03/04/2014 |

You Mean The World To Me


Bright chevron prints make a wonderfully bold design feature at a wedding and today’s lovely shoot shows how to use snazzy chevron patterns to make a stylish statement.


The cheerful cherry and mint tones would work perfectly against the bright skies of a destination wedding or add lively splashes of colour to a UK day.

Lindsay Docherty Photography:

“Everyone looks forward to the cake at a wedding, especially the children. That’s why this darling ring bearer is hanging around! We styled this photo shoot with a luscious dessert table as the highlight. Using chevron, coral, and mint as our theme- we created a delicious dessert table, friendly welcome station, and sparkling beverage center, using gorgeous dahlias, roses, hypericum berries and celosia to create an abundance of blooms in coral tones that made the settings pop.”

Who can resist the lure of smooth, shiny, silky ribbons? They add all kinds of pretty to everything they touch – including weddings!

Decorating with ribbon can be a cost effective and simple way to add colour and impact to your big day as well as being light in weight, which makes them ideal to take abroad to beautify a destination wedding venue.


Pretty, whimsical, festival, colourful, cheerful, bright and beautiful – romantic ribbon details work wonders as an awe inspiring ceremony backdrop, to delicately adorn chair backs and table runners, to create a hanging table plan, to add something special to a bouquet or even to be entwined into a bridal up-do.


Don’t forget they are easy to add to wedding stationery, they can be tied neatly around table napkins and wound wonderfully around a wedding cake, or used to hang wedding day pretty in the trees at your venue too.

Displaying photographs at your wedding reception is a simple, cost effective way to add personality and a little extra-personal touch. 

If you and your partner have known each other for a long time, show your story through the years in pictures. Ensure you get the cringe-worthy old photos out – your guests will love seeing you back in the day as youngsters. 

A cute idea is to display photos of you and your partner as babies and children – this will get all your aunts cooing! This can be an especially nice touch if you both have siblings, as you can use photos with your brothers and sisters in too, showing the two families which will be uniting on your wedding day.

Display photographs of your parents and your grandparents on their wedding day; a lovely way to celebrate the successful marriages which have come before yours and a lovely excuse for your parents to dig out and look through their old photos and wedding album.

Pay tribute to lost loved ones on your wedding day with a display of their photos.

All of these ideas are also a great way to decorate a hen party, baby shower or a special birthday.

I’ve got the world on a string

Photographs are very light to pack if you’re jetting off for a destination wedding. Simply buy sweet little pegs and string like the ones shown below from stores such as John Lewis or Paperchase and string them up at your reception venue. Be careful where you hang pictures if you are getting married abroad – bright sunlight can damage your photographs.
