It was so exciting to be back with the Brides magazine team working for their annual wedding extravaganza, Brides The Show. Having left to freelance last month, I returned to style a new area for 2015 called Lookbook Live, as well as host four craft workshops in the Imagination Room.
Lookbook Live brought the magazine's reception pages, ‘Big Day Lookbook’ to life. Ten pictures from past shoots (including six of mine) were dispalyed ranging in colour and theme. I then styled a tabletop beneath each one. Some with cakes, some stationery and all with gorgeous flowers and tableware!
