You may have guessed by now that the Shabby Chic Bride likes to do things a little differently. That’s why it’s always fun to stumble upon a quirky and unique wedding business.
So check out Moll and Mostin. Perfect for the bride that’s allergic to flowers, their gorgeous wedding products encapsulate everything that’s vintage and unconventional.
I’m also a bit in love with how Moll and Mostin came about. The lovely Lucy, who founded the company explains: ” Moll and Mostin was inspired by a love of paper and vintage images, and a serious flea market, antiques market, secondhand shop and car boot habit. I started it in my bedroom, with a one off run of twenty cards, and a quick trip along Brick Lane to find a shop to stock them. Now I am manning market stalls and supplying different shops in London, websites and other small creative businesses, working from a studio space somewhere between St Pancras and Camden.”
“Since starting to make cards, I have been looking for ways of using the beautiful vintage paper I had in a more creative way, and using the qualities of the paper as well as the images. This is when I started making paper roses, and this has led me to work on a specific wedding range – whereby you can order just a bouquet, or everything you need, including bouquets, corsages, button holes, fascinators for bridesmades or mothers, or bunches of roses instead of regular flowers on table tops.”
“Moll and Mostin are the names of my two great-aunts – two little ladies with twinkly eyes and a grasp on living life, and my very own inspiring retro relatives.”
“I really like working with a range of papers – from old novels, magazines, to sheet music and beautifully coloured maps. Roses for a wedding can be made with a range of papers or with just map for those travelling types or just music for music enthusiasts.”
