Earlier this year I got to work with some of my favourite wedding suppliers yet again on a fantastic inspiration shoot based around Pantone’s Colour of the Year - Ultra Violet. When Pantone revealed this, I was definitely not thrilled at using this bright, almost neon purple colour in weddings but in the context of this creative direction and blended with other tones the result was stunning working with this very talented bunch!
Julia and Dmitrii are a very cute and kind couple who were super enthusiastic about planning their wedding. They came to me ultra prepared with lots of ideas at hand. Their brief was to create a modern but elegant wedding cake that would stun their guests but not so crazy that it wouldn't meet the approval of their mums, this was actually the brief to all of their suppliers - amazing but not too crazy!
Last year I predicted that semi-naked cakes - cakes covered with a bit more buttercream than the naked cakes would become hugely popular and I quickly lost count with how many of them I had enquiries for and actually made throughout 2017. 2018 has seen even more semi-naked cakes by The Sweet Stuff and cake companies worldwide as the trend has really taken off!
Planning your wedding comes with a roller coaster of emotions. From sheer excitement right through to worrying how on earth you’re actually going to have the time to get everything done! That and the worry of knowing what you actually need to be doing and when. This is where a wedding planner can help.
Newlyweds Emily and Andy married at the stunning Hazel Gap Barn in North Nottinghamshire where the venue is enrobed by rolling countryside. Their wedding photography by Sarah-Jane Ethan is really beautiful and captures the summer light and beauty of the venue in a mix of full colour and black and white.
Alex and Fraser saw one of my wedding cake designs in 'Brides' magazine (Feb/ March 2017) that they fell in love with and got in touch with me about their celebration in London in September 2017. As an out of town couple we worked via email and chatted on the phone about their big day. Their impeccable style was a great match for their chosen black and gold design and totally aligned with my personal style too.
London city dwellers Chloe and Tom chose the beautiful West Mill for their wedding venue as Tom had played there with his band We Are Bond Street when it had just opened and loved it. Having now visited myself, I can see why so many couples have fallen in love with the venue and why it was Chloe and Tom's top choice.
Having worked in the world of weddings for three years now I have learned so much and met so many incredibly talented wedding industry suppliers who make such stunning work. It's really useful for engaged couples that are planning their weddings to pass on a list of suppliers that I love and trust to them so here are a very special bunch!
Wild, wild thoughts! Wow, wow, wow! These images are stunning, the colouring and the vast location are everything! Magda K Photography conceived the idea of earthy, runaway brides and along with the other suppliers, took this editorial style wedding inspiration shoot to the peak district for an elopement wedding.
It's always so difficult choosing a small selection of images to share on a blog post and Charlotte Jopling's images of Joe and Ally's wedding was no exception. Charlotte's photography is crisp, really picks up the details as well as making colours pop but it's also really natural and just beautiful too.
