When it comes to your wedding, it can sometimes be overwhelming to know where to start! Having worked with a myriad of suppliers in the Australian wedding industry, I’ve put together a directory of wonderful friends whose philosophy and aesthetic compliment the stationery created at the blackline.
These are people I trust, adore and I’m so excited to be able to share their wonderful talent & bespoke services with you!
RUUSK - Tania Gnecchi
Tania is the embodiment of the word 'grace'. Her gentle and beautiful nature is magnetic; a quality evident in her philosophy of creating modern heirlooms that are 'made with love, worn with soul'. I've found every excuse over the past few years to work with her – whether it be through work or commissioning my own custom pieces and I can say with complete confidence that having Tania create your wedding rings for you is guaranteed to start your life-long romance with RUUSK.

Carte Blanche Bride - Anastasia Driver
Sometimes you meet someone who you just know is one of your creative soul mates. I first met Anastasia at one of my Melbourne calligraphy workshops when she was just starting Carte Blanche Bride and have had the privilege of watching her beautiful dream unfold & blossom. Placing emphasis on every bride's deeply personal style, attending a Carte Blanche trunk show will see you luxuriously dressed in a piece that uniquely represents who you are as a person.

Bridal Sleepwear / Everyday Wear
Natalija - Natalija Bouropoulos
There is a natural elegance to Natalija that translates seamlessly into her silk bridal collection. Mindfully designed and made in Australia, the collection includes elegant, understated yet contemporary silk camis, slip dresses, shorts, pants and robes and I cannot emphasise how beautiful it feels to be wrapped up in her silk pieces. I have become an avid fan of Natalija the label for its quality, timelessness, longevity and flexibility at translating well from the bedroom to the boardroom.

Made to Measure Suiting
Oscar Hunt Tailors - Jeremy Daunay & the team
I don't often wish I was a man. In fact, I've only had that experience twice and both times occurred in the magical showroom of Oscar Hunt. Set in a gorgeous space on York Street (complete with bar!), Oscar Hunt is a must-visit for every man who values quality craftsmanship, design and wearing a made-to-measure suit that represents his deeply personal style on his big day! And I highly recommend going along for the adventure as I've no doubt you'll likewise be awed by how incredible the experience is! Oscar Hunt has showrooms in both Sydney and Melbourne.

Scarlet & Sage - Laura Marii
I've been privileged to work with a number of wedding photographers who have been incredible at capturing clients' special days but there is something about Laura. She is the perfect antidote for camera-shyness; her soft, gentle nature puts you perfectly at ease and you feel like you've known her forever. Laura is wonderfully creative and I adore her ability to be both experimental and traditional in the way she captures her subjects. I've had the privilege of being shot by Laura and I can guarantee that you'll not only fall in love with the photographs that she takes, but with her as a new friend.
Brows and Lash Styling
Honey Tusk - Marli Stretton
Marli is a gorgeous soul & talented magician whom I've been personally visiting for a few years. Over that time, I've seen my naturally-straight lashes and brows transformed to the point I've stopped wearing make-up every day because of how they have changed my natural look and confidence. Giving your make-up artist a wonderful base to work from when achieving your natural look is so important and I've watched bride after bride that I've referred to HoneyTusk come back ecstatic about what the HoneyTusk team have been able to achieve!
