Wedding Theme Inspiration

I'd like to start by apologising for not posting many dress pics or 'how to's' recently. I've been doing a lot of making and it's my policy not to put any pictures of wedding dresses or bridesmaids dresses on the blog until after the big day (I would hate to be responsible for ruining the big surprise) so i'm afraid we're just going to have to wait for those.
But hopefully this may make up for it a little bit!
Whilst we were away in Sheffield we took a visit to Yorkshire Sculpture Park which not only has some phenomenal art pieces but also a phenomenal shop, with some beautiful one off art pieces. I thought they would make beautiful Artsy Wedding gifts that would be totally unique or alternatively they were great inspiration pieces in relation to decorating a reception or themeing a wedding.

Table Centre Piece?

John Dilnot has used antique maps as a background in this beautiful box and has mounted and cut around the bird images. Both of these things are very simple but also work really well if you wanted to create a soft vintage look at your wedding reception. For example you could use old maps as a table runner and rather then flowers as a centre piece maybe try and recreate the birds on the trees. It would look so unique and could be a real talking point.

Suzie McLaughlin has created some stunningly delicate art pieces by cutting out floral and butterfly motifs from the pages of books. (She has obviously been doing it for a while so her's are extremely involved) Why not create a simple design (or borrow one and see what you can come up with. Again this could work really well as a table centre piece or laid out in the entrance to your reception.

Red Riding Hood Wedding theme?

This is less about ideas for decorations to enhance your wedding day (though you could) and more about an idea for your wedding theme. Les Contes have created some gorgeous jewellery pieces centering around fairy tales. What could be more apt for your wedding day?! If you focus on silhouettes and well placed props you could very easily recreate a fairy tale setting without going too overboard.

We're off on holiday but I promise to come back soon xkt
