These two gorgeous brides are OWNING these wedding separates by Recommended Supplier, Paper To Lace. The sheer puff sleeves, back bow detail (you know how much we love a wedding bow) and hand painted flowers by Bee Davies are giving us ethereal cottagecore vibes. Then paired with the mustard, pink and citrus colour scheme, this is modern minimalism with a hint of 70s retro.

These unique, customised hand painted wedding separates match the fresh flowers.

We wanted to show the versatility of wearing separates for your wedding outfit, and how customisation is a great way to express your personality and style. It's your day, do it your way.

We wanted to highlight the collaboration with Bee Davies who painted our wedding separates in her iconic style. Taking inspiration from the flowers used for the shoot to bring the two elements together. We love the idea that a bride would customise her outfit in this way. Bringing in elements of her own to perfectly reflect her style and personality. The flowers were the grounding element for the whole shoot. We kept referring back to them with the painting, make-up, hair and tablescaping. They helped drive the colour scheme as well as the sculptural arrangements.


Both models wore The Cirrus Top and Oslo Skirt combination from Paper to Lace. It was important for us to showcase the same outfit on two very different models, who both looked equally fabulous. Plus, who doesn't want pockets on their wedding outfit? Powder Blue Artistry created the make-up looks. Drawing from the metallics in the painting, she used a silvery gold eyeliner for one look, and a peachy/coral similar to the flowers on the other. Love Hair by Lou used some of the flowers in the model's hair, giving them a fresh yet ethereal vibe.

Wedding separates are so versatile, and can be altered to wear long after your big day.

We used Sand Studio, East London as a blank canvas to create our own story around. Tichea, from Carmela Weddings installed different spaces to each tell a different part of the story. The blousy florals by Boom Blooms were offset with geometric elements to keep it modern and fresh.
