A darkly elegant wedding and bridal inspiration – we love the moodiness, old world brick, and the acrylic flower boxes bringing in just a touch of modern. Blue details were scattered throughout for ‘something blue’ and bringing a touch of color to this pastel environment.
from the photographer: “A tribute to delicate femininity.
The shoot was inspired by romantic Tuscan weddings. The Cotswold stone barn felt like the perfect fit with dusky blues & wild florals. I was inspired by the rustic setting of the barn, juxtaposing this with modern acrylic signage details & elegant dresses by Pronovias & Rebecca Ingram.
Setting the tone for the day was the gorgeous stationery created by Emerald Paper Design. The invitation suite was classic monochrome, with a hand deckled edge. The dusky blue introduced the main colour for the day, finished off with the most stunning wax seals, complete with gold foil.
Flowers by Charlotte Elizabeth created an intimate ceremony set up with a wild, deconstructed floral arch. The bouquet was full of the same wild blooms, pops of dusky blues, peaches, pinks & white.
The wedding breakfast table was set with a soft blue table runner, with tableware from Luxe My Wedding creating the perfect intimate dining setting. The hammered brass candle holders were a favourite detail of mine & tied in perfectly with the brushed gold cutlery. We kept the florals on the table quite delicate.
Deliciously Divine created the beautiful frilled cake, with wafer paper blossoms to decorate, tying in the theme of wild florals and our pastel colours.
Our bride, Yasmin was a vision in the elegant gowns from Pronovias & Rebecca Ingram. We wanted the gowns to feel quite relaxed in keeping with a soft, floaty, feminine feel for the day. Each dress had gorgeous detailing on the sleeves. Her make up & hair was soft and natural, adding a slightly heavier eye later on to create a touch of drama, which suited the simplicity of Rebecca Ingram’s Bethany dress perfectly.
Clean, modern acrylic signage was provided by Handmade Signage Company. She hand painted the welcome sign & one of my favourite parts of the whole shoot was seeing the table plan come together. Stacked acrylic blocks with florals inside to create contrast & make the names legible. Such a beautiful effect against the stone of the barn behind. We finished the day off with a luxurious, cosy lounge area to relax and enjoy a glass of prosecco.”
