I have been working hard this month, on the run up to my good friends Pip and Robs Big Day.
I was very kindly asked by the couple to help style and dress their wedding in the beautiful grounds at Burling Mannor, East Sussex, England.
Pip had a very clear idea of what she wanted and asked me to create table settings based on the theme swallows and amazons, her favorite childhood book. The tables we covered in white linen and beautiful vintage lace table cloths, topped with bespoke, handmade boxes covered in the Swallows and Amazons maps. I then dressed the boxes with hand tied bunches of flowers, a copy of the book, small boats, and ginger beer bottles which i redesigned to feature their names, and the date.
I also dressed the card table, make a door screen for the back of the stage from old doors painted in Pips chosen colours and helped dress the rest of the venue with an array of themed props and flowers.
