Glorious gowns (and so many!) from award winning eco luxe bridal designer Sanyukta Shrestha take centre stage, with fabulous suppliers collaborating to create a woodland chic wedding editorial I’m SO excited to share with you! All of the beautiful images are by KMGS Photography, and the shoot was submitted by Sanyukta Shrestha – as huge admirers of Sanyukta’s designs and of her sustainable ethics, we simply had to share this beautiful editorial!

Sustainable weddings are the future, and we LOVE how sustainability is challenging the wedding industry. This editorial is wonderfully creative, with the most romantic styling ideas and a magical atmosphere staying true to the eco friendly vibe. All the dresses are sustainable and vegan friendly, the floral installation by Lime Wood Flowers is eco friendly, make up artistTina Brocklebank used cruelty-free beauty products and the wedding cake is by The Iced Vegan. Props from The Big Chair Company & The Prop Shop are true vintage, with sustainably upcycled table decor.

As a nature lover, I am charmed by the tranquility that surrounds my home. All seasons passed by over the years but I couldn’t stop falling in love with the romanticism of Autumn. I waited until the end of October for leaves to be turning with shades of golden yellow and orange and to naturally fall, to capture the whole beauty of my collection, in which ‘Autumn’ itself is an inspiration. –  Sanyukta Shrestha

 

The passion behind Sanyukta Shrestha’s bridal collections is clear as a drop of autumn dew: the dresses breathtaking and the ethics a shining star to lead us into a new decade. Sustainability has to be the key promise for EVERY wedding brand going forwards – and Sanyukta Shrestha shows us how stunningly beautiful this ethical future will be.

More than anything else I value true craftsmanship and style in the wedding industry. Mass-produced, bland styling touches turn me cold… but show me breathtaking style from independent designers and I fall head over heels in love. Today’s wedding inspo comes from the very best: creatives, artisans and designers whose work I truly adore.

A few simple – but beautifully crafted – details can go a long way on your wedding day. Choose statement pieces and use them sparingly: a stunning dress; a unique and different bouquet and hair accessory – these are the details which will make you feel incredible and ensure your day is truly special. The blue dress is Eden by Claire Pettibone – a stunning favourite from her beautiful Couture Collection, supplied by Yorkshire’s White Room Bridal Boutique. Paper magnolias and the stunning floral hair accessories are by designer and illustrator Amy Swann.

You know when nature creeps into the cracks of a wall on an old industrial site…? I love that. Life prevails. Beauty wins, and today we show a transformation which will turn your wedding venue world on its head. You really can be married anywhere. I almost wonder if an abandoned warehouse space could become a more beautiful location than a stately home? After all, we’ve kind of done village halls now… Claire

The magic is in the contrast. An urban, industrial backdrop filled with handcrafted and botanical details: handwritten calligraphy, botanical illustration, a delicately crafted and stunning wedding cake. There are feather garlands to soften and add texture and hand cut paper flowers for a chic, modern DIY look. Dresses are by the one and only Claire Pettibone, styling is by Sheffield’s gorgeous Nina Marika, and the sublime images are courtesy of lovely Jess Petrie.
