A romantic getaway wedding on the beach…
With the current beach weather inspiring us all this ethereal beach styled shoot is for the free spirited couples. A light and airy theme of greys and silvers with lavender accents. Norfolk was the beautiful sandy backdrop this summer.
A sweetheart table by Princess Occasions was set amongst the sand dunes for a romantic getaway wedding, with stationery by Rose Press, florals by Bradgate Flowers and a cake inspired by a collected. beach stone from Cottonwood Bakery. The all female supplier team of talent and friendship, came together to create a beach elopement for a real engaged couple, wearing Jesus Piero from Frances Day Bridal.
TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE SHOOT…
“The shoot was captured in a hidden away beach In Norfolk. Some of the ladies from the shoot team had all recently visited the beautiful sands of Norfolk and a styled shoot there had been on their minds for a long time. The opportunity was finally right with the luck we’ve had with the British weather. After 30 degree heat, we met on the beach on a weekday in March and were met with grey skies and powerful winds. The original plan was to photograph the sweetheart table in front of the cliffs and piled rocks, but the wind had a different idea and the props didn’t want to stay put.
A perfect spot was found within the dunes where everyone was sheltered from the wind, and the sun started to shine! The shoot was a short but sweet day, it was the first shoot of the team together and it was kept simple yet effective. The models were a real couple that are due to be married at the end of this year and the styled shoot was perfect for them to get practising their poses. Saskia from Hair & Makeup by Saskia perfected the both of them with a soft natural look for the bridal makeup and a masterpiece of a mermaid plait with flowers sprayed across.”
WHAT WAS THE THEME?
“The light and airy theme of greys and silvers with lavender accents were brought together by the suppliers and their wonderful talents. Helen from Bradgate Flowers added silver/grey peacock feathers to the bouquet along with trailing sea grass. The bride wore flower anklets to replace the shoes and gave the shoot that wonderful feeling of your toes in the sand.
The sweetheart beach table was created by Princess Occasions, with natural flowing fabrics and silver coral like plate chargers. The menus and place names added by Rose Press were kept simple yet sophisticated with watercolour details. The intimate table explored the beach elopement feel and created a set up that a couple could expect on their getaway beach wedding.”
TELL US ABOUT THE DESSERT TABLE AND DÉCOR?
“In the middle of the sweetheart table stood the cake by Cottonwood Bakery, a design she had wanted to try for a while. After a walk along a Norfolk beach on a family holiday she found a soft white stone with grey and peach swirls running through it, she used these colours and created this beautiful two tier textured cake.
The winds got stronger throughout the day and the dresses and veils were creating some flowing shots with movement. The dress was a simple classic style by Jesus Piero with a unusual leaf pattern lace from Frances Day Bridal. Juila added a net skirt over the dress to soften for a more beach look. The open diamond back was fastened with a small bow and with the mermaid hair pushed to one side it really showed off those small details. The second bridal outfit from Noble & Wright Atelier was a large flowing silk skirt with an added net overlay. The lace top was long sleeved with a scooping open back. A lace top that could be styled over a dress or top, here it was styled with a lace bra to show off the back.”
