Sometimes when I have an ideas for a styled shoot with our props I just don’t know if people will get it. And this was one of those shoots. I know that some brides might not be ready for mini deer sculls and cactus plants in their wedding styling but I think some of our Little Lending Brides might just roll with this….
I always wanted to offer something a little different in styling and this is exactly why I decided to style this shoot with our more ‘Alternative’ items in the range. My love for succulents and cactus just seems to grow lately and it was the perfect opportunity to showcase some of our little potted lovelies from The Little Lent Nursery that we have been busy potting and planting over the last few months.
And old rustic barn wall at Glebe Farm, Carlton Forehoe was the perfect backdrop for our ‘Green Party’ cake table. Terracotta pots full of our home-growns, earth ware and a whole lotta moss we’re brought to the table. This was one cake table styled with a difference. The wedding cake table is taking center stage and no longer are cakes just put in the corner on any spare table sitting on a silver cake board. Oh no! With this shoot we wanted to try something slightly different for the style-savvy and off-beat bride to ponder….
I was totally over the moon when Festival Brides blog featured the shoot and you can read more about how this dessert table came together with a perfect dream team of suppliers here. A huge thanks to The Little Party Company with their sweet treats, Buns of Fun for making a totally awesome retro Bundt cake and The Country Florist who brought that rad CAKE moss covered letters. Tatum Reid as ever with her photography magic and Love Toppings with their acrylic topper giving the cake a lot of cool.
With our slate tiles, glass cake stands and jars, milk churns, apple crates, mini lemonade bottles and old fashioned drinks dispensers all brought along to this shoot we can help create this fresh rustic look for your events and happy to liase with your caterer to help your vision come to life.
Are you planning a styled cake table, perhaps you like the idea of lots of cakes and deserts over the big traditional cake?
This shoot was also the perfect test for our ‘Styled stations’ that I have been mulling over for some time now. I have been busy collecting more props and pieces for wedding stations that can really make your days rock. There will be 3 main stations to start with ; Welcome Drinks station, Sweet Treats Station and Rustic Decor station. I really can’t wait to share these with you in the coming weeks once they have been photographed.
Keep an eye out on Facebook and Instagram for sneaky set ups…
