Hey happy Friday all!
And what a week its been! I’m thrilled to bits that we launched our new look website this week, and received the most epic feedback from you all! Thank you SO much. I’m totally in love with the new design (even if I do say so myself!), and I particularly love how it showcases all of the amazing UK wedding suppliers that we have as part of our community.
Our URU suppliers are super talented and going back through all of their listings, reminded me how creative and wonderful they are. So if you’re looking to find that perfect supplier/s for your own wedding day… then please (after you’ve filled your boots with inspiration from today’s blog post – its a cracker!) pop over and take a look through our new look directory!
We also have a new look for our wedding blog. I wanted to make sure that you could view through all of our past posts, similar in style to Pinterest, so it’s easier to spot articles or epic inspiration that might take your fancy. Hope you like it :)
Talking of epic inspiration, I’ve been DYING to share this bridal shoot since I found one of the sneak peeks over on the gram. Lucky for me, the team were really happy for me to share… it’s the most perfect inspiration to kick start our new blog. Colourful, full of pastel florals and William Morris detailing… it’s everything I love and I hope you love it too. Let me know what you think in the comments below…
Over to Sophie from Love Takes Over Events to tell us more about the shoot and the inspiration behind it…
Sophie from Love Takes Over Events…
Inspired by Wedgewood Jasperware, William Morris and Kim K’s 2013 Met Ball dress! I wanted this shoot to be romance on a maximalists terms. Traditional with a twist, full of beautiful flowers and an eclectic table design all set inside the grounds of a venue that doesn’t get more romantic. A castle!
I would suggest couples look in to interiors and print to get inspiration for their wedding design and this way you are guaranteed to not have a wedding that was designed for someone else’s personality.
I knew I wanted to Victoria to photograph and Hyde Park Flower Club by Dotties to do the floristry as we work so well together as a team. The rest of the suppliers I found via Instagram after loots of searching and I honestly love every detail they created. All the suppliers brought the brief to life!
I wanted to show couples that they can look at venues through a different lens. A traditional castle doesn’t have to mean a traditional wedding, it’s just an epic location. All our shoots are about projecting that you do you vibe. Be yourself and let your wedding design show that. If you want a swan vase on your tables then have swan vase! I think that’s the most important tip I would give to couples planning their wedding.
This was a unique shoot because it was in a castle and everyone expects to see the same traditional inspiration whereas this was not that yet it still fit completely with the castle aesthetic. I would describe this shoot as maximalist, eclectic and romantic.
Well thank you for sharing the your inspiration with us today!
