A stunning feature for your beautiful eyes today lovely readers: prepare to be inspired by feathers in this wonderful styled shoot from the London Wetland Centre. I was blown away by the images as soon as I saw them. Gold and vintage ceramic bunnies? Oohhhhh yes please! There’s an exclusive behind the scenes film on my Facebook page today as well – don’t miss it!
Dresses are by Charlotte Wilden – stunning gowns with all the grace of Swan Lake and then some. Feathers add softness and texture to the prettiest of concepts in cream and gold. The glorious wedding cakes by Delicieux Cakes and tablescapes are creative and exciting – and it’s the unexpected little features which make them really special. Flowers and foliage are used with charm and elegance – they’re by The Vintage Floral Design Co.
The cakes are in a world of their own. Elegant tiered designs with subtle colours and tempting shapes. Decor is outstanding: the exquisitely sculpted flowers and leaves are fabulous. And those painted lovebirds on the top tier… simply perfect. I LOVE these!

Renza told me how the shoot was created: “I must have been a flamboyant bird or a cheeky cat in my former life ; ) My love for feathers, branches & nature inspired this collaboration. Heline Bekker‘s eye for finer details made her the perfect choice to capture this event. Our main colours were cream, gold & green with a touch of white.
“The overall feel of the shoot was stylish and simplistic with a touch of magic. I used Helena’s (HT Headwear) headpieces with feathers, netting & fine lace and combined this with exquisite jewellery from Rosie Wiesenkrantz. Dresses were designed by talented Charlotte from Wilden Bride and shoes by Marsha Hall. Amanda White worked her magic with the make up & hair.
“The Wetland Centre in Barnes was the perfect backdrop for this shoot – wildflower meadows, breathtaking views of the Wetland & romantic wooden bridges with water streams.
“The ballet Swan Lake and the well known story of Alice in Wonderland inspired me to create a dessert table with rabbits, fine lace and white feather boas. The table was adorned with a selection of cakes & sweet treats. A real focus point.”
I think this is a stunning shoot from beginning to end – magical and just wonderful to recreate at your wedding venue. Play with the ideas, do! I adore the idea of ceramic bunnies and ornaments as table decorations and peeping out from foliage as tablescapes…
