Get ready lovelies, because I am about to make. your. week. with this pretty! From the minute this gorgeous Mexican-inspired shoot landed in my inbox I have been dying to share it with you! First off, it all takes place at the incredible Crystal Barn, and I’m so excited for the chance to show it off in all it’s quirky, elegant, total-venue-crush glory! In fact, it’s such an inspiring place that it was the location itself that set stylist Jacqui Trinder of Accentuate Hair & Makeup dreaming up this whole scene. She pulled together a dream team of local vendors, and the result is utterly wow! There’s so much here to get your heart beating faster and inspire your own nuptials – bright floral crowns, baroque opulence, bold colours and custom stationery, insanely beautiful McCarthy Wolff dresses, adorable iced biscuits, and you guys – a DONKEY. I mean, it really has it all, including beautiful images by Lar Photography. Let’s dive in!
I always feel like I’m opening a village fete at the start of the year, like I should be standing in front of this feature in a big hat and a Sunday dress, with a comically large pair of scissors. I declare this wedding season OPEN! Well, I do. It’s our first real wedding of the year, and I can’t think of a better way to begin than with this dramatic, drop dead gorgeous celebration from Roxanne Davison. Jessica and Brent were inspired by red roses, and art (specifically still life) and a touch of Baroque opulence in creating the design for their Midlands wedding, and wow, is it a showstopper! I love everything, from the fruit and flower-decked tables, to the bridesmaids in Spanish-style black lace, to the bride’s amazing Casey Jeanne gown. And I spy one of our favourite venues too, with some of the couple shoot taking place at the incredible Crystal Barn, part of the SBB Collection of venues. So much pretty in one place, beautifully captured by Roxanne. Let’s do this!
