With wedding season coming into full swing, online retailer Notonthehighstreet.com put on a fabulous showcase of their wedding products for journalists and bloggers to check out. Held at Clifton Nurseries, a hidden gem in the heart of Little Venice, the team had worked alongside wedding stylists, Knot & Pop, to decorate the venue with this year’s hottest wedding trends. The tables were beautifully styled to reflect each trend; rustic romance, pretty pastels, bold and bright, and chic and modern (including hints of copper and marble).
It was wonderful to see a wide selection of the products that Notonthehighstreet.com have to offer for the wedding market; everything from stationery to favours, jewellery to venue decorations…it really is a one-stop-shop for any bride to be! The day kicked off with a stamping workshop, hosted by Notonthehighstreet seller Little Stamp Company. The company makes all sorts of stamps, including a huge range of wedding designs so couples can customise and make their own wedding stationery and create their own style to continue through their designs; from save the dates right up to the place settings. You can even have one large design made up as a single stamp in A5 size to save time. We had lots of fun testing out the stamps and getting messy with the inks and think it’s a brilliant idea for any budget-savvy brides.
Next we had a whistle-stop tour to learn the art of brush lettering, with Notonthehighstreet.com seller The Lovely Drawer. Having watched our tutor, the lovely Teri, demonstrating the various techniques, we got stuck in and followed a handy guide to practise each letter. We soon learnt that it certainly isn’t as easy as it looks! Armed with an ink pot and paintbrush, we were sent away to carry on practising and developing our own styles to create anything from personalised wedding stationery to typographic prints to hang around the home.
Our third and final workshop of the day was hosted by Notonthehighstreet.com seller Gin Tales. We eagerly made our own cocktails following steps and using the flavoured gins made by Gin Tales (lavender was a particular favourite of ours!) which you can buy as miniature wedding favour bottles or larger bottles to stock the bar.
We were also lucky enough to have a guest talk from renowned bridal designer, Kate Halfpenny of Halfpenny London. She showcased a range of her newest designs to hit the bridal catwalks and teamed each dress with accessories from Notonthehighstreet.com to complete the look. Jewellery, hairpieces, clutch bags and lots more are all available to buy through the online retailer and can add the perfect finishing touches to your look, without breaking the bank.
So if you’re tying the knot this summer, head over to Notonthehighstreet.com’s wedding section to browse their ranges and pull together your perfect look from what their talented sellers have to offer.
