Festive Cocktail Recipes by Hayley from Lucky Pineapple Bars…

Christmas entertaining can so stressful, can’t it?! But with a few cocktail classics up your sleeve you WILL be the host with the most! 

Here is Lucky Pineapple’s  round up of five simple – yet super special! – festive cocktails to quaff merrily this Christmas.

Let’s get you feeling festive, not frazzled!

Gingerbread Spiced Clementine Fizz…

15ml clementine juice & gingerbread spices syrup, 1 tsp Campari, top with chilled Prosecco & stir.

Garnish suggestion: Dehydrate an orange slice and pierce with a small rosemary sprig. Attach to the side of the glass with a bamboo clip. A clementine skin twist also works well as an easier alternative to dehydrating fruit. 

Cranberry & Elderflower Fizz…

Industrial Meets Boho Wedding Inspiration at 92 Burton Road…

Industrial Meets Boho Wedding Inspiration…

We have a real feast for the eyes today with this Industrial meets Boho bridal shoot held at East Yorkshire wedding venue, 92 Burton Road.

I love the fusion of these two styles – the modern bridal styling works perfectly with the edgy industrial vibes and colourful graffiti backdrop.

Over to the team to tell us more about the inspiration and her thought process behind it…

Industrial Meets Boho Wedding Inspiration: Cool couple portrait with graffiti background

Where did you get your inspiration from? 

The concept for the shoot at 92 Burton Road, was Industrial meets Boho – two of the biggest current UK wedding trends – to create modern, distinctive inspiration which is achievable for brides.  The warehouse venue is one of the coolest and most sort after venues in East Yorkshire and there are so many interesting spots around the city to capture great images, like the stunning mural at Kelham Island, only a short walk away.

How did you find the suppliers who made this concept come to life? 

Jen from My Pretties organised the shoot & had worked with some of these amazing suppliers before & knew she wanted to involve them. Others she approached directly, as a big admirer of their work. We were so lucky to have so much talent in one place with such stunning results, I can’t recommend each and every one

Bohemian Wedding Inspiration: Outdoors lounge area for wedding guests

Where did you get your inspiration from?

I love a traditional pole marquee such as the Celeste, they conjure up images of lazy days, relaxed parties and a bohemian style of living. The mixing of textures is always fundamental to my styling and I really wanted to include elements from the emerging fashion trends of African hints and the velvet textures inspiring visions of the 70’s. I wanted to keep an air of grandeur to the shoot so the vibe was Haute Boheme, free spirited and reminiscent of an unconventional lifestyle.

Bold prints were mixed with Autumnal colours of British grown blooms from Flowers at 58, coloured glasses and matte rose gold cutlery completed the tablescape. The peachy toned candles popped against the red and pink tones of the florals whilst the fabric swags helped add a sense of intimacy to the expansive marquee.

What was your inspiration behind the shoot?

The inspiration behind this shoot was to bring together venders that believe in the same mantra. That couples should be able to do their wedding their way! There are a few alternative ideas in the shoot to inspire couples to have what they want at their wedding. For instance we had a very quirky single tier cake, I think that a lot of couples think that they should be expected to have a big three tiered cake. Why? It hardly gets eaten!! You don’t have to go crazy. We used calligraphy on foliage for name places, stationery can get pricey and can also risk looking samey. This is such a cool way of having place names! Go rummaging in your garden!! Trainers on the groom instead of shoes. Because why should everyone have to follow traditions? The wedding day should represent the couples’ style and personality.

We are also very forward thinking about being eco friendly and sustainable. All the vendors involved are environmentally conscious. The dresses from Indie
