English Garden Shoot || Featured on Style Me Pretty

I am still recovering from my extreme excited about our English Garden photo shoot featured on Style Me Pretty yesterday! Not only was it such an honor to be a cover feature, but an honor to work with such amazing vendors to pull this off. And I still can’t get over the amazing images from Jessica Claire! I am beyond excited to share more of this shoot with you! It is one of my absolute favorites (if I may say so myself). The plate wall, the tea bag chandelier, the cake, the flowers, the furniture! Without further ado, here is more English Garden goodness for you…

With the royal wedding on the horizon, it seemed only appropriate to give our spin on an “English Garden Wedding.”  Inspired by big hats, tea, bold colors and English interior design, this shoot was dripping in royalty. We wanted to infuse the best of English design, in its vintage and timeless nature, but give it a refined and modern touch.  We also wanted to create custom pieces inspired by the country that would stand as a unique statement in the shoot.

The plate wall was drawn about from English interior design.  I wanted to design a unique piece that would be the backdrop to the couple’s nuptials, so I hand made this wall out of textured fabric and 26 different plates.

Without a doubt, we think of tea when we think of England, right?!  Pinky up!  Out of this came the custom chandelier that hung over the head table. I hand made this piece out of 700 tea bags to create a chandelier fitting for this English photo shoot.

Found Vintage Rentals created the scenes in which our English wedding would take place with their gorgeous vintage pieces. Bringing in multiple colors, shapes, textures, and styles the featured pieces reflect that of English furniture, with a refined touch.

The floral arrangements were a true piece of art, created by Art with Nature. Working with an array of flowers, colors, and urns, these arrangements were perfectly suited for an English Garden wedding. The darling stationery pieces, created by Paper Cut Industries, carried the royal garden theme throughout.

And who wouldn’t want to dive into the impeccable cake?!  With a very unique design, this cake offered a stylish and tasty addition to our shoot, created by A Wish and a Whisk.

The bride was outfitted in a knee-length, delicately laced, Anthropologie dress, while the bridesmaids wore fabulous dresses by Bella Bridesmaid.  Each of these gorgeous bridesmaids were adorned with incredible hats by Twigs and Honey which truly topped off their English look.  And the models were extra stunning by the talented hands of Design Visage with hair and make-up.

More loveliness for you…
