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.
