Harajuku Girl Visits English Country House!!!

Harajuku-102

Well well well, the Coocouturiers have well and truly blown my mind once again! I honestly dont know where they come up with these ideas but each and every time they just knock it right out of the park!

If you are unfamiliar with their work then seriously where have you been?

The goal of the Coocouture Collective is to show how alternative themes can be made accessible and translated into the highest quality wedding styling. Over the summer we featured their Edwardian Steampunk Scientist Bride and since then they have welcomed not just one but two more Coocouturiers to their collective. Hmmm I wonder who they could be? Us of course!!! We were beyond thrilled when Gwenda asked if we would like to join the team, we have been wanting to work more on alternative type styled shoots for some time but were really struggling to find the time and manpower, so this really couldn’t have come at a better time for us. Watch this space as we have some fabulous shoots lined up for you, for now here is a look at the latest offerings from the Coocouturiers…

A Small Country Wedding Planned in Just 4 Months: Vicky & Paul

A Small English Country Garden Wedding

Woo hoo it’s Saturday and in my never ending bid to try and slow down the approach of winter I wanted to share this summery english garden wedding with you all today. Now I am not usually one for pastels but the decor in this wedding is so darn cute. What shocked me the most is that Vicky and Paul created this whole wedding in just 4 months and on a serious budget. The amazing Cake that you are about to feast your eyes on was made by the brides mum, the florals are all handpicked garden flowers and the bunting was so sewn by Vicky’s aunt. We best not forget to mention that the groom played a massive part in this fun-filled budget wedding too, creating his own DIY photobooth and card box. This is one very talented family!

Here is Vicky to tell us more…

A Locally Sourced & Handmade Renewal of Vows on a Farm – Lindsey and Jacques

Homemade Organic Renewal Of Vows 1 When Lindsey and Jacques decided to renew their vows they knew there would be no place better than to hold their blessing on the farm where they met and still live in Stoke Poges, Berkshire. They both love being outdoors and Lindsey couldn’t picture shoehorning Jacques into a smart hotel or stately home as he is a South African Boer at heart! The other advantage was that they had constant access and an on-site work force on hand with willing help from their friends and neighbours! We heart the handmade details in the ceremony and can’t get enough of the mint green suitcase seating plan! Over to Lindsey to tell you more… Homemade Organic Renewal Of Vows 2 “We wanted to get everyone involved and invested in the day and for people to have fun. People really seemed to love to help and own parts of the day. The underlying theme was a fusion of our nationalities, I tried to keep it subtle as I didn’t want it to be too gimmicky and dated I created a sort of crest from the South African Springbok and the English rose, which I used through the homemade stationary. I also had roses and protea’s (the national flower of SA) in my bouquet. The setting was obviously the English countryside, but the food was a very South African affair with the amazing Nyama boys cooking up a delicious wedding menu of springbok and boerwors starters and spit roasted pig with traditional sides. We sourced straw bales from a local farmer to help set the scene and create a chill out area. Nearly everything was locally sourced or home made.”
