Real Wedding Inspiration: Adding a Pop of Personality to your Wedding Styling

February 17, 2014

Well hello there! It’s been a little while since I wrote on the blog as I was so busy I never seemed to find time. This year, I’ve decided to try to remedy that!

This week is all about creating a wedding theme which is right for you.  There are a lot of styles which you may not feel you quite fit into – perhaps you’re not a floral/vintage kind of couple and want to inject a little of your own personalities into  your wedding to be sure it feels personal on the day?

I created the wedding stationery for Emma (a beautiful, rockabilly bride to be) and James (a cool guitarist for a rock band). Their wedding encompassed their personalities perfectly, combining elements of Emma’s love of rockabilly and James’ nods to his work as a musician.

The fantastic setting for the day, Glemham Hall.

The happy couple – Emma wearing  the most beautiful, original 1950s lace gown from Camden market, for the bargain price of £40! She customised it with red beads.

A gal of many talents, the bride also made the bouquets, including a large, trailing button bouquet.

There were so many fun elements to this day mixed with beautiful styling, to create a really unique and personalised wedding, including pom poms, band covers for table names and jagermeister favours!

The bride wore Vivienne Westwood shoes for the ceremony, then kicked them off and opted for bright red Converse at the reception (the groom wore black Converse).

Being a tattooed bride and groom, this also featured on their wedding  stationery, but was kept soft with lace elements.

Double sided favour tags with tattoo styling and black lace embellishment.

The bride and groom had a candy bar with lots of pretty, sweet filled jars. Elle Is For Love made the signage and sweetie bags to continue the theme.

The styling was continued throughout their stationery, with the rock and roll/tattoo theme ablaze on their framed table plan. The button features tied in with the bride’s bouquet.

They chose to use guitars as their guest book for everyone to sign (including guest book signs courtesy of Elle Is For Love), which now hang on their lounge walls! A great memento!

Speaking of Crumb Bespoke Cakes, Anmar made the most fantastic and impressive cake for Emma and James! Incorporating lace, tattoo style roses and swallows and complete with Choccywoccydoodah white chocolate skull topper!

A lot of fun was had in their home made photo booth! Family and friends making good use of it! I made a matching sign for the photo booth (lower photo, courtesy of Crumb Bespoke Cakes)

It was still very much a family day, with her gorgeous daughter, Jess, in  her own white lace dress.

The day was filled with love and laughter and at the heart were two individuals in love.

I think you’ll agree, this wedding is a great reflection of this couple and works really well to show  how you can make your wedding, your way, whatever your style or budget.
