Petrina's Wedding

When one of my most favourite customers and handbag devotees, Petrina, announced she was getting married I was very excited for her. Then she announced she was having handbags instead of flowers and that she wanted me to design them and excitement grew to a little panic - I mean these bags had a very important role in her big day! Luckily Petrina is the most relaxed of clients (not a 'bridezilla' bone in her body - even though I upped and moved to Melbourne in the middle of making them!) and it proved to be a fun project.

Petrina supplied the silk that her bridesmaids dresses were made from and we went with gathered flowers and lots of beads (of course the bride had extra special beading and extra flowers but the bridesmaids still had some sparkle).

These are the first pics of the stunning bride and her beautiful day that I've just seen and I think the idea of bags instead of flowers is a winner - look how beautifully it matches her shoes....
Whilst of course I am thrilled with how the bags worked with everything - I was blown away by the cake being decorated in a replica of the bag - how adorable!

And what a beautiful Brisbane day...congratulations Petrina and Daniel!
