Happy St Patrick’s day everyone! I’m just south of Belfast this morning and looking forward to an amazing day of celebrations with friends – in the meantime though, I have something rather special to share with you today. Softly textured florals and shining, modern metallics… there’s something about today’s editorial from Amanda Karen Photography which works so perfectly I could sing! The way Laura Jayne (Your Wedding Your Way) combines colours and materials is wonderful – don’t you think? This is a theme which would work in a blank canvas marquee, an industrial space or any blank canvas venue – it’s guaranteed to make your wedding unique and different! I’m thrilled to be sharing this gorgeous inspiration with you today – grab a cuppa because there are so many lovely details for you to Pin away to your heart’s content and inspire your own wedding! You might be here a while 🙂
You’re not alone if you secretly wish English brides and grooms could marry anywhere, like they can in the US: at home, on the beach, or in a beautiful woodland setting like this. That time will come… in the meantime, there’s so much to be said for bringing nature indoors – choose woodland foliage and twisting branches in your bouquet; add butterflies to your tables and stationery; and choose a venue with a patch of woodland nearby so you can escape for beautiful portraits with your love!
Today’s styled shoot was sent in by our lovely friend and inspirational wedding stationery designer Emma Jo. Images are by Nina Pang, and you’ll find a full supplier list of all the super talented creatives involved below.
Emma’s wonderfully elegant stationery nods towards the ‘Fairytale’ theme while being elegant enough to suit lots of couples and their weddings. We love the simple, minimal design with folding laser cut butterflies! Emma’s brush lettering skills come into play with the apple place settings, and she created complementary calligraphy-style pieces for the cake topper, cocktail stirrers and butterfly place settings.
