Sophisticated  bridal hair couture is Ulyana’s specialty although her styles are often infused with an undone and relaxed finish more than likely influenced by her Australian lifestyle.

Cara spent time training with Ulyana Aster and Tonya hairstylist (another must follow account) and their influence has lead Cara to create her own effortless approach to hair for modern bride. @caraclyne.bridal

One Fine Day wedding Fair Sydney, 2019

I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my first weekend back in Sydney than at the One fine day wedding fair! The two day event showcased the latest Australian bridal trends with the runway show set in the dramatic sandstone backdrop of the Bangroo cutaway. I was front and centre for the first runway show of the weekend and did not miss a single moment as over 80 incredible looks including Bridal, Menswear and Bridesmaids shimmied down the runway.
Australian fashion is always a breathe of fresh air, never over complicated, easy on the eye and always willing to try something a little different. The runway was filled with plunging necklines, cut away backs and the dreamiest skirt and top combinations you ever did see!

Wedding decor included elements of earthy tones with boho rugs and white backdrops for the minimalist bride or an abundance of hanging greenery and vines paired with crystal chandeliers, pomas grass and soft pastels for an elegant english garden vibe.

For those of you that didn’t make it put it in your calendar for next year and for now sit back and enjoy a runway recap of my favourite looks captured by One Fine Collective

There is always a place for minimalist bridal hair and this season brings a modern twist to the classic chignon. Middle parts with lived in texture brings a fresh modern feel to this effortless look, that is perfect for the "non-bridal up-do".

Boho Elopement Inspiration

I have been impatiently waiting to share this dreamy collaboration filled with rose quartz crystals and boho accents since the moment it was shot back in April. Captured in one of my favourite locations in Toronto The Great Hall, with its impeccable natural lighting,  white walls and art deco accents this space is a blank canvas waiting to be transformed.  Working with a group of industry talents like this boho dreams were destined to be created.

The shoot had  many layers to get excited about beginning with an  intimate boudoir session with our bride-to-be wearing a gorgeous bespoke bridal robe and tussled waves it made me wonder why I didn't make time for getting ready pictures like this on my own wedding day!

I always like to have a plan in place for the hairstyle when working on a styled shoot however when  I arrived on set I was completely inspired by all the props from Turkish rugs to a floral anklet, and that was before I saw the head piece I would be working with! I am a big believer of less is often more when it comes to hair and  I wanted to add a layer to the hairstyle that connected the movement and structure of the hair piece to the hairstyle and the playfulness of both outfits.

Get lost in the prettiest shades of rose quartz captured by Lea and styled + planned by June Bloom events.

Spring Inspired Styled Shoot

 Styled shoots are such a wonderful opportunity for local creatives to get together behind one concept to express their creativity and to push each other into new creative spaces that aren't always practical or available when working with our own clients. The Spring inspired styled shoot brought together many talented women that I have admired from a far and only dreamed of collaborating with on a project like this! 

 With the brightest of blooms and the most romantic of dresses by Win desgins I knew the pressure was on to create something equally as beautiful with the hair.  When I saw Kei from Quill + Oak create  the most beautiful flower combs in a matter of minutes I knew I couldn't look past these adorable blooms as a focal piece for the hair.

Rebecca of Wee Three Sparrows was a master at capturing the vibrancy and playful scenes that transpired in a small studio bursting with wonderful  women, earl grey cupcakes and the most mouth watering meringues I have ever tasted.

One Fine Day Wedding Fair, Sydney.

The One Fine Day wedding fair was held at the newly opened Barangaroo cut away earlier this month, a spectular partially outdoor venue on the edge of Sydney Harbour. The One fine day fair provided a selection of  perfectly curated vendors, featuring your must have staples such as florists, photographers, cake makers and bridal wear as well as a quirky DIY screen printing station where you received your own  take away print.  There was also a collection of  VW camper vans in a rainbow of pastel shades! Tell me who wouldn't want to arrive in a mint green camper van on their wedding day?

The bridal runway show was filled with fun, unique and wearable bridal gowns with refreshing skirt and top combinations, low back gowns and off the shoulder dresses there was nothing ordinary about any of these gowns!

Tickets to the One fine day fair were extremely well priced and you could upgrade to a VIP pass to gain access to the exclusive VIP space with complimentary canapés, cocktails and front row access to the fashion show and a take home  goodie bag.

After a chambord cocktail, an abundance of cake samples and an overload of inspiration I left the One fine Day Fair feeling like I could  get married all over again! And yes I will be getting the VIP ticket next year!

The Next One fine Day fair is in Melbourne May 6 + 7 2017.

Bridal Hair Trends Spring 2017

Get ready to bear those shoulders! The strapless gown now has some serious competition with off the shoulder gowns taking over Spring 2017 runways. Plunging necklines and oversized bows were also wedding dress trends seen on ready-to-wear runways. As any designers focused on bold and elegant designs this season ideal for the modern bride, bridal beauty took a soft and natural approach with effortless hair and minimal makeup featured through the Bridal Market 2017 shows.

Braids, knots, twists, buns and romantic versions of the classic chignon are the latest updo trends. With brides keeping the attention of the face with the detail of the braids and knots adding drama at the back.


Light as tulle veils adorned with fresh flowers graced the Marchesa runways. Veils were also accent with embroidery, lace and beading with trains ranged from a shorter church length to a Royal cathedral style.


Marchesa's dreamy dresses were perfectly paired with braided crowns and jewellery to add more dimension and detail to this romantic look.
