A Contemporary take on 1920's Styling

The 1920’s is a beautiful era, and perfect to draw inspiration from for weddings; luxurious, opulent and playful! As a stylist and designer it is important to capture the essence, rather than imitate an existing style and therefore incorporate elements and motifs whilst adding a contemporary twist.

Hollie from Daisy Says I Do oversaw each aspect to maintain the overall design. Our contemporary take on the 1920’s used many talented suppliers creating a...

Whilst hinting at Hollywood glamour in our bride’s style, the venue styling remained...

A Refined Country Style with a Luxurious Colour Palette

                  Having worked with Sheryl from Oobaloos Wedding Photography before I was excited when she asked me if I would like to style an inspirational shoot that she was working on, I love her style of photography and the emotion she portrays in her images. We developed the concept; a refined country theme with a luxurious colour scheme of rich pinks and reds. The Barn at Upcote provided the perfect backdrop for the shoot with a combination of beautiful Cotswold countryside, exquisitely renovated barns and unexpected vistas with every turn, needless to...
