“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – Roald Dahl

From Truly and Madly – “The simplistic and raw beauty of the rock formations guided us in to a celestial dream. We wanted a clean visual palette, with translucent whites, iridescent crystals, silver cutlery and decadent marble platter – all in tune with the other-worldly landscape surrounding us. For the celestial bride, consider beaded gowns with clusters of embellishments and even more daring, a spectacular headpiece and/or cape to really captivate!”
