Happy Friday Dotties! We actually couldn’t be happier that we’re spending the entire month talking sparkles during The Sparkle Issue. Most of our team is Melbourne based, so believe us when we say, we’re feeling the struggle of lockdown with you. However, we’re also looking for hope, and with hope, there is glitter. So we’re totally onboard the sparkle train. Let’s round up the week that was.

Melbourne urban wedding venue Metropolis Events have released a very special wedding package collection suited to these 2020 times. Meet Re-Imagined by Metropolis. With three different packages- The Wedstival, The Minimony and The Elopement. Each designed for smaller guests lists and to abide by restrictions, without losing all the wedding fun you signed up for. Chat with the team by calling  +613 8537 7300 or emailing [email protected]

Perth bridal salon Samantha Wynne has launched a jewellery collection! Celebrating the best of WA design, the brand has teamed up with Pearls of Australia & Cygnet Bay Pearls to launch a collection entitled “Star of the West”. Two years in the making, this beautiful collection of jewels is available at Samantha Wynne and Pearls of Australia.

Photographer Em Jensen has a way with retro, and so it makes sense that she’s launched takeaway polaroid packages! Just the ticket if you want something a little different for your wedding photography,  your mini wedding, your elopement or even an at-home session (to remember 2020 by?) Em’s got packages with one hour of snapping – and you can win it! Head on over to her Instagram here to enter and chat to Em on her website.

The Friday dance tunes are a must-do for us right now, so let’s hand over to Club Band (they have bands all around Australia, so consider this wedding to do ticked off!). This is the Melbourne Club band with their version of the old fave “Shutup & Dance”. Yes, let’s do that!
