Autumnal Inspired Styled Shoot
The leaves are turning, the nights are getting darker and it could only mean one thing… our favourite season has arrived! Here at The Wedding House we just love the overall feel of autumn; the colours, the cosy clothes and getting excited for the festive period. We thought this was the perfect opportunity to share our love of autumn with you, and create a styled shoot inspired by this season.
We teamed up with the incredibly talented Imagine Invites and Events and Jo Beth Floral Design to bring our ideas to life. Their bubbly and friendly approach makes these industry experts a dream to work with! Constant laughs and giggles, these ladies are never short of new ideas and inspiration.
The shoot took place in the magical woods of Aston on Trent, just around the corner from all three businesses! We felt this was the ideal backdrop as it showed the true beauty of autumn (although it meant we had to wear 20 layers to keep warm!). Once the scene was chosen it allowed us all to design the different elements to bring the shoot together.
Imagine Invites were in charge of designing the wedding stationery in which the whole styled shoot would be based around. Their keen eye to detail meant they were really focused on capturing the rich colours, using wine red, deep blues and greens. These colours are bang on trend for the fall period.
Sister company, Imagine Events had the pleasure of styling the set, for both the stationery and bridal shots. Imagine were keen on keeping the colour theme running throughout the shoot, so incorporated this into the decor. The overall look had a ‘Wuthering Heights’ feel by using items such as a gold candelabra, candle holders, books, rugs and fairy lights.
Our very own handpicked florist is Jo Beth Floral Design and we couldn’t have chosen anyone better to help create this scene, boy did she deliver! Jo’s attention to detail is out of this world and these flowers are no exception! Using deep reds, blues and greens, Jo really picked out the key colours for this shoot, which added the perfect finishing touch!
One of our favorite elements of the shoot, of course, is the bridal dress. This show stopper is from Kula Tsurdiu, who originates from Rhodes, Greece. Kula Tsurdiu’s childhood was enriched with generations of tradition, family values and treasured memories. We feel this dress fits in perfectly with the autumnal theme, with long sleeves and lace detailing. The gown used in this shoot is called Elizabeth (one of our favorites!) and it’s available to try on at our boutique today!
This gorgeous dress was modeled by the lovely Freya, who was a dream to work with!
Finally, our photographer for the styled shoot was the fantastic Isabel Lambourne. Isabel was a delight to work with and truly captured the beauty of the setting, stationery and the bride through the camera lens (and she even braved the cold weather!)
Well.. we think it is safe to say that this styled shoot was a huge success!
We loved every minute, from the designing process to adding the finishing touches.
We hope this inspires you as much as it did us!
