What are the odds that two people will meet, fall madly in love and promise to spend the rest of their lives together?! Pretty amazing, right? So, in my eyes, a wonderful meeting like that deserves a once in a lifetime, completely unique and personal party!
And that’s where I step in…I want to get to know you. What makes you giddy with excitement (apart from your husband or wife to be!) rosy with joy, and head over heels with happiness, so that I can translate that inspiration into a beautiful representation of you both.
“What is a wedding stylist?” I hear you say. Are you a planner? Not quite…a wedding stylist will look after the whole look and feel of the event. It’s like the difference between the role of an interior designer, as opposed to that of a builder! Both have different but equally important roles to play, depending on your needs. I will help you to thread your style and story into every aspect of the day, creating a cohesive experience that is not just a wedding, but your wedding.
You have your own inherent wedding style (even if it don’t know it yet!) It’s my job to help you discover it and to maximize the potential that comes with such a celebration. Your love should be the foundation of your day, but the aesthetic elements have a huge impact in conveying the mood, values and emotion that you want to express.
As every couple is different, it’s hard to outline a defined list of what wedding styling and design includes. I can give you as much or as little help as you feel you need. That might be simply getting you off to the right start with a creative consultation session, or to bring you right through the process up to your big event.
Services include, but are not limited to:
Creative Consultation Session
Working with you to create an inspiration concept and colour story that reflects your style and values. This results in an inspiration board, which you can use as a visual representation for all your suppliers
Helping to turn your venue into a space that speaks to you. Ensuring that every aspect of the décor is reflective of your personal taste, creating a cohesive experience for you and your guests. Typically this includes collaborating with your venue and suppliers to create the perfect floral design, table settings, invitations and paper details (table numbers, place cards, programmes, menus etc.) drinks table and dessert display, though there’s often lots more!
Bridal & Fashion Styling
I can provide guidance on all the fashion details for the day for the bride, groom and bridesmaids. Lots of brides know exactly what kind of dress they have dreamed of, but would like more guidance when it comes to the shoes and accessories that will complete their look. Or maybe you’d like some help bringing a little extra oomph to your engagement shoot?
Prop Shopping and Sourcing Service
Once we have defined your personal style, I can guide you on where and how to source the details and elements that will bring the aesthetic story of your day together.
Design Set up and Day of Styling
I can be there on the day of your event to implement all the little details and bring your dream to life!
Editorial & Interior Styling
In addition to my wedding styling services, I am available as an Editorial and Interior stylist. I love getting to work with talented photographers and designers to help bring their vision to reality. Editorial content can be created especially for a specific magazine or publication according to their needs.
