21 Ideas For Something Borrowed Something Blue

Creating a theme

We opted for a powdery blue for the main focus of the shoot and we built the rest of the colour references around this pretty shade. White and peach were selected as the complementary colours, and because Houchins has so much green space, the lovely Rosie from A Vintage Wedding used an abundance of greenery to tie in the florals with the natural environment.

Tiger, our model, was beautifully styled by Victoria Bradfield and Original Button; relaxed, natural make up was complemented by loose milk-braids which were pinned at the neck. Tiger’s hair featured a beautiful slide by Marolsha and later in the shoot, a greenery wreath and loose flowers. Dress designer Naomi Neoh kindly lent ‘Gwen’ with its matching jacket, and shoes were provided by Emmy London.

Three amazing companies made up the hire team, with styling led by Laura Celiz from Rock The Day; who kindly brought her amazing collection of vintage Babycham glasses. The imposing macrame arch and giant love letters were provided by the lovely team at Vintage Garden Weddings, and Anthology Vintage Hire supplied candlesticks galore! A table runner by Kate Cullen lifted the blue of the tablecloth, and silks from Ollie’s Studio complemented the styled areas and bouquet.
