Happy Thursday everyone. We have some lush intimate wedding inspiration for you today. Not only does it include a mouth dropping, metallic gold mini wedding dress (OMG it’s so pretty!), it also showcases stylish monochrome wedding stationery, beautiful pastel wedding flowers, chic wedding accessories, and plenty of disco glitterballs! It’s right up my street!
Over to Tichea from Carmela Weddings to tell us more about the shoot, the team and the inspiration behind it…
Tichea from Carmela Weddings…
Where did you get your inspiration from?
I find inspiration from everywhere that is the key.
The Goldsmith Centre is such a cool place. When you hear about the history and how creative this place is you immediately fall in love. There is so much light and space. You kind of get excited about the possibilities. Which as wedding planners we love. Dry hires are a chance to really go to town and make your event really yours.
We have to mention that Gold Dress!
Me and Marie the dress designer fell in love with a gold dress I shared on my Instagram. I asked if she could do a gold dress for the shoot and that was it! Marie was away! Marie created this amazing bespoke piece. When I first saw it. I was completely blown away. This dress is stunning. It has definitely got the WOW factor.
My inspiration also definitely came from the location it’s in Farringdon in London. Pure city vibes.
And of course my love of partying. We are currently in a pandemic and if your anything like me and my couples you love music and dancing and have missed it so much.
So what better way than to bust some moves on that gold dance floor and cheers at the gold bar.
How did you find the suppliers who made this concept come to life?
I had a few people that I love working with so I reach out to them first. Then connected with new suppliers on Facebook, Instagram and the new kid on the block Clubhouse.
I love discovering new people and their talents.
What details are your favourite, and why?
Has the be the gold dress. Gold is definitely my jam. I love the boldness of the colour. I love the big puffy sleeve and I love the girly softness of the bow.
It just screams fierceness.
The person I see wearing this kind of dress, knows what they want and they don’t compromise. If it’s not there, they create it. And that what I do as a Wedding & Events planner. I help the couple to create the day they envision we don’t compromise. If it’s not there we created it!
Also got to love a Glitterball. That just screams good times.
Do you have any styling tips for readers looking to emulate this shoot?
This is your wedding. It’s all about you and your partner.
You should never compromise on the look and feel of your day.
So get clear of what you love and what to emulate.
So go bespoke! Ask suppliers to create something just for you. Granted it might cost you more. But it will be just how you imagined it. And the supplier would love to be even more creative. You might just inspire them!
What is it that makes your shoot unique?
The vision and the unique combination of suppliers are what makes the shoot so unique. The Goldsmith Centre is such a blank canvas that you can create whatever you like in the space. So with the amazing suppliers, we did. I ask the questions and the suppliers delivered.
And this shoot is a reminder that you can too.
What’s the most important tip you have for couples planning their wedding?
Always look around you for inspiration. Not just online Pinterest and Instagram.
This look is a budget-friendly intimate wedding.
All of the pieces you can pick up from high street stores.
It’s all about the vision and styling.
