The inspiration behind it was to make it a bit fun and different than the usual pale, pastel colour palette.

The idea was to match the bright colours with contemporary stripes which not only toned down the bright colours but added a sleek and stylish look to the shoot.

The venue was perfect with the lovely textures of the natural wooden tables with contemporary and coloured brick work styled walls.

The table lined with a handmade black and white striped runner, styling with items such as the modern clean cut glass tea light holders and glass candlesticks created the modern/ contemporary look which worked perfectly with the wild, vintage bouquet and flowers. The vintage florals modernised by the modern straight lines on the Black and White table runner.

I had some white calligraphy decals made by Nineteen to create the acrylic menus and place names. This was my favourite part of the shoot. I’d seen this before and wanted to create it as I see this being an up and

We were all really keen on the idea of using green as a soft natural, calm colour against the harsh brickwork of the venue and also it fit very nicely with the Green Door Store itself. I added touches of yellow to the flowers to highlight some of the yellow detail in the venue and also some whites to lighten and brighten.

Our inspiration was the Green Door Store, a music venue local to us in Brighton. We loved the exposed brickwork and got pretty excited about styling the venue. The shoot evolved from there, once we had our rock and roll venue we found a couple of really stylish models and the shoot built itself around what we thought would work with them, the look took a bit of a retro 70’s turn. Once we found our beautiful model Danika we felt that a bridal jumpsuit was the only way forward!

The colour green became a real focus for us so finding

Styling Tips From World Inspired Tents Autumn Open Weekend…

They were joined by a whole host of fantastic suppliers, including Knots & Kisses who are also part of the MMU team, and went above and beyond to make their tipis look out of this world! Natalie from Meadowsweet Vintage and Jan from Granny Janny’s Bunting were on hand to style the event with beautiful and practical looks to inspire the couple’s for their own big day.

The delicious aroma of fresh rosemary, sage and thyme mingles with wafts of lavender, eucalyptus and wood smoke. We’re in tipi heaven, otherwise known as the World Inspired Tents Open Weekend.

Being asked to style this event is both a privilege and an immense pleasure, which both of us have enjoyed now on several occasions. World Inspired Tents requested a green and white natural theme this time, which we interpreted in several different ways across the tables, from very rustic through to elegant glamour with flickering candlelight, white bunting and fairy lights as unifying elements throughout the space.

Advice For Newly Engaged Couples…

Love is all around…

Christmas and New Year is the time for family and loved ones, and usually brings us a fresh wave of newly engaged couples. If you’re reading this then chances are, you are one of them…if so – BIG congratulations!!

So, what now? It can be easy to lose your head in the clouds (or Pinterest!) so I’ve got some top tips for you if you’re feeling a tad overwhelmed by all the decisions that lie ahead…

Get ready for questions…

‘Have you set a date?’…’Am I invited?’…’How did he propose?’…Friends and family will be excited for you so get ready for your engagement to be the topic of conversation!

If you don’t want to give too much away, or you haven’t made any decisions yet, something like ‘We’re looking at having a Spring wedding’ or ‘We plan to have a long engagement to allow time to work things out’ should stop too much pestering.

At this point, don’t commit to inviting someone or making them part of your wedding party if things may change – trust me, it will save you a headache in the long run!

Guest list & budget…

This is by no means your final guest list, but putting together an initial draft will give you an …

Elvis + Priscilla Bridal Shoot for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine…

Priscilla + Elvis….

Earlier this year I styled on a fashion editorial shoot alongside Alex from The Bijou Bride for Rock n Roll Magazine.

Kat and photographer Lisa Devlin wanted to create a Priscilla, 1960’s vibe, bridal shoot at The Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton. As the idea for the shoot developed we decided that you couldnt have a Priscilla without celebrating her partner Elvis… the King of Rock n Roll!

Alex said ‘Approaching the fashion styling for this shoot I wanted to put myself in a modern day Priscilla’s shoes rather than focus on replication. There are Sixties influences throughout but with a contemporary twist. The stunning scalloped lace detailing on the Katya Katya Shehurina illusion dress and the bow details on those incredible Charlotte Mills bags and shoes are undoubtably retro in feel.

It was such a blast to then take a masculine approach with our beautiful model. The King of Rock & Roll has had such a mighty influence on both men and women’s fashion. And of course there just had to be a tassel element. This Otaduy ‘I Do’ embellished leather fringe bridal jacket is all kinds of amazing. It was important to maintain a subtle sass throughout the Elvis aspect so you’ll note touches of lace, elegant heeled sandals and
