DIY Paper Punch Backdrop

DIY Projects

Photos by:

This next paper backdrop that Kathryn Godwin created for us is a doozy. You can use leftover cardstock, paint chips, catalog pages or any other paper you may have laying around to create a jaw-dropping curtain backdrop. It’s as easy to make as it is to transport from your reception to a wall in your new home!

Mydolcefarniente – Weddings and Events in Italy

Dear beloved couples,

Thousand of kilometres divide us and you have to take a very important decision of choosing your destination wedding planner. Yes, i know it’s difficult to do without meeting the person. So, before we can have a Skype call to meet each other virtually, just a few lines about me. I’m a Tuscan soul since 2002, can’t stop thanking heavens for having “dropped” me in this marvellous land. Also for me the reason of moving to Italy was love :)
I’m completely in love with the wedding planning that I’m involved in since 2011. Your wedding is my wedding so if you choose Mydolcefarniente, you choose a highly professional team. I don’t apply the same fee for every event. I give the opportunity to the couple to choose the most appropriate solution for their dream wedding to come true. We work in a flexible way and offer different solutions unless we find the right option that satisfies your needs. We don’t have restrictions because the only things that counts is to make you happy.
Hear from you soon, Yuliya

Truvelle 2016 Bridal Collection

Fashion & Beauty

Truvelle is one of the wedding industry’s leading fashion designers, and we’re thrilled to be able to share with you all their most recent bridal collection.

Moving away from the warm tones captured in past collections, Truvelle takes a cooler toned direction for 2016. Designer Gaby Bayona has perfectly paired unusual fabrics and textures while staying true to Truvelle’s classic effortless style, creating gowns that enhance an already beautiful individual.

This year, the eight piece collection boasts stormy greys and hand-beaded laces, as well as milky ivories showcasing iridescent sparkle and unique ivory sequins. One statement gown displays a bodice featuring steel grey sequinned side panels. Another highlight are full silver jacquard skirts among gowns with Truvelle’s signature chiffon and lace bases. Charming sashes and grosgrain ribbons perfectly garnish each dress for a final touch. Subtle metallic embellishments, elegant, double straps and interesting, eye-catching cuts are among the statement details evident throughout the new designs.

Apple Orchard Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Nessa K Photography

I have fond memories of going apple picking with my family when I was younger, so you could say this styled shoot from Sarah Park and Nessa K Photography hits home for me. The theme was brilliantly executed, right down to the apple tucked into the bouquet by Petal and Print. If you weren’t in the spirit of autumn yet, you’ll definitely be ready now!

From the event stylist, Sarah of Sarah Park Events: For this shoot we were inspired by one of the most popular activities Fall has to offer, “Apple Picking.” We wanted to incorporate apples into the shoot as much as we could, so we found the most beautiful backdrop at Baugher’s Orchard and made magic happen. From the centerpiece to the escort card station, apples were everywhere! My favorite part of the shoot has to be the “Bobbing Station,” we took a simple idea and made it into a unique escort card station that guests will remember for years! I could have not asked for a better team to work with on this fall inspired shoot and we hope we have inspired many Fall brides.

CRIMSON LETTERS

My company, Crimson Letters creates unique hand painted wedding stationery, specialising in opulently painted, heavily illustrated design work, with calligraphy. All items are digitally printed from a master watercolour or acrylic artwork piece and individually and lovingly painted upon. Using only the finest papers and card stock sourced from London And Paris.

I’m a British designer with a degree in textile design, artist and a person with a passion for intricate creativity who’s inspired by all fine things, whether it’s food, interiors or architecture. I’m influenced heavily by my love of travelling, my rich heritage and travelling frequently through the Mediterranean where I have family in Portugal and Paris. I’m exhilarated and humbled by the beauty of this world. Bringing these ideas back to my design studio, each piece is fuelled from the cultures across the world.

I enjoy bringing a fresh decadent approach to wedding invitations, which are a timeless medium. I have always loved weddings and seeing the bride in her white dress has always been a magical moment for me. I feel completely over the moon to be able to create irreplaceable memoirs that the bride can look back on one day with a huge smile.

When I’m not busy in my design studio, I love exploring new parts of Europe, trying to improve my hopelessly basic French and Portuguese skiing, cross stitching, kissing my sons, watching period dramas and painting whilst drinking copious amounts of tea.
