Georgian Monogram Napkins in a beautiful Georgian inspired wedding tablescape. We embroidered the happy couples initials in a soft blue to compliment the wedding palette. We offer 25 standard embroidery colours, but if none of these shades are suitable for your tablescape, we have over 400 embroidery threads in stock to find your perfect colour. Our Georgian Monogram Napkins looked stunning in the traditional venue of Prior Park College, and the colour of the embroidery match the decor beautifully.
Styling – Lauren Alexander Weddings, Keeping it Vintage Devon
“As well as the coordinator I also took on the role as stylist. Looking into the world of Austen and the Georgian period, I wanted to bring to life elements that I had researched through the fabric, colours and the intimacy of a smaller Georgian traditional wedding, but bring it into a world that a modern couple would also enjoy. Fabric was a large impact upon this, as was the importance of candlelight to create a romantic and luxurious atmosphere. I loved the Georgian Monogram Napkins that The Embroidered Napkin Company provided. ”
Photography – Jennifer Jane Photography
“I was so excited to work with our photographer on this shoot! The shots were captured by Jennifer Jane Photography, based in Devon. Her style was excellent for the shoot because her photos are light, airy and give a true romance to the atmosphere. With a huge number of suppliers products to capture, she did an excellent job in making sure their work was captured! Jennifer kindly brought along her husband as our wonderful groom who really played the Mr Darcy character perfectly.”
Flowers – Jasper and Quinn
“During the Georgian period, the fragrance and symbolism of the flowers for a wedding was as important, if not more important, than aesthetics. Brides would have florals comprised of herbs and seasonal blooms, collected from gardens and meadows. For this shoot, seasonal blooms were used throughout all pieces and heavily scented blooms such as lilacs and garden roses were included, as well as dill (the herb of lust) which would have been eaten by both the bride and the groom. Symbolism was included where possible – roses symbolised love, white lilacs symbolised innocence and purity, trailing ivy symbolised fidelity and delphiniums symbolised an open heart and ardent attachment.”
Cakes – Dainty Bakes
“Megan is a one of a kind baker, not only does she create beautiful and delicious cakes but she also considers and listens to the brief she is given, taken it to an even higher level. Within this shoot we researched what was seen at a Georgian wedding. A traditional, iced fruit cake was accompanied with a modern tiered sponge cake, amongst a selection of classic iced ginger biscuits, shortbread and macarons. The use of pressed and crystallised seasonal edible flowers brought a Regency pastime and sweet confection into modern day cake decoration. The floral theme continued into the flavour combinations, with the incorporation of popular Regency flavours including rose, lavender and orange blossom.”
Stationery – Ink Flower Press
“Pride and Prejudice is one of those books I keep on going back to, so I was absolutely thrilled Lauren invited me to be a part of this project. Correspondence runs throughout the book, from hastily scribbled notes to long, heartfelt letters, so it seemed fitting to create invitation suite around the concept of love letters. The finished suite includes a quote from Mr Darcy, printed in a beautiful calligraphic script on gorgeous cotton paper. To lend an air of literary elegance to the invitation itself, I chose a book font authentic to the Regency period to complement the script. A delicate ivy illustration printed on vellum finishes the suite – the language of flowers was well understood at the Austen was writing, so the significance of ivy for fidelity would not have been lost.”
