Black is back!

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of South African wedding design; the creativity and resourcefulness of brides & wedding professionals alike never fails to impress me.  They are continually ahead of the curve – new trends always appear here a season before they hit the UK – and this shoot from the incredibly talented […]

The Perfect Chemistry

I love sharing pretty inspiration but every now and then something lands in my inbox which is not conventionally pretty – like today’s science-inspired shoot designed & styled by Jennifer Laura Design.  Set in an old stamp factory the vibe is more old-school-cool than urban romance, with it’s industrial backdrop and science-lab details.  It’s great […]
