Wedding Styling - Textures Inspiration Shoot

Today I am delighted to share with youwedding inspiration photo shoot I worked on earlier in the year, possibly one of the most unusual and fun I have had the pleasure of working on!

We wanted to create a shoot that embodies effortless elegance, and to show that you don’t have to have a definite wedding “theme”. There is so much pressure to have a Pinterest worthy wedding; couples can sometimes get caught up in the theme of their wedding so much that it can be hard to keep the personal elements too.

The photoshoot focuses on the elements of texture in a wedding, from silky soft tulle to feathers and foliage, to the beauty in vintage wooden furniture, in essence a theme without a theme. We decided to strip back on the “themed” props and accessories and work with items that fit with the venue. With a colour scheme of soft greens, ivory and blush pink the shoot has a light, whimsical feel to match the lightness of an orangery wedding, and to carry this feeling through to all the elements of the shoot we decided to include some little wedding helpers, as previously seen on the very cute biscuit adverts!

The photo shoot takes place at the stunning orangery at Gaynes Park and features a selection of fabulous suppliers including designer gowns from Berta and Monique Lhuillier, with Sanshine Photography capturing everyone's work to perfection. 

Our beautiful model’s makeup featured beautiful dark smoky eyeshadow combined with a simple top-knot, the overall effect is elegant with a hint of glamour. Each of the dresses showcased two different looks, from fitted silhouette and lace details in the Zuhair Murad dress, to soft blush pink tulle in a strapless ball gown style from Monique Lhuillier. I decided to keep the accessories minimal as the makeup was all that was needed to set off each dress, the only adornment being Aruna Seth shoes.
