My life by the sea inspires me every single day. Earlier this year I was asked by lovely Olivia Bossert and Joanne Fleming if I’d like to write some calligraphy for a coastal photoshoot, and of course I said yes. The Cornish coastline where the shoot took place is one of my favourite parts of the country, and memories of walking there last summer inspired the pieces I wrote for Jo and Olivia.
I love that wedding styling has a wider scope than the bits and pieces you ‘should’ have for your day. In fact, I’m all for having nothing that’s expected and everything that’s different. So including antiqued love letters alongside gorgeous mixed florals is right up my street. Writing as art takes hand calligraphy a step away from run of the mill invitation styling, and I loved having the wild and windswept coastline as my inspiration for the stationery.
Neither is a ‘typical’ bridal gown really my thing. The exquisite lace and dreamy colours of Jo Fleming’s gowns take my breath away. Everything about this shoot – not least the stunning images – captures my heart. Here are just a handful of sneak peeks for you to see. The full shoot will be featured on one of the world’s best wedding blogs in a few weeks’ time.
Massive admiration for an amazing team of wedding creatives:
