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.

New shoot • Behind the scenes

Our first shoot was taken in a stunning location on the coast in Cornwall, surrounded by long, flowing grasses and brilliant sunshine (what luck!). We had so much fun and the whole team were brilliant. We wanted it to look very natural and soft with styling, showcasing the delicate dress and emphasising natural beauty. Here are a few shots from behind the scenes!
