Creating styled shoots is something lots of people in the wedding industry do. Working as a team to create a series of fabulous images to inspire brides and promote our wedding business’s is something that makes complete sense. Everyone chips in, bringing their own expertise to the table. I really love the opportunity it gives me to be creative and come up with concepts for my own shoots.
Essentially everyone works for free to get these great images, which often get published on wedding blogs or magazines.
Last year I decided to organise my own shoot, I spent quite a lot of time researching and coming up with a mood board, whilst also reaching out to other suppliers who I wanted to be involved.
Once I had found a venue and we all agreed on a date that worked for everyone. I then had to find the models, and it all came together beautifully.
The vision for this styled shoot of warm pastel tones against a backdrop of rustic wooden panels and floors, incorporating movement and energy from the bride was brought to life when our fantastic team came together, each with their own expertise field.
We selected flowers with lots of ruffles and layers to give that romantic essence, in peaches, pinks and whites, with a touch of lilac, and incorporated fruits to dress the table, which provided a bit of opulence. We used blush pinks for the tablecloth and napkins, together with candles to compliment and add warmth.
Our bride is a free spirit who loves to dance, wearing a stunning two piece gown by Suzanne Harrington Brides.
