Last week I featured the model and hair images, from my Rapunzel fairytale shoot, in part 1 and today I am going to go into more detail on the styling.
I wanted to avoid the ‘vintage’ trend, that just seems to be everywhere, so I took my inspiration from the old fairytale books and went with a theme of plaits.
There were plaits everywhere; on the chairs, wrapped around old books and also creating a hanging backdrop for wedding table – this would work really well for an outside wedding and would form a fabulous backdrop for your ceremony.
The naked cake is a new trend that I am loving right now – you can stack them high and decorate with flowers, fruit – anything goes!
I didn’t want to stick to any particular colour scheme and working with Green & Gorgeous meant we had a real country garden theme.
I handmade the favours, place names and all of the plaits so any bride who is DIYing their wedding could easily do the same – just make sure you allow enough time because the plaits took forever, they were totally worth it though!
I sourced the items on the table from charity shops, the table number was from a local store that was closing down and I made the initials by discovering the fabulous world of decoupage!
This was such a fun shoot to work on and I loved getting my craft on to try a bit of DIY but I really couldn’t have done it without my wonderful dream team of suppliers and of course Shannon!
