An Artisan Collaboration

The day is finally here! I get to show you an incredible story and a rare behind the scenes look at an Artisan collaboration with some amazingly talented, local suppliers here in Cornwall.

There is often so much more to creating a bespoke bridal look than you might think. The beauty in the creative process is one to be treasured and appreciated, as well as admiring the stunning finished product. There is so much planning, thought and craft that goes into each aspect, it's a pleasure to show you more to the story.

Each one of our buisnesses has a deep respect for our natural and organic environment and in this instance, we focused our inspiration around our beautiful home by the sea in Cornwall. Taking you from the very beginning, we show you the wonderful possibilities of organic product, materials and processes in creating a bridal look, starting with the organic/eco friendly silk fabrics, using local Camellia flowers for natural dyeing, through to creating a bespoke wedding gown, organic flowers for the bouquet, beautiful stationary, locally crafted jewellery and stunning film photography.

This is something I can truly say I am deeply passionate about, it is an incredibly exciting thing to create such beauty whilst doing what we can for our enivornment and it shows how easily accessible it can be. I plan to write a future blog post going into more detail about the amazing organic/eco friendly fabrics that I used to create the bepoke wedding gown.

A Vintage Styled Photoshoot at Enys House

Earlier this year I had the chance to work with a brilliant team of suppliers at a really wonderful location and wedding venue, Enys House in Cornwall. The building, once part of a grand estate has 800 years of history and is truly enchanting, the perfect setting for a vintage styled photoshoot.

The 1930s had the most beautiful aesthetic, the height of decadent luxury and romance. The model wears a full length silk chiffon and crepe skirt, with an intricately beaded tulle cover up all finished with couture techniques.

This wonderful photoshoot can currently be seen in the latest Cornwall edition of Wed Magazine.
