Warning today’s chic parisian wedding inspiration shoot will cause severe hunger pangs and sugar cravings.

There has been a lot of talk in wedding land about styled shoots but personally, like any good magazine, I love to kick back and just look at beautiful images.  Today’s chic parisian wedding feature is both delicious and lots of fun, conjured up in a bid to provide pretty dessert table ideas to you brides to be.

Anthony Gould Davies from The Fabulous Photography group joined forces with Martin Hobby and a dream team of wedding suppliers to create this mouth watering shoot.

More is more with this bridal look – intricate up do, opulent accessories and embellished gown.  Perhaps the biggest scoop of this shoot is that we get a first glimpse at the latest collection from wedding jewellery and accessory favourite Rose and Aster.

Button bouquets like this one by Beau Buttons are a great way to add a vintage twist to your wedding and also make a beautiful keepsake.

How’s this for a pretty hairstyle, dressed with swirling flower chain it is one of my faves of the year so far.

Another beautiful dress from Wilden Bride London here with ruffled bodice and soft skirt making it the perfect contemporary chic bridal statement.  I’m also loving this unusual sorbet coloured bouquet by Fearless Florals – orange, pink, green and lilac is definitely a combination I’ll be recommending to my brides.

Hair stylist and make up artist Lisa Alger gave us a tutorial for creating this extravagant up do last week (check it out here) and it is really versatile, dressed with flowers or bows.

So let’s take a closer look at the sweet treats that Lau from French Made and Sarah from Chateau Macaron slaved in their kitchens to create.

Mmmm macarons a welcome addition to any wedding dessert table in my opinion.

These cute French style patisseries in the most beautiful pastel rainbow colours would be a talking point at any wedding.  If your heart desires a chic parisian wedding look think Strawberry Tartlettes, Hand-dusted Macaron towers and gourmet Ispahans, Hand-piped rose icing, Sugar paste cameos and Religieuse Profiteroles oh my!

This macaron and meringue tower is just to die for and you know I love an alternative to the traditional white tiered wedding fruit cake.

And here is a beautiful behind the scenes video by Andrew Dobell, capturing the amazing team at work and being rather naughty too.
