Oh my goodness, I’ve been dying to share this amazing bridal editorial with you. So thrilled to see it featured over on Rock My Wedding who are loving the vibrant Spring colours. The team who brought this editorial together are all about pushing boundaries and not sticking to the wedding rule book. We love to be adventurous and take risks to create looks that haven’t been seen before. There’s a magic that happens when we come together as we spark a creativity in each other that always elevates our work.
Our shoot centred around the stylish city bride who’s looking for a modern, contemporary vibe to her wedding. This starts with her 2-piece bridal outfit – a daring crop top paired with sleek and elegant trousers as well as a super chic blush pink knitted jacket, all made by British designers. And those eye catching, bright orange velvet shoes! Ashleigh is brilliant at showing how colour can be feature in all elements of your wedding and not just on the the table or the flowers. In our editorial, you can see colour on the bride (in her clothing and her make-up) and in the stationery as well. Zara and Carla gave our bride a unique look with glowy skin, a coral winged eyeliner and and bold hair updo / undo with statement Tilly Thomas Lux accessories.
The colours here celebrate what we see in nature’s Spring palette with pastel colours like lilac, blush / nude pink and mint with a pop of rich orange. Kai did what she does best in creating flowers that are a real focal point by guiding your eye around the venue. She used Japanese inspired design to display flowers at different heights and showcased individual flowers standing tall in their bowls. An abundance of textural flowers: ranunculus, poppies, tulips, sweetness and roses all in those divine Spring colours – oh so pretty and oh so fresh, especially against the backdrop of this industrial restaurant with its huge skylights, exposed ducting and modern, urban interior.
My aim with the cake design was to juxtapose those luscious florals with a cake that brought all the urban drama. Tall grey buttercream tiers in a stone / concrete effect to contrast starkly with the soft, vibrant Spring flowers. I couldn’t resist creating an explosion of colour with the flowers to give the cake a real ‘wow’ factor.
So grateful to be able to share it all through incredible imagery from both Elena and Grace. There’s a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes to create wedding inspiration like this, so I absolutely love that you get a glimpse at the hustle and bustle that goes on to deliver this kind of beauty. As always, I’ll sign off here and let you absorb all this achingly hip wedding inspiration – I can’t get enough of this shoot!
