Sussex Florals – Bridal Bouquet Ideas

Today we hand over to Petra of Sussex Florals to talk all things bridal bouquet… The bride’s bouquet to me is the most important element to get right before we plan the rest of the wedding flowers. It not only sets the tone of the décor for the wedding, but it’s also the first thing guests see when the bride walks down the aisle. Once we get the bouquet sorted everything else falls into place. Some brides come to me full of ideas and others need a bit more guidance, but we always get there in the end. There is…

Pops of Pink @ The Giraffe Shed

The force that is Sally Gallis, stylist and planner of Luna & the Lane, has recently been involved with two styled shoots at The Giraffe Shed. Both had pink elements so I wanted to combine them into an inspirational post to show ideas for pink styling details. The super-fun, throw-all-the-pink-at-it, bubble gum pink shoot, complete with disco balls and power florals was named I Believe in Pink. The bold, edgy styling elements formed the subject for a photographers workshop at the venue. As much pink as you can throw a stick at. The shoot with more muted, contemporary elements was…

Bridal FaceTime Shoot with Tim Dunk

If Covid affected your business, how did you handle it? Did you cry? Did you moan? Or did you engage your creative brain and think of ways to pivot/thrive? Until last year Leeds-based Tim Dunk was best known for his creative, alternative wedding photography. When it all hit the fan last year Tim came up with FaceTime photo shoots as a Covid-secure idea to get creative, lift people’s spirits and raise money for a food bank charity. I took part in a shoot with Tim right at the beginning of the first lockdown. I remember how out-of-sorts I was feeling…

Juxta-posy!

I ended up doing an impromptu creative photo shoot on my daily exercise last week! Here’s how it came about. When dreaming up ideas for blog content I thought about the FaceTime photo shoot I did with Tim Dunk waaaay back at the start of the first lockdown. I thought it would be a cool idea to see if we could do a bridal shoot via FaceTime. I contacted Tim and he was in! So then I had a quick think about who our model could be. It had to be someone with a suitable dress and accessories, and someone…

How To Plan A Micro Wedding

Today we hand over to Hampshire-based wedding photographer Jason Williams for his advice when it comes to planning a micro wedding… Without trying to state the obvious, Covid has thrown more than a spanner or two into the wedding works. What we used to take for granted has been taken away from us, and that thing we humans crave most – human closeness – is now almost a long forgotten dream. If you were to list things which describe a ‘wedding’, human closeness would be on that list. The days of 100+ people all gathering to celebrate are well and…
