estella and pip (+ styled shoot)

grey wedding inspiration board

The story of Estella and Pip in Great Expectations is definitely one of my favorites and creating inspiration boards from my favorite books is how this blog got started. The entire story evokes a mysteriously romantic ‘cloudy skies’ sort of mood in me and it has romantic elements that just beg to be incorporated into a wedding theme. This styled shoot by Ginny Branch and Heidi of Our Labor of Love is just the ticket. It effortlessly combines the everlasting nature of Pip’s love for Estella, the shabby glamour of Mrs. Havisham’s estate, and the beauty of a wedding. Plus, the gold spray painted baby’s breath in the bride’s hair and the unique paper table runner are must-sees!
