Here, Steve King, Managing Director at Bottled & Boxed, shows you how to design the perfect drinks menu…
I have been a wedding photographer for 8 years now. I have learned so much along the way and evolved as a photographer and a human being! I have had quite a few evolutions of my logo and the colours I use to represent my brand but have never really thought about who I was as a photographer or who I wanted to put out there to my clients and audience.
That was until…lockdown! Lockdown stopped all weddings and businesses with the industry. I had to step away and look after my family, as everyone did. Home schooling, support my teacher husband, just get through it.
I could look at these photos for hours. I think that’s part of the magic of Clare Lloyd‘s creations: the intricacy of what Clare makes and the tiniest details make her bridal accessories so captivating. Today’s blog captures a stunning bridal collection by Clare alongside the most beautiful styling touches from some of our favourite wedding brands. In this post you’ll find inspiration for a modern luxe bridal look with breathtaking dresses, amazing stationery and glorious florals. It’s the hair accessories which have my heart. In Les Fleurs Clare Lloyd weaves the tiniest of glass beads with delicate white gold leaves and handcrafted flowers in pastel shades on layered twists of soft gold, creating these stunning heirloom pieces for her brides.
I jumped at the chance to feature this shoot because not only is it beautiful, it feels REAL. Let me explain. Styled photoshoots are a wonderful part of what wedding suppliers do. It’s a chance for creative minds to come together and bring their ideas to life, to inspire couples who are planning their weddings. But sometimes they’re so perfectly posed they feel unattainable, too beautiful. This one though, this made me smile. It’s vibrant and colourful, with simple styling touches and breathtaking florals. The dresses and jumpsuit (because we’ve 3 outfits to show you today!) are stunning – and model Dani wears them like the most joyful bride in the world. Her natural smile lights up these pages, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing this gorgeously achievable wedding inspiration with you today. Huge thanks to lovely Maddy from Wedding Paint for sharing this with us. The images are by talented local wedding photographer Sophie TC Photography, who introduces the shoot and styling touches below, explaining how it all came about. There’s a full supplier list for you to check out just below.
No frills, more fun. Today’s wedding is unreal. The vibe is basically party-of-a-lifetime, times a million. Lindsey and Seb are an amazing couple (and ridiculously good looking, the pair of them) whose (pre-covid) wedding was ALL about celebration. Forgive us for sharing a wedding without focusing on the little details – because it’s really important for us to show you it doesn’t have to be about the decor, or the flowers, or styling.
