Vibrant, Elopement Inspiration at a Neon Amusement Park…

Vibrant Elopement Inspiration…

Whats not to love about today’s bridal shoot… We have gorgeous bridal separates designed by Mr & Mrs Unique supplier Lucy Can’t Dance, an awesome bouquet bursting with vibrant colour created by The Flower Arranger PLUS a epic backdrop of seaside neon amusement park.

Khandie Photography has really captured a cool vegas vibe and I LOVE the fact they found a Zoltar fortune teller game similar to the one in the blockbuster film Big!! Over to Lucy to tell us more about the shoot and the inspiration behind it…

I stumbled upon some images taken by the amazing Khandie and was blown away by the tones and colours. I love the ‘Vegas’ style neon background and was keen to collaborate for a photo shoot.

The shoot features my Soul Love grey tulle skirt. We paired the skirt with two brand new lace top designs. Both tops are made from the same unique lace. I think the relaxed bridal two pieces worked so well with the styling of the shoot.

When searching for models I wanted an alternative couple with lots of lovely tattoos. When Megan applied I was stunned by her incredible ‘Cruella’ hair, I knew this would look awesome and also show something unique that I haven’t seen in a bridal shoot so

Dark Celestial Luminosity at Elmore Court…

Celestial Wedding Inspiration at Elmore Court…

After gracing the pages of Perfect Wedding and Bridal Musings earlier this year, I think its about time I shared Part I of  our Celestial themed photo shoot.

Working alongside Alex from The Bijou Bride and an amazing team of Mr & Mrs Unique suppliers we headed to Elmore Court for a creative two day shoot. Elmore Court is a stunning 750-year-old Grade II* listed country house in the heart of the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside which is steeped in family history; providing a captivating mix of historical architecture and luxurious renovation.

For the Dark Celestial Luminosity theme we teamed a colour scheme of inky indigos and midnight blues with shiny metallics, copper and gold details to add warmth and depth.

A huge thank you as always to the team that took part in this shoot.

Spring + Summer Styling Tips From Wedding Yurts… Plus an Expresso Martini Recipe!

Lizzie from Wedding Yurts…

There’s so much beauty all around us during Spring and Summer, that it’s no surprise that so many couples take inspiration from the natural world at this time of year. Here are just a few of my styling ideas that are perfect for spring and summer, plus a recipe for a rather fabulous cocktail that your guests will love, whenever you serve it.

Firstly, let’s talk styling. When I’m on the road with Wedding Yurts, my travelling wedding venue, I love to use seasonal and local delights to decorate our handcrafted yurts. During spring and summer, the choice is literally endless but here are some of my favourite ideas:

Of course you have to include masses of seasonal flowers and there are plenty of homegrown varieties around in spring and summer. Your florist or stylist will be able to advise you, so choose what’s naturally perfect rather than using blooms that have been forced or imported. Nothing beats British peonies, ranunculus, scented stocks and narcissi! Don’t forget to consider using spring blossom or foliage and both are great options if you’re on a budget.

Seasonal menus are another must-have, so talk to your caterers to make the most of the best fresh produce. Baby vegetables and early salads are great when the weather gets warmer; …

The weddings and the couples that I love to shoot are riotous, rambunctious, explosions of spirited creativity. More people are growing confident enough to move away from traditions that mean little to them, re-working ceremonies and celebrations towards something that’s more reflective of them as a couple and their connection to community… and let’s be honest, are way more fun & memorable too.

When Cherelle from Perfectly Planned 4 You and I got together to discuss this shoot we immediately bonded over our shared love of Hackney, our neighbourhood. We adore it’s diversity and independent spirit, it’s mix of people from all over just rubbing along, doing things their own way. So over drinks at our favourite pub The Star, we gleefully plotted our dream Hackney Wedding. It would be all about the joy. The bright colour, ALL THE COLOUR. Diversity. Smashing stereotypes. A bit like a Pride after-party.

First day at school introduction to Rock n Roll Bride & Crown & Glory and your collaboration together?

Sophie and I actually met at a blogging workshop I was hosting in 2012. She’s since told me she didn’t even want to go, her friend dragged her along! Well I sure am glad she did – ha! I knew who she was as I’d seen her products featured in Company magazine a few months earlier – small world. Anyway, the workshop happened and we went our separate ways, but we both kept following each other online. A little while later I wrote a blog post
