These atmospheric and really rather dramatic images totally stole my heart. Perfect for a cosy autumnal Sunday me thinks.
The rich burgundy and pink tones worked beautifully in the whimsical blooms and styling. I especially love the natural bouquet filled with roses and finished with ribbon by Nadia Di Tullio Steele. The tipi looked amazing laden with golden fruit, desserts and fairy lights galore. I just also have to mention the stylish attire and uber pretty bridal hair and make up. The floral halo looked beautiful entwined in the bride’s plaited do. Gorgeous.
Thanks so much to Supplier Love members HBA Photography for sharing these incredible images. Nadia Di Tullio Steele shares all about the shoot and the inspiration behind the images with us below.
“Earlier this year I was so fortunate to be given almost ‘carte blanche’ to create a styling and floral theme for the Peaktipis spring open weekend, hosted at The Heath House in Staffordshire. Working with the dedicated and incredibly hard working team at Peaktipis I pulled together a super luxe look that suited the elegance of the country house setting, and challenged the theory that tipis are for rustic country weddings only!
I was keen to create a fully opulent look, and the starting point was ‘that’ amazing dress I selected with the help of Lorraine from Lori G Bridal in Derbyshire. The voluminous tulle and lace gown had shades of pinks and blues within the skirt and I used these as the colour direction for the rest of the styling. I pulled together the best and most beautiful blooms available to create a to die for bouquet, and finished the bridal styling with a unique floral hair piece and floral necklace. Inside the tipi the long tables were brimming with foliage runners, guilded candle sticks and compotes, finished with golden grapes and apples to give it that little bit extra…. The top table even had two gold thrones.
The individually hand painted stationary by Yellowstone Art Boutique and cakes and treats by Bake Ashbourne finished the look perfectly and worked so well with the scheme.
As with all shoots, you’re in the hands of the photographer, and I’m sure you’ll agree that Ben from HBA Photography has created an awesome set of images for us all to enjoy! We really had an amazing day of shooting as we ran the day like a real wedding, right from Bridal prep, first look, ceremony and reception?
And if you want the hairs on your arms to stand on end watch this beautiful film by Jason Lynch. And yes, the models are a real couple – can’t you tell?”
I’d sum up today’s gorgeous wedding in three words – pretty in pastels. Julia and Enrique tied the knot on the 25th of June 2016 in Ferrol, which is on the Atlantic Coast of Spain. The location on its own was magnificent and this loving couple used plenty of soft florals, cultural traditions and fun components to really make their day memorable.
I love love love learning about different rituals from around the world. Julia shares with us a local custom in Galicia, where they soak wildflowers (like rosemary, clover, fennel) and other fresh flowers outside overnight on June 23rd. Then the next morning, on St John’s Day, “you wash your face with them to heal your body and soul”. The photos of Julia with the soaked blooms are beautiful, as you will see.
Nothing beats the look of pure joy and excitement on a bride or groom’s face and you can clearly see Enrique and Julia’s elation at making their union ‘official’.
It may be Autumn but the beautiful Kisui Berlin 2017 collection has me dreaming of Spring. These ethereal, natural gowns are perfect for whimsical, country brides. You guys are going to adore the flowing fabrics, delicate detailing and mix and match options.
The exquisite knitwear is perfect to cover up in the chill yet looks so chic. The criss cross back of Connected In Love has such wow factor, I also adore Ella with it’s sweet floral appliqué. Be sure to share your faves in the comments section below.
Oh so pretty.
Kisui Berlin 2017 Collection
“The inspiration theme for this seasons collection has been Swedish midsommar. Lust for live, traditional costumes, dance, culture and fresh love, that is Midsommar. All can be found in the silhouettes, the fresh colours and the used materials. The rural romantic comes in the flowery laces and elaborate details. Kisui is using fine silks and easy silkstretch-fabrics. Special materials like laser-cut-applications give the special kisui-appeal. The kisui-silhouette is soft-flowing and straight. Fishtail dresses and ball gown dresses with an airy approach are completing the collection.”
Oh me oh my, Rianna and Tyrone, your nuptials today have me hook, line and sinker. What a way to welcome a Friday, get your Pinterest fingers at the ready folks.
WWW readers Rianna and Tyrone tied the knot on the 11th July 2016 at Green Lane Farm in Surrey. They envisioned a Midsummer Night’s Dream feel to their magical celebrations, complete with a marquee and fete influences. There was a jazz band to welcome guests, one super beautiful flower filled hair do and shot speech drinks. Everything from the lilac hue bridesmaid dresses to the wild blooms and rustic touches were just so dreamy.
I am totally coveting Rianna’s pretty polka dot tulle layered gown, she looked sensational. The gents looked handsome in blue suits and the little flower girls super adorable in white frocks. Just wait until you see the cake, you’re totally going to want a slice of that beaut.
I really do love nothing more than a couple thinking outside of the box when wedding planning. This afternoon’s bride and groom chose to hold their wedding in a big top circus style tent and boy oh boy was it a marvellous choice.
Helen and Simon were hitched on the 16th July 2016 in a humanist ceremony on Helen’s parent’s farm in Shropshire. Party was the theme and it really was the perfect idea for these two who were engaged at Glastonbury. There was even a live band, which consisted of Simon and his old bandmates, plus you’ll want to see the shot of their ‘first dance’, just genius. Mismatched chairs were sourced and they worked beautifully with the hand crafted wooden tables, festoon lights were draped in the big top and wild flowers were used throughout.
I love the sweet attire, scenic location and festival vibes. Woop.
