The best ideas always sprout from something simple;
for me it began with a phone call amongst friends,
Jane beadnell and I got to chatting;
We wanted to do a shoot that would appeal to the modern millennial Bride providing ultimate wedding inspiration.
Bohemian and 1970s vibes are here to stay along with the current 2017 trends of festivals, mermaids and unicorns we wanted to convey a feel of whimsy and inspiring fantasy deep in the woods as our bridal shoot.
We wanted to show the Bride and groom of the future with a more relaxed approach to weddings and a love of nature.
In the ever changing wedding trends we observed the lack of looks for the modern Brides.
New Brides that break away from tradition and structure but still want a day unique to them and their style.
We chose the North star club in York as it is in an exclusive location with rustic log cabins and lots of space for yurts/ marquee weddings. This is perfect for Brides who love the Hippy, Boho feel and relaxed on their big day but still want those elements of glamour and style.
We wanted our wedding shoot to tell a story ; Jane’s easy natural approach to photography is calming, something everyone appreciates on their wedding day. Her unobtrusive style captures real life and those moments of magic, creating a treasured collection of memories.
We accomplished an insipring look for the modern Bride that hosted a fantasy, modern and edgy feel in a magical woodland setting. finishing with unique and inspiring special touches that would make any Bohemian Bride feel their Wedding day was utterly unique and special.
We were inspired by Themes of Coachella, Tomorow-land and the trend of Unicorns this year. We used this in the Wedding colours of the styling The banquet table styling which was brilliantly done by Ambience Venue styling York. with carefully selected tableware, candles and glassware. Each element chosen to compliment the rich colour palette whilst creating a sense of occasion.
We also showed inspirational colour though the makeup artistically done by Amy George Makeup Artist. She created a magical look for Fairy-tale Bride who had Glittery eyes and deep vampy lips.
Hairstyle was masterfully created by Belle & Bride, she chose a look that conveyed a cute hippy- style fishtail Braid with stunning loose curls.
This look suited our Groom sporting his trendy beard and TATTOOS.
The stunning Accessories provided by the Boutique; Bespoke Vintage Castle were perfect for the ethereal theme, veils of stars, vintage jewellery and glittering starry tiaras were perfect pieces that complimented the look and attributed to the elements of fantasy and themes of drama.
The beautiful Accessories matched the Gown perfectly; provided by The Bridal Emporium, who offered the perfectly detailed Eliza Jane Howell dress for the shoot; covered in iridescent sequins that caught the light and added a 70s retro feel to the look. This is modern day wedding inspiration at its best.
The highly acclaimed cakes by: Zoes fancy cakes were custom made and were covered in stunning sugar flowers and pearlescent macarons. Enriched in hand painted colours that were moody, ethereal and magical they went perfectly with the flowers provided by Artisan Florist Leafy Couture; showcasing bursting Hydrangeas in rich lavish shades and added a sense of glamour and regality inspiring young brides to have a weddingfull and vivacious flowers on a smaller budget. Also adorning the table; Jane created the pretty Origami flower stationery, beautifully detailed and coordinated the place settings had the personal touch that ensures every one of the guest feels special.
