A Colourful Wedding Doesn’t Necessarily Mean Rainbows…

When I saw this shoot it was no surprise to learn it was Photography by Vicki‘s concept (if you’ve seen her website or social media you’ll know why… she’s the queen of colour). In lockdown Vicki spent time researching colour combinations from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. She found the colour clashes evoked memories from family and childhood photo albums. The clashes seemed fearless and Vicki wanted to see how combinations from these eras could work in the wedding industry. It was an experiment to move away from typical wedding colours. These colour combos provide inspiration to couples who want…

Country Garden Styling with Bell & Bell Events

Bell & Bell Events is run by sister duo Jen and Sue. I spoke to them about their hire collection, their unique aesthetic and how they’ve kept busy during the pandemic… When Sue was planning her wedding back in 2018, she and her husband were set on creating a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. They wanted an intimate, country-style wedding with a bit of fun. Their wedding was at Cissbury Barns which, at the time, was still being converted from an old sheep barn. “A little bit of spit and sawdust was what we saw and fell in love with” says Sue. They…

Q&A with Christina from Rock the Dancefloor

I fell for Rock the Dancefloor when I saw their fun retro bridal shoot at Bobby’s in London. We all know I have a weakness for anything retro and iconic and this really got me feeling all the feels. I felt (from obsessively studying her Instagram page) that founder/creative director Christina must be a girl after my own heart, so I wanted to grill her and feature her on the blog. You’re welcome!.. Q. Hi Christina! Can you start by telling us what your vision is for Rock the Dancefloor please? i.e. what services you offer. A. Rock the Dancefloor…

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…

Styled Shoot – Edgy, Intimate, Sustainable

Earlier this year Jude (stylist and venue owner of Wickerwood Farm) and Anna (floral designer from Tales from Apple Tree House) hatched a plan for an inspirational bridal shoot. They wanted to focus on intimate weddings (sign of the times) with an emphasis on sustainability, a subject close to both their hearts. The concept of the shoot was to depict the ever-changing seasons using dried flowers from Anna’s East Sussex cutting garden, as well as Jude’s interpretation of ‘festive luxe’. It shows how a smaller, intimate venue can be cleverly used to create a mood using natural, organic materials. The…

Citrus Love Styled Shoot at Manor Barn

Today photographer Masha Unwerth shares the inspiration behind her zingy late summer shoot… This shoot was inspired by the citrus colour palette and summer Italian heat! With the end of the summer approaching I felt mesmerised by the amazing weather we still had and wanted to create something bold to inspire brides-to-be. It was important to keep this colourful shoot bold and crisp. To empower couples wanting to incorporate the vibrant colour into their wedding design. As a photographer I associate the vibrant colours of citrus fruits with Tuscan sun, which led me to the overall theme, Citrus Love. We…
