Get your fix of tropical wedding inspiration with this epic styled shoot...
The shoot was initially inspired by the colours and textures of Thailand. Hand ice-dyed fabrics, ombré candles and vintage-glam tableware, hand-dipped stationery and tropical flowers on rustic wooden furniture completed the look of this magical tablescape. Following on through to the hand-painted indigo and gold embellished wedding cake framed by a dramatic handmade heart structure that was also the backdrop to the whimsical afternoon tea scene.
Whimsical glamour settled into the theme when experimenting with textures. The velvet bridesmaid dresses shimmered delicately against the beautiful hand- coloured, ombré wedding dress finished with a “gossamer like” top with floating sleeves and an open back. The models held striking protea filled bouquets wrapped with organic hand- dyed silks.
The boho hairstyles dressed with a mixture of flower crowns and vintage headpieces and accessories finished off the look and set the scene for a magical outdoor afternoon tea with vintage china and delicious cakes
The shoot was initially inspired by Thailand, with the hand ice-dyed runners and napkins set against the bright tropical flowers and the ombre wedding dress. Whimsical glamour came into play when we were experimenting with textures of the bridesmaids dresses and accessories, the afternoon-tea feel was to “set the scene” for our playful bridesmaids and bride.
The Heath House in Staffordshire is a gothic venue with the most beautiful surroundings. The shoot was set in their rustic Orangery, neatly hidden behind well kept gardens. It is used for outdoor ceremonies and its glass ceiling, arched windows, rustic wooden doors, climbing plants and beautiful views were perfect for the vision we had in mind. The large Cedar tree in the grounds played an important part in the afternoon tea and bride/bridesmaids shots which seemed like fairies at the bottom the garden!
