildest dreams. It's definitely a milestone for R&B and I'm really really excited on what's happening next! Have you grabbed your copy yet? Cause you just have to! ;)

Event Brite + 99 Designs
First of all, their office/pad/workspace was amazing!! I was lucky to have been invited by Jade from Event Head to tag along for their first event together showcasing how to market your product through design and the importance of ticketing for events. If you are running an event that needs some ticket management or if you are looking for designers to create a logo or design for you, these are the guys to go to! Check out their pages and all the magic they do: Event Brite | 99 Designs. #DesigntoSell
Hyatt Wedding's App and Magazine Launch
I had the pleasure of touring Grand Hyatt a while back and so which is why I was lucky to be invited when Hyatt Australia launched their wedding app and magazine last week.
Check out more details from my previous post here.

Driver's Licence
OMG! I finally got my licence! After two years, it has been way too long. I feel like an 18 year old again! Now just to wait and see how my photo actually turned out.

New Studio
This has definitely been a long time coming! I have been raving about how excited the R&B family is the past few weeks and well we are undergoing lots of moving and hard work to serve you better and actually be an experience as part of your wedding planning. I can't really reveal much yet but I promise it'll all be worth the wait.

Stay tuned lovelies!
