Hello lovely people, I hope you are all having a good week. Today I am sharing a wedding inspiration shoot I took part in back in May. It was with a group of incredibly talented, very lovely women, who I am lucky enough to be in this wedding industry with. We styled two different looks, and today I am sharing one of those looks for you. Read on to see lots of prettiness from what we created...
The wedding industry is full of wonderful and talented people and my favourite thing is to collaborate with fellow members, and produce something stunning to be used for all of our portfolios and social media. So when lovely Vaani from Sugar Plum Bakes asked if I wanted to join in on this day, I jumped at the chance.
Nettlewood Flowers is owned by lovely Sarah, who has a cutting garden where she produces homegrown flowers for her floristry business and other florists. We were lucky enough to be invited into her beautiful home to come together to create some wedding inspiration shots, using her stunning flowers and all the skills of the other women in the team that joined.
As you will see from the above, we were originally planning to lay the table outside - and the second look to just be in the beautiful greenhouse - however the wind had other ideas! So we set the table up away from the wind and with the beautiful backdrop of the glass, plants and the garden in the background.
As you can see, we kept the tablescape fairly simple, it was important that the beauty of the surroundings shone through. We started off with a simple white linen tablecloth and then added some texture and colour through the linens, created by super talented Roz at The Natural Dye Works. I love adding linens like this to my tables.
We continued the gentle coral colour through to the little dishes, where we popped these beautiful biscuits in that Vanni created. Simple white plates were used, in order to be a neutral setting for the detailing. Napkins were tied and loosely styled onto the setting with the menus from Wildflower Illustration gently placed to the side. Vintage glassware and antique cutlery were also added, from my prop collection.
Finally to the table, beautiful blooms were placed in glassware that Sarah and Leigh from Leigh Chappell Flowers cleverly created. The clean and simple lines of cut glass continued through to the candlesticks. Vaani also popped one of her beautiful cake creations on the table at one point, which looks beautiful just sitting there. The overall look we created would be perfect for a relaxed wedding day, with simple styling and delicate touches. Don't over-do it when you have such a beautiful backdrop.
The final scene in our shoot was our beautiful bride, who looked just stunning in this beautiful setting of Nettlewood Flowers. The pretty white gown she is wearing was from The Dress in Teddington, perfectly finished off with hair and makeup by Louise Lerego. I love the shots of her with the greenhouse in the background don't you?
All of these stunning images were captured by clever photographer Maja Tsolo.
What do you reckon guys? All kinds of pretty!? Lots of inspiration for a more simple, relaxed wedding, and styling that works just perfectly in this setting. Do drop me a line if you have any questions on how I created this tablescape, or any other wedding styling questions, here - I'd love to hear from you.
