[Behind the scenes]: A sneak peek behind the wedding style shoot

If you follow me on IG, FB or Twitter, you’ve probably seen my updates about the work I was doing for a wedding style-shoot in collaboration with Louise Machpherson Wedding Design. Louise was our on-the-day wedding coordinator who I got on with brilliantly at the time of our wedding and thereon after (it is so refreshing to work with people on the same creative wavelength!) Back in March, she got int touch to see if I’d be interested in working with her and other wedding suppliers for a wedding style shoot she was putting together. I was obviously, super delighted by this! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to physically attend the shoot as it was the following morning from my return from Dubai. Nevertheless, having always wanted to work on style shoots for aaages, I jumped at the opportunity and agreed I’d do whatever I could from London and have it posted up! We got liaising, pinging back and forth numerous emails on things that inspired us. Louise was keen to have a ‘white on white’ theme for the shoot with a subtle hint of gold and rose, keeping the overall look very clean and contemporary but with an air of glamour – totally up my street! :)

The shoot took place last Monday at the Lighthouse in Glasgow and I managed to create some handmade prints and decor for this fabulous occasion. I’m not going to reveal much on what exactly my work entailed just yet (the big reveal will come soon!) but it does involve clean lines, geometry, shimmery gold ink and more! Thoroughly enjoyed every minute working on this project. Still gutted I wasn’t able to be there on the morning to see it all come together but delighted I was a part of it – thank you Louise! So here’s a wee teaser by Mallard Weddings of what went on behind the scenes! There will be more coming on this so make sure you keep your eyes peeled! :D xx

I’m not one for great amounts of bling or shiny things but I was pretty chuffed when I got this lovely gold sequinned capped-sleeve bolero (at a great bargain too!) especially after having wanted one like this quite some time ago. It’s a perfect piece of accessory for those days where you just want to glitz up your overall look by either teaming it up with a plain black dress for a formal dinner or with skinny jeans and a top for a night out. It’s not over the top but simple enough to exude a bit of glamour! :D So I’m looking forward to sporting this soon! As usual, I did use this opportunity to take plenty of photos (some of you may have seen them on IG) but here’s one for you guys :)
