Luxury wedding inspiration complete with fairy tale gowns and pastel florals
We wanted to do something different with this shoot, both in terms of styling and messaging. We wanted to show that sustainable doesn’t just mean boho and hessian, and luxury doesn’t just mean whites and golds.
The Seed Card Company provide sustainable Wedding stationery. All their inks are vegan, and the paper contains seeds - after use it can be planted to grow into wild flowers. This is an amazing way to minimise the wastage of invites. Guests can plant the invite and literally watch a couple’s love grow! Likewise, any wedding day stationery such as place cards can be planted by the couple to be enjoyed for years to come!
We wanted to inspire couples to look beyond blush pink weddings and see that using colour can still be elegant. The initial colour pallet inspiration came from unicorn princess vibes, with a vision to execute this in a sophisticated muted pastel tone. The aim was colourful but classy, whilst still being sustainable.
Every dress was made in the UK by designers who are consciously making an effort to be more sustainable in their choice of fabrics, minimisation of waste and in their workplace culture. The suits are incredibly unique and made with recycled plastic bottles. All hair and make-up products were vegan, cruelty free and sustainable.
We love this luxurious take on a sustainable wedding. It just proves that you can make eco-friendly wedding choices and your day can still look fabulous.
I wanted to be the change I wish to see and I really hope this editorial inspires couples to make more conscious decisions when planning their wedding. Being confident in the knowledge that this won’t compromise on the luxury quality they receive.
