A dreamy, whimsical styled shoot at The Pumping House with a fashion-forward edge…

This talented team of wedding suppliers wanted to create a dreamy styled shoot with a fashionable feel, something that was a heavenly blend of edginess, beauty and on-trend designs. With a backdrop of The Pumping House and heaps of talent, we can't help but swoon.

We'll hand you over to Chris of Ivory Fayre Photography to tell you a little bit more about this stunning shoot…


“We took a lot of inspiration from The Pumping House, our venue as it has this incredible mix of old and new – beautiful, original windows with contemporary flooring and styling. It also boasts some pretty incredible grounds so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make use of them. We really liked the idea of pairing unusual things together – and so the theme ‘Into the Wild’ was born!

The shoot was to feature heavy greenery and foliage with slight accents of muted pinks, blues and greys. This meant the use of bright smoke bombs really worked – again creating that juxtaposition that we were looking for.

The flowers were supplied by Avant Garden – Laura and Scott really worked their magic on the ‘Into the Wild’ theme! We had heavily foliaged hoops, overhead hanging flower arrangements and the most incredible bouquets.

When we got out into the woods Save the Date Event Stylists provided us with a beautiful chandelier hanging from the trees and some gorgeous gilded frames which were adorned with flowers from Avant Garden. There’s something beautiful about the clash of those items out in the wood.”


“Hair by Cherry from Nashwhite, and make-up by Josephine Way, wanted to use the colours and textures from the surroundings to really pull everything together. Josephine Way created a dark smokey eye to add intensity and kept the rest of the makeup fresh and in keeping with the muted colours of the shoot. Cherry created fabulous messy up do’s which really fitted with the ‘Into the Wild’ theme.

Rachel Ash provided a selection of dreamy dresses which were topped off with beautiful crystal accessories from Annaliese Rivers. Cherry also added some flower headpieces which looked gorgeous with the backdrop of the woods.”
