A Bohemian elopement with a touch of Viking spirit...

VikingWeddingStyledShoot-18.jpg

This elopement styled shoot was inspired by Viking seafarers and a love of all things bohemian; what is it Ewan McGregor says in Moulin Rouge... the bohemian ideals are freedom, beauty, truth, and love? Well if your wedding celebrates those biggies then you're off to a good start.

This shoot coordinated by photographer Mila Kos was photographed on the stunning Wembury Devonshire coastline and is the perfect inspiration for an outdoors boho celebration with a touch of raw Viking spirit.

The romantic wedding dress designed by SAJA is available from Rock the Frock stockist The Wedding Hub. Such an elegant shape but with softly dropped shoulders for added drama.

Our Flora & Fauna wedding invitation and RSVP card was edited to suit the deep reds, pinks and purples of the shoot. (If you love one of our designs but you're not sure the colour scheme would suit your day just get in touch to see if we can edit the design to coordinate with the rest of your celebration.)

When Emma from Best Day Ever was on the look out for creative suppliers to help out with an alternative styled shoot we jumped at the chance to get involved. Influenced by her love of rich Eastern fabrics and colour this look has all the glamour of a traditional Indian wedding but with a laid back modern twist. 

Florals by  Bloom & Florish . Photo by   Freckle Photography

We looked to everything from indian mandalas, jewelled sarees and moroccan henna to design this fresh suite of stationery. And for that extra special touch we collaborated with the talented folk over at The Foil Invite Co. who added the delicate gold foiling.

We were lucky enough to attend the shoot and have a little wander around the gorgeous venue, Worden House - It's safe to say Abi is in love with the views of rolling hills, pool side dining area and extra party shed decked out with vintage industrial interior.

Cocktail connoisseur's  Tigermilk  were on hand to provide the ultimate retro cocktails including the Classic Martini. If you are ever in Plymouth head down to their underground speakeasy bar, nestled below the Duke of Cornwall Hotel it's a great night spot, you might even see some of  Abi's illustrations  up on their walls :) (but ssh! don't tell them we told you it was there!)

Real wedding: Mike and Ellen

We are so excited to share this beautiful wedding day photographed by the talented Alan Law. Last year we were lucky enough to be commissioned by awesome couple Mike and Ellen to create their bespoke wedding stationery; including invitations, artwork for their wedding website, their table plan, place settings and more. Have a look at just how beautiful their big day turned out to be!

The couple asked us to design a washing line table plan featuring our hand drawn lettering which they assembled with bakers twine and colourful pegs. The great thing about this table plan is that if you have any last minute changes there's no need to reprint the entire thing, we can simply edit the table you need to amend and pop it in the post to you.
