Knot & Pop’s founder, Susie Young, was tasked with styling a wedding using some amazing products all from notonthehighstreet.com. We spoke to her about achieving that effortless wedding style and how the day went.

It’s unusual to start with a disclaimer but here we go…

Although we are about to talk about a particular wedding style and ‘theme’ we must urge you to look to yourselves, rather than all the pretty of Pinterest, to find your inspiration and a day and style that reflects you both.

It’s easy to get lost in Pinterest, pinning endless images of wow weddings. What’s difficult is then stepping back to filter it all, process what is realistic for your budget and pin-point what really mirrors you as a couple – your loves and lives.

We are huge fans of organic arrangements and settings that have an effortless appeal to them. The Grecian inspired theme lends itself perfectly to summer weddings - think a laissez-faire approach with cascading olive leaves, weathered textures and natural finishings. Of course there’s nothing laissez-faire about it, as sometimes the most effortless look can take the most effort to do – the irony is not lost.

The story was luxed-up with a hint of metallic and a touch of sparkle, with a white-on-white sequin runner, to add a more contemporary take to the theme. Olives were placed into textured ceramic bowls, with gold food paint brushed over to add further touches of metallic.

With this being a wonderfully romantic and bohemian look the tables were dressed in plenty of candlelight – votives and tall tapered candles lined the table length, with candles staggered in heights to play to the natural and organic sensibility.

If you thinking of going Grecian, this theme also works perfectly for summer entertaining too – whether an al fresco dinner party, or sophisticated birthday soiree.

It’s about a lightness of touch and innate sense of style that will leave your guests feeling like Gods and Goddesses as they dine.
