April 1, 2021

Linsey and Allison met on Tinder, and were crazy about each other from the moment they met! When it came to planning their September wedding, they were inspired by the barn and outdoor space at Garden Gate at Haley Farm in Maine, New England. “Our vision was captivating design and lush florals,” the couple told us, “to go alongside the beauty of the property. Our love for jewel tones was also an inspiration! We loved having so much outdoor space in the lawns and the back deck. We wanted an outdoor seating area the moment we saw the back deck.”

July 1, 2018

When we hear the phrase 'boudoir shoot', there have been enough bad ones gone before to throw up connotations in the mind of something tacky, pandering to the male gaze, and overly sexualised for the wrong reasons. Today's editorial couldn't leave this further behind with its strong female subject who isn't looking for anyone's approval or attention, fresh and contemporary greenery, and a bright palette of whites, greens and pinks. And if that entire sassy black underwear range isn't in your online shopping basket by the time you're done here, we need to have words.

Folega

May 10, 2018

Sarah and Scott's September wedding was originally meant to be held completely outside in a beautiful hollow in the trees at Hirst Priory, amidst beautiful lighting and hay bails for everyone to sit on. However, thanks to the UK weather and its mischief, they had to rethink and bring the outdoors in for much of it, including the arch! But then check out those moody skies and try and tell me you don't love them. Do not fear the rain, people. It can never bring a good wedding day down.

A Celestial Meets Earthly Styled Shoot

Taken by Sarah

April 30, 2018

What's really beautiful and original about this shoot is how it has cleverly positioned lots of opposites - the hard textures of the geometric ornaments versus soft textures like the velvets, and the earthly rock crystals and smoke next to the heavens and galaxies depicted in the tablecloths. It's created a styling synergy and a very interesting dynamic. Alongside these oppositional details, there are also elements that come together, echo and complement each other, creating yet another line of interest. There's way more here than meets the eye than just pretty styling for its own sake - there are connotations and depth to be experienced and inspired by.
