Royal Wedding Inspired Street Party

So, you know by now about the photoshoot we co-ordinated and styled recently – and I’m proud and delighted to say that it was featured yesterday on the fabulous Love My Dress.

You can read all about how the shoot was put together and which lovely people we worked with on Love My Dress, but we’re so happy with Cat Hepple’s gorgeous pictures, we just HAVE to put some on here too!  Hope you love them.

It’s made us think about what we’re going to do on 29 April – old fashioned street party or head in to York and join in with the crowds, we can’t decide.  Tell us your plans – we’re totally prepared to be influenced!! xx


My Fabulous Friday

Sometime ago, I was walking home when I had a great idea for a photoshoot inspired by a certain couple’s forthcoming nuptials .  The full details shall, for now, remain under wraps, but I can’t resist sharing some of them with you here!

I wanted to create something with a quintessentially English feel, that would inspire and bring a smile to people’s faces – something unique, vintage and above all FUN!

I shared my vision with the wonderfully talented photographer Cat Hepple, who produced the marvellous images you can see below, and who captured our ideas so perfectly.  Cat’s modern take on vintage style shows off the gorgeous vintage outfits perfectly, and has made the streets of York look so vibrant – who knew there were so many colours in our own little stomping ground?!

As is generally the case with these things, several heads are better than one, and I also have to say a huge thank you to the following contributers who gave their time, support and creativity so freely and without whom, this shoot would not have been possible…..

Sarah Richardson at Leafy Couture for her beautiful flowers

Claire Weir at Just Darling Cakes for creating an amazing cake

Keeley & Diane at Discover Vintage for loaning us some stunning vintage outfits

Natalie Ramsell at I Am Nat for her wonderful and original stationery designs

Leanne Bennett at LAB Make Up for her vintage inspired hair and make up looks

and Lucy at Bunting Queen for sending us some of her pretty bunting

Can’t wait to share the rest of these fabulous photos with you – hope you love them as much as we do xx
