Our Twilight Evening was beautiful on April 27th and I was lucky enough to have amazing suppliers from Perth's wedding industry involved. My special guest and blogger for the evening was the one and only Laura from Beau Belle.
We first met one another whilst Laura was bridal dress shopping. We just hit it off! Now I follow her every move and love her business. Laura works very closely with me. Visit her website www.beaubellels.com.au
I knew it would be an elegant showcase when all the vendors I contacted could attend and the weather was gorgeous. Good luck was on my side. All I needed to do was make sure the models & dresses looked as stunning as possible. I love the Pronovias label, it allows my brides as Herve Moreau says, "to be beautiful, be elegant, be yourself."
2019 trends for this fashion label are exclusivity, tailored and customised, fine fabrics, silk, sexy silhouettes, embroidered details, sparkle, sophistication, and most importantly a dress for every type of bride to be! From Beach Wedding, Bohemian, Chic, Vintage, Casual & Simplicity there is a wedding dress style for you.
I will be organising many different events this year, in my Perth Boutique to show our beautiful clients, that here at Samantha Wynne it's about relationships & supporting one another during a very special time in a woman's life. I often find myself advising, caring & just being there for my client's when they need me the most. The "mum-side" in me kicks in! Everyone needs a cuddle once in a while, we wouldn't be human otherwise.

Here are the following amazing businesses that helped, supported & assisted me in making sure our first Twilight Event was a huge success.

I like letters. I think deep down I always have but it wasn't fully obvious to me until I had my first ever calligraphy lesson with Gaye Godfrey- Nicholls in early 2013. It was a beginners class and we were learning Italics, a well-known, traditional calligraphy script. Writing with a nib and ink was a whole new world to me. I seemed to pick it up quite easily though compared to the other students, which encouraged me a lot.
I soon discovered that as valuable as it was learning traditional scripts, my heart was aching to attempt some modern calligraphy styles. I purchased an online course from Molly Jacques and began teaching myself her modern calligraphy style. I loved how there were less rules and more opportunities to create your own unique alphabets. Around this time I was also introduced to brush lettering which produces great textures within your letters. My all-time favourite types of lettering are those that embrace mistakes and imperfections.
A year ago I was undecided on what direction I wanted to take my lettering and I remember listening to some advice from Seanwes on how to discover your passion. He suggested examining your Instagram feed and observing what type of people you are mostly following. I'd guessed that there were a lot of calligraphers and hand letterers on my feed but what surprised me was the amount of street artists I was following. This one moment opened my eyes to my street art obsession. I looked back at my past and realised I had never missed an opportunity to discover street art especially when I was travelling.
This was when I decided I wanted to create lettering murals. You can contact jess
