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.

Copper is lovelier to me than any diamond could ever be. I love its warm shimmer; and my copper ink is the most exquisite thing in my calligraphy palette. So when I was asked to write some copper hand lettering for one of the most amazing styled shoots of the year, I was ridiculously excited.

Amanda Karen Photography – based in Essex and specialising in fine art wedding photography – and Nodlaigh from gorgeous new wedding blog Daydreaming Bride, came up with the idea of contrasting grey and copper tones with a city chic wedding style. They arranged a shoot at the fabulous Belair House and recruited an amazing team of the very best local suppliers.

I adore the contrast of soft metallic copper with the palest grey; the subtle softness of succulents and leafy fern fronds, the glamorous bridal look (and oh, those sequins make my heart sing!) The cake is divine: the accessories exquisite and the flowers to die for.
