We are so pleased Laura found her way to us. It seems she fell in love with our Lady of the Lake photo shoot (I think I need to share that one again) whilst talking with ZT Photography and knew there and then that the creative team involved in that project would be perfect to bring her wedding ideas to life.
From that very first conversation with Laura we were beyond excited. She described her wedding as Contemporary Nordic and her look was going to be heavily inspired by Daenerys Targaryen of Game of Thrones. There were some key design aspects Laura wanted to incorporate into her design; silk and leather, strong shoulders, nipped in waist, an open back, hearts, bling and a skirt that was straight from the front but had a dramatic train… and I think we ticked all those boxes.
After those initial consultations with Laura we realized our creative styles were very similar; our suggestions of chains as lace-up and the contrast of spikes and crystals in the embellishment were met with eager excitement and layering the hearts on the train to look like dragon scales was far too exciting.
We had so much fun with Laura’s design that we were given pretty much free reign with her accessories: huge teardrop bouquet incorporating 3 large anters, studded leather gauntlet and arm cuff, antler headpiece and intertwining braids along with bridesmaids posies and corsages and buttonholes for all the attendants and family.
This was once serious wedding for us to sink our teeth into and oh what a joy to see how the wedding came together! We have LOVED pouring over the amazing images Zo and Liam have taken… SO BLOOMING CREATIVE! and Kerry and Duncan, well, that hair – so beautifully complicated it’s absolutely breathtaking, and such dramatic makeup – absolutely perfect! We also gave Kerry quite a challenge in helping Laura into her dress (well the chain back had to be both structural AND decorative), but I have to say she rose to the challenge.
And to add to all that excitement Laura + Paul’s wedding was accepted to be featured on Rock N Roll Bride… really chuffed!!!
