I go all doe-eyed for anything that falls into that Parisian/Marie Antoinette/baroque/rococo kind of feel. And so I was rather taken with this styled bridal shoot from Sophie at SC Event Styling. There are all the elements I love: the golds and whites in the palette, with a dash of pink; the lavish cakes and sweet bites; and, of course, the drama of the dresses.
The Story of The Shoot from Sophie
What’s not to love about this wedding?! There is so much creativity in the details from Emily and Mitch, and also from their guests who were asked to RSVP in an offbeat way – cue many nods to Back to the Future, yay! And have you seen the cake?? And the DIY brooch bouquet, not to mention the butterfly and peacock motifs. Just so much colour. I love how this wedding is genuinely unique, all their own, a total colour factory, and looks like an utter blast.

Emily told me a a bit about how it all came about…
“We are passionate about being creative, and we love to do things differently! We are huge fans of the subscription box trend that seems to have taken the world by storm this year, and we were thinking of ways this could apply to brides. Wedding planning can be extremely stressful, so we were thinking about how nice it would be to have a box of wedding goodies posted through your letterbox each month. Not only is it a sweet treat for all the hard work you have put into a planning your wedding, but would also be a great way to introduce you to new suppliers that you might not have necessarily been aware of in the first place, as well having the chance to get crafty and learn a new skill that you could apply to your wedding day.
“And so BB Crafty Club was born, and we cannot wait for you to join the club! Wedding planning never looked so fun!”
You can subscribe to the fabulousness here. And remember to hurry – these are limited editions!
These beauties caught my eye in a big way. Fun and alternative bride-to-be, maid of honour, bridesmaid and wifey apparel with a rock ‘n’ roll heart. Something refreshingly different for your hen/bachelorette party and beyond! And husbands are included, too!
The story behind the clothing
She Riot is side-project of Anne Lindeman from the brilliant alternative wedding blog, Clever Wedding Ideas, and her husband, Derek. Anne explains,
“She Riot is a rock inspired, independent clothing line created for bachelorette parties, brides-to-be and newlyweds. The idea came to me in my twenties when I absolutely dreaded the idea of being a bachelorette party clone whose only option was to wear a cheap, hot pink bedazzled tee reading a corny, cliché pun. While I loved the idea of being part of a bride tribe, I always wanted to stay to true to who I was, but stylistically on my own terms.
“With a growing indie wedding audience from my blog and marriage to a successful screen printer, it was essentially a no-brainer for Derek and me to partner up and transform my idea of an edgy wedding apparel line for indie brides into a reality. Following Derek’s Top Rope Tuesday business model, all shirts are made by us (and by hand) upon ordering and handled from start to finish in-house. That means when you have a question, problem or want to give some us feedback, chances are Derek or I will be handling it. Even my teenage daughter Deanna is lending a helping hand, so you can say that this business is truly a family affair!”
What makes a girl She Riot?
“She Riot ditches the wedding party clone persona and encourages bride tribe girl power without the sacrifice of individuality. A She Riot girl has edge, she has style and above all she is ready to party! AND she isn’t afraid to rock a sexy heel with a killer shade of red lipstick. She’s hardcore, she’s badass, she’s beautiful – she’s She Riot!”
