How To Prepare For A Boiling Hot Wedding Day

Hot Summer Wedding Day Tips

Sure, your wedding’s going to be cool af because you’re cool, but is the weather going to be cool as well?

When Kirsty Mackenzie got in touch about organising a Wes Anderson inspired shoot, we leapt at the idea! Wes Anderson movies are just so iconic; the design, the detail, the off-the-wall atmosphere, and don’t get us started on the colours!  

Together we brainstormed our ideas and two films kept coming up, so we quickly decided we wanted to focus on the quirky romance of Moonrise Kingdom along with the colourful glamour of The Grand Budapest Hotel 

We’re not the only Wes Anderson fans in the wedding industry – far from it in fact! As we started approaching people about this shoot, we were met with a huge amount of enthusiasm, and the final team of suppliers shared our levels of excitement about all the little extra touches we had planned. The shoot was a total delight to work on as everyone
