Following the pandemic and the temporary banning of weddings, 2021 is set to be the biggest year for weddings on record! Following lots of postponements (and newly engaged couples not wanting to risk an Autumn/ winter date in 2020), us suppliers are seeing a huge demand for months and dates that are usually the last to go.
While lots of you are keeping the details the same, others that have had to change seasons have looked into different colour palettes, details... even supplier changes in line with what's available. Wild has seen a huge increase in demand for Hand Painted Jackets as more couples snatch autumn/ fall dates, and a6 table plan cards (more flexible than committing to a wooden seating plan that would be harder to amend).
I'll just add a quick note here that I don't create your wedding stationery until your final balance is settled 8-12 weeks, which is in line with venues and how much notice they need for final meal and dietary requirements - but you can read all about wild's process here).
On the back of this little mind blab, this morning I'm bringing you 3 unique looks to inspire your wedding planning. All looks include prop hire and styling from Two Eight One wedding design, a Leicester based wedding business with the most INSANE prop closet for you to peruse. You can also hire George to fully style your wedding. She works with a huge range of themes (as you'll see below), but at the centre of her styling is a love for re-loved vintage items, lots of texture, and statement pieces.
Florals are by the gorgeous Soph from Gigil & Bloom. Gigil is a Southwell based florist specialising in wedding design and next-level floral installations and an artisan florist all at once, with heaps of homeware and blooms to wow house-guests. Sophie loves to wow couples with unique designs, and can accommodate a range of wedding styles: from delicate bud vase collections to fully realised centrepieces and beyond... she is your girl! and it was so good to work with this team again. (You can check out our last collaboration here - As featured on Festival Brides).
and last but not least... I am so genuinely thrilled to have finally been able to work with Gina Fernandez Photography. Gina is such a sweet heart, and I can't recommend her enough to couples looking for a photographer to share their day. We had the most relaxed, but fun afternoon. Joking about nonsense in between shots and working so well together as a team. Gina was proactive, getting into all sorts of positions to get the best snaps yet blending into the background allowing the day to unwind naturally (which is exactly what you want from a wedding photographer). She has the most infectious smile and is a delight to be around. I'm sure this won't be the last time I rope her into a creative shoot... and that's before I've even shown you the dreamy images!
Dive into this shoot and enjoy. I can't wait to see what you think. (Why not tag me in your favourite one over on Instagram once you've done)?
Look 1: Modern boho
Featuring table numbers and place name cards in matte oat card stock.
Full range of table stationery available in matching card stocks, from calligraphy place name cards to seating plan cards. A fab idea for those worried about last minute seating plan or guestlist changes.
featured: a4 wooden wedding sign in blush and gold.
Featured: Regular wooden welcome sign (minimalist) in blush and gold.
Look 2: Minimalist monochrome
Featuring bespoke on-site calligraphy, available UK wide.

Still live for this design, inspired by my very own wedding bouquet. You can have a nosey at our wedding here.
Look 3: life's a beach.
Featuring the 2 in 1 welcome sign + order of the day in light blue
I couldn't resist doing two place name card looks for this palette. These are 100% recycled place cards made using cotton t shirts. This paper has the dreamiest texture and looks great as a stand alone feature or nestled amongst your cutlery.
and last but not least, my favourite: a dreamy a4 wooden quote in light blue. Fully customisable to suit your colour palette and nostalgic tendencies. Hehe.
Thank you so much for joining me + diving into this blog. I live for styled inspiration shoots and really use them to bring all the ideas in my head to life. If you're considering wild as your wedding calligrapher, thank you! You can find out how to work with me here, and explore lots of other inspiration shoots using the tabs below.
Special shout out to Ruby J, our stunning model - who is unable to work at the moment due to pandemic restrictions so painted her own face, crashed our shoot, and had us all howling all day. Ruby is a very talented Nottinghamshire based MUA who I couldn't recommend more if you're yet to secure your wedding MUA. She also runs make up lessons and 1:1s for those wanting to DIY it.
Congratulations on your news! and enjoy the buzz of planning. I know I miss it a looooot.
