Howard was fantastic! Can’t recommend him enough for capturing the joy and wonder of our special day with a fabulous mix of informal and formal shots.

He even snapped still life in such an elegant and touching way that you’d want to eat the flowers, plants and cakes right off the print!

Huge appreciation, Howard, for being so professional whilst sensitively human 🙂

Yorkshire Shabby Chic Weddings Ideas

Yorkshire Shabby Chic Weddings Ideas 

Shabby chic wedding items are often heavily painted through the years, with many layers showing through obviously time-worn areas.

The style is imitated in faux painting using glaze or by painting then rubbing and sanding away the top coat to show the wood or base coats, known as “distressing” the finish of the furniture.

Furniture pieces that are not genuine antiques are usually selected for their resemblance to older furniture styles, and may be reproduction furniture with a distressed finish.

Elaborate furniture appliques depicting flower swags and garlands, cherubs, and other motifs may be added.

Fabrics tend to be cottons and linens, with linen being particularly popular, inspired by old French linens.

Pure whites, as well as ecrus and worn or bleached out pastel colours are favourites. Fabric is often stained with tea to give it the look of old fabric. Bleached and faded are terms often applied to the style.

Vintage floral patterns with pastel colours, cotton ticking patterns, or linen in earth tones, are all typical of shabby chic style.

Shabby chic is a term that is floated about quite a lot in the weddings world, but it is often an area that is difficult to define as it blurs the line between vintage and rustic.

Put simply, shabby chic is a gorgeous theme that incorporates a slightly worn, home-made feel into any décor for an effortlessly stylish look.

If you’re thinking of including shabby chic elements in your big day then extra wedding points to you

as one of the key wedding trends for 2017  is all about the use of weathered materials and natural elements in the décor.
