Love LET­TERS

You and Your Wedding - - Reception Trends -

In the dig­i­tal age of in­stant mes­sages, a beau­ti­fully hand­writ­ten wed­ding morn­ing love let­ter can be an ex­tra-special ges­ture. And this sump­tu­ous shoot, with its el­e­gant cal­lig­ra­phy and stun­ning sta­tionery, shows just how ro­man­tic putting pen to paper can be on your big day. “I imag­ined a beau­ti­ful scribe on her wed­ding day writ­ing a let­ter to her true love,” says plan­ner and stylist El­iz­a­beth So­laru.

The shoot is a true cel­e­bra­tion of the writ­ten word, with cal­lig­ra­phy grac­ing ev­ery­thing from the back of a chair to the cake. “The theme is car­ried through to the cakes with hand­writ­ten edi­ble wafer paper,” says El­iz­a­beth.

“Amie Bone cre­ated a lush canopy of pure white roses, pe­onies, or­chids, del­phini­ums and hy­drangeas with no green­ery, shaped like a roof RYHU WKH WDEOH μ VKH DGGV $ PDWFKLQJ ÁRUDO UXQQHU

is the per­fect back­drop to let the gold-rimmed crock­ery shine. “White and gold is such a clas­sic com­bi­na­tion and can be used to in­stantly cre­ate a lux­u­ri­ous look. Use dif­fer­ent hues and tones to cre­ate a tex­tured and beau­ti­ful palette.”
