Copper & Amethyst Shoot with Sutherland Kovach

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of styling a shoot with Hannah & Jasmine from Sutherland Kovach and Judit from Artisan Cakes, which recently featured on Style Me Pretty. The inspiration came from this board that I did some time ago, and really it was all about the gorgeous combination of the rich copper tones, with the pretty amethyst and lilac shades. Rather than the usual candy table I wanted to do something a little more organic and healthy and inspired by the stalls at farmers markets I filled burlap sacks with different nuts and dried fruits. Of course you still need to satisfy the sweet tooth to a point so it was interspersed with Judit's lovely sweet treats and the jaw-droppingly beautiful ruffle cake that she created for the shoot. It's actually quite a cost effective way to do it as well... bulk nuts and fruits are quite a lot cheaper than filling a whole table with candy and desserts!
I used one of my new designs for the stationery suite and as a little something different with the save-the-date invitations, Judit made it into a cookie!! Genius! Now tell me you wouldn't be a happy camper receiving an invite like that through the post? Our gorgeous model Je t'aime wore a beautiful lilac ruffle dress from Yvonne Bennetti, and the poor thing froze in the chilly winter air but it was worth it to get these stunning pics! Sutherland Kovach worked their magic once again, I was thrilled with how they captured the day.

Kate this is so incredible. The photography is fresh, very spot on. I'm dying over the use of copper, you don't see that a lot in photos!!
