Behind The Scenes – Spring

Every season we shoot a brand new photo for the front of our website and our press ads. Last season was all about autumn so we used red orchids, berries, raffia, a brown hessian background and our signature Bridal Survival boxes.

A few weeks ago we shot the new Spring/Summer look and we thought we might share a little of the behind the scenes action!


Luckily the action happens inside! This is the sky on the day we shot our photos, hardly spring worthy!


First stop is our local grocer for flowers! We’re looking for white and pink blooms today and the grocer always has masses of blooms in all shapes and sizes.


Our baby blue bags used for The Deluxe Bridal Emergency Kit are going to work beautifully with our Autumn brown background we bought for last season’s shoot. We start grouping flowers into short vases, The bunch of ranunculus blooms are our favourite!


The day is so gloomy we’ve had to use our whizz bang studio lights! We end up using four big bunches of flowers behind the bags, leaving plenty to look at in vases for the next few weeks!

The finished product? Check it out on our home page and see it in your favourite wedding magazines in November!

There can be something a little kitsch about butterflies, but there is something so magical about such a beautiful creature. Especially when it’s a beautiful accent on your wedding day. After scouring Etsy (what a job!) Here are our favourites for We Love Wednesday.

Wear them in your hair, pinned to your gown or as a special touch on your ring pillow or bouquet handle.
