Hello May Feature: Mexican Wedding Fiesta in the Southern Highlands

A few weeks ago, a group of extremely talented creative folk got together to produce this mexican inspired shoot.

I created this concept to add lots of bright colours for a fun fiesta.  Details include purple + pink infused stationery, cactus wedding favours, candy coloured sodas mixed with a natural make up look and lace bridal dress.  Pops of natural colour came through from the flowers and the table setting we created included kitsch touches, mexican bunting and a traditional mexican blanket.

This week we were lucky enough to have Hello May feature images from this shoot to the world, so here are a few more shots!

Hope you enjoy and get inspired.

Wedding Cake Toppers

As a wedding stylist, I often get asked by my clients to recommend a cool,unique and on-trend cake topper for their wedding cake.. Here is a round up of my absolute favourites!  

Sources included below image so you can click the link and see what other customisable styles, fonts + colours these makers have available.

Here we go.....


floral watercolour cake toppers




wood cake toppers




tassel cake toppers




lazercut cake toppers



acrylic cake toppers




banner cake toppers




When choosing a cake topper, keep in mind the style of your cake.  You don't want to overpower or add to much to an already "busy" cake... - You want the cake topper to compliment and 'finish off' the cake as well as adding a personal touch.  Also keep in mind the rest of your stationery and decor for the room to ensure it suits nicely.

Happy cake topper hunting!
