Wonderfully splattery watercolour wedding style ideas from The Forge, with the Little Wedding Helper

Hello there lovely people! It’s a creative day for me in every possible sense – I’ve been writing some beautiful invitations for a friend this morning and will be spending the next couple of hours discovering all the lovely weddings and shoots in my inbox… but first I have to share this stunning creative styling from The Forge in Bristol. I LOVE the paint splatter stationery and beautiful calligraphy by De Winton Paper Co, the colourful styling by lovely English Wedding Directory member Kirsten (Little Wedding Helper) and glorious images. This is wedding styling for artistic souls and I hope you adore it as much as I do! Happy Tuesday everyone!

Tucked away in the middle of Bristol sits The Forge, a beautiful bespoke event space and workshop venue with huge windows, exposed brickwork, bare floorboards and a real New York loft space vibe. As soon as Kirsten Butler, aka The Little Wedding Helper, saw the space from its renovation to completion she knew she wanted to do a shoot to showcase this space and the talents of a local wedding suppliers.

The key piece of inspiration came from Kirsten’s friend Harriet who runs De Winton Paper co, specialising in calligraphy and watercolours. Styling a venue is a little like painting a picture as you start with a blank canvas, a palette of colours and then layer up the details until you create a beautiful and unique look. The quality of light at this venue is amazing and could almost be an artists studio.’

Working together with Harriet and a newly designed stationery suite, Kirsten created a mood board that brought colour and detail to the space. ‘With every shoot I design and style, I want the details to be obtainable and practical to real couples. It’s the little details that are important and this shoot was bursting with them. From the brush strokes on the biscuits to the coloured glassware, there was colour everywhere!’

Flowers help soften an urban space like The Forge and Emma Norton showed how a floral garland can create a beautiful centrepiece on a table. The flower crown she created was even worn home by one of the models as she loved it so much! Emma Buston from Bake my Cake created an incredible cake, cookies and meringue kisses with brushstroke details. Grace Kingsley created a different look for each showcasing her creativity and talent working with two brides and the style of dresses we had from Flossy and Willow.
