After recently discovering Israeli bridal designer Lior Charchy, we fell in love with the label's glamorous aesthetic and with the gorgeous 2015 collection. The collection incorporated capes, fringe, two-piece dresses and many of our other favourite bridal trends of the moment. We love the sleek gowns with sheer backs and panels for a black-tie affair, and the caftan-inspired dresses for a luxurious destination celebration.
This downtown Toronto wedding from Purple Tree Photography is filled with elegant details and beautiful floral displays. Lindsay and Chris said “I Do” last summer at Malaparte, an Oliver & Bonacini event space located in the heart of the city’s entertainment district.
Rachel A. Clingen Wedding & Event Design orchestrated the floral and decor for the event, including Lindsay’s Pinterest-worthy bouquet with blooms in soft shades of peach, pink, purple, and ivory. The photos of the oh-so-happy bride twirling in her Jenny Packham gown are guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

After seeing our Instagram feed full of beautiful shots from the Cannes Film Festival, today we are dreaming of going there ourselves! From the pristine beaches, to the colourful Promenade de la Croisette, to the renowned hotels and chateaus in the vicinity, Cannes is the ultimate place for a glamorous destination wedding or honeymoon. We can't imagine more picturesque venues than Chateau Diter or Chateau de la Napoule in neighbouring Mandelieu-La Napoule. And for accommodations? We love the Carlton Cannes (which you may recognize from To Catch a Thief!) or the famous Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in nearby Antibes.

Eastern traditions meet contemporary design in this beautiful styled shoot captured by Belluxe Photography. Creative producer Hasti Maloufi from La Vista Events wanted to showcase a modern take on an Indian wedding using a romantic colour palette of coral, ivory, and metallic accents —the results are truly stunning! An intricate henna pattern inspired many of the design components, including the stationery by Uniquity Invitations and cake from Ganache Patisserie.
Our team fell head over heels for the floral displays Tala Florist created for the shoot, especially the opulent table arrangement that gorgeously cascades down to the floor. The team at Kunioo was on hand to capture all of the luxe inspiration on film, and you can see the shoot come to life in their behind-the-scenes video at the end of the post.
