I’m finally made some time to bring back one of our favourite shoots of last year to our little blog. One of the biggest collaborations back in May was with the super cool Festival Brides blog, I can’t tell you how much I loved working with this awesome UK wedding blog. Here’s how our white on white shoot came together….

The idea of a modern, simple white wedding has been something I’ve been obsessed with for a while. So many stunning white-on-white images we’re flooding my Pinterest and it had been on my radar for a while to work on something very minimal and play with the idea of layering all the whites. White symoblises purity; a cleanliness and innocence, it’s a stunning colour in its own right and if you’re looking for a minimal timeless palette for your wedding, just keep it easy with all white tones and a tonne of greenery to boot.


I was keen for all the suppliers involved to bring their creativity to the shoot, I really wanted to capture lots of subtle textures. I worked with the florists and talked about lots of white seasonal flowers, from big blossomy blooms to more modern leafy and whispy stems to really create something a little unruly, home-grown and wild on the flower front. Emma at Buns of Fun on the cakes made a trio of cakes, something we’d been thinking about for some time. I love the idea of a mix of textural finishes on the cake stacks and created a platform display for the 3 cakes. It made for some really interesting shots that were captured in the candle light.

Our table scape was draped with an organic white cotton muslin, and also had a spotty white net sheer fabric; they really helped create the base once rouched to nestle props among.

The stationery was super modern, clean and cool. It fitted into the table setting perfectly. Emma Jo also made the most delicate little paper fern leaves for the plates.


We went for 3 big backdrop set ups at the venue. A very soft chalky grey marble effect cotton backdrop. This was a DIY effort from myself before the shoot. Created by using a large cotton sheet, make sure its damp to start with, then using fabric paint that was watered down mixing black and white paints I created a type of cloud/marble effect with a large brush in super soft greys. Darker grey was used with a smaller brush to create outlines within the brush shapes. On the day we then used trailing clematis with pins onto the draped fabric for the ultimate romantic frame.

The second backdrop was all from foraged branches and leaves. With Michelle from the florists we worked carefully into the walls of the barn with small pins again creating a frame work for the branches to lightly sit. We built it up almost to the top of the barn wall in one area. It was a stunning wild backdrop that gave the illusion of living plants growing inside.


The final backdrop was our Wallpaper from Graham and Brown taped and hung behind our table. We then white spray painted some fresh leaves and flower heads, these we’re then taped to the wall paper sporadically to create a 3D element and again creating more texture and shades of white against the crumbling painted exterior wall.


It was important to achieve something very uncomplicated, cool and fresh. You can be so much more creative with a simple palette because you start to think about other elements; the light, the texture and the tones and shapes that can be formed. Less is always so much more for me as a stylist. The key to the white-on-white look not being underwhelming is of course adding interest with the textures, using interesting cut glass tumblers or glazed ceramic plates on the tables. With an abundence of white candle light a white-on-white reception can be soothing and tranquil and totally breathtaking.

So I suddenly realised it’s been a while since I co-ordinated and styled this shoot, over a year in fact so it’s about time I shared it here after it’s been fabulously featured in Perfect Wedding Magazine, the new issue of Norfolk Brides magazine and on The Wedding Bazzar blog.









Dark, moody and full of casual opulence was the feeling I wanted to capture. Looking to darker palettes of charcoal greys, aubergine purples, deep reds and proving black is totally a wedding palette choice.

Highlights of brass and copper we’re used amidst the tablescape from the brass vessels and candlesticks to the back drop through modern geometric copper himmelli hanging shapes amongst a soft green foliage garland.

Deep purple with gold leaf macaroons we’re our favours set down on the place settings. Bowls of cut fruits and nuts we’re laid in little tarnished silver dishes for more opulent detailing with trailing silk ribbon through the tablescape.

The bridal looks we’re kept classic with fishtail silhouettes with lots of embellishment on the dresses but with modern styling of the accessories, from leather jackets to patent pointed shoes. The hair and make-up was also very modern with a slicked back low chignon for the hair and dark, moody eyes in smokey tones and plum lips. Who says you can’t go for a little drama on the big day with your bridal look?

A second look was then shot in a mini black sequined dress and black veil. White isn’t for all brides so it felt great to create something a little more daring but ultimately stunning, it would make for an amazing evening change.

Our guy wore a classic tux and also adorned a floral scarf rather than a traditional button hole. Suede brougues moderninsed our gents look.

A black forrest mix of colours and tones were used through the use of flowers, two tone burgundy Hydrangea, deep red tulips, dusky pink cymbidium orchids, burgundy dhalias, black baccara roses, white anemones, finisher, deep black/aubergine calla lillies, skimmia with eucalyptus, ferns and French ruscus within the table arrangement and bouquet.

The cake was designed to match in with the stunning array of rich coloured flowers and used the watercolor effect from the stationary as a backdrop on a plain white background. We wanted the cake to contrast with the rich, dark hues that were being used bringing in golds and coppers to add a touch of glamour.

Stationery was beautifully dark with subtle watercolour tones and a written modern calligraphy font. We created a hanging escort table plan using silk ribbon ties from a floral arrangement.

Details of cheese boards laid with dark chocolate and fruits and cocktail trolleys all add to the casual luxe vibes we wanted to create.

Back in the spring we created a very simple, styled shoot at Godwick Hall. They have the most incredible Georgian house with stunning decor where intimate ceremonies can be held with your favourite people. I’m in love with the idea of elopement, ‘run-away’ weddings right now and where all the focus is on the couple and their love for one another.
Doesn’t the idea of driving miles away from home to somewhere peaceful and remote to say your vows to one another sound like the ultimate romantic adventure?

I kept to a palette of white mostly and fresh green for the set up, with florals to be seasonal and foliages to create lots movement. There was a foodie emphasis for the shoot, well why not go all out on the catering if you’re celebrating with just a few people to make it really the best meal ever. We set up an outdoor ceremony space in the garden and also two options in the hall too, with minimal decor pieces, using brass candle sticks and vessels and a few cut glass candle holders to add a little luxe. An old roll top bottle green car was a favourite in the shoot and the words ‘Come away with me’ that I wrote on the window.

Hey engaged folk!

Firstly I’m going to start with an apology, the blog has definitely take a back seat this summer season. It’s been a bit testing so far, I mean awesome, but also a bit tough with more lenders than ever! You might have spotted our baby news on social media, so my energy’s been flagging and not been feeling my usual 100% the last few weeks. There have been quite a few power naps at LLHQ just to get through the day! It also means you might have waited a little longer for replays on email, which is not cool I know, but thank you all so so much for your patience. I’m feeling a little more on top now so let’s roll on into all that August has to offer.

So this shoot was styled last year. It was a competition ran by Kathy Ashdown Photography to offer a woodland engagement shoot styled by yours truly. Long standing LL fans will have spotted bits of this shoot on our Instagram and Facebook over the months but thought it was time to share my favourites from the shoot.

Our hot couple we’re made up by Emily of Love Moi Make-up and Hair by Tracey Ward. Heather Jackson was second shooter so no details we’re missed at Swanton Morley gardens where in-house florist Crown Flowers added lots of natural green to the set ups.

I’m all about getting the engagement shoot to be about you two, doing something you would usually do together, celebrating your hobbies and passions.
With this shoot I wanted to create lots of autumnal seasonal tones, from the foliages to the clothing the couples wore.
I created a make-shift tipi filled with rugs for the first backdrop for our duo, draped with lots of foraged greenery and antlers adorned the top.
We lit a camp fire on the woodland floor for the couple to cosy up together in tartan blankets and have hot chocolates and marshmallows on sticks. Pure cuteness!
A rustic picnic followed, again using simple, natural foods teamed with lots of rustic decor pieces and a smidge of candle light.
Finally we strung soft festoon lights in a log store. This shoot was all about capturing the warmth and romance of the couples love.

For those of us that have followed us for a while you’ll know we love a photoshoot. It’s a chance to get together with like minded people and get those creative juices flowing. And theres always a new prop buy I’ve been wanting to style up…

So last year Lolly at The Keeper and the Dell asked us if we’d like to be involved with a shoot over at her incredible venue. A chilled out, eclectic shoot with Norfolk’s coolest suppliers with all the love and glamour of a Mediterranean gathering to be a loose theme of the day. In Lolly from The Keeper and the Dell’s words, “Imagine an artistic/celebrity couple with a true eclectic edge, wanting to marry in crazy England but with a Mediterranean connection. Capturing the feel of photographer Tim Walker (but staying this side of crazy) with the glorious glamour feel of a Dolce & Gabbana family gathering.”

Well it was just that. Extravagant staging, boho styling, romantic motifs, bold colours, a powerful sense of family and above all, a strong editorial shooting style….

Way back in the Spring of last year I decided I had to do a fine art beach shoot, but with a Lending twist of course. I loved the ideas of a wild horseback runaway bride, running free on an open beach. It was important for me to keep everything very soft and natural with a nod to easy boho vibes. We asked the incredible Rebecca Lindon photography to capture it for us on film photography. There is something really beautiful about film photography and knew it would be a perfect fit for this shoot.










“With a vision of a nomad costal shoot in soft, simple layers textures we mixed elements of luxe Protea flowers, mosses and succulents amongst a table scape of texture from hand dyed silk linens, painted feathers, antlers and a little shine from the antique brass candles on upturned crates in the sand. Simple silhouette dresses, windswept braided hair and barefeet we’re the perfect look for our bride adorned with rose quartz jewels. A palette of grey, indigo blue and fawn kept things contemporary and grounded with subtle highlights of pastel rose. A stacked ombre grey cake along with soft brushed stationery designs finished the set up.”

A while back you might have seen I was a bit over excited about our props being featured on a front cover. OMG moment. It was all thanks to being a part of this super stunning bridal shoot arranged by the gorgeous model Lucy Scarfe.


We set up a simple little area down on the beach with our blue persian rug, shepherds hooks and jars, cylinders with candles, old lanterns and a few picnic baskets and vintage books. The perfect spot for a sweet proposal picnic or coastal ceremony focal point.

You guys must think I’m forever on photo shoots! Lately it feels like I am hopping from one to another and never get to show you the full results, just those little sneak peeks on our Instagram. So that’s why to feels great to share these shots from Tatum Reid Photography of a product shoot from the winter with G & T Typography.

We headed to a scrap yard, full of eerie charm and shot on old cars, fire engines and used derelict houses as a back drop. I took along my ladder and plank for one of the set ups.

We then headed to a forgotten little barn and filled with smaller props form the range to compliment the letters and shapes. From little wooden drawers, stoneware bottles, potted plants and lanterns I created little pockets of detail around those pretty awesome lights.

For the bigger set we used our trolley, small rug and hanging lamp shades to set the scene and popped in books and antlers for a cool, eclectic home feel contrasted against our industrial surrounds.

But our old vintage bike had to be my favourite and loved the mini polaroids from the shots of Georgie and Tim at G & T at the end.

Seriously though, head to G & T’s brand new site and put one in your basket.
