A short while ago Jo Bradbury approached me to join a group of fellow wedding vendors and collaborate on a wedding photo shoot at The Midland in Morecambe. I jumped at the chance and donated a few pieces of stationery to compliment the beautiful costal venue that boasts a relaxed Art Deco elegance. It was great fun and so lovely to work with such talented people, thanks again Jo your photographs are truly beautiful!
As there were a handful of different looks and settings from the day I’ve decided to split them up across a few posts and I will be sharing a few of my personal favourites over the next week.
I love this bridal look so much – relaxed hair, simple make up, a pretty head band, a delicate cover up with a tulle skirt…heaven!
I hope you love these photos as much as I do and find a little inspiration for your day too.

Wedding Photographer, Jo Bradbury has been busy the last few months organising an Art Deco inspired shoot at The Midland, Morecambe. It happened last week with an amazing team of suppliers and I was lucky enough to be asked to provide the stationery. The full shoot will be available really soon (I’m just heading off on my jolly’s so you will probably see it before me!) so I wanted to share a little peak featuring my gold foiled, laser cut and hand covered, glitter table number. I can’t wait to see the shoot in full, it promises to inspire all you lovely, Art Deco Brides and Grooms!
Sonia came to me last year with such a lovely idea for her and Chris’s invites I couldn’t wait to get started and these invites have now become a firm favourite of mine.
Sonia wanted the invites to reflect the couples cultures and for the stationery to incorporate two Indian elephants, Chris’s elephant with a colourful tartan print and Sonia’s inspired by the paintings from the Indian Elephant Festival. As they were having Indian and Scottish celebrations three separate invites were needed and so Sonia wanted these to be defined with foil edging, gold for the Indian invites and silver for the Scottish invites. To really let the edging sing we duplexed the card to double the weight to 700gsm creating a deeper edge to really show off the shine! Both sets also came with RSVP postcards and information cards. The envelope flaps were letterpress printed in black with the couples elephant motifs.
I loved the whole idea for these invites and the thought Sonia put into them and the use of multiple process and finishes makes these invites extra special. Plus I love elephants so I was always going to love doing these!
