Planned and styled by the wonderful Your Fabulous Wedding this beautiful elegant garden wedding was an absolute pleasure to be involved in, and of course we had the perfect products to add to both the tablescape and the Bridal attire. We made the Ava silk garter in ivory and added a rose gold trim to compliment the theme. For the custom soft cotton napkins we used a metallic rose gold thread which we embroidered into initials to finish the tablescape off to perfection!
We hear from shoot co-ordinator and stylist Louise Wearmouth from Your Fabulous Wedding who tells us all about this elegant garden wedding shoot…
“Lorien from Storeybook Cakes asked me if I would help her to plan and style a shoot that she had in mind. I love Lorien’s work and when I saw the mood board she had created, I was really keen to get involved.”
“As soon as I saw the mood board, I realised that Emily Olivia Photography needed to photograph the shoot. Emily’s light and airy style of photographs is perfect for the style we had in mind.”
“I went to visit the venue – the Walled Garden at Beeston Fields – to talk to them about the possibility of holding the shoot there. When I saw the garden, I knew it was the right spot for what we had in mind. “
“The 4 layered full circle skirt has a peachy tone which complemented the autumnal colours. Coupled with the long sleeved lace bodice it’s a great choice for an autumn wedding. The bride’s hair and make up were beautifully styled by Adele Coxon and were the ideal complement to the dress.”
The brides look was of course finished off with our beautiful Ava Garter and Starbox Wedding provided some statement earrings.
The grooms attire was provided by Blidworth Menswear – a Mark Darcy 3 piece suit which fit the theme perfectly
“The flowers were created from blooms grown by Frances and Rose at their sheltered plot in the Peak District. Fresh and dried elements were used to create the hues of Autumn, with foliage and seed heads to add texture and drama to the arrangements. The bouquet was a masterpiece and was further enhanced with hand dyed silk ribbons from C Fleurs Design.”
“The cake – pale blue with copper details was perfect for the theme and was further enhanced with fresh flowers and fruit. It looked incredible on the dresser, in front of the mirror in the garden,. We added a fab flower urn and styled the table with a silk runner and more fruit.”
“Rae Jenkins at Made By Rae Designs creates unique wedding stationery. Using the garden and colour theme as inspiration, I created a simple sophisticated calligraphy suite in powder blue all wrapped up with an elegant floral vellum overlay in the same colours”
“Katie from The Ivy Cottage stepped into the breach to make the fabulous acrylic seating plan and cake menu. They both looked incredible in the garden on their copper frames.”
“When it came to designing the table setting, I wanted to use long trestle tables. The limewashed tables from Be Event Hire were the perfect choice for the garden setting.”
“I added white crockery with copper cutlery from Whitehouse Crockery.
I knew that I wanted to include silk table runners to bring softness to the table setting. I knew it was a big ask as I needed 3 really long runners so I was ecstatic when Corette from C Fleurs Design agreed to supply them. The colour was perfect and they looked fantastic against the white tables.”
“I then completed the look with my copper candlesticks, white candles and plenty of small flowers vases from Frances and Rose.”
A huge thankyou to Louise and all the team who were involved in this shoot and for featuring our products so beautifully!
