Good morning, beautiful! Today we’re sharing a key look for 2019 weddings – one that can be recreated easily once you ‘get’ the styling concepts – and one I know will make 2019 a year of weddings to remember. It’s all about understated elegance with careful attention to a few quality details. For me this is a look of almost effortless wedding style – combining simple, minimal details with the smallest touches of real luxury and softness. The florals are absolutely key: delicate and feminine blooms in a soft palette of ivory, nude, blush and soft peach with pops of glorious coral. Texture comes from hare’s tail grasses and striking white anthuriums, while white lilac and butterfly ranunculus bring softness to the look. The colours are what I love most about today’s floral design: those carefully arranged coral blooms really make the arrangements look contemporary and luxurious, don’t you think?
I was chatting with a friend yesterday and the words “like a princess” came into our conversation – and we chuckled. Neither of us are princessy girls… and yet, doesn’t everyone want to be the centre of someone’s universe sometimes?
That feeling of “like a princess” applies to relationships as much as it does to weddings. I’ve heard so many stories from brides-to-be finding their dress: ‘The One” – and having that princess feeling! Until now I’ve always felt a little apart from that; I’m no Cinderella, I’ve never worn a cocktail dress or ballgown – it just isn’t me. And when it comes to wedding dresses, I’d go as alternative as I could get away with!
Not everyone dreams of being a princess. I never have; and if I’m honest the classic bridal style isn’t for me. I love dresses which are different, creative, and which make a real impression. A dress has to have ‘wow’ as well as being beautiful. And in an ideal world, a dress has to have a story behind it. Enter the awesome Legend Bridal Designs along with an impressive cast of north west wedding suppliers for today’s alternative styled shoot…
This morning we shared the first of three fabulous Viking inspired bridal looks, and you’ll have glimpsed some of the most amazing table styling in the banqueting hall at Lowther Castle. This afternoon I’m sharing my very favourite parts from this shoot: the tablescape – and it’s so much more than just a table! Let’s take a closer look at the tablescapes, floral design, wedding cake, stationery suite and bridal styling from this morning’s Lowther Castle shoot.
You’re about to have a brilliantly inspiring Monday morning. (You’re welcome!) I’ve fallen head over heels for today’s style inspiration: we’re about to journey into a world of Viking style, via a shoot which embraces amazing lighting, decor and beauty. There’s a fabulously creative tablescape the like of which I’ve never seen before: it’s simply out of this world.
The first bridal look is my favourite: those long braids and striking accessories are more than gorgeous – and the dress and accessories work beautifully. It’s an alternative look for a bride with real character: a chance to embrace your creativity and dress up – knowing your bridal look will be unique, and oh so you.
