Milque might be a bit of a strange name for a photography business, but we wanted to create something that was white and pure like a wedding but wasn't a typical corny wedding business. Run by Nat Lynn we are a photographic studio with a team of photographers. We are all passionate about our photographic story telling. Our style has a modern, fashion influenced, photo-journalistic approach, creating + capturing those natural moments.
We all know how busy we can get in our everyday lives and for some of us who are lacking in the organisation department, imagine how hard it will be to also organise a wedding on top of your day to day calendar!
Did you know that the average bride spends 120 – 150 hours planning her wedding? If your groom is a helpful kinda guy, he might pitch in but let’s be real – our men prefer to leave it up to the ladies to figure it out. We honestly think some of the ladies would prefer it that way too.
For some Australians, hiring a wedding planner/stylist may seem a little ridiculous and unnecessary, but there is just so much that goes into the planning of a wedding.
A wedding planner/stylist can help bring your dream day to life, in line with any budget you may have. They are the ones who will ask all the right questions; and being in the industry, they know how much things cost and where to get the best deals. They’ve got the knowledge and connections and if anything goes wrong in the lead up to your big day, your wedding planner/stylist is the person who can deal with it for you. Did you know that many wedding planners/stylists can actually help their clients save enough money on their wedding day to cover the cost of hiring them? How awesome is that?!
Everything we’ve said sounds great doesn’t it? But, what’s the number #1 reason to look into hiring a wedding planner/stylist? STRESS REDUCTION! Weddings are beautiful, however; they can be very stressful for couples especially if things are going wrong at the last minute. In most cases, the wedding day is a whirlwind. It can go so quickly, so its best to be able to enjoy every single minute of it without the stress. Believe us, you will thank your wedding planner/stylist as a result. Just make sure you find someone who will work with you to create your dream wedding.
If you are interested in a vintage style wedding, we recommend Judi from Little Gray Station. Judi is amazing at what she does!
Here are a few photos from one of the recent shoots we collaborated on. Gorgeous!

Today, we wanted to share a beautiful shot from one of our favourite MILQUE couple shoots.
Can’t you just feel the love?!
When it comes to wedding shoes, the team at MILQUE have seen it all.
White, silver, beige, cream, ivory, pink, blue, red, satin, sequined, sparkly beach flats, open toed, closed in, strappy or sky high (beauty is pain!) Jimmy Choos. Whatever your preference, your shoes are an important part of your big day.
If you are looking for something old or something borrowed, why not wear your mother’s wedding shoes if she still has them? Or you could come very prepared like one of our MILQUE brides last year who had 7 (yes 7!) pairs of Christian Louboutins that she changed into throughout the day.
Add a splash of colour like Nat Lynn, head photographer at MILQUE who wore a pair of gorgeous pink glitter peep toes with cute bow detail [pictured].
Your wedding day is your big chance to wear the shoes you have always dreamed of. Many of our brides spare no expense, but whatever the cost there are going to be a few common issues you could be met with on your day.
Being uncomfortable in your wedding shoes is one of the last things a bride will want to deal with. Most time will be spent on your feet but if you follow some of our handy tips, your feet will thank you.
Its the morning of your big day and the weather is gorgeous; not a cloud in sight…
You’ve religiously checked the forecast leading up to this moment, but then… dum dum duuuuuumm…. Clouds appear, the sun is blocked out and its suddenly overcast. You start cursing your iPhone weather app, the TV weather girl and the Bureau of Meteorology.
Bad or unexpected weather can creep up on us at the most inconvenient moments and your wedding day is no exception. Don’t let it spoil your plans!
At MILQUE, we always tell our clients to be prepared for anything on their big day.
Here are some of our tips rain, hail or shine…
