Last week I showed you some outdoorsy Christmas shots I styled during the summer. Here are the latest Christmas trends by Wyevale Garden Centres. But before we get to the pretty shots, it’s worth mentioning that way back in May and June a team of us worked really hard to put together a Christmas lookbook for Wyevale Garden Centres. It started off with me searching for a suitable location, one that’s able to showcase 5 different Christmas looks, plus outdoor shots and Christmas lighting, no easy task. Finally a location was secured and the shooting took place over 4 days in June. I did the planning and drawing of the shots and also the styling on set, I was assisted by the lovelyAntonia McKenzie. The super talented photographer Nato Welton, which I’ve had the privilege to have worked with before on numerous occasions, shot these lovelyimages. In my opinion, Nato is thewizard of lighting!
Fancy something different on your Christmas tree this year? Here’s a few alternative themes, still in keeping with the Christmas spirit just adding hits of colour and fun with exquisitely detailed tree decorations. I love the “Swan Lake” inspired tree below, styled up with satin ballet slippers and a frothy pink tutu.
These are shots I styled for Wyevale Garden Centres using their fabulous selection of baubles, decorations and Christmas trees.
The countdown to Christmas has begun, so it’s time to set up your own show-stopping Christmas tree. Here are a few Christmas trees dressed with a selection of white, glass, silver and green decorations and baubles. I had great fun styling and setting up these shots for the Wyevale Garden Centre shoot, way back in May. We shot five different Christmas themes and below are some of my favourite shots from the day.
When thinking of The White Company, words like elegant, stylish and chic springs to mind. Over the years they have stayed true to their style and yet every season they inspire us with even more beautiful items. I have yet still to meet the person that does not just love The White Company. Although that it’s true that I’m a self obsessed colour addict and would choose colour every time, I always find myself wondering into their stores and wishing my home could look like this. And who am I to say that grey, silver and white are not colours after all?
Below are their new items for Christmas, in store now but you have to be quick, everything is selling like hotcakes!
