REAL WEDDING // Jenna & Luke - Dreamy Santorini Watercolour Wedding

blue dome 2.jpg

Huge congratulations to Jenna and Luke who tied the knot in Santorini last summer at the STUNNING Santo Winery. If you’re anything like us, these beautiful blue sky photographs are what you need on this frosty February morning, so a grab a cuppa and read all about their seaside nuptials.

We loved working with Jenna & Luke to create their suite of bespoke wedding day stationery including Order of Service fans, table plan, menu choice cards and place settings all finished with fresh green watercolour background, modern calligraphy and gold foiled detail.

Their stunning location didn’t need much decoration but we love how the crisp white interior of Santo Winery mixed with the blue sky and sea echoed the traditional blue and white architecture of the region. Our stationery and the floral arrangements by Betty Flowers added the finishing pops of green to their ceremony space.

Thank you so much again for your amazing design, it added so much to our day. Everyone complimented on the order of service and the fan was certainly needed! Great service from start to finish... Thank you.

Jenna wore a Suzanne Neville gown with a drop dead gorgeous sleek silhouette, all Suzanne Neville dresses British made and still hand crafted in London.

To make it easier for Jenna and Luke to take over to Santorini we created these individual cards for each table of the wedding breakfast, once at the venue they were assembled onto this hand painted backboard and finished with lush florals.

COLOUR

A celebration of COLOUR.

Let's talk about big white weddings... While they are absolutely stunning, they just aren't for everyone. There are so many engaged couples out there who struggle to plan their wedding because they just don't see themselves in the pages of the big magazines. It's easy to get overwhelmed with nerves about how to style their big day because some traditions just don't suit them; your wedding can and should be a reflection of everything you love (how often do you get to throw the party of a lifetime and celebrate your love for each other?) Make it all about you!

These  Frock The HIghstreet  jumpsuits are a stunning choice for an alternative wedding outfit.

For this mini styled shoot by Margo R Photography she was influenced by a couple of different things; Solange's iconic wedding bicycle and afro hairstyle and bold, vibrant colours and geometric shapes. 

Check out our Pinterest board: COLOUR for more inspiration for modern couples... Relaxed yet glamorous, contemporary yet elegant, vibrant and above all else FUN. 

Margo featured our  Eastern Glamour wedding stationery  and flowers by  Clare Kilgour  for extra kicks of colour.

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.

VikingWeddingStyledShoot-29.jpg

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.)

For the second month in a row we have been featured in Perfect Wedding Magazine! This time our Flora and Fauna stationery from the Mr & Mrs Unique styled shoot is on the pages of the January issue. What a great start to 2016!

We collaborated with awesome Erica from alternative wedding blog Mr & Mrs Unique on this Flora and Fauna styled shoot last summer. Every time we look back at the shoot we remember the hard work, beautiful styling and creative direction from MMU; see more here!

Tropical Destination Celebration

It has been pretty hectic here in the studio and we have some super exciting work in the pipeline for you! This is a preview of just one of the projects we will be revealing very soon so make sure you keep an eye here on our blog!

Your wedding invitations are the perfect way to give your guests a snapshot into what you have planned for your wedding day. For this tropical collection of stationery we wanted to create elegant yet modern prints and we think they would be great for a wedding celebration abroad.

See our  Pinterest board  for links to these awesome products!

Every time we get to work on new designs we can't help but imagine what the actual wedding day could look like too! For these we imagine plenty of succulents, gold styling and a good old BBQ on the beach. Check out our Pinterest board for more inspiration!


Signed, sealed, delivered...

Just packaged up our latest commission for another awesome couple. Love the nervous excitement of sending off our work, this time we have designed place settings, invitations and menus. The couple loved the invitation design so much they have even had it printed up as poster size artwork for their home together.
