Drawing inspiration from fresh the natural beauty of Tuscany, stylist Alysia from Celebrations By Alysia creates a bright wedding atmosphere to pop against an Autumn landscape. “We love Tuscany and we really wanted to work with the colour palette of Tangerine, cream and silver green” says Alysia. “The rich terracotta and autumn foliage backdrop provided by The Brides Market was a stunning Tuscan combination for our styled shoot and tablscape.”

Fruits adorn the wedding tablescape and are paired with divine fresh floral arrangements to create an atmosphere that is not only a delight for the eyes, but will also emanate a wonderful citrus aroma at the table. The bride and adorable flower girl match the tuscan inspired wedding reception with their crisp white dresses and luscious flower crowns by Bella Bloom Floral Designs.

Styling Celebrations By Alysia

As a siren of the silver screen, there’s no better way to celebrate the iconic style of Elizabeth Taylor than with a glamorous bridal shoot. Enjoy a luxurious setting, timelessly chic details and two flawless wedding day looks!

Set in a modern-meets-vintage lounge space evoking the golden era of Hollywood, a crystal candelabra stands alongside gold gilded furniture, ruby red florals and stacked books penned by fashion’s elite. An eclectic bouquet of hydrangea, poppies, roses and berries adds colour, texture and romance.

The gown features delicate floral applique, a low back and detachable tulle overlay – a choice inspired by one of Ms. Taylor’s many beautiful costumes. A bold lip, winged eye, glossy waves and striking garnet accessories complete this elegant look.

Styling Celebrations by Alysia

If you’re anything like me, you’d agree that long weekends are a perfect time to entertain. So with the long weekend ahead, what a better time to inspire you by sharing Celebrations By Alysia‘s amazing Melbourne Cup shoot. With an array of incredibly talented vendors, it is especially refreshing to see a Spring Racing celebration step away from pastels and opt for vibrant blues and deep greens instead. Consistency becomes key in this celebration, as the colour palette remains to perfection in every little detail.

by saying that we would always be part of their family. It was the most beautiful compliment we could have ever received.” Indeed, the compliments are coming hard and fast from all corners for the flourishing stylist and planner, who recently had the opportunity to work with and host global celebrity wedding designer Karen Tran in Brisbane. “Karen has a wonderful warmth and
style and she is so generous in sharing knowledge of her tried and tested designs,” exclaims Alysia. “It was an opportunity to share the magic with my industry friends and collaborators!

choose; if it’s yours, it will be amazing.
