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.

Shoot | Wrest Park

I am appalled and embarrassed to see that I have not been here in over a month, life has been crazy hectic with lots of jobs and projects on the go that my little blog has been neglected...I shall try better I promise! Anyway for today I have a super exciting shoot to share with you that has been featured on Ruffled Blog today!!! It was co-ordinated and shot by the wonderfully talented Phillipa Sian Photography and I absolutely LOVE the outcome. I did an envelope to go with some gorgeous letterpress stationery done by The Whistle Press (who is totally my letterpress crush!) a love letter, vintage mirror lettering and some tags to go with an amazing sweet table done by Duchess and Butler. I shall let the pictures do the rest of the talking...make sure you swoon over the florals by Violets and Velvet they are out of this world BEAUTIFUL.

Monthly Recap | June

We are now almost a week into July (HOW?!) so it is time to look back over the last month and have a look back at June. 

I have been so lucky to have had three shoots out this month! I love the outcome of all of them and they have been featured on some great blogs. I have also got some stunning photos for my website from them and worked with the most talented of suppliers. I am so looking forward to having even more out in the next couple of months to share with you all. I have blogged about each of the shoots which you can read and see here.

June was also the month that I worked on two gorgeous weddings and did wonderful mirrors for them! These were the first mirrors that I have worked on although they took a bit of working out they went really well and I loved the outcome of them. I am still waiting on the professional photos from them but for now here are my snaps (taken in my hallway aka the only place in the house where I didn't get a reflection of baby toys!) For one of these weddings I also got to do the most gorgeous leaf place settings...which I absolutely loved. 

Finally to sum this up I worked on my first PR event this month with the lovely Alice Gabb. We did a launch party for Totem Adornments with Push PR writing little love notes for guests. It was so lovely to hear what wonderful things people had to say about their loved ones and in the gorgeous setting of The Swan Pub at The Globe. 

Such a great month! To see snaps of what I get up to day to day follow me over on my social media channels through the icons below!  

Shoot | Lady On The Lake

I am super excited to share another shoot with you all today. It was published on Monday on The English Wedding Blog and shot by the ever so talented Jessica Davies. This was a really last minute shoot that Jessica pulled together in a week (!!) The brief was feminity and strength with tones of burgundy, soft pinks, and gold which I was all over and I absolutely loved putting together this simple suite on handmade paper and then place cards using a pale gold hand mixed ink on burgundy colorplan stock. I am totally in love with the outcome, the location is just dreamy. You can see the whole shoot here and below there are some of my favourite images and list of all all the amazing vendors involved.
