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…

The Boat Shed – London Warehouse Vibes by the Sea

Blog posts have been boat shed-heavy lately… but that’s just because we’ve got so much great content at the moment! We were eagerly awaiting the professional edited photos from our recent Boat Shed open day and boy, Weddings by Tom, did NOT disappoint. At the open day we really wanted to showcase the space and demonstrate how it could look for an event. We set up the space for a photo shoot back in March with a kitsch, colourful theme and this time I wanted something a little different. I still wanted the relaxed/rustic look because, lets face it, it…
