Woodland Fairytale Wedding Inspiration

19th May 2019 | Posted in Styled Shoot by

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.

A little more…The Midland, Morecambe

7th November 2014 | Posted in Styled Shoot by

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…

Art Deco Gold Foil Wedding Invitations

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.

The Midland, Morecambe Styled Shoot

10th September 2014 | Posted in Styled Shoot by

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.

Relaxed Bride

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!
