Styled shoot: I fell in love with Disco

As you know there is nothing we love more than getting involved in a styled shoot. Well there might be one or two things, but getting together with our friends in the industry and creating something new is right up there with seeing our brides happy on their wedding day. Well, today’s inspiration is the result of joining forces with Typical Type and Tiree Dawson. You’ve seen us work with these guys before on our Viking shoot, our Dip dye and Tweed shoot and our En Hiver shoot but this is a little different… when Megan and Tiree get their heads together crazy things happen and I’m putting this one right up there. Who knew 70’s disco glitter balls would create such beautiful style inspiration? Well take a look… (and scroll to the end to follow links to everyone involved) We created 2 dresses: Pandora Pandora calls back to the 70’s with its boho vibe that brings to mind the disco beat of flares, soft lace and high waist dreamy maxi dresses. This dress is truly individual and so romantic with its oversized hood and flowing sleeves cut from lace which has the deepest of deep borders. So, while it Continue Reading →

We’ve been quiet but look at everything we’ve been up to…

You know we’re busy right? The ‘I don’t even have time to check my shirt is on the right way out’ kinda busy. The ‘I’m placing orders twice because I’d rather have 2 than find out I didn’t order any’ kinda busy. The kinda busy where if a job takes more than 30 seconds to complete and isn’t directly connected to a brides order it simply gets added to the ever increasing ‘to do’ list. I bleat on about it ALL the time. I feel like I’m constantly harping on about how little time there is in a day or the things I’ve yet to do… or maybe I don’t? I realise that even though I have this constant monologue going on in my head, very rarely does it leek out. And instead of telling you guys how crazy busy we are, or how our appointments are booked up for several weeks or that we’re not taking any more orders for this summer, it simply looks like we’ve gone quiet. Because writing a blog post takes time. And time feels like an ever decreasing commodity. As a result several weeks have passed since our last update and I’m scared by Continue Reading →

Steampunk adventures at Holmes Mill

We love Holmes Mill. It’s such a beautiful quirky venue. We love the industrial feel and decayed elegance, and if I’m honest the fact that it’s also a brewery and always has a crazy number of craft ales on tap is an added bonus. So when we were invited along to their Steampunk themed wedding fair at the beginning of March how could we say no? especially as it incorporated a shoot with the awesome Stella Photography. We had such a lovely time at Holmes Mill; the staff were just attentive I know that any couple getting married there would be well looked after. Seb and Zuzi of Stella Photography were also a riot work with too and just look at these images! great work! There were a few specially selected businesses on hand; businesses who’s style and creativity blend easily with the steampunk aesthetic. We were so pleased to see our firm favourites Beautifully Vintage had created an absolutely stunning Steampunk table show piece – one the Cottonopolis Coglective would fight over. And the gorgeous creations by Iced of Garstang were something to behold. We also loved the cute tin men by RES creative designs (as well as their Continue Reading →
