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…
Lizzy created special signs for different parts of the day, including the guest book table, where guests could sign Jenga pieces instead of a traditional album.
Kids only area – genius!
“I think my favourite things to design were the table numbers. So simple, yet so effective when tied in with those incredible flowers,” says Lizzy.
A menu of macarons? Yes please!
“Sarah, the bride, is an expert crochet knitter, so she made dozens of tiny hearts to seal each macaron box, and lots of special pieces – like the crochet bunting.” How pleased would you be to receive these as favours? We know we would…
And last but not least, how gorgeous is this cake table? Those vibrant flowers and stunning four-tiered cake created a real ‘wow’ when you walked into the room.
We hope these beautiful pictures have inspired you – if you too want to visit the Little Wedding Space and meet these fantastic suppliers (and some new ones), it’s open again in Cabot Circus, Bristol next month from 6th-28th February.
