As micro weddings settle into all of our future plans, we’re loving the creative suppliers out there working hard to show how beautiful they can be. Lovely Tania from Hire Societies has been inspiring and reassuring couples on her instagram over recent months with some fabulous ideas for micro weddings. I’m thrilled to be sharing this inspiration from Tania and a lovely bunch of creatives today!
With love,

Modern intimate wedding styling inspiration from Slindon House, image credit Kelsie Scully (15)

I wanted the table to be full of flowers and decor which is an upcoming trend for 2021 ‘Grand-Millennium’. I wanted to empathize with texture and pattern but still keeping it modern and chic.

Micro weddings and social distancing are having a huge impact on wedding planning and styling, and I wanted to create elements that are possible to do when planning your own wedding. For example each family has their own table – i.e the Russells on one table, the Crooks on another and only having your dearest there, if there is only 2 in the family then they would be on their own table. Each table would have their own platters and individual wedding cakes would be served on a plate ready to be eaten.

With micro weddings becoming the trend for the future, I wanted to create an outdoor styled shoot. I wanted to create a vision for couples who think big and to show that having a small micro wedding with social distancing doesn’t mean that you all need to be separate and empty.

I absolutely love this bridesmaid’s denim jacket! How cute though?!! It’s all part of the personalised embroidery service from luxury boutique Bridal Indulgence in Hampshire. Those swirls – it’s actual calligraphy on a denim jacket, for your wedding and beyond. GENIUS!

Brides have been customising little pieces of wedding attire for decades… a little embroidery on a keepsake hanky might have been a little ‘out there’ in the 1920s but now you can personalise pretty much anything you’ll wear on your wedding day! I love the idea of having your names in embroidery tucked away somewhere at the side of your wedding veil, or in the lining of a bridal jacket … and those denims just totally have my heart!

The nervous excitement is just bursting from your heart: the person you love popped the question; you said YES!!! and you’re planning the celebration of a LIFETIME! There’s so much to think about – and What To Wear is a biggie. You only get to do this once: the time in your life where you can spend ten times as much on a dress as you EVER would in a normal year. The excitement of wearing a dress SO special that everyone will turn and look as you walk into a room. The pressure to get it right… and the joy of owning something so wonderful, special and beautiful as your very own wedding dress.

So yeah, wedding dress shopping is a huge deal. And you’re basically juggling excitement in one hand with the pressure to get it right in the other hand. Aaargh, right?! Wedding dress shopping should be an amazing adventure. Plan it just right, and I promise it will be! But if you go into it without a little forethought, the pressure can take over and before you know it you’ve tried on 50 dresses in 10 boutiques… and you’re all shopped out, stressed and tearful. I get it. Overshopping the dress is REAL – and you CAN avoid it happening to you.
