A NAUTICAL WEDDING INSPIRATION SHOOT

In the end of last summer, we shot this little nautical wedding inspiration spread for the Finnish Häät magazine. On a beautiful, sunny day we headed to Uusikaupunki where Michaela's in laws have their cottage on a little island.

At the Pursiseuran Paviljonki restaurant, the perfect place for a natutical wedding, we set up a lovely little table setting, arranged flowers, styled and took so many photos that it wasn't possible to fit them all into the magazine spreads.




















And yes, those are our men in the pictures - we're kind of nice that way, letting them participate in our work ;)


Big thanks to the great vendors who helped us create this shoot!

Styling, floral design & coordination: Hey Look
Photography: Michaela / Hey Look
Graphic design: Hey Look
Venue: Pursiseuran Paviljonki, Uusikaupunki
Cake: The Art of Cakes
Papers, envelopes, monogram arrow base (we oiled and painted it): Sinelli

Christmas workshop & glögi evening at our studio

Hei kaikki ihanat seuraajamme! Me olemme olleet erittäin kiireisiä tänä vuonna, emmekä ole juurikaan ehtineet postailla mitään täällä blogissa. Viime aikoina kaikki ylimääräinen aikamme on mennyt uuden sivumme, Best Day Everin, luomiseen. Kurkatkaa ihmeessä, ellette ole jo ehtineet tutustua. Näin joulun alla jaamme paljon ilmaisia printattavia ja DIY-projekteja!

Nyt kuitenkin ajattelimme ottaa vähän aikaa ja viettää hauskan illan glögin ja pienen workshopin merkeissä studiollamme Sörnaisissä! Olisi ihanaa jos pääsisit mukaan!



Jos haluat tulla juhlistamaan joulun alkua kanssamme, lähetä meille sähköpostia osoitteeseen heylook@heylook.fi. Toivottavasti pääset mukaan!

Ja niin, jos etsit jotain pienellä printattua tekstiä – sitä ei ole. Haluamme vain kutsua meille ihmisiä, joiden kanssa olemme tehneet kaikkia ihania projekteja - sekä teidät!

A little guide to fall entertaining - Set the table



With the days getting colder and darker, it's the perfect time to invite friends for a casual dinner party. No need for a big, fancy affair - just create a cozy setting with these simple ideas:

Top row from left to right:
- Herbs serve as centerpieces in this simple dinner by the Fresh Exchange
- Tie up some herb sprigs and greens and tie a handwritten name tag to it - and you have a pretty place setting! Check out the entire inspiration shoot by Kristyn Hogan and Cedarwood Weddings on SMP
- A gorgeous fall dinner shoot on Once Wed 

2nd row from left to right:
- if you're inviting more than a few people, a buffet is always a good idea for a casual evening. Especially when it's styled as nicely as this one by Luisa Brimble
- we love outdoor dinners! and this one by Scout for Kinfolk looks especially cozy.
- Buy some mini pumpkins and place them on each place setting for an extra fall harvest touch to your table. Idea from a Sunday Suppers dinner on turquoise autumn blog

3rd row from left to right:
- write your menu on a little chalkboard (the Fresh Exchange)
- beautiful simplicity: Local Milk
- leaves and vines as place setting decor spotted on Once Wed

Bottom row from left to right:
- fresh, seasonal ingredients are the best for an autumn dinner (photo via once wed)
- make centerpieces from greens and flowers picked in the nature: DIY on Once Wed
- lovely atmosphere in this Brooklyn Kinfolk dinner
