Shoot | Lake Como Elopement

I am so excited to share this AMAZING shoot with you today. I was so blown away to be asked to be a part of it, especially as it took place in one of my favourite places I have visited, the stunning Lake Como in Italy - I only wish I had insisted that the stationery was hand delivered so I could have been there myself. It was such a superstar team, stunning location and the couple are just out of this world beautiful! And of course, if you follow me on Instagram you'll know that the shoot was featured on my absolute favourite blog last week, Wedding Sparrow. So lots of excitement about all of that. You can check out the original feature here

The inspiration for the shoot was timeless Italian romance and the strong Italian colours of the venue, so we went with peachy watercolour tones. The background of the suite was done by hand and then scanned in and printed digitally with white calligraphy and a romantic hand illustration. The place settings we done by hand with white ink on a watercolour background. I absolutely adore how it all came together...and that watercolour background might be making its way on to some more work that I am planning....keep your eyes peeled!

As we all know I am a major Pinterest addict and it is where my love for calligraphy first started, I used to, and still do, gush over stunning styled photos of invitation suites and calligraphy and wish that one day I could have images that perfect. So when I receive images like the ones from this shoot it really blows my mind that it's my work looking that perfect...it really is a dream come true for me. I hope you like them too.
