In contrast to this morning's colourful celebration, this afternoon I'm focusing on a much simpler colour palette to whet your wedding planning appetite. There something so pure and elegant about these images submitted by Glasgow based fine art wedding photographers Craig & Eva Sanders on behalf of wedding planner Louise Macpherson.
I genuinely love the Glasgow Wedding Collective – I've not only featured the work of many of their members many times on Love My Dress, earlier this month, I exhibited my book at The Glasgow Wedding Collective wedding fair – I loved being a part of their fabulous gang for the day and sold a stack of books to my readers – it really was a super cool wedding event, by far one of the best, most vibrant, creative, fun and totally on trend style fair events I've ever been to (and that as a result, I plan on attending again in the future).

Below, Louise Macpherson tells us a little more about these images, how they came about and why they were created…
'Our 'white on white' shoot brought together some of The Glasgow Wedding Collective's
finest, along with other local suppliers, on what ended up being one of
the hottest summer days – the images look serene, despite the crazy heat of the day.'
'The home of the The Glasgow Wedding Collective's Handpicked Fair, The Lighthouse,
is a Glasgow hub for art and design but is also available for weddings.
It offers couples a fantastic mix of industrial loft style with a
modern twist, and was the perfect backdrop for our White on White
have been a key fashion trend over the summer, and although it's a
traditional wedding colour, i'ts more often used as an accent colour.
wanted to show how white can be pale and interesting – it's a perfect
tone to bring in lots of texture, and mix up modern and vintage styles.'
'With white as the lead colour, texture and shape become the star
features. We used a mix of ceramics and white glass, along with
stronger textures like lace and matte sequins. Rose and gold were our
accent colours; we used these to bring in strong geometric shapes to
contrast with the softer style of the dresses.'
'I love a dessert table so for me this was a central part of the
shoot. This is a really easy look to achieve; using white ceramic plates
and bowls to display the desserts, all set on a coloured tablecloth to
make the white pop. Here we used a gorgeous rose gold matte sequin
tablecloth, again giving us a great texture contrast next to the
Pure and elegant.
