Supplier Spotlight – Daydreamer Creative Studio

Today I’ve featured Daydreamer Creative Studio. A small business I’ve been crushing on for sometime. And it looks like most of the wedding industry have too… they’ve been involved with some super-cool styled shoots! I chatted to owner and founder Tanya about her creative business. Read on my friends. Tanya has sewn from a young age, she was taught by her great auntie. She studied Fashion Design at university and has worked in the fashion industry ever since. Tanya had her very own DIY wedding in Sept 2019 and (in her own words) “went a bit OTT”. She designed and…

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…

Italian Styled Shoot – Nature with a hint of retro Bohemia

Today we hand over to our friends, a group of wedding professionals in Italy, to talk us through one of their recent styled shoots. We love how they’ve utilised the natural environment while creating a thoroughly modern look… The Italian landscape offers a gift of a wild and true nature. Passing through hills covered by centuries-old olive trees we reached this big cane thicket. Here the light of the sun, filtered by the reeds, created geometric slices of light and a warm and golden atmosphere. The space seems to form a large container that both protects and divides. While the…

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…

Gatsby Glam – 1920s Bridal Shoot at Hayne House

As a professional makeup artist, I have long been fascinated with the roaring 20s era for fashion, glamour and sophistication. I was eager to incorporate the perfect 1920s bridal look into my portfolio for brides dreaming of a great Gatsby-style wedding… Hayne House in Kent was my natural choice for such a shoot. The ‘Former Hunting Lodge’ at Hayne House was once home to Edward Simpson and his wife. In the 1920s they would often travel to their other house at Port Lympne where they were entertained by Charlie Chaplin. I picked the luxurious colour palette of emerald green, gold,…

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…
