Hello again and welcome into my little world! I’ve been playing with my paints and with the help of some wonderful people I’ve put together a lovely little tutorial for any brides and grooms who fancy getting painty this weekend!

paper flowers tutorial

Ingredients for your paper flowers: crepe paper, cotton wool balls, big paintbrush, tube(s) of watercolour or gouache paint, double sided tape, scissors, bamboo skewers, bowl, and a microwave… and about 6 hours per 50 flowers!

The finished paper flowers were taken to a creative shoot which I hope will inspire couples to design and make some pretty bits and pieces for your own weddings. All of the paper pieces I made can be recreated at home so do watch out for the shoot – coming to a wedding blog near you soon! The three images from the shoot are by Jamie at Vickerstaff Photography and a full list of the fab suppliers involved is at the end of this feature.

Morning everyone! How is your day going? I’ve been making inspiration boards for you today – some gorgeous ideas in soft green shades. Flowers take centre stage at weddings… but sometimes foliage can be as beautiful a theme as a floral one… see what you think!

Winter wedding styling can be very traditional, and it’s tricky sometimes to find ideas online for winter wedding decor with a bit of a difference. Red roses anyone? Maybe it’s just me… but I get a bit bored of red roses in winter. If you fancy something a little different to brighten up and warm your wedding styling when there’s snow outside, today’s gloriously rich shoot will be right up your street.
