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.


In 2016 flowers won the internet. But it was the lush greenery of botanical styled shoots which really stole my heart. Today the greens are just divine… this is wedding style in fabulous colours to whisk you away to another world – and of course, to inspire your wedding! It’s lush and lovely and wonderfully on trend for 2017.

The Boutique – London’s newest wedding experience – was the location for our shoot.  Founders Tori Harris and Vicky Mallinson were inspired by this fusion of old and new creating a stunning space that is light and airy, nods to a ‘vintage’ style within the furniture but ultimately looking beautifully modern.

Their inspiration for the styling of The Boutique coming from the fruit du jour – the pineapple.  Traditionally a symbol of luxe and hospitality pineapple prints subtly adorn the walls of The Boutique. Taking this tropical touch a step further with flamingo prints featuring on the walls in the bathroom and water glasses.  The whole space has a air of luxury while remaining quirky and fun!
