    BEING CIRCLES, they have no beginning and no end and thus represent eternity, renewal, wholeness, and perfection.

    While the wedding gown may be the centre of attention on your wedding day your engagement and wedding rings, like your commitment to each other, should last forever. Rings are a symbol that will be worn every day and are ultimately an important investment that deserves time and consideration.

    Coming from a trade with skills perfected over hundreds of years handmade rings are crafted with love.

    They are individual, inherently stronger and made to last a lifetime.

    In purchasing from a qualified jeweller you can be part of the designing process.

    From discussion regarding design to the selection of stones a handmade ring results in a more meaningful creation.

    The process should be an exciting, romantic and fun experience.

    It is also a purchase that should be informed.

    The diamonds in an engagement ring are where the majority of costs are so it is important to know what you are looking at.

    Lili Fine Jewellery are the only manufacturing jewellers on the Surf Coast where you can meet and discuss directly with the jeweller about your ring, made to order. Lili Fine Jewellery is located at the Corner of Pearl Street and Boston Road, Torquay, 3228. Phone 03 5261 9999 or visit www.lilifj.com.au for more.

    A ring symbolises a decisive mark of commitment, promise of ultimate love and devotion.

    Diamond cutCut should not be confused with shape. Shape refers to the general outward appearance of the diamond such as round, emerald, or pear.

    Diamond clarityMost diamonds contain some inner flaws, or inclusions, that occur during the formation process. The visibility, number and size of

    these inclusions determine what is called the clarity of a diamond. Diamonds that are clear create more brilliance, and thus are more highly prized.

    Diamond colour When we refer to a diamonds colour, we are referring to the presence or absence of colour in white diamonds. Ideally you try to achieve

    the whitest (or most colourless) diamond affordable.

    Diamond carat weightCarat is the unit of weight by which a diamond is measured. Because large diamonds are found less commonly than small diamonds, the price of a diamond rises exponentially to its size.

    The four Cs cut, clarity, colour and carat weight are terms used to identify the various characteristics of diamonds that are graded and categorised by the diamond industry.

    JAMES LOOKER said he was first introduced to photography as a teenager and has always viewed the world from a photographic perspective.

    Im a self taught photographer, born and raised on the Surf Coast, he said.

    Many years ago I was fortunate enough to begin my journey travelling the world with musician Xavier Rudd as his tour and production manager.

    Alongside working with such an inspirational musician I was able to photograph his life in all aspects and discover my passion for capturing special moments in time.

    As a way of staying true to his art and love of photography, James still shoots using film.

    Of course I also love digital photography as well, and constantly work to find a balance of both, but film is so romantic and gentle, it lends itself perfectly for capturing people in love.

    What I offer is an intimate handmade approach to photography, a boutique, quirky, more photojournalistic style.

    I love working with all weddings, especially those outside the box; in old rustic barns, magical forests, and Mum and Dads backyard.

    The word posed and oversaturated

    dont exist in my world, as they are simply not a reflection of me as a person and photographer.

    James said his aim is to capture the unsuspecting and precious moments that we reflect upon and re-live many years after an event has occurred, not an air-brushed posed image.

    I want to capture those moments and personalities and document them so that they can be re-lived for many years.

    My handmade and rustic approach flows across all my work and into the printing process, wedding albums and final touches.

    All my prints are of exhibition quality, and wont fade in a lifetime.

    Albums are individually designed without using templates and then handmade with linens and silks (for the vegan friendly), as well as prestige high quality leather for a traditional look.

    Everything I do is from a personal and passionate place, because its who I am and how I connect with people.

    James can also assist with all aspects of the wedding from venues, scheduling, event planning, make-up artists and catering.

    For more information email james@jameslooker.com or call 0418 160 164.

    FORMALLY TRAINED in photographic make-up and beauty therapy, Sharon Murphy is the name that comes to mind when the question is asked Who would I use? a fact borne out by her work in hair and make-up during the filming of the movie Blinder, which is happening in the region at the moment.

    Sharon has 22 years of industry experience and her work has also been seen in Bride magazine.

    Sharon said she had perfected all the skills required to create beauty in make-up, enhancing natural features that look minimal and
