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!

Happy New Year everyone! I can already tell that it is going to be an amazing year and I have decided to challenge myself and keep my new years resolution of posting an inspiration image every day for the entire year. Now I know it is going to be difficult to keep this resolution, but I am going to do the very best that I can! I promise!

The very first inspiration of the year is this beautiful Blue and Gold wedding palette filled with sparkles, jewel tones and wonder! I hope you enjoy!

12 Days of Christmas – Five Golden Rings! – Wedding Inspiration Christmas Countdown

12 days of Christmas 5

 

Gold and Green are two of the easiest pairings in history, especially at this time of year. Throw in a couple of gold rings and what do you get? A wedding! Today I focused on finding subtle greens and golds that work well together as a team and separately, but must work in a wedding environment. I love this rich green, which I believe will be big in 2013, as mint had it’s moment in 2012. An easy way to incorporate gold and green in to your every day life is to pick up a fresh wreath (or make one, which is even better!) and grab some gold glitter, and spray it to give it a christmas-y glow!

See you tomorrow!
