FIT BRIDES Event at Frame Kings Cross

FRAME-04-23-16-Fit Brides-011Last weekend, I had my first experience showcasing at an alternative wedding event, hosted by award-winning wedding planners Knot & Pop and Frame Kings Cross (a dance, fitness and holistic studio). The ‘FIT BRIDES‘ event was an alternative wedding event very much focussed on the modern bride. The afternoon offered brides to come down to get a feel for the classes Frame offer, as well as gain insights and inspiration from the best in the wedding/fashion/beauty industries….the likes of Liz Earle, Bobbi Brown, THE OUTNET, Patchwork, London Lightbox, Georgina BoyceLucy Says I Do, etc. So, on that note, here’s a few photographs from the day to give you an idea how things panned out!

I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive at first at the thought of running a workshop AND live painting in front of people at any public event. When I work on any painting/installation jobs, it tends to require a lot of focus and normally done within the quiet realms of my studio…..and even when I’m out doing murals, I’m still relatively cut away from any interaction from people, so this definitely tested a lot of my skills…..multitasking being one of them! ;) Anyway, it turned out to be a fun experience and I’m actually so glad to have done it – not only did I get to meet both potential clients and suppliers in the industry, but my workshop turned into a little art-therapy haven on the day.  I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it! So yea – this may be the start of something new…who knows eh! :)

Here’s a few more photos I took of my little stand and of the workshop in progress. Enjoy the rest of your week folks, and I’ll be back with more……I’ve soon much to catch up on here! xx

In the Press | An Elegant City Chic Wedding Shoot

This isn’t quite Christmassy, I know but I’ve been looking forward to sharing this styled shoot on here – one, we worked on back in April this year which got featured on both Wedding Magazine (October edition) and B.Loved Blog this autumn! I’ve obviously had to wait till after we secured those features to reveal any of it to you ;)

Styled and directed by my dear friend and wedding planner Elisabetta of Linen & Silk Weddings, this shoot encapsulates all the chicness you find in a über glamorous city wedding. It infuses a lot of monochrome vibes, clean lines with bright colours and rich copper hues to bring you a harmonised combination of both masculine and feminine elements…..reflecting both your modern-day bride and groom.

My role in this shoot was to design and create all the stationery elements and key installation pieces that involved a lot of hand-lettering…which y’all know by now, is what I LOOOOOOVE especially when they involve big backdrop pieces.

So what do you think? Don’t you just fancy a bit of monochrome love and all that copper jazz now!? I love how it oozes luxury but without it being all OTT! I think it would be perfect for New Year coming to think of it! :)

As always, it’s been freaking amazing working alongside some of the most super talented folk in the wedding industry so I do urge you guys to check them out if you’ve got a wedding on the horizon that needs planning. Oh and before I forget, here’s a beautiful little video of us working hard behind the scenes of this shoot, thanks to Edgar of Wedding Films London. Happy Monday!
