Some of you may have already seen my rather gleeful Facebook and Twitter updates earlier this afternoon (I couldn’t contain my excitement!) so I’d like to properly share the exciting news with my readers on here too.

Remember the ‘White on White’ wedding styled shoot I had the great pleasure to work on back in July with the lovely wedding planner Louise Macpherson? Well, I’m so thrilled to announce that it’s been featured on Love My Dress – a highly esteemed and award-winning wedding blog in the UK!!!! *shriek of delight* If you aren’t familiar with Annabel and her wedding blog then perhaps you may know her for her book Style Me Vintage: Weddings that came out earlier this year or for recently picking up a Perfect Wedding Magazine award for ‘highly recommended for the Best Blog’ category? Well if you still haven’t and you’re looking to indulge in elegant, chic and vintage-glamour weddings then you’ll find her blog an amazing source of inspiration from decor to fashion to lifestyle and I can definitely vouch for that!

Anyway, do pop over and check out the featured post by clicking here. I cannot express enough how grateful and honoured I am to have been part of this amazingly talented team of people (all part of the Glasgow Wedding Collective) who put their heart and soul to bring this design concept to life! Craig & Eva Sanders have captured the soft, pure and delicate mood so perfectly and to see these gorgeous photos again with all those little carefully thought out details, especially on Annabel’s wedding blog, makes this whole experience even more surreal and so fulfilling! If one can be ecstatic, overwhelmed and speechless at the same time…..that would be me right now!

And I don’t think I could say it enough but I will again: a MASSIVE and heartfelt ‘thank you‘ goes out to Louise (my former wedding planner and now good friend) for giving me this amazing opportunity to work with her on the decor and styling for this stunning shoot. She is one super talented lady with impeccable taste and great eye for detail – it’s an immense pleasure knowing her let alone working alongside her :)

Here’s to many more wedding prettiness and amazing projects! Actually, on that note, I can say that there is another fabulous style shoot coming up soon where I’ll be working with yet another team of inspiring, talented and widely acclaimed people within the UK wedding industry but I shall hold back from revealing too much now (you have no idea how hard that is!) and I’ll keep you posted when the time comes.

By golly, I think I’m on a complete wedding high this week!! :D

[Sneak Peek]: Wedding Styled Shoot – White on White

Okay, so here they are! Thanks to the talented Craig & Eva Sanders Photography here’s a little glimpse into the ‘White on White‘ Wedding style shoot that took place at The Lighthouse (Glasgow) in July. I’m absolutely excited by the final photos and I can’t thank wedding planner (and friend!) Louise Macpherson enough for the fantastic opportunity to work with her on the decor front for this shoot!! It really was a dream come true and I hope this is the start to many more fabulous opportunities! Well folks, there you have it!! :) xx

[Wall Art]: True Love Stories Never Have Endings

If you remember me going on about the wedding style shoot that I had worked on back in June/July where I had made two wall arts, some geometric wall hangings and table numbers. Well this post is on one of the main wall art pieces I had done bearing one of my favourite wedding-related quotes.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take photos of all the final pieces before sending them off (as the wall hangings were all made flat-pack to be assembled on site) and if I had I couldn’t have revealed it back then! But if you saw my wee sneak peek at the work I was doing and the behind-the-scenes video from the day of the shoot you probably would have seen glimpses of it? Anyway, I can tell you the official photos from the shoot are out and a  little taster of it will be coming up very shortly after this (!!!!) but in the mean time here’s my ‘True Love Stories Never Have Endings‘ print – where I designed a stencil using Art Deco-inspired fonts, hand cut it all and then used metallic gold pigment ink, which in the right light, gives you this beautiful powdery brushed effect! :)  BLOG_STRIP_wedding-style-shoot-WEB

Oh I do LOVE this piece….if I may say so myself!! ;) I have it hanging up on our wall along with all our other collection of prints and love how it’s turned out. The other wall art piece I did in the same techniques had the words “You & Me“. So, if you like this or want something similar made for a special occasion let me know!! xx

[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
