Goldney Hall, Bristol - Wedding Photographer - The Love Luxe Launch

Yesterday I attended the launch of the Love Luxe Blog, The Love Luxe Blog is a blog dedicated to weddings and party styling inspiration. It took place at Goldney Hall in Clifton, Bristol where we were treated to iced tea and pink lemonade, and lots of gorgeous canap├ęs from Fosters Event Catering. Inside the orangery at Goldney Hall and in the stunning grounds were lots of displays from some of the best stylists and suppliers around. I took some photos of their sets ups for your inspiration :)

I want to start though by saying, this styling is to show what you could do and not what you feel you should do. I firmly believe that anything you decide to include for your wedding should be personal to you, if you don't like lots of pretty details, don't have any, but if you do, go wild! Think outside the box! And talk to your florists, cake makers, stationary people to see what you can create together. If you don't feel confident in your abilities to produce things that accurately depict your imagination then consider hiring a stylist who can help you bring your dreams to life :)

This is for a birthday party, I'm loving the rabbit!
