Spring has sprung

23 Oct 2014

And so has our new logo! It's finally spring (a hot one definitely!) but we still love the new breeze and warm sun calling us out to get to the beach. Sooo it is the perfect timing for us to team up with our fave Ruwi from Type Styled to come up with a new look for Ruffles & Bells.

Still keeping that soft and pretty look that we're known for, Ruwi was so amazing to capture our essence in our new modern logo...plus a mood board to match!

I'd love to know what you guys think! I hope you like it as much as we do! ;)

A Wash With Sunshine - on Style Me Pretty

16 Oct 2014

Hi lovelies! It has been a while! And yes how perfect is that title with this terrible cold weather during Spring!
I had to take a break from all the craziness of wedding season and renovation just so I can share this with you! We are featured again on Style Me Pretty and this is such a treat!

This shoot has been one of my faves so far and it's that freshness and light that got me! There's indeed plenty of inspiration to take away from this shoot so I'll leave you with this snippets from Style Me Pretty. Grab a cuppa or tea and make sure to take a few minutes to indulge in all that sunshine!

A Week To Remember - 26 Sep 2014

26 Sep 2014

Hi again lovelies! I know I've been much quiet here on the blog but that's because I am brewing (literally) something big and exciting!
First of all! Ruffles & Bells is going to be moving from our home office to it's own studio! We're starting some renovations for the studio that'll be a pretty space for brides to come in and actually plan their big day, have a nice cup of tea with us and chat about all vendors that we've been so lucky to work with.

It is such a dream for me to have this space, not just to showcase all our props and styling but because I feel for all the brides out there who have to travel to so many places to meet with all their vendors. It would be much easier to have one place all together and of course, we can do all the styling for you!

And on top of that, it'll be a cafe as well! And yes, I am one of the baristas ;)
It's a place for people to have coffee, good food and just chill! We've got some great people coming on board with us and making this new dream get bigger than ever!

I will be announcing the address and some sneak peeks soon! Sorry for getting you all excited but I promise it won't be long before I announce the address. I am definitely hoping to see you here!!! Drop by and say hi lovelies!

PS: I want to use this post to thank everyone who have helped me and my hubby to realise this dream and for the continuous support! Big hugs going to you for all the love!

Catch up soon!
For the meantime, have an awesome Friday!

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.
