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).
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.
