These images were sent in by our friend and stylist/planner, the incredible Penelope Cullen of Tigerlily weddings. Penny gathered a team of talented wedding suppliers together to produce a series of looks for the fashion forward, style conscious bride. The accessories by DecoLove and fashion supplied by Mirror Mirror Bridal and Morgan Davies Bridal are out of this world – I just adore Penny’s vision.

Photography is by London based wedding photographer Voyteck Photography and bridal beauty by expert wedding stylists, Sylwia Kunysz Makeup and Viktoria S. Toth Bridal.

“I have always been inspired by the work of Karolina Pytlakowska of Decolove – I first met her via Instagram in 2018 and feel in love with her sensitive and romantic designs. Her latest collection is so delicate, ethereal and eye-catching and her bridal earrings and headdresses are made of various silk and some decorated with opals symbolising happiness, trust and faith all what marriages are made of.”

“So the vision of our shoot was to create a marriage of fashion with exceptional accessories to inspire brides in the process of their own wedding look creation. Within our four bridal fashion looks we designed for the shoot we wanted them to feel directional, with a slight shimmer and softness to the bride who wants to be beautifully adorned.”

“These accessories gave me the perfect balance for the embellishment of each look for the fashion concise bride.”

“DecoLove’s designer, Karolina Pytlakowska observes the world closely and loves small things and details, an intricate plant, interesting people on the street, a well curated photo or video creation.”

“Freshly cut flowers, niche perfume, Hayao Miyazaki, Marie Antoinette, PJ Harvey and Jack White are key ingredients to her universe.”

“They all give her a sense of happiness which she translates into Decolove, known for attention to detail, and fairy tale like accessories. She dreams for all of her creations to become family heirlooms one day.”

“Karolina has been passionate about fabrics since she can remember, most of her childhood friends are artists, her sensitivity formed around them.”

“She chose to pursue a more practical career at first, but then suddenly in her thirties, she took a bold step and created her design studio.”

“Starting small, she manufactured headbands, brooches, bow ties for men, all done by hand. Friends started purchasing her designs as gifts to their loved ones, then came orders from celebrities and show business members, spectacular stage costumes mostly.”
