A trend we have seen floating around the wedding blogs lately is photographing the bottom half of people in the wedding party. This may sound unusual however, photographer Julia Archibald has absolutely nailed it! This photo of mix and match bridesmaid dresses and flowers is one of the most beautiful wedding photos we've ever seen. We also love the casual snap of the gents legs. Find all the wedding photos from this stunning wedding on Julia's website here.
Next trend is to create a jaw dropping back drop to use for photos. We have been seeing images with paper pom poms, amazing floral installations and a combo of flowers and an abstract canvas like the photo above. Find some more ideas on the Green Wedding Shoes blog here.
Also trending (much to our joy) is COLOUR! And lots of it! One of our favourite photographers Lara Hotz, photographed this stunning wedding for Hello May magazine and it is full of happiness and colour.
Another awesome trend is dessert tables! One of of favourite wedding blogs Simply Peachy has a whole pin board dedicated to them on pinterest, check it out here. I think any guest would be super happy to be greeted with a table full of sweet treats!
We love floral head pieces and they are such a great alternative to veils, if veils just aren't your thing. Another favourite wedding blog of ours is Nouba and they recently did a great piece on make up artist Erin Maie Latkovik (find it here). The makeup is stunning, however we couldn't help but fall in love with the above headpiece! Check out Nouba's pinboard on headpieces for more inspiration here.
Don't forget we have a great Wedding Registry service here at Jumbled. You can find some more info here or email firstname.lastname@example.org to start a coversation.

Yellow is the colour of happiness. It's sunshine, warmth, love and its bright! Chin up buttercup, its time to put some yellow in your home. Be inspired by your surrounds, imagine daffodils, lemon tart, canola fields and sunny days at the beach. Enjoy!

Green is probably my favourite colour (just quietly)! It is the colour of nature, its fresh and it is a little bit risky! Especially in Interiors. Be brave, it can seem daunting but it will make your space seem alive, cozy and eye catching. Enjoy!

Christmas may be over, but that does not mean we have to stop injecting sparkle into our homes! I love the silly season and one of my favourite things about it is the fairy lights and unashamable amount of glitter floating around. I have been searching for some non-christmas sparkle inspiration and here are my top picks. Enjoy!

If you have been contemplating painting a wall in your house a dark colour tone, then you have come to the right place. We have sourced some fabulous inspiration to give you courage to take the plunge. I am sure you have heard the old cat call 'dark walls create confined spaces' but this is simply not true... (at least not all the time!)
Dark walls work perfectly with wooden floors or an organic natural carpet or rug. And can be easily made to feel bright with artwork, maps and wall hangings. If the painted walls are in the same room as large windows or exposed brick walls you can easily create a feeling of the industrial style.
Adding lightness and colour to a dark wall is the key to making the most of the darker tones. White or colour can sometimes become toned down when placed on white walls, however when they appear on dark walls they instantly become highlighted and their impact is much more dominant.
Yellow and natural wooden tones work so well here with the dark wall. The mix of colours is ironically bright and warm.
In the bedroom a dark wall can create a dramatic and intense feature when combined with light bedding and colourful artwork
You can really make the most of a mixed media and multi frame wall when they are combined with a dark wall. Mix and match frames, colours and textures to get this style to work.

For our final part of the blog post, part three, we talk about soft furnishings, lighting, flowers and art.
Lighting adds mood. It is the second most transformative element in a home. Think table lamps, candle lights and chandeliers. Shop lighting here.
Flowers... Oh we love them! Abigail is a fan of real and faux flowers. She suggests never to show the stems as they are boring. Have the flowers toppling over the vase. We have some flowers available online here.
Art injects personality into a room. It is also a perfect conversation starter. We love grouping pieces into a culstered fashion like Lucy did in The Design Files house. Start collecting some new pieces of art here.
