Willow Pattern Wedding
Today I'm sharing with you this amazingly curated styled shoot that I was delighted to have been invited to be part of.
Thanks to Katie from The Vintage House That Could (Stylist and Floral Designer) and Becky Tranter (Photography) I've got the opportunity to show two of my latest designs inspired by pleats, once again. For this photo shoot, I created 2 outfits full of texture that echoed the pleats and folds on the paper fan backdrop and the cake.
The first outfit was formed by our Petals top and a new hand dyed pleated georgette skirt, perfectly styled by the team with shoes and headpiece inspired by pleats.
This work was featured today on Save The Date Magazine and you can read the following on their blog:
'From the blooms to the cake, the stationery to tiny details, it all feels so beautifully unique and was all pulled together by a super talented team headed up by Little Vintage House That Could. Katie, the lady behind the shoot concept, tells us about how her vision came to reality...
"I created a shoot to highlight how a classical blue and white scheme can really be used to highlight details & textures. I also wanted to show that mix matched pieces can work so well together if you focus on a colour theme.
I was inspired by the classic blue and white Willow Pattern China design to capture something with a nod to oriental styles, so lots of pleats and folds and texture. The dress designer created two beautiful Outfits with so much texture to echo the paper fans and the cake included all of these elements. Hair and make up was kept simple to highlight the dresses and I used lots of blue flowers that would really pop in the white marquee and the gardens that were not in full bloom.
The walled gardens at Beeston was a perfect setting for the blue and white and the gardens framed the dresses, cake and flowers so well"'
The second look was our already famous pleated georgette gown with Pagodas sleeves and Flock tulle details.
We think the results speak for themselves so have a nosey below for all the sapphire, teal, aquamarine, inky inspiration you could wish for....
