I have such a treat for you today, lovely! We’re filling the blog with beautiful yellow blooms and fabulous city wedding styling ideas from lovely By Chenai and Amanda Karen Photography. The dresses by Monique Lhuillier and Viktor & Rolf (from Browns Bride) are breathtaking – and the fabric backdrops just divine. I hope you love this as much as I do: I will leave you with lovely Chenai who explains her ideas so beautifully.
I teamed up with Prince Phillip House (3 Carlton House) in London’s St James area to style a mini shoot that would tell the story of a city summer wedding in London.
Working with Amanda Karen Photography and Browns Bride of London (who gave us a Fall 2019 Monique Lhuillier structured ‘Everest’ gown and Viktor & Rolf Fall 2019 gown) we wanted to tell 2 stories against the quite traditional background of the building.
I used Boomting bunting to drape some of the spaces, to show couples what could be achieved in a venue like this. The star of the show really is the all English flowers in the design by Bloomologie, bringing a little country meadow form the outside in. I really love how strong the yellow blooms are.
In terms of table styling, classic golds simply styled with lovely but very simple tablescapes. I wanted a couple to be able to imagine this on their tablescape, not too intimidating or over the top.
