styled shoot: oh starry night {christmas inspiration}

Happy happy Friday wedding lovers!!! It’s nearly Christmas!! Are you excited? I can’t wait! Today is my last post before the big day, and my last post of the year as I’m taking next week off to enjoy spending some time with my family!  I’m sure you’ll all be far to busy enjoying the festive celebrations yourself for wedding planning anyway!

This year I’m hosting my first Christmas dinner, and one of the things I’ve loved planning is our Christmas table look. As the one time of year all the family get to sit down together, it’s a great opportunity to create something special.  This year, my table is inspired by natural textures, rustic details and a touch of festive shine.

Creating this shoot was a great opportunity to work with my b.team lovelies again! With the awesome Anneli on lens duty, Liz on flowers, Lucy providing gorgeous linens and accessories and Emily creating a stunning rustic cake as a centrepiece.

Liz used succulents for their striking simplicity and gorgeous texture, displayed in bronze painted wine crates to create simple yet eye-catching arrangements, with added twine and baubles to add detail.  Each guest is treated to a seasonal gift of a succulent displayed in a rustic birch holder at their place setting, set against the finest linen from Rowen & Wren, for an added touch of luxury.

Emily’s cake takes centre stage, it’s soft buttercream icing mimicking the rustic texture of bark, surrounded by a pinecone and birch star garland, interspersed with mini succulents and silver baubles adding a touch of elegant glamour. It wouldn’t be Christmas without fairy lights, so a softly lit curtain of lights adds a pretty backdrop from which to hang your favourite festive decorations, and a welcome message for your guests.  For a final flourish, the table is scattered with birch stars, for added interest and texture.

Testament to the talent of the b.team this shoot was featured on my favourite wedding blog The Pretty Blog earlier this week!  I’m still doing a little happy dance :) What a great Christmas present!
