William Morris Inspired Styled Wedding Shoot

I was thrilled when Catharina Eden of My Eden Bespoke asked me to create necklaces for a William Morris inspired styled wedding shoot, along with fifteen other collaborators. The necklaces were made to coordinate with Catharina's pale green dress design, so beautifully embroidered by Ashleigh Jay Embroidery. I will include links to their websites, along with the other contributors at the end of the post.

The pale green dress was embroidered with gold and green leaf motifs. The oval pendant was made using samples of the embroidery material. 

If you haven't heard of William Morris and want to learn more about this famous and prolific 19th century designer, this article from the V & A Museum is a great start. I have always found the following quote that Morris is known for, to be inspiring and I strive to live by it:
"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."

This shoot took place at Kelmscott Manor, Morris' family home in the Cotswolds, the first styled wedding photoshoot to be held there.
