I'd been wanting to do a styled shoot for soooo long but never had the time.....until earlier this year!
I got in touch with Aishah at The Boat House as it's one of my fave venues and I'm one of the recommended suppliers there. It's the perfect venue as it's such a blank canvas! Then I messaged Laura from Elegant Affair to see if they wanted to collaborate. Thankfully they are both superstars and excitedly said yes!
We decided that a greenery themed wedding with hints of gold and neutrals and a mix of geometrics and acrylics thrown in would be perfect for what we had in mind. Laura created lots of stunning centrepieces and dressed the venue to perfection. Her fabulous "Moongate" was a key element of the shoot so she created her "mini-moons" for the tables.
Although we themed it for Spring it's huge versatile for any time of the year simply by changing the greenery used and accent colours!
Aishah and I were really keen to have a "Sweethearts Table" rather than the usual top table showcased. It was perfect! With the Moongate behind and the table decorated with geometrics, floating candles, little bottles with flowers and eucalyptus hanging rom the front it was a masterpiece! The perfect setting for newlyweds to relax alone whilst taking in their wedding breakfast!
I roped in a friend and her partner to model for us and we chose other local suppliers for the final touches.
Doing the shoot in April was a bit risky (thanks to the joys of British weather!) but thankfully other than a couple of showers it stayed dry and went without a hitch!
Kristy & Daniel totally rocked the day and I love how perfect they are with each other!
