Beautiful, Timeless Tableware from Denby

Denby

One of the most fun aspects of building your new home together as newlyweds is selecting beautiful products that you’ll love using for special occasions, as well as everyday, in the years ahead. And when it comes to stocking your new collective kitchen, let’s face it: the piecemeal set of dishes you’ve been hanging onto since college are probably not going to cut it anymore!  That’s why were excited to introduce you all to Denby, a great resource for versatile, expertly crafted cook + dinnerware. Denby has been making pottery in Derbyshire, the heart of England, for over 200 years using skills that have been passed down from generation to generation. Using their own locally sourced clay, their durable + distinctive products are available in over 5,000 vibrant glazes + tons of beautiful, on-trend patterns. Here are a few of our favorites of theirs…

Denby Halo Collection


The Halo Collection’s distinct style is created by applying two tones of glaze which merge, achieving unique results that will look great in your home.

Heather_Collection


Heather features a rich shade of purple and a unique speckle glaze that gives this pattern the signature Denby look, blending high design with the handmade.

Denby Malmo


The new Malmo Collection was inspired by the bold, simple lines of Scandinavian design. The shape is uncomplicated and modern, with a purity of line which reflects its northern European roots.

Moonsoon_Veronica


The Moonsoon Veronica tableware collection offers a contemporary take on traditional floral designs. Items in this range fuse the bold and subtle, incorporating blue, charcoal and teal in a design on soft cream china.

Denby Heritage Pavillion


The Heritage Pavilion Collection is reminiscent of the 1950’s with its graphic motif, classic duck egg blue and lemon color palette.

Moonsoon_Daisy


And, lastly, the Monsoon Collection Daisy features feminine and floral vintage design made from fine cream china in soft green and lilac tones from Monsoon’s textile archives.

Denby offers everything from fun, patterned tableware that’s perfect for mixing + matching to an array of elegant china, all manufactured with the highest quality control standards providing a safe product for you and your family. From the smallest cup to the biggest casserole, their products can be used with confidence in the oven, microwave, freezer and dishwasher – a Denby feature we personally LOVE.

We’re sure you’re wondering, so we’re happy to let you know that Denby also has a wedding + gift registry so you can start building your kitchen + tableware collection together with ease.

Rustic Brazilian Wedding: Renata + João

brazil wedding

We love that we get to share beautiful weddings from all over the world here on GWS. Sometimes they take place in our own Los Angeles backyard + sometimes we’re whisked away to far off places, like Brazil, where Renata + João tied the knot. These lovebirds decided to host their wedding in the same place where they first met, Renata’s family’s country house, and went with a simpler design plan so that the beauty of their surroundings could really shine though. We love the romantic, pastel color story they incorporated + a communal feast of favorite local recipes + delightful cakes and sweets was just right for their laid back, family-oriented celebration.

One of the best decisions these two made was flying their talented photographer, Leo Patrone, to Brazil to capture their day! We just love how all of the pretty photos really transport us right to the beautiful, rustic country setting!

Sunset Malibu Engagement Session: Lauren + Patrick

malibu engagement

Just from a quick glance at that opening image by Gregory Ross, we know we’re in for a treat with this one! But, this gorgeous sunset Malibu e-session has even more to it than meets the eye. Lauren, the lovely bride-to-be, was given a fun opportunity to try out bareSkin, the groundbreaking new liquid foundation from bareMinerals! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the bareMinerals brand, the best thing to know about their philosophy is their focus on good-for-you formulas that enhance – rather than cover up – your natural beauty. bareSkin is available in 20 skin-loving shades, so finding your perfect match is a piece of cake. And since bareMinerals is known for their flawless, no-makeup look and feel, you’re guaranteed to look like yourself (but the very best version of!) on your wedding day. And that’s what pretty much every bride wants, right?!

The way this session started out is kind of our dream. All the bareMinerals makeup you can imagine, crazy-pretty florals by Dandelion & Grey, and a floaty BHLDN dress thrown in for good measure. It’s almost easy to forget there’s another part to this shoot — tons of dreamy sunset shots of Lauren + Patrick in a beautiful, open Malibu field!

So much pretty! Let’s hear a little bit of backstory from this super-cute duo:

We met through Patrick’s matchmaker sister, Alexis! She mentioned I had to meet her brother while he was home from Seattle for Christmas because we’d probably hit it off. I have never been on a blind date, so I was a little nervous, but more weirded out about meeting someone for the first time and getting to know them in a very close vicinity of other people. (To this day we eaves drop and enjoy people-watching when we can tell it’s a first date!). I showed up a little late, but he stood up right away and introduced himself in front of the bar seats he saved for us. What a tall refreshing glass of water with BEAUTIFUL blue eyes We faced our chairs towards each other while we talked the night away and he showed me how good of a listener he is and how much of a gentleman he is as well. We were so interested in each others’ careers, hobbies, and family life that we didn’t want the night to end. We told each other we would stay in touch and he flew back to California take me out for my birthday. At the end of the night, he pulled up to my house to drop me off, turned off the car, held my hand and told me how much he liked me and that he would love to see where this could go. Right then and there (for the first time in my life) I told a boy that I flat out really liked him too, with NO hesitation. We were long distance for 9 months until he moved home to Orange County. Thank goodness! Now every year we go back to Paul Martins on the day we met and reminisce as we love to do! And after a romantic Christmas Eve proposal, we’ve begun planning our dream wedding, which will take place on my parent’s farm next Spring!

Big congrats, you two! And for all of you other newly engaged gals, be sure to remember bareMinerals for your engagement photos + wedding day! Whether you ask your make-up artist to use it, or DIY your own because it’s just so easy, bareMinerals the perfect way to naturally look your absolute best!
