Better together, we certainly are, aren’t we? And let’s face it, we haven’t been able to be together so much in the past 14 months, have we? But what I have seen is a huge amount of creativity, love and togetherness in ways I never thought possible. Such as with this incredible dark wedding ideas editorial, curated and shot by the talented Esther Louise Triffitt Photography.
Behind the shoot is a fierce longing for inspiring couples in the face of adversity with their wedding planning during the pandemic. A sense of pushing through even with the ever-changing restrictions. A message that small, micro weddings can be just as, if not, more special than a traditional large wedding do. The whole team featured today really came together to inspire with their creative talents. The moody tones, the cool vibes, in fact, every single detail was just stunning. I am sure you will agree when you check out the whole feature below. Wow.
Micro weddings = maxi details
Bang on trend micro weddings give couples the opportunity to go completely extra on the detailing as they re-focus their wedding plans to create the most insanely wonderful day with their inner circle. This shoot was designed to celebrate the beauty of micro weddings and absolutely sets my heart on fire.
Channelling all things dark and moody and working with some of my favourite suppliers, we created a micro wedding from the deepest parts of our dark hearts. Featuring two amazing city centre sister venues that are the most perfect setting for micro weddings, heaving with details and making the intimate nature of small weddings feel completely at home.
Our incredible wedding industry has been hit with so many blows over the last few months, my diary has been regularly attacked with Tipp-Ex as I constantly work alongside my wonderful couples to tweak, bend, flex and make their dreams happen – and I know my fellow supplier friends are the same. This shoot was an opportunity to let all our creativity out – to indulge in gorgeous detailing, add all the extra urban opulence, to layer gorgeous food and people and feelings all over the place… We got our deepest darkest creative on and we loved it.
This shoot is to celebrate micro, to support and inspire the epic couples out there abiding by the rules no matter how hard, and to prove that size doesn’t matter.
