An ethereal fairy tale styled shoot full of dreamy, woodland wedding inspiration created by a small team of creatives, who you will find listed at the bottom.
Scroll through for paper butterflies, gorgeous florals and smoke bombs!
I wanted the stationery to nod towards the ‘Fairytale’ theme but the design to remain elegant enough to suit lots of couples and their different wedding styles. I instantly thought of butterflies and knew I wanted to bring a unique element to the stationery, so I chose to keep the overall design very simple with a minimal palette to compliment the aesthetic.
Butterfly shapes were cut into each card so they could be folded up and appear to sit on the stationery. I designed invites, save the dates and menus to match for the shoot.
The beauty of styled shoots is that I get a chance to try out innovative ideas I have brewing. Following the fairytale theme, I wanted to make some fun, alternative place settings a little different to the normal place cards. So I hand painted names on apples (my inspiration was Snow White!) and finished them with paper butterflies – I was really pleased with how they turned out and think they would be a great talking point amongst guests too!
I also made some laser cut pieces, a ‘happily ever after’ cake topper, cocktail stirrers and little butterfly place settings with engraved names that would make perfect favours too, all in frosted white acrylic.

Last month I shared some beautiful images from Jo Bradbury‘s The Midland in Morecambe shoot. There were so many stunning images I had to share just a few more. If you’re planning an Art Deco inspired wedding I’m sure these will help you inject a little sparkle…
The Midland Hotel, Morecambe is a beautiful Art Deco building so I wanted to design a bespoke table plan to compliment the architecture. Inspired by the hotel’s sign, I laser cut the couples names to create a 3D header from which lists of individually hand cut guest names hung from, with ribbon. Each of the five tables is numbered with a laser cut, gold glitter number with hand stitched black tassels. Seating plans don’t have to be boring, they can compliment the styling and create a fun talking point for your guests 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!
