Read on to see the prizes and MORE chances to win!

Leave a comment below to win this fabulous day out and all the loot! To celebrate the launch of my new wedding website I’m giving away an engagement shoot to one lucky couple worth $600. I’ve also asked some of the most RAD wedding suppliers around to jump onboard so we can have a fabulous day out. Check out the loot we have for you.

1. Engagement shoot I’ll take some beautiful, natural pictures of you and your partner in a loved up state. We’ll go on a little adventure and have some crazy giggles along the way. Why not use these images as your Save the Date cards, or even your thank you cards after the big day?

Savannah & Tom-171

But before we head out on our adventure, we’ll have a little visit from…

2. Makeup With Justine O Justine is a magician with a makeup brush. She’ll come and do your make up  and hair for the shoot ladies. Gents, don’t feel left out, she will make sure you look schmicko too with a bit of manly grooming (and moustache combing should you be sporting one!). You’ll both look fabulous, I’m sure you do already, but we want you to feel SPARKLY! Justine offers bridal make up as well as private lessons so you can get your game face on for your wedding day.


3. Hire a Kombi  Bella or Layla Kombi will drive us to a magical picnic spot (look at this gorgeous girl, this is Layla) and she may muscle in on some of the photos. What show ponies! Hire a Kombi offer several different beautiful vehicles for transporting your peeps on wedding days. Chauffeur driven, or self driven you can set off on adventure on your big day – or why not run away on your honeymoon in one?


4. Miss Ladybird Cakes Miss Ladybird will pack us a picnic basket of sweet treats so delicious you’ll want to squeal! As well as supplying her treats to all the best Melbourne cafes, Miss Ladybird makes off the hook bespoke wedding cakes as well as bonbonierre. I can personally vouch for how delicious her cakes are as I have appointed myself Head of Quality Control. (It’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it).


5. The Belle and the Beau The Belle and the Beau have got your back gents. And your front. And your pants! You will feel incredibly dapper in their bow tie and suspender combo (no low riding trouser action here). They also offer mini versions for the little men in your bridal party as well as matching hair pretties for the ladies.


6. Able and Game Possibly the raddest cards in town. Able and Game are popping some love cards in your goodie bag, you can surprise each other with them whenever you are feeling loved up. Or bust them out as thank yous to the important people in your life. Able and Game offer greeting cards for all of life’s moments big and small with an unsurpassed sense of humour.


7. Inky Co. All of these goodies (well, except Layla) will be wrapped up by the talented ladies from Inky Co. It will feel like Christmas! Their giftwrap is top notch and super styling. You can buy ready made wrapping kits with all the bits and pieces you’ll need, perfect for a DIY bride, and for any thankyou gifts you have for your besties.

8. The Design Den The Design Den will supply these beautiful bespoke labels (and we’ll whack ’em on some bevvies for you) so you can surprise, delight and subtly ask your Bridal party to jump onboard. 4 for the boys and 4 for the gals.


WAIT! WHAT’s THAT? something new just landed in the goody bag

  • Noula

    My wedding is going to a reflection of my journey into life and recovery from an illness that was only made possible because of my fiancé. As he always says, when i becomes we, even illness becomes wellness. It will be a huge joy to our friends and family who never thought I would make it to my 21st birthday let alone walk down the isle!

  • Belinda

    Pick me! Pick me for the radest photo shoot ever!! I love combi’s, I love dressing up, I’d totally love this! X

  • Kristin Stuthard

    My wedding will be rad because no matter what happens, or how big a budget we have, I’ll be marrying the love of my life. :)

  • Kayla Howard

    My H2B and i are fun, loving and quirky and would adore the chance to show this in a super funky way with a combi, epic photography and lots of laughs. Fingers crossed! X

  • Rose McGregor

    With a baby currently baking some pre wedding photos would be a lovely way to begin preparing for our Two weddings….One in oz and the other in Denmark!

  • Sally

    Our wedding will be rad because all our beautiful friends and family will be there to share this special moment with us. It will be a fun day filled with lots of laughter, love and a few tears..

  • Erika

    Our wedding will be rad because we’re pulling together people from all corners of the world (Cambodia, the Philippines, UK, US, Indonesia, Singapore, everywhere!) to celebrate with us over great music (vintage covers of today’s pop hits, anyone?) and great food (kangaroo and juniper for our meat-eating guests, durian samosas for dessert).

  • Georgie Gibson


    We are so so so excited to be getting married in late 2015 (if all goes to plan) and being the first of our friends to tie the knot all our friends and family are just as excited.

    We are young, fresh, silly and super in love. The plan for our wedding is to make it has enjoyable as possible for everyone (we imagine it like a big party from sunrise -sunset).

    We are booked in to get married at Poacher Pantry (country style) just outside Canberra.

    We would love for you to be part of the journey and our story.

    Please please pick us!

    Love Georgie and Samuel xxx

  • Lee

    See for yourself why our wedding will be “RAD”.
    And we have the cutest little flower girl the world has ever seen ;)

  • Li

    Our wedding will be rad as it will symbolize the joining of two families – one of Croatian/Australian descent and the other of Malaysian/Chinese heritage. We would like to incorporate unique elements of our different cultures for our big day! What better way to get prepared and be comfortable in front of the camera than to have this engagement shoot (along with all the other equally amazing prizes!) :-)

  • Buttons

    Our wedding is going to be short&sweet, and a big rockin’ party afterwards at a Tiki Bar! Not ones for tradition, I am wearing red, and he is not wearing a suit, and we are bringing our french bulldog along for the ride too! Our honeymoon will be moving to the USA next year!

  • Copes Curiosities

    Our wedding will be rad on a budget! We’re getting married in Vegas at The Little White Wedding Chapel and relying on friends to take our photos afterwards (no photos in the chapel), which could go either way!
    An engagement shoot, so we can have some professional photos to frame and share with family would be fabulous!!

  • Tara

    Always a bridesmaid and now finally a bride!! Never thought I would find the man of my dreams, let alone be lucky enough to marry him!! Two weeks engaged and on cloud 9. Cannot wait for the special day in Melbourne, whilst I start to learn all about planning an interstate wedding from Perth :-D

  • Claire

    I am so excited for the day that I get to marry my best friend Steph. Steph and I have been best friends since we were 11 & 13 years old and our wedding day is going to be a reflection of our story in front of our family and friends – our biggest supporters. Although our marriage may not be recognized by the Australian government, we are going to have the RAD-est day ever, two brides, 6 bridesmaids, 2 mothers of the bride, how couldn’t it be rad?!

  • Alexandra Head

    This prize is incredible. In so many ways this would top off our whole wedding/preparation/marriage experience!

    We are so incredibly embarrassing as a couple. We are the couple singing and dancing in the supermarket to the background music. We’re lucky that we first met at 16, so we’ve already seen the most awkward/embarrassing sides of each other… Marriage should be a breeze! Marrying this guy is the easiest and most complete decision I’ve ever made, it wasn’t even a decision, it was a given.

    To be frank, I want this prize. Nay, I need this prize. When I was in year 5, I was sure that I would win the public speaking competition. Alas, Gemma Richards won. I haven’t forgotten that but I feel like winning this, would go a long way to healing that wound…. Here’s to marrying my embarrassing equal and winning prizes!

  • Anna

    This prize is fantastic!! Il get straight to the point. My wedding is going to be a big Island wedding with a touch of elegance, chick and fun!
    Its going to be rad and colourful! Island performances, reggae band, heaps of food and loud but loving atmostphere. Been together for over 10 years and this would be just perfect!

    […] enter, head to Samara’s website and best of […]

  • Lisa

    Our wedding will be special, romantic with lots of fun and laughter. My fiancé and I knew each other all our lives but it took us until our late thirties to finally get together. Our friends and family are so happy, it will be a magical day. This prize would be a special treat as we did not get to celebrate our engagement and would love to work with you. Your work is unique and awesome!

  • Lisa Xu

    I am a huge fan of your fun, modern take on romance. My fiancé and I met while exploring Egypt and we have blossomed our relationship traveling the world and having lots of laughs along the way. So you’re photography and style is remarkably fitting!

  • lenny

    i confess! its not actually me having the rad wedding… but two extraodinary friends of mine who i’d like to nominate for this truly awesome comp. Petronella Ansell and Kris Webb of Perth WA… because seeing these two love birds so happy together… is so sweet, so sweet in fact it makes me sick! in a good way. :) id like to give them the oportunity to make there special day even sweeter! admiring your work george and big hugs to the family. one last thing from me…. “Hire-a-kombiiii!!!!!”

  • Jessie

    Miracles do happen at 5.30am on a muddy field and the surprises haven’t stopped since. Across three continents, up mountains and through coral reefs, I couldn’t have asked for a better adventure buddy. After a surprise proposal on Christmas day in front of family, we are now asking everyone to travel to Melbourne to celebrate the special event with us. There will be no theme, it will be a celebration of our relationship with the friends and family who have supported us to realise our dreams.

  • Jami

    We are having our RAD wedding in our backyard. Small assembly of our closest family and friends with YUMMY food and most traditions done our way. Everything will have a personal touch. With our son due any day now, he’ll be able to celebrate with us next year. A goofy couple, very much in love, this would be a fabulous prize for us to celebrate.

  • Sandy Sharma

    My wife has always dreamed about having an engagement photo shoot. Unfortunately, we were in such a rush to have our civil wedding ceremony that we didn’t get the chance to have any engagement photo shoot that she really wanted. I want to give this “belated” photo shoot to her.

  • Paula Martin

    My wedding will be the best wedding ever after having to postpone the original one due to fiancé being diagnosed with cancer two months before. Wedding take two will be the biggest party ever to celebrate so much. An engagement photo shoot would be the icing on the cake of beating cancer and being able to marry my one true love
