Let’s begin the new week with something spectacularly gorgeous, shall we? This stunning shoot from Sarah Maria Photography is full of colour, laughter and styling ideas for you to take away and recreate at your own wedding. There are vibrant florals, gorgeous backdrops with pretty lettering, divine dresses and fun and funky styling touches. The venue is The Faversham, an award winning Leeds wedding venue with three very different spaces for weddings.
Images are by lovely Sarah Maria Photography, who is based in Lancashire. Do go visit Sarah’s website, read her blog and her brilliant and heartfelt advice about hiring a wedding photographer (based on personal experience and absolutely spot on!) – and get in touch to see if she’s free on your wedding day!
The Faversham offers so much more than your usual city centre location. Theres a large lawn area for giant games and post-ceremony drinks, a conservatory where you can say your vows before heading to the Victorian room to chill and catch up with friends and family. The whole place is just perfect for a laid back, non-traditional, relaxed wedding day – and today’s shoot shows some genius ways for styling your day to suit!
The lettered backdrop and table runner are gorgeous – they’re by Gray Starling Designs who also provided cute place names and tags for the sweet jars. The venue was styled by Shindig! Event Styling and Styling Farm with a stunning bouquet by Lisa’s Florist. Louise looks amazing in dresses by Lace & Co Bridal – I love the sleeves and detailing on the second dress – and her hair and make up were done by the talented Peaches & Cream Hair & Beauty, and Nicole Rose Horne. Paul rocks a suit from Grooms Rooms.
There are more ideas to brighten up your wedding pics – the balloons from Swoon Balloons are ace (always, always choose matt, round, oversized balloons!) and light up letters from Marvellous Glow work perfectly in this space. The dessert table from Whimsical Cakes is fun and retro, with old school biscuits and iced gems lining the wedding cake, cute cupcakes and milkshakes with straws… it looks delish! Get a cake topper like this one from Lemon Tree House – isn’t it fab?!
The photo booth (check out that awesome camera setup!) is from Viva La Booth.
