Good morning gorgeous,
You know me, I adore being able to inspire you with something a little bit different! Today, a very gorgeous and very clever styled shoot.
Creating a wedding that is unique to you and your partner is ALL in the details, no matter how grande or subtle.
This shoot is all about detail and is bursting with fresh ideas to inspire a contemporary wedding theme.
I LOVE it. To me it has a subtle, elegant, fresh, winter and spring wedding vibe (depending on the touches you add). The emphasis on textures is an absolutely fantastic idea, especially if you prefer not to incorporate traditional Christmas colours that are often seen in winter themes, such as reds and golds.
This organic shoot is designed and styled by incredibly clever and talented London wedding planner Andri, of Always Andri. This shoot is also a debut for this champion photographer on Nu Bride; Fiona Kelly Photography, who captures every detail with such elegance.
What I love most about this shoot, is the incorporation of lots of scrumptious textures to create the theme. Demonstrating that you don’t just have to pick your favourite colour to create a stunning wedding theme. If you’re a kinesthetic kind of lady, you’ll adore experimenting with textures to add an exciting dimension to your wedding décor. Just look at the inspiration in this shoot; from the decorations, to the stunning wire place settings, to the 3D details on the cake, to the accents on the dress and shoes.
Oh, and look out for model Bryony’s fantastic braid by Sjaniel Turrell and the clever wire table numbers!
A real visual treat. Simply gorgeous!
About the Shoot
The inspiration for this shoot was to create a style that used textures as the starting point. We loved the idea of something that could be simple, elegant and yet detailed and with depth.
These beautiful images from photographer Fiona Kelly showcase a shoot full of lush, organic textures and show how you can create an elegant, stylish wedding with a few, simple unusual touches.
The venue for the shoot was the Royal Geographical Society in London. The classic, simple lines of the Main Hall were a perfect backdrop for the opulent top table. Dressed in layers of Eucalyptus, Green Bells & ivory Majolica roses, our florist Blue Sky Flowers created a dramatic display, adding a touch of luxury with bronze spray painted ferns & Eryngium thistles. A scattering of pheasant feathers finished off the organic look.
The earthy looking stationery was created by Kate Ruth Romey who used brown paper & wooden details for the place settings. The ingenious table plan was a clever combination of little, brown luggage tags suspended from giant wire globes made by our stylist Andri Benson. The wire detail was also incorporated into the place settings with twirly bronze plate chargers and nests for the cute bronze, mini cakes provided by Little Boutique Bakery.
The elegant ivory wedding cake was decorated with delicate sugar flowers in the same muted colours as the tablescape and the bouquet; a unique organic arrangement of Broom, ivory Hydrangea and Majolica spray roses and those lovely Pheasant feathers again!
To match the opulence of the table, our model bride, Bryony, wears ‘Callie’ from Jennie Packham a beautiful, simple tulle gown embellished with sequins. We pulled the look together with a bronze ribbon belt to coordinate with the floral arrangements and Sjaniel Turrell styled Bryony’s hair into a classic up-do with a modern twist.
The second gown featured is a classic, elegant design from Kobus Dippenaar (AG-12-022) supplied by Morgan-Davies Bridal, who kindly provided all the accessories for this shoot. With a simple strapless bodice and full, flared skirt we accessorised the gown with a sequinned belt and the fabulous bronze shrug by Jesus Peiro to give the right amount of shimmer. Bryony’s look was more laid back with a modern, fishtail plait and classic, natural make up. Shoes throughout were provided by Marsha Hall.
