I hand you over to the team to tell you all about themselves…

 

Who are you, and what do you do?

“We are Lisa & Matt from Olivia Samuel Wedding Stationery, we produce wedding stationery with timeless appeal.”

 

When and why did you start your Company?

“We started the business in 2003 making completely handmade wedding stationery to offer couples something a little different from the standard printed wedding invitations that were available at the time.”

“As a husband and wife team we wanted to spend more time with, and be available for, our children as they were growing up, and being self-employed gave us this opportunity.”

“Over the years we have moved away from the fully handmade designs that are so labour intensive due to costs and the demand, but we still like to have handmade elements with all our cards inserted by hand, and we add elements like ribbons and Swarovski crystals.”

 

What inspires you?

“All sorts of things really, nature, especially flowers, and pretty colours give endless inspiration but then again you can’t beat a bit of sparkle and bling.”

 

Do trends influence your work?

“Yes, to a degree you have to in order to stay in business, but we like to have a timeless appeal and there are lots of amazing designers in the wedding industry that are able to offer very ‘on trend’ designs, so we tend to stick to what we know and love which is quite simple and classic design that stand the test of time.”

 

What is your greatest achievement?

“Keeping the business going through some very rough economic times!”

“It was tempting to pack it in and go back to the day job, but we had to learn to let the business change to survive and become a new entity.”

 

What do you see as the future of your Company?

“We are going to launch a new website soon that will feature simple flat cards and will allow our customers to proof their wedding stationery online in real time, as well as adding their guest names for free.”

“This will allow for a much quicker turnaround on these designs. We are also going to be adding social stationery such as christening and party invitations as well as personalised Christmas cards.”

A gorgeous Southampton Art Gallery and Moldy Fig Wedding

Today I am excited to kick off the week with a gorgeous Southampton Art Gallery Wedding with a reception at the Moldy Fig.

Nick Rutter is an award Winning Photographer based in the South of the UK with a passion for crisp, beautiful, natural and relaxed Photography.

He is also a Drummer and lover of great music.

He says of his work “My approach to photography is pretty calm. I have a relaxed and natural style. I love vibrant colours, and a slightly matt/film finish to my images. I want the photographs to do something, to pop and not be bland.”

 

He says of the couple and their day…

 

“Ross and Jo are such a lovely quirky couple and had some awesome ideas for their unique wedding at Southampton Art Gallery and The Moldy Fig at The Concorde Club in Hampshire.”

“Jo loves the colour yellow (as you can see from their living room photos) and once the shoes were chosen, red was woven into the colour scheme too.”

“They didn’t pick a theme, but their tastes lead to outfits with quite a vintage feel.”

“They always wanted a personal wedding with a hand made touch, not a hotel do.”

“They chose the Moldy Fig for their wedding reception in Southampton next to the Concorde Club after an exceptional lunch there and they loved the idea of marrying at Southampton Art Gallery in Hampshire for their wedding ceremony as neither of them wanted a church wedding and they loved the feel of the space, the grandness and brightness.”

“On the day they also had a surprise visit from Ray Quinn, who was performing next door at the Concorde Club!”

 

I now pass over to Bride, Jo…

 

How did you meet?

“Ross and I first got to know each other on an unseasonably warm Saturday 10 years ago.”

“We normally worked in different Blockbuster stores but Ross had been sent to Harrow and we spent the day bonding over our love of films (and Star Wars) as all our customers were enjoying the sunshine.”

 

When did you get engaged?

“We were having an anniversary dinner at our favourite restaurant, The Walpole in Ealing.”

“After 8 years together and buying a house together we had discussed what we would like our wedding to look like, but I was nonetheless surprised when he popped the question.”

“We used to live around the corner from The Walpole before we relocated to Southampton and it was lovely that the first people we told about our engagement were the owners who we knew well from years of patronage.”

“We spent the rest of the weekend in our own little engagement bubble before returning home and telling family and friends.”

 

Tell us about your wedding planning journey

“We had a 2 year engagement as I knew I wanted a personal wedding with lots of handmade projects.”

“To start our planning and set our budget we wrote all of the big spend wedding categories on Post Its (Food, Flowers, Stationary etc) and discussed what was important to us and where we could save money.”

“Food came out at the top of the list as we are big foodies and wanted to serve our guests something delicious, we chose the Moldy Fig after an exceptional lunch there.”

“I suggested the Art Gallery as our wedding venue as neither of us wanted a church wedding and I loved the feel of the space; grand, bright and somewhat playful.”

 

“My bridal attendant (we may have made this title up!) Chris and I found the shoes in Selfridges shoe hall and the rest of my outfit revolved around them.”

“It became clear that they couldn’t be hidden under a full length dress but I loved tea length dresses which I could move and dance in anyways. I love my dress but I did not have ‘the one’ sensation that bridal shops try to hype.”

“The dress was beautiful and an important part of the outfit I was creating, to which I added a floofy petticoat, a marabou shrug and a Vivienne Sheriff pillbox hat which cost more than my dress!”

Ross: “I knew I wanted an outfit that was 1920’s or 30’s in style, once I found my Jefferey West shoes I too knew that my suit had to go with them.”

 

“For a long time it felt like we didn’t get very far, friends kept asking how the planning was going and I would respond that I had cake toppers, underwear and beautiful shoes!”

“Once we had booked the venues and the photographer I became a somewhat laidback bride, I figured that all the ‘big things’ had been sorted and everything else would come together.”

“Luckily I had an amazing best friend/maid of honour who would constantly ask me what was next on the to-do list and encourage me to complete tasks.”

“My maid of honour/crafting guru Becky and I undertook a plethora of handmade projects from customised hangers for our dresses to a lace pinny for me to wear whilst I ate dinner.”

“I knew early on that I wanted bunting to decorate my wedding venues and my faithful friends attended my ‘craft nights’ where they measured, cut and sewed hundreds of perfect flags.”

“Another of my passions is cake and I realised that one large wedding cake was not going to cut it, I wanted ALL of the cakes.”

“We baked a few ourselves the day before our wedding (people said we were mad!) and our fabulous friends and family offered up their signature bakes to fulfil my dream of a table groaning with homemade cakes.”

“Flowers had been something I decided I didn’t want to spend a fortune on, quality over quantity.”

“I came across Kelly who I recognised from school at the New Forest Show and we discussed her beautiful fabric flowers, I loved the idea of integrating the bunting cotton fabric and producing something that my bridesmaids could keep after the wedding.”

“My bouquet was a beautiful creation, based around my brief for seasonal flowers, a wildflower feel (as it was a bit early in the year for wildflowers) and fragrant herbs, which I find to have a soothing effect (ideal if I was a little nervous before the ceremony!)”

“We kept the centrepieces simple and effective, daffodils were seasonal and fit with the, yellow and Welsh themes, so we used them in the buttonholes and centrepieces, created by my Maid of Honour’s mum as a wedding gift.”

“We also wanted to integrate our love of movies, which is what drew us together in the first place, into our big day.”

“Whilst we have different tastes in films, we are both big fans of Disney and named our tables after our favourite Disney Classics.”

“The theme continued into our ceremony music choices, which included scores from Sleeping Beauty and Star Wars, along with La Vie En Rose by Louis Armstrong, from Wall:E whilst we signed the register.”

 

When did you get married?

“We got married 10 years and 1 day after we met.”

“Since we had become engaged whilst on an anniversary mini-break, I thought it would be lovely to be married in the same week of March (it also meant we didn’t have to remember a new anniversary date!)”

“It was the day of the eclipse which sadly we could not see due to thick cloud cover.”

“Thankfully, the weather did a complete u-turn whilst we were getting ready and it was a glorious afternoon.”

 

What was the best bit of your day?

Ross: “The bit where she said I do, anyone who says otherwise has missed the point.”

Jo: “I won’t say the cake table then…”

 

What advice would you give to other couples getting married?

“We’d pass on the advice a few recently married couples gave us; take a few minutes to stand back and soak up the party atmosphere in the evening.”

“We stood on the decking, looking in at the party inside and enjoyed a few moments together.”

“It is one day, if you are on a budget don’t be afraid to stand your ground and spend the money on what is important to you as a couple rather than things that are traditional or expected.”

“Don’t be afraid to ask for/accept offers of help, I came to this realisation quite late in the game, but friends and family solved problems I had been worrying about for weeks just by putting themselves or their skills out there for us.”

A Rainbow Geometric Wedding – Modern Twist on a beautiful Rainbow Theme

Today I am excited to share a beautiful Rainbow Geometric Wedding Theme moodboard with some styling tips and ideas for your colourpop day.

Geometric shapes like triangles, squares, kites, trapezoid, pentagon, hexagon, and paralleogram offer a fresh an modern look to an already gorgeous palette.

The influence of the Rainbow theme on your reception can be as much or as little as you wish and with there not being a set single colour you sometimes can have a wee bit more freedom. with your styling.

If you start with an ordinary pale base with your tablecovers, colour could be brought through in overlays, table runners or napkins.

Add some geometric pizazz to your place settings with shaped favour boxes, taking the look from pretty to extremely eyecatching.

Each table could use a different colour to accentuate, and if you you like chair covers each could have differing colours of sashes.

Dependant on your chair style you can alternatively hang colourful ribbons from the chair backs.

 

Floral decoration in bold shades could brighten up a paler reception background and you can just let your mind run free with colourful expression.

Add in some shaped vases or containers to creatively showcase your blooms

Candles in differing shades could be used in candelabras to blend with mixed floristry and foliage.

The flowers of the bride and her attendants, and the men’s boutonnieires could also be in differing colours.

Brightly coloured paper lanterns and tissue pom poms are both pretty and also a great empty space filler, making the plainest corner look gorgeous.

Hanging geometric shapes look breathtaking and this is a great pre wedding DIY project.

 

For wedding attire, the Bride can remain in neutral in ivory or white, with the addition of some colourful or rainbow or geometric print shoes.

Bridesmaids could be dressed in differing colours but staying with the same style of dress.

For the boys you could jazz up the look with colourful ties, cummerbands,waistcoats and socks or dependant on how relaxed/casual your Wedding is, different coloured sneakers.

Use angular lines and shapes to make colourful buttonholes pop.

 

Prior to the Event you can give your guests a sneaky peek into the vibrancy of your day by bringing in the theme through your Wedding invitations. On the day the placecards, menu’s and tableplans could be influenced too.

For your wedding cake , the geometric print looks particularly striking.

For reasonably priced favours, colourful candy such as skittles or M and M’s or jellybeans could be given in differing colours of shaped favour box.

 

The Rainbow Wedding Theme is for the brave couple but it celebrates joy, it celebrates diversity and with the geometric twist bang up to date in style.

 

Here are some of my favourite online finds:

 

Giant Hexagon Necklace by HAND OVER YOUR FAIRY CAKES – NOTHS – £50
