White Magazine Styling Feature

Our latest styling work has been featured in White Magazine which came out on Monday!

I created this styled theme gallery based on the styling trend "ruffles & ripples".  With the combination of some amazingly talented local wedding vendors, we put together this shoot as inspiration for those who are planning their wedding and are after a whimsey, sophisticated yet playful look.

"Scalloped edges on a dinner plate or soft intricate fondant folds on a wedding cake can take simple design to heights of resplendence.  

Ripples, ruffles and delicate fronds make charming trims that introduce elements of grace & grandeur.  Moderation is crucial; the effectiveness is based on minimal representations in both decor and apparel.

An unpretentious palette complements ruffles as do plain lines and clean design.  Think white or pastels for florals, fabrics and place settings.  Let divine undulations take the lead and incite splendour."
