A retro red and blue wedding

Happy Friday everyone! We are VERY excited here at The Paper Bride as we have our very first real wedding to share with you. And as it’s SO dull and grey out there right now, we’ve chosen one that’s filled with bold colours and summer florals to brighten up your day.

The wedding took place at Old Down Manor – a beautiful old country house that overlooks the Cotswolds – and was shot by Lizzy May Photography. Believe it or not, super-talented Lizzy also designed all of the stationery! “I first met Sarah (the bride) when she visited our pop-up shop, the Little Wedding Space, in Bristol,” says Lizzy. “She loved our suppliers so much she booked us all at once! She chose me to do photos and stationery, Kirsten Butler for styling, Anna Tyler for the cake and Emma Norton for the flowers.”

Let’s take a look…

Woodland wedding inspiration

Our good friend Kirsten Butler – AKA The Little Wedding Helper – knows a thing or two about wedding styling. We met her at a wedding fair at Bristol Zoo (yes, you can get married at the zoo!) about five years ago and since then we’ve watched her win countless awards and style hundreds of south west weddings.

Kirsten recently sent us this beautiful shoot, photographed by the uber-talented Frances Taylor and shot at Bristol wedding venue Arnos Vale. Did you know that you can get married there in the woods at twilight? How romantic is that?

Of course, being The Paper Bride, the bit we’re lusting over most is the stunning hand-illustrated stationery by Harriet de Winton. If we could get married again, we’d so be choosing this!

Winter wedding invites

We’re loving the trend for pretty florals, but they can look a little too summery for a winter wedding. Getting married at this time of year doesn’t have to mean going for icy blues and whites or festive red and green, either – try one of these gorgeous, grown-up options for size…

1) Add a little gold dust with these foiled Luna invitations from Artcadia (invites from £4.15) – nothing says winter glamour like luxurious letterpress invites.

Tuesday trend: Back to black

Think wedding stationery has to be all pretty pastels and ivory cardstock? Then think again with this season’s gorgeous trend for black and white designs. A monochrome palette has the potential to look severe, but mix it up with whimsical fonts and floral motifs to add a touch of modern romance. Here are some of our favourites…

1) Printed Love Co‘s beautiful Claudia collection (invites from £2.30), combines a chalkboard effect with baker’s twine and hessian for a modern take on rustic style.

3) The sweet, sketched designs on the Hedgerow collection from The Charming Press (invites from £2) strikes the perfect balance between a contemporary colourway and kitsch-cool details.
