Gwyneth Paltrow's Easter Lunch Table Setting

Easter is nearly here and this weekend is the perfect time to start planning your Easter lunch.  I'm going to be taking my inspiration from Gwyneth Paltrow and her table scape she created for Remodelista (PS - I have such a big crush on Gwyneth, please can we be BFFs?)  She choose a fresh take on traditional and the colour palate of robin's egg blue, lilac, pale pink and white.  There are SO MANY details I love  - the egg name tags, the potted pansies in the bowl and the long tapered candles.  I mean seriously, it is so beautiful!!! What inspiration are you picking up on for your Easter table?


Engaging: Symantha + Kenlon

We are so looking forward to Symantha & Ken's wedding tomorrow!
They are such a fun couple, just check out their engagements by Duane Peck Photography!
Ken's a video producer & Symantha was all about having a driving concept for their big day, so once we heard the words old Hollywood cinema & a love for Mad Man that was all we needed!
Can't wait for all the amazing details to transpire on Friday...did I mention there will be a cinema style candy concession station & a star studded aisle?











Many thanks to Duane Peck Photography for sharing the fun!

SO FRENCHY, SO CHIC









Join Friend in Fashion on: BLOGLOVIN ~ FACEBOOK ~ PINTEREST ~ TWITTER

Dear friends,

My first introduction to photographic extraordinaire, Sabine was a few weeks ago during fashion week, where we exchanged stories about living in France and our love of Parisian p√Ętisseries!

Over the weekend, we decided to team up and snap my absolute favourite STYLESTALKER 'Young Love' LBD (little black dress).

It was fantastic collaborating with Sabine, her photographic style is so theatrical.

I'm looking forward to sharing many more projects with you.

In the meantime, you can check out more of Sabine's work over at her facebook page.

I'm wearing:
STYLESTALKER dress
TONY BIANCO shoes
MAC 'morange' lipstick

Luv,

Reviva Weddings are featured in WeddingBells, Canada




 We are delighted that one of our beautiful weddings, from last year, has been featured, across the waters, in the Canadian Weddingbells Magazine so we thought we would share this moment with you! 
According to Joee Wong, the fantastic photographer that Kelly and Wil bought with them all the way from Toronto, the article looks even better in real life.
Kelly and Wil contacted us, not long before their wedding date, and needed help to finalise all the details of their wedding day and someone to style, decorate and oversee their stunning wedding at the Puente Romano Hotel.
It was a challenge, as despite booking the venue, Kelly and Wil had actually not been here, although we then found out Kelly had visited as a child and decided she wanted to get married here :)  Having been together for 7 years and saved up for this special day, we were very excited and honoured to be involved. 

Carla set to and finalised all the suppliers, arranged the last few details and organised everything so it all came together and I worked with Kelly to design and style her
wedding day.
The end result was stunning, it was a beautifully hot September day and the emotional ceremony conducted by the delightful Natasha was held on the beach at Puente Romano Hotel followed by a reception at the hotel´s Suite Del Mar. 
 
 
Kathryn Parr made everyone look gorgeous with her amazing hair and make up talents and Mark at Cake Marbella did us proud with his cupcakes (still have to have words with him about supplying extra though!)

LA trunk show this weekend!

I'm just putting the finishing touches on all the pretties I'll be bringing to my trunk show at Lovely LA this weekend. In addition to my dress collection, I'll be bringing some exclusive one of a kind dresses for sale off the rack (all I can say is, think pink!). Appointments are filling up quickly--call Lovely to secure your spot. I look forward to meeting all of you! xoElizabeth

The most amazing wedding dress

All I have to say is..... THIS DRESS!  Layers and layers of beautiful silk from Amsale makes for a dramatically beautiful gown don't you think?

Dramatic Spanish Style For Weddings


As many of our clients wish to incorporate an element of Spain into their weddings here, we are constantly looking for Spanish style inspirations to add touches of Spain's wonderful and dramatic culture into our weddings and parties. 

We love this fabulous shoot featured on Wedluxe using a stunning combination of black lace, red roses and golds, it reminds me of the beautiful churches we have here adorned with gold candelabras and candles. 

We have been working very hard here this winter and many of our weddings coming up this year have some beautifully designed styling and details. 

We have one in Sevilla that is going to be stunning and we will feature sneak peeks as we build up to the big day, our gorgeous vintage fan invitations are winging their way to London as I type :) 

We have a Sevillian orange rustic style wedding, fabulous vintage style lace weddings and the rest of our designs are currently well kept secrets as we reveal some stunning new ideas throughout 2012!
