Matt & Kim for First Comes Love


Matt wears Acadamee Blazer, Insight Shirt & Bow Tie from The Fox Hunt; Kim wears Grace Macri dress with flowers by Jappalin at Flower Talk.


I love weddings, in fact, I think I may have a case of wedding fever, which is apparently slightly less contagious than Bieber Fever (from which I am also suffering). Weddings are generally such joyful events which are a pleasure to be a part of, and the team at All Of The Above Creative think so too, which is why we’re having a stall at First Comes Love. An ‘alternative bridal fair’ (and not in the goth/emo sense), First Comes Love caters to couples who don’t want their big day to be formal and lacking in personality. Run by the amazingly talented Leah & Angela from Mitchell & Dent, the inaugural fair will feature stalls from boutiques, florists and designers such as Her Handpicked Harvest, Flower Talk, Fox And Rabbit, Test Tube, pinchandspoon, Little Gracie, On A Whim and many others.

To get into the First Comes Love spirit, Cameron Etchells, Nicole Forde and myself enlisted a lovely local couple, Matt & Kim, to pose for a faux wedding shoot in Hyde Park. I think you’ll agree that the finished shots are super duper cute.

If you’re getting hitched, or know somebody who is, be sure to come visit us at First Comes Love, which is on upstairs at the Oxford Hotel in Leederville from 12-6pm this Saturday, June 18, and Sunday, June 19.

Last week I had the pleasure of assisting @foxandrabbit_ with a mammoth 10 hour task - assembling two 5m long suspended greenery displays for a Perth Writers Festival event in Nedlands. We stayed at the hall til 1am to finish it and were absolutely exhausted when it was done and dusted. Though the resulting displays were torn down by the council before they could ever be seen by anyone (bureaucracy at its worst), I had a heck of a lot of fun helping Bec, Fliss & Emma assemble them!
