A Beautiful Literary inspired wedding styled shoot for the Book Loving Couple

Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful literary inspired wedding styled shoot for the book loving couple.

Images were captured by Nicola Mackrill Photography.

When you take one of the cutest little libraries in Yorkshire, the vision of wedding creatives who don’t like anything to be contrived and add in the most gorgeous real-life couple as opposed to models, you get magic.

The idea for this collaborative shoot was to focus on the little details and was the brainchild of wedding industry friends Tabby Kerwin of Mode for…Events Director and owner of Sweet Sugar Sixpence, Claire Bush.


Tabby says of the shoot..


It’s simple, we love books, we love cute and natural and we hate to be following the trends so Claire and I were well and truly on the same page.

We wanted to simply create a set of beautiful images to show you can have what you love at your wedding and you don’t have to have the what the media has decided is cool.

Whilst we had ideas and small things that inspired us, like the bottle from Vinegar & Brown Paper, the light from The White Bulb or my collection of leather bound music books, everything for this shoot just evolved.

That’s how we think weddings should be. Unique, individual and bespoke.


Every wedding professional that was part of our small and perfect team delivered their creative genius on the idea we set out and it just worked perfectly.

The stunning bridal bouquet was from Sarah at Farm Styling and the dress  was designed for the shoot by Claire Paver Couture and set-off beautifully with a headpiece from the award winning The Bobby Pin.

We had the most fun couple who were best friends of one of my 2016 bride and grooms and they’re truly beautiful love for each and character shone through to make the images caught by the talented Nicola Mackrill perfect.

As ever, Claire’s cakes were perfect, showing arrange of styles and skills that wowed us all (and they tasted great!).

With a beautiful Suit from Owen Scott Tailors, make-up and hair styling from Carys Catherine Make-up and wonderful hand created stationery from Suzanne Oddy Design, this shoot was a joy to curate and style.
