Spring is nearly here. Queue the sunglasses, immaculate pedicures and the wedding bells! To celebrate the best of the 2017 Wedding season we bring Boho to the City and give you our favourite inspiration for an alternative Wedding look.
Taking inspiration from the creative work of stationary artist and photographer Anna Wallis from Rose, Paper Scissors, whom Private Dining London worked with previously on the Christys photoshoot, we have created a look using several suppliers and styling tips that you can create for yourself or your Wedding Planner can!
Blues, yellows and the “boho” look are ordinarily associated with the green fields, rustic furniture and festoon lighting of a countryside Wedding. However, by choosing our backdrop, City of London favourite the South Place Hotel near Moorgate, we have shown how it is possible to bring a colourful look to City Wedding couples and their guests. South Place Hotel's garden room lends itself well to small parties and intimate weddings looking for the botanical inspiration that is very on trend this year. The sense of botany is injected through their use of green lighting, colourful upholstery and large plants.
Anna’s stationary can excite your guests from the minute they “Save the Date” and open that envelope. The Rose, Paper, Scissor portfolio is brimming with bespoke invitations that are created for each of the couples that Anna works with and she has a real talent for crafting stationary to reflect the true personalities and theme inspirations of each couple. My favourite piece is a clever invite that can be turned inside out to become the RSVP envelope; very nifty, considerate of the environment and a playful twist on traditional stationary. To add to this, for all couples looking for a London Wedding Photographer Anna also offers photography services so can provide a couple with so much more than just the stationary.
We have used a truly unique dress which is by Lucy Can’t Dance and features a Blue dip dye effect with the most beautiful laced back detail. Still elegant and feminine, this alternative dress design offers something for the Bride that wants to do things away from tradition. The Bride is perfected with the floral crown which is a characterful alternative to a tiara and/or veil.
Floral designs are styled using yellows and whites from New Covent Garden Flower market and feature yellows, whites and foliage to fit in with the botanical inspiration. The Wedding cake is bought to us by Pink Kitchen with a blue marbled base which is a style of decoration that is extremely popular this year and the bally balls that feature in the floral arrangements take centre stage. Dusted with a glint of gold, the cake is ready to compliment the special day.
What a pleasure it was to work on this shoot! We offer full events and wedding planning service within London and surrounding areas. For enquiries about any of the suppliers we have used, please see their details below.
