Venue Partner for A Darling Affair – Gold Coast

You’ve all been very patient over the last few months as we’ve set the wheels in motion for 2014. We’ve been busy little bees behind the scenes setting up some new and exciting things leading in to the new year. So here is announcement number 1 for 2014. A Darling Affair has secured a venue partner in Rabbit + Cocoon – a dedicated creative precinct in Miami, the heart of the Gold Coast.


Does the name ring any bells? You might remember that leading in to our Gold Coast event for this year, we got up to some shenanigans at Miami Marketta…

Well, you guessed it (you clever thing), Rabbit + Cocoon is the home of Miami Marketta, a fabulous industrial venue, complete with street art, several studios housing creative professionals, and of course plenty of space for running fantastic events.

If you’ve been following us on Facebook you would have already saved the “when” for our event, Friday the 21st of February, and now you can add the “where”. A Darling Affair Gold Coast  is set to be our first evening event, and what a great night we have planned for you all!

Watch this space for more details shortly….

A night out on the Gold Coast – Miami Marketta


We headed down to one of the Gold Coast’s finest art and design markets – Miami Marketta, at the invitation of the lovely event organiser Emma Milikins on Friday evening just passed.  We enjoyed the great atmosphere, food, music and meeting so many creative folk – yes, our pockets came away a little lighter. Such a great night out and a fabulous way to let the Gold Coast locals know about our upcoming Wedding Fair.

We put together a little sneak preview into what our guests can expect at our fair this Saturday by way of a bridal makeover for two stunning ladies.

Our living display featured a lavish floral installation by Julia Rose, gowns by Begitta, and of course our models – Tatiana and Elisha.

Elina Valttila was the talent behind the gorgeous hair and makeup styling to complete the bridal makeovers.


Alyce & Collette joined us to capture our shenanigans and certainly brought the party with them, those girls are bursting with energy and fun. Here are a few more of the images they snapped from the evening, enjoy!


Thanks for a great night out Gold Coast! We’ll see you again on Saturday, and this time we’ll bring the fun. 10am to 4pm at The Abbey, Cobaki Lakes – be there or be square!
