I recently put together a shoot for The Refinery Magazine, and have really enjoyed the hard work and time that I put in to creating this grooms lounge inspired shoot. One of my favourites was the “Grooms & Greens” section that can be found within the new pages at: www.therefinerymag.com

Below are some photos from the Mag, and I hope you enjoy!

For the past few months, I’ve been planning for Ellebay’s first look book with Kristy Ryan of Blush Wedding Photography and Chiara DeMutiis of Kailey Michelle Events. It’s been an awesome and inspiring process, and I’m so excited to share it with you all!

We did the shoot last Sunday, and though I only had time for a two hour nap over the span of two days, there was so much positive energy that I didn’t feel tired at all. I couldn’t have imagined a better team, and I truly feel like we made magic.

Just as exciting as the shoot was the process leading up to it. I’ve been doing Ellebay with my mum for the past couple of years, and though I have a distinct aesthetic, I never took the time to sit down and figure out exactly what that was. Planning for this look book…

Welcome to Ainsley’s Affairs!

It has been a long time coming, but it is finally here! I am in love with my new name, my new website, my new image, and the prospect of new clients, just like you!

I have so many people to thank for this big change, and the biggest one goes to my friend Madison, Graphic Designer EXTRAORDINAIRE! This amazing woman who also owns and runs Hope Studio Co., really is responsible for giving my online world a new face. I am so incredibly thankful for her long hours of dedication and her wonderful attitude towards my nit picking and fussyness. She really is the best! I dont think one single day has passed where we have not exchanged some kind of communication.

I also have to thank Hello Tomorrow Wedding Films for helping me relaunch with a FANTASTIC video. They were the perfect team of husband and wife, and have given my new name a “real-life” image. They followed me for an entire day, from here to there, and helped me transform the gazebo of The Rose Garden into the perfect ceremony cite for any bride. take a minute or so to enjoy some of their handiwork, as I know they will appreciate it! ^^^ I also have to thank Brick & Mortar living for letting me visit, and it was great to see Julia be involved! It was really a perfect day. ❤

Lastly, I have to thank all of my friends and family for believing in me, and giving me the courage to be true to who I am as a person and as a wedding planner. I believe it is important to give a correct portrayal of my business at all times, and that includes my business name. I was fortunate to have a wonderful mother who gave me a fantastic name, so I feel I am honouring her memory today, and forever more, by using Ainsley in my business. Lastly, I am a one gal team, and I am a representation of my business, so Ainsley’s Affairs really fits with who I am.

I welcome you to a brand new year, a brand new adventure and a brand new life for Idea!, now the fabulously named: Ainsley’s Affairs!

Come join me!
