Our journey starts here
A good wedding for us is one in which the bride and groom simply go “wow”.
The secret behind a well-styled wedding is knowing how to work with the best features of the wedding location while allowing your own personality and style of celebration to shine. Understanding colour palettes, textures and space and then knowing how to marry that with your visions and aspirations is what makes the difference between a well-dressed wedding and a memorable one.
Marie, our Lead Stylist, is particularly drawn to vintage and rustic wedding styles and loves the textures that wood, lace and china lend to the ambience of a space. She also strives to employ accessories which have a touch of the practical to them; for example, centrepieces which look equally as beautiful during day and night times. One of our most memorable vintage-style weddings incorporated the bride’s family china as a decorative centre-piece, styled with beads and flowers during the day and soft candle-light at night. We loved that there were personal pieces familiar to many of the family there, which were beautiful, meaningful and immediately reflected the personality of the couple.
“My favourite commission is one where a couple choose a venue which is a blank canvas – a rustic space, a steading, a village hall, a marquee, so often chosen by our couple because they want to put their own stamp on it and have their own personalities shine throughout the day. It is “your day, your way” and that is what we love most.”
We hope that the work we do goes beyond your expectations, helps you to form beautiful visual memories of the day and impresses your guests when they enter the space. It would be an honour for us to be part of your journey.
