Chateau Marianne Bridal Shower

Wedding Design

It’s been quite a while since we’ve featured a bridal shower here at Ruffled, and we’re delighted to share this inspiration styled by Desiree Russo and photographed by Meghan Christine! What’s a more relaxing idea for a bridal shower than drinking mimosas and nibbling on macaroons in the middle of a sweet English garden?

From the stylist, Desiree of Desiree Russo Weddings: We loved the idea of having a vintage yet modern bridal tea party as our theme. We loved having a small intimate tea the bride was able to have a good time with her girls. I also wanted to showcase some amazing home-based business women that I get to work with on a regular basis, as well as our venue was a backyard that also gets rented out. In the economy that we are in sometimes to have a great party you have to pull from what you have to work with and I think we were able to show that in our shoot!

Little Bat Photography

Little Bat Photography has an ability to capture true joy on film. Their images are playful and organic, capturing the beautiful memories that you want enjoy forever. Enjoy taking a peek at some of their lovely work below!



Little Bat Photography is about natural light and color and the brightness of happy moments, of emotion and reflection. Aiming to capture what the day feels like, rather than just what it looks like, I think of my role as photographing from the inside out, rather than the outside looking in. I want to document what guests experience, not what a vendor might see from the sidelines. You’ll find me on the dance floor, likely laughing with your friends, sometimes jumping while taking photos, being practical (helping you bustle your dress or be a bouncer when needed), absorbing the atmosphere and photographing the story it as it happens.

Jillian West of Little Bat Photography is based in San Francisco but loves to travel worldwide.

Alverstoke Barn Perth Wedding

Rustic Weddings

We always love when an Australian wedding lands in our inbox, especially from the amazing Loren Ioppolo of Nectarine Photography. Super stylish bride Caitlin brought her barn wedding dream to life with the help of close friends, family, and her new husband James. Honestly, how gorgeous is this couple?


Caitlin & James Rustic Country Wedding

From the bride, Caitlin: I had an eye for all things “farm” inspired. We wanted to make our guests feel at home for the day, have a place where they could relax under the shade of the tree’s and explore the antique treasure we had collected.

We didn’t really stick to a colour scheme – I found that whilst picking and choosing so many antiques and bits and bobs for the wedding, one colour scheme would of been limiting. As for DIY projects, they were endless! Our whole wedding was handmade! My best girlfriend made every single napkin for the place settings while my mother made the burlap table cloths, my stepfather made our signs, my brother did our chalkboard art, James and a friend made our altar doors – it truly was months and months of thrifting through stores and markets and creating the wedding we envisioned through help of great family and friends.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Take time out to breathe, relax and reflect on your own. Planning a wedding of any size can be a huge task, and this for me was one of the most crucial things to remember to do for myself. Just spending time getting a coffee and reading a magazine was the best therapy to keeping sane and loving the planning process as much as I did.

From the photographer, Loren: Caitlin spent many months sourcing rustic furniture and the like to complete her rustic dream wedding to her love, James. They discovered a delightful old barn in the heart of our dairy country that had been lovingly preserved with many interesting nooks and crannies to explore. Caitlin is a creative soul who knew what she wanted from the start. The floral vendor is a dear friend of hers to whom she allowed to create to her own hearts content. Her sister hand-stitched ‘and they lived happily ever after’ into a panel inside her dress. So sweet.
