There’s a yarn boutique in Inglewood called Stash and every time I walk by, I admire the yarn-bombed cruiser they have parked out front. I always thought it would make the greatest getaway vehicle for a bride and groom and it got me thinking about other ways yarn could be used in wedding décor. In addition to the bike, this shoot featured 3 ways yarn could be incorporated into a wedding ceremony. Real couple, Janie and Oscar, were happy to come along for the ride (so to speak).
Turns out our bride was Janie from Flowers by Janie. She wrapped the stems of the wedding bouquet and boutonnière in contrasting yarn from Stash.
Ali from Modern Pulp created a whimsical program using a “string quote” from a well-known song. The ceremony programs were yarn-stamped using a wooden block, wrapped in coarse-textured yarn.
I’ve got the world on a string, sittin’ on a rainbow,
Got the string around my finger,
What a world, what a life, I’m in love.
Lyrics by Ted Koehler
I had a screen door partition in deep turquoise and decided to create a stylized leaf using yarn from Stash. I love the pop of rich, fall colour on the wedding ceremony backdrop.
Our handsome groom Oscar, was outfitted head-to-toe by Ed Williams Menswear.
Janie made a beautiful bride in the Leanne Marshall’s Eloise gown and Clementine top from Frocks Modern. She crafted her flower crown using fall blooms and her hair and make-up were styled by Lyana Gibert of The Art of Beauty.
Thanks to everyone who brought these ideas to life.
