There were the most lavish, opulent and striking floral arrangements ever. Think flower installations everywhere, from adorned hanging hoops to a floral packed top table and whimsical bouquets. Oh my! Then there was the lovely styling on the tables, complete with botanical stationery, pretty tableware and a show stopper of a cake. The bride and groom looked so on trend in their perfect outfits and bridal hair and make up look. Wow wee.
Many thanks goes to Ivory Fayre for sharing these sensational shots.
“When we all set out to create this shoot we wanted to make something super dreamy with a fashion feel – something that was edgy and yet absolutely beautiful all in one.
We chose The Pumping House as our venue for the shoot because it has this incredible mix of old and new – beautiful, original windows with contemporary flooring and styling. It also boasts some pretty incredible grounds so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make use of them. We really liked the idea of creating pairing unusual things together -and so the theme ‘Into the Wild’ was born!
The shoot was to feature heavy greenery and foliage with slight accents of muted pinks, blues and greys. This meant the use of bright smoke bombs really worked – again creating that juxtaposition that we were looking for.
The flowers were supplied by Avant Garden – Laura and Scott really worked their magic on the ‘Into the Wild’ theme! We had heavily foliaged hoops, overhead hanging flower arrangements and the most incredible bouquets.
When we got out into the woods Save the Date Event Stylists provided us with a beautiful chandelier hanging from the trees and some gorgeous gilded frames which were adorned with flowers from Avant Garden. There’s something beautiful about the clash of those items out in the woods.
Hair (Cherry from Nashwhite) and Makeup (Josephine Way) wanted to use the colours and textures from the surroundings to really pull everything together. Josephine Way created a dark smokey eye to add intensity and kept the rest of the makeup fresh and in keeping with the muted colours of the shoot.
Cherry created fabulous messy up do’s which really fitted with the ‘into the wild’ theme. Rachel Ash provided a selection of dreamy dresses which were topped off with beautiful crystal accessories from Annaliese Rivers. Cherry also added some flower headpieces which looked gorgeous with the backdrop of the woods….”
