an urban affair – the photo shoot


An Urban Affair is our 2nd wedding fair and we are seriously excited about it.  After the success of A Rural Affair ‘the wedding fair for rural lovers!’ we were compelled to have another one.  So in early March 2017, we are hosting another fair with a collection of amazing hand picked vendors who are all very creative and talented and see weddings not just as their business but as their passion.  After all that’s what getting married is all about, the love and passion between a couple.

So this years theme is Urban – ‘a contemporary affair for modern day lovers’ think modern industrial, classic sophisticated and sexy urban!

To launch An Urban Affair we started with a photo shoot, and we are really thrilled with how beautiful all the images turned out.  Our location was The Merchants of Good Times Stone House Wine Bar & Kitchen, who opened early especially for us, turned all the lights and aircon on and supplied us girls with bottles of Champagne, who could ask for anything more! We seriously can’t thank them enough. On a side note, Stone House would be an amazing wedding venue.

Our 3 stunning models were real life couple Tamika and Àlix and our beautiful bridesmaid was Jade, Tamika’s sister.  It was a family affair on the day and the love between all 3 of them shows in every shot.

Our aaamaaaziiing photographer was the very talented Nichole Taylor, who effortlessly captured the feel of our wedding fair in every stunning shot.

On the morning of the shoot the girls went down to the new Beauty of Tatum located in the Jape Homemaker Village.  They were superbly looked after and made even more stunning by Kani and her team and you can see from our shots that they did a stunning job. Oh and their perfect tans were by Impact Hair Studio in Winnellie, just in case you were curious!

Our stunning wedding gowns were supplied and altered to fit by Just Formals (who have just moved to the Stuart Highway next to Dressy Dresses).

Our peach perfection bridesmaids dress was from the hidden gem Frock Me on Aralia St in Nightcliff, which seriously if you haven’t been in there you should.

All our jewellery and shoes were generously supplied by Me and My Llama in the Star Arcade, Darwin City Mall. Sometimes the little things make the shot, like Alix’s horn necklace, it was truly fab.

Lastly our lovely little bouquet of pale pink and peach peonies were given to us by Maria Okwa, who just happened to have them sitting in her kitchen looking so pretty, and if she hadn’t given them to us we definitely would have pinched them!

An Urban Affair is for 1 day only, Sunday 5 March 2017, 10am to 5pm and the location is Six Tanks on Mitchell St. Darwin City, so save the date as we’d love to see you there xo
