A wedding styled shoot featuring a fair few talented suppliers and lots of gorgeous wedding inspiration!
The inspiration for this shoot came from a chance meeting with Katherine Jo Designs in Bristol. Jo (she prefers being called that) wanted to showcase her latest designs at a venue where beauty was in abundance but bamboo was also played a huge part.
The Matara in Tetbury was the perfect venue, it ticked all the above wishes and so many more. We set to and gathered a list of wants and picked the suppliers who were perfect for the shoot. The result was, in our humble opinion, mind blowing gorgeous. Take a look for yourselves and don’t be shy to tell me what you think.
Below are the words I put together for the shoot to be published on non other than The English Wedding Blog. I was grinning all over when Claire agreed to publish the shoot for us. Anyway, here goes!
Part one: quintessentially English styling with a beautiful Asian twist
Featuring lots of pinks and gold, stunning light and gorgeous styling from all our local suppliers. Peonies and orchids, golds and bamboo, all matching and beautifully creative. Bursting with inspiration and pretty details and from cakes to stationery, rings to table centre pieces, beauty in all directions.
Part two: romantic portraits in the secret garden
With pretty hedgerows leading in to a garden of tranquillity, just perfect for the couple’s private romantic portraits. The Matara has so many secret areas just crying out to be used for those dreamy romantic portraits. Total peace and nothing but bird song with swaying bamboo and pretty grassy tracks leading to buttercup fields and a cute little bridge, just perfect.
Part three – sustainable wedding style
The third theme featured a separates dress created by Katherine Jo Designs from bamboo silk, (sustainably and ethically produced). This beautiful set of separates is so soft and feminine. Off the shoulder showing beautiful bone structure and of course your chosen jewellery, in this case a diamond necklace created by Holly Robinson Jewellery. May I add here that Holly Robinson Jewellery also personally creates her designs from sustainably sourced diamonds and precious metals. All of Katherine Jo’s designs can be created using recycled and sustainable fair-trade fabrics. This design was separates with the under bodice created in an organic cotton jersey and the lace bodice made from recycled/repurposed lace. Featured here among the bamboo which we though was rather fitting!
Here are all the incredibly talented wedding suppliers involved in this shoot. You will want to make note of these guys for your big day, they book up fast so be quick!
