Spring into Wedding Season

Spring/Summer Wedding Inspiration

We hope you enjoy the first of a series of blog posts written by our very own Velveteers. Kicking off with…

The return of the Quirk… Words from our very own in-house wedding photographer, Verity.

Hide the Nespresso pods and all things pretty… I’m back in the building people.

After 5 years away working on my wedding photography business, I have decided to come back to my Velvet family part-time — I simply couldn’t stay away any longer! I can tell you one thing, after flying solo for so long in a cold studio, it’s fabulous to be in a team environment again. Though I’m pretty sure they’re bored of my constant chatting already, I’ll be keeping myself warm over these winter months with a great team of colleagues and friends who work hard and play hard, too.

A whole host of fab new venues have opened up and we are collaborating with a lot of new clients since I left which is really exciting and I can’t wait to meet all you lovely people! Also, I’m looking forward to getting more involved this time round with Velvet Entertainment, with my production hat on for all things sound, lighting and entertainment!

Anyone who knows me will be well aware of my four favourite things: weddings, red lipstick, my family and a well-made G&T. So, naturally, as soon as I came back I threw myself into weddings with the Velvet Living team. Getting involved with showcases, site visits and mood boards galore. I mean… you’d think I would have seen enough through my lens but oh no, not me.

For our final wedding look — Spring/Summer — we were inspired by 2018’s design trends. We’re thinking rustic woods, crisp cottons, pastel colours and pineapples! Our Zinc top rustic collectionWhite rattan and new Sahara range is a perfect match. I am equally obsessed with making a statement with accessories as I am with colourful ‘power’ jackets, so we’ve added new cushions to our collection to compliment this look along with our Tea lights and LED festoon lights.
