July was certainly a crazy month here at Whitehouse. As temperatures soared, we were delighted to see outdoor weddings being blessed with warm, cloudless days, as well as finally being sent some mind-blowing pictures from many of the photoshoots that we were a part of back at the start of 2019 (and even in 2018!) Being suddenly inundated with exquisite photos is obviously something we can’t complain about, however, we were afraid that due to this influx of material, you may have missed some of the best bits! That is why we decided to create this blog: to take you through some of our favourite pictures from the month, showcasing incredible styling, blushing brides and even some fluffy friends… Now this isn’t to say that all of these pictures were taken in July, but simple that we were lucky enough to receive them [or get to the go ahead to post them] last month. So sit back, scroll through, and enjoy the best of the best!

Let’s start big shall we! This incredible shoot at Aynhoe Park, featuring florals from Amie Bone, decided to hold nothing back when it came to decorations. Exploding florals, gold candelabras, feathered flamingos and a friendly giraffe all come together to create a disney-esque scene, all sat within this bright, vaulted venue. As well as trying to be an excessive as possible with their styling, they also chose to include the ideal of ‘love is love': showcasing how it doesn’t matter who is getting married, only that they love each other and want to commit to one another for life.

We know that the Aynhoe shoot is a hard act to follow, however we felt that this toned-down wedding could give you a little break from the rainbow explosion. Housed in a gorgeous marquee, with a canopy of twinkling fairy lights, this wedding showcased our new olive tumblers for the first time. Pairing them with subtle green florals, our detailed glassware, a neutral tablecloth and simple wooden chairs, the final effect is both rustic and modern, capturing our attention without having to try too hard.

This creative shoot had a beautifully unique idea as their premise: using absolutely no natural light, only candles and neon lights. This may beg the question, how can you create a romantic bridal shoot using no natural light? Well, this is where you will find the answer. With chic styling, subtle lighting and suave suits, we can’t help but gawp at how they took this simple idea and turned it into something exceptional.

It’s safe to say we were pretty excited to get these pictures back, especially when we saw that they had alpacas at this wedding! This gorgeous couple went above and beyond with their boho theme, using our sleek gold pieces to give their tables a little bit of extra shine. We love the open feeling that this venue created, whilst still giving us a woodland-fairytale vibe, with fairy lights and floral blooms to finish the whole look off.

This wedding had not one, but two exquisite days for us to enjoy, giving us absolute perfection on both of them. From the white piano with florals pouring out of it [I mean come on, how incredible is that] to the amazing chandeliers, we could probably say this is one of the most luxurious occasions we’ve ever seen. For day one [white] only our gold glasses were used, however we had the privilege of doing the whole table for the second day [blue].

For our final highlight, we wanted to mix it up and show you this amazing Cuban-style shoot, using delicate flowers, contrasting colours and some of our most unique pieces to give us an imaginative and tropical set up. We love how the worn blue of the table matches the opaque blue of the walls, with every other colour imaginable in between. We think the reason we were so drawn to this shoot was because it mixed both casual aspects with that of luxurious excess, making us wish we were somewhere much warmer than Manchester right now…
