Rosa Clara Bridal Collection 2015

I'm a bit in love with these wedding dresses from Rosa Clara this week! Incredibly elegant and stylish and with some wonderful detailing. I love the shoulder embellishment and the gorgeous detail on the sleeves of some of the dresses.
You can find a stockist for Rosa Clara by visiting their website http://www.rosaclarabridal.com/

Wedding Stationery With A Bespoke Venue Sketch And A South African Twist

One of my favourite ranges of wedding stationery ... and one of my most popular ... is my Perfect Place range. Its particularly popular because of the bespoke, hand drawn by me, sketch of your venue or place you met on the front of the invitation.

Earlier this year Sarah & David got in contact, who are getting married in South Africa and wanted a bit of a African twist on the Perfect Place theme.
The final design includes a drawing of their venue at the foot of Table Mountain and a twist on the monogram motif in the shape of Africa.
If you would like a version of Perfect Place for your wedding stationery please don't hesitate to get in touch via the contact page at http://knotsandkisses.co.uk


I love the neutral modern colours in Perfect Place and created the moodboard below to match the stationery range when it launched. For full credits see previous post http://knotsandkisses.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/wedding-styling-moodboard-strong.html

Autumn Wedding Inspiration

Its been all about Autumn on the blog this week ... and with a distinct change in the weather its no wonder we're all thinking of wrapping up a bit more!
I love Autumn weddings ... as long as its dry the idea of wrapping up a bit on your wedding day and kicking through the leaves and pine cones has always appealed!
So for this weeks 'Weekly Wedding Inspiration' I've been looking for lots of gorgeous ideas for your Autumn inspired wedding ...

I love this styled shoot by www.junoandjoy.co.uk and Pete Cox Photography ... and especially this gorgeous idea for the bride's hair ...

 

You can see the rest of this shoot at http://www.junoandjoy.co.uk/shoots/autumn-leaves-styled-shoot/

I also love these gorgeous miniature gold pumpkins found on http://intimateweddings.com ... could be an amazing DIY project for your table d├ęcor and looks beautiful with church candles.
 
 
I also love tweed on men .. so what better than an autumnal look for your groomsmen .. I found this image on www.pinterest.com
 
 
I also love Autumn flowers ... being able to mix berries, cones and feathers in with your bouquet makes it all so lovely and interesting! I love this bouquet found on http://whimsicalfloral.com
 
 
And finally I couldn't really do a post on Autumn weddings without featuring my Woodland Fairytale range which was designed specifically with this season in mind ;-)

Autumn Berry Wedding Inspiration Moodboard

On Monday I shared the 'Autumn Berry' version of my Country Garden range which I designed for a client recently and today wanted to share with you a moodboard I've put together of wedding ideas to match this colour palette and theme.
The idea of the stationery was to mix a quite rustic country feel with purples, plums, raspberries and a hint of rust orange.
I love some of the flowers I've found as inspiration below with gorgeous plum berries and blackcurrants mixed in and I desperately want to try a 'pie pop' at a Autumn wedding .. perfect if your guests are feeling the chill!

 

And just in case you didn't see the post on Monday here's the stationery I designed to go with it ...

Autumnal Country Garden Wedding Invitations

Last month I was asked by a client to design a more 'autumnal' version of my Country Garden range to go with her wedding this year which was in more 'berry and rustic' colours. I can do colour changes to any of my existing ranges for a very small fee of £25 so was really excited to see what Country Garden would look like in this colour palette!
The client ended up opting for the original Country Garden colour palette as she decided she just loved the original too much ... but I've decided to share with you the autumnal version as I really liked the results and it shows what can be done to change an existing range :)

If you would like to discuss colour and design changes to one of my existing ranges for your wedding stationery then please don't hesitate to get in touch via the contact page of the website http://knotsandkisses.co.uk

Fabulous Wedding Florists

Today I wanted to share with some of my favourites when it comes to choosing a florist for your wedding.
I adore flowers! I'm not particularly happy if I haven't got at least one vase of fresh flowers in the house somewhere .. usually in a cream jug on the dining room table ... so to contemplate a wedding without real flowers, for me, would just not be done!
So I'm a bit of junkie when it comes to catching up on what florists are doing for weddings across the country!
Here are some of my favourites ( although I have so many fabulous florists to choose from I'm bound to have forgotten someone! ) ...

The Garden Gate Flower Company - http://www.thegardengateflowercompany.co.uk

Based in Cornwall .. these guys provide beautiful seasonal flowers all grown on their farm. I love them for stunning wildflower and more deconstructed styles of bouquets.


Joanne Truby Floral Design - http://www.joannetruby.co.uk/

I met the lovely Joanne at a wedding industry do last year but have been a fan of her flowers for a while. Her website has just had an amazing new update .. showcasing off her incredibly pretty floral style.

 
 
Laura Hingston Flowers - http://www.laurahingstonflowers.com/
 
Based down here in Devon, I came across Laura's flowers at Wedfest, which I exhibited at when I first moved here. Using locally sourced flowers Laura's bouquets are truly beautiful.
 
 
 
I have long been chatting to the lovely Steph, who founded FairyNuff Flowers, on Twitter and have always adored her gorgeous wedding flowers. Incredibly pretty and summery.

Blue Dip Dye Wedding Invitations & Styled Shoot

Last week I shared with you the gorgeous 'Colourful Sprinkles' Styled Shoot that I contributed stationery to and was organised by the lovely Elle of www.inspire-hire.co.uk.
Today I've got another shoot to share which was organised and styled by Elle. This time the theme was blue dip dye and I designed some bespoke stationery specifically for the shoot.
The shoot was featured in Devon's Wed Magazine .. which is an amazing magazine ... you really should order a copy regardless of where you live as the format and photography is amazing and unlike any other wedding magazine I've ever come across! http://www.wedmagazine.co.uk/

Anyway here are some of my favourite pictures from the shoot ... how amazing is the dress!
