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

The chances are you won’t have planned anything like this before – and even if you have, it most likely wasn’t for yourself, so there were different levels of emotional attachment to it – so it’s a totally unique experience with totally unique flashpoints. In short, there’s a lot of new territory, a lot of expectations, and a lot of pressure that can create the perfect breeding conditions for wedding anxiety to reign supreme.

If you’re feeling wedding anxiety whilst you’re in the planning stages, our advice on how to deal with it is not “Get over it” – in fact, today’s Number 1 Top Tip is to …
