It’s one of our favourite Fridays of the year, folks. Today we’re sharing our annual round-up of the Top 20 Stylists To Follow On Instagram and as per usual, we had an absolute blast pulling it together!
This year we’ve already delivered a hefty dose of wedding planning gold via our Top 18 Caterers & Food Trucks, Top 10 Coastal Wedding Venues and Top 15 Hair and Makeup Artists to Follow on Instagram posts but today it’s all about sweet styling set-ups.
For those of you not in the know, let’s quickly clear up exactly what a wedding stylist does. We guarantee after you hear all about their wizardry you’ll be wanting one for yourself. Stylists work closely with planners and florists (or at times are one and the same), venues and you, the bride, or groom, to bring your visual dreams to life. They can work to your brief, or come up with an original concept of their own once meeting you. Basically, they take all your favourite things, distil them into one succinct idea and execute it with aplomb. Fab, right?
But enough from us! Here’s the fun part. Without further ado, let us present our Top 20 Stylists to Follow On Instagram, in no particular order, of course…
