A modern moroccan styled shoot

Hi there lovelies,

Today we’re beyond excited to be sharing some stunning images from a recent shoot we put together with the super talented Philippa Sian Photography. Styled shoots like this allow suppliers to get together and go all out creatively, putting together themes and looks that (we hope) will get you drooling and fire up your imagination. They’re brilliant Pinterest fodder for when you’re planning your wedding and the looks you’re after, and for suppliers like us they’re great fun as well.
