Bunting

1 Jun

Bunting is very traditional, and many of you may be thinking ‘oh no!’, but, believe me, it can look gorgeous and works so well with a handmade wedding theme.

Bunting has been transformed into something kinda kitsch, and is something you can easily make yourself. Or, even better, enlist the help of someone else! If you don’t have the time/energy/patience/sewing skills (delete as appropriate) there are people out there to help! Head on over to Etsy and grab a handmade masterpiece. Here are my top picks:

* JUST MARRIED Vintage Pennant Banner on Kraft Paper by PurplePeonyCouture

By the looks of things I think the item is listed as sold, but get in touch with the designer/maker and they might be able to rustle something up for you

* SAMPLE SALE . Love Sweet Love Papel Picado Banners by aymujer

£14.42 for a banner with 9 flags. Beautiful, intricate and delicate. It reminds me of Rob Ryan’s work.

* MR & MRS Glittered Burlap Banner with Tattoos by funkyshique

£17.55 and measures 4.5 feet. The natural hessian is beautiful and I think would work well for a rustic, country-style wedding.

£15.05 for bunting stretching approximately 6 feet. Very light and bright, with a distinct handcrafted appeal.

Designer Spotlight on Johanna Johnson

Johanna Johnson is an Australian bridalwear designer, who has a penchant for designing beautiful dresses inspired by the 1930s, channelling old school glamour. Every dress is handcrafted in Sydney, Australia, using the finest fabrics and trims available. Every piece is created as an heirloom which can be passed down through generations. I think the fabulous dresses already look like timeless treasures which have been cherished over many decades, she manages to capture the essence of Art Deco opulence so beautifully.
