sunday love: a cute vintage travelling van

I came across this amazing little vintage caravan Frankie by Kara Rosenlund in the latest copy of Real Living Magazine. It is a super cute travelling wares van full of amazing homewares. Kara visits the local Brisbane markets selling her gorgeous finds. I can't wait to visit this little van one day

sunday love: a hot air balloon family shoot

I love family portraits. They are such a beautiful way to capture family milestones and how the little ones grow up so fast. 

This family shoot is truly amazing. This gorgeous family used one very special prop... a hot air balloon. Don't they look wonderful and happy?

wedding love: thirty weddings

I woke up the other morning to this wonderful story on breakfast television... it is the story of Alex and Lisa, a quirky couple who over three years will be driving their old camper van 'Peggy' across the world and will be getting married in every country they visit. The want to experience different wedding traditions and cultures, all while raising awareness for UNICEF. 

At the end of the years of adventures and many weddings, Alex and Lisa will choose their favourite place and go back and actually get married! 

Here are some of the amazing weddings and adventures that they have had in places like England, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, El Salvador, Las Vegas, Hollywood, Seattle, Hawaii, Peru, Canada and an International Airport... just to name a few. 

If you want to read more about Alex and Lisa they have been keeping a website, Thirty Weddings, along the way.
