I’ve something a little different, and a lot pretty to share with you this afternoon, courtesy of the team behind My Heart Wanders – who I am thrilled to be collaborating with as their blogger in residence – Cat Hepple Photography, Leafy Couture and We Love This Limited

.

I’ve lost count of how many excited little flower girls I’ve met at our Brides Up North luxury wedding exhibitions, and how many tantrums I’ve seen when they’ve been asked to take off the tiara until the wedding day… so today’s post is for those little girls.

.

You are my favourites!

.

Let’s embrace our inner princesses, and remember what excitement really feels like, as we consider the perfect styling for the prettiest of children’s tables at your wedding.

Sarah of Leafy Couture says:  For this shoot we wanted to create a really girly delicate style, to feel like you were invited to the most exclusive little tea party.

The colours we chose were delicate, sweet tones of white, lilac and pinks. The flowers included huge urns of gypsophila: clouds of delicate flowers that are really popular for weddings this year.  We chose to keep the flowers on masse only using one type in each container to keep the look neat and elegant. We used silver julep cups and clear glass containers containing tulips, ranunculus and gypsophila. We mixed melamine plates in tones of pinks and blues. I adore using tones of colours rather than being too matchy and using one shade. Here it gives a youthful, clean feel with a hint of eclectic but still elegant.

.
Layers of textures were added with lace and ribbon on the tablecloth, tulle from the gorgeous tutu and sweets such as mini eggs, marshmallows and exquisite cupcakes.

We created two main scenes on the shoot the first being a mini tea party in delicate tones with beautiful details in the cakes. Pink milk in mini bottles are evocative of childhood, memories are so important when planning your wedding so little touches like this can be great.  The next look was a cake table where we introduced a stunning cake, you could do a mini version of your wedding cake for the little ones or for a birthday party for a very special little lady. We added meringues to add to the light, fluffy feel.

The look would work for a children’s table at a wedding, to make them feel as special as the adults. It would be a perfect little set up for a little girl’s birthday too. We used special printed bunting, ribbon bows on the chairs and fabric initials to dress the chairs and tables. The chairs each had the name tags on them, I love the idea of adding them to the back of your chairs: your special place to sit.

.
The colours we chose were sweet and would translate work for a very grown up elegant affair too, subtle and delicate, evocative and dreamy.

My Heart Wanders… A Styled Bridal Shoot & Exclusive Event In Yorkshire

January 14th, 2013 | Julia Braime

So, I don’t want to get you all too excited of a Monday morning, but it appears that we are back to the action here at Brides Up North!  The big home and Brides Up North HQ office move finally took place last week and it seems that although we were keen to avoid the un-packing process and keep the pretty flowing on these pages, our internet service providers had other ideas.  We did manage to keep you going with a few inspirational shots across server lines, but our usual double daily blogging schedule was somewhat interrupted (and a lot of hair torn out in the process!).

.

Now I don’t want to be counting any chickens before they hatch – or anything of that nature, to be honest – but it appears that even if our “internet real” isn’t quite with us yet, our contingency plans look set to keep the gorgeous going over here on the wedding blog for the foreseeable future.  Hurrah to that.

After all that unintentional neglect at the hands of the media big-wigs, I thought that I better deliver something pretty special to get us back into the swing of things.  And I know a group of ladies who never fail to deliver on that front… let me hand you over to my friends and colleagues Cat, Sarah and Bex of Cat Hepple Photography, Leafy Couture and We Love This Limited, who together with some of my very favourite Yorkshire suppliers are My Heart Wanders

.

I am thrilled to have been invited to join forces My Heart Wanders as their resident in 2013, and see where this beautiful journey takes us.

But My Heart Wanders is so much more than just inspirational shoots. With each shoot we will create an event, a place for brides to visit to see the shoot brought to life and get to know the suppliers behind it. Our first one is Sunday February 24th 2013 at Hotel Du Vin Harrogate.

.

The event is going to be a really special supplier showcase with some huge names involved including Barnard and Westwood (the Royal stationer) who is just starting to move in to the mainstream wedding market, Two Birds Bridesmaid, Polly Edwards, The Dramatic Jewel Company and lots more. Brides Up North Featured Supplier The Whimsical Cake Company have just designed the Christmas grotto at Canary Wharf.

We want to host an event where brides can interact with suppliers and we are going to re-create the shoot in the gorgeous Hotel du Vin Harrogate.  Here, brides can enjoy the installation on a personal level and be really inspired. We will also be hosting The Academy, short talks from the suppliers where brides can come along, get advice and go home with a head full of ideas.
