BRITISH BACKYARD URBAN PRETTY REAL WEDDING.

Crickey! I can’t believe we’ve not blogged this gorgeous real backyard wedding inspo before now. Back in the spring of last year I was lucky enough to be asked along by Louise Beukes, Editor of B.loved blog to be her styling assistant for the wedding of Sinclair, owner of Maids to Measure. I mean, really, for someone new to the wedding industry this was an opportunity I was not going to miss!
So with my little van ram packed full of lends I headed to Portsmouth for something very special…

I learnt so much more than I thought by shadowing the brilliant Louise, from thinking through the logistics of setting up a wedding, how to organise a team of suppliers right down to the essentials for a styling kit. It was after this wedding that I knew I wanted to be more involved with wedding styling and not just prop hire.

The wedding was super stylish, beautiful seasonal flowers from Liz of Blue Sky Flowers lined table tops with lots of potted plants and herbs. A palette of mid-grey, white and bright pops of pink on the stationery was perfect. Modern contemporary all the way for this back-yard city wedding with a whole heap of pretty.
It was incredible to see the space transform under the organisation of Anna from Bride and Glory; There was a ceiling filled with fresh foliage and festoon lights, then we set to hanging my galvanised buckets as suspended drinks holders which really added the cool and the floor was covered in old persian rugs.
The graffiti garage was transformed with drinks station details and a more pretty blooms to soften the bar top. An adjoining lounge with throws and cushions featured our mini skulls and antlers on the table with cigars for the boys and baskets of cushions to cosy up with.
