Today’s styled shoot is a favourite – I’m biased, because I’m a little bit in it (tooo exciting!) and also because the creative team behind the images are super lovely friends from the north west. Emma Billsborough is an amazing photographer, a fabulous person and a friend I’ve known through the English Wedding Blog for years – and this shoot is one of the most exciting projects of my year.
Emma brought together a fantastic group of north west wedding creatives to show couples how to style a day with colour. Mixed palettes don’t have to be soft and subtle, they can be bold and exciting and still ooze grace and elegance.
Huge thanks to Emma for asking me to write the stationery & calligraphy for such a fabulous shoot – it was a real pleasure to play with paints for this! You can see more of what I do (when I’m not blogging!) over at Calligraphy For Weddings. I have to add: Emma came to one of my modern calligraphy workshops last year and her writing was gorgeous!
The shoot took place in the grounds and wood-panelled glory of Hoghton Tower, with the images under canvas from the fabulous Big Chief Tipis. Floral styling by Felicity Farm Flowers made every setting look divine – the colours worked together beautifully. Styling and props came from Betsy’s Living Vintage, with crockery and cutlery sourced by Betsy’s from www.eventcrockeryhire.co.uk
