“Daisy: What kind of a garden do you come from?
Alice: Oh, I don’t come from any garden.
Daisy: Do you suppose she’s a wild-flower?”
– Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
I received this lovilee submission from Colleen from Lieflingkind Style that often inspires us lovilees with her free printables! The project was commissioned by Natalie Loots from NYX Photography and I just loved the end result! Natalie shared some more on the shoot and the suppliers involved.
Why the theme?
I had been fascinated by vintage time pieces for a while before deciding on a final theme and becoming inspired by Alice in Wonderland the complete shoot just started to fit together when I decided on acquiring two very modest rabbits from our local pet shop. From there on every thing fell into spot with choosing the vintage dresses made by Erika and the gorgeous hand illustrated stationary that Colleen produced. I also really like gold as a colour for weddings and incorporating it into my styled shoots, almost everything from soft to rose gold and thus it complemented our theme.
Inform us much more about the shoot and the lovilees involved?
We began generating backdrops and décor about 3 weeks in advance working with a lot of vintage furniture, china and even performing some DIY upholstering.
Colleen and I perform collectively on a lot of projects and this time she absolutely out did herself by hand-illustrating the invitations, menu’s and cake-topper with rabbits and clocks. The rabbit cake-topper was produced by utilizing a wooden rabbit cut-out that we painted gold and then put on the cake making use of a paper straw and double sided tape.
I sourced the cake locally from Baker’s Globe. As I wanted one thing minimalist, I asked for the cake to be chocolate with white dirty icing and added the lavender as decoration myself. The flowers had been all handpicked wildflowers I arranged into bouqets.
You will notice the remarkable styles by Erica Mengouchi but the jewellery supplied by Venita just rounded off everything entirely. Her style is fresh and special (and even note the tiny rabbits in one of the little girl’s ears)!
I hope every person enjoys the shoot as a lot as we did!
