It’s a snow filled day here in Sheffield, how is it where you are? Never...
I have a super stylish styled shoot to share with you today. The shoot took place on 12th October last year at Midelney Manor in Somerset, and was submitted to me by Jennifer Maynard at Parker and Peony flowers. The whole shoot is dark, dramatic and full of the most amazing florals and decor. The team involved wanted to create something that was edgy, cool, yet reflective of the Victorian era, using dramatic tones, mixed with dried flowers and tropical greenery. This really created a wow factor, and the two models really add to the sense of style. A really beautiful shoot, showing that elopements can be full of details as well as a style.
This shoot is right on trend with the use of dried floral design, cinematic style photography and bespoke wedding stationery and luxurious table scape ware that screams to the viewer, ‘Dare to be bold and create the day you REALLY want!!’.
The editorial concept included an eclectic and dramatic mix of decedent detailing with a colour palette that echos the Victorian adoration for opulence and deep earthy hues and metallic, contrasted against the soft relaxed feel of the bohemian bridal and groomsmen look with an edge of quirk.
As a wedding florist who loves to push boundaries and specialises in ‘Boho Glam’ floral design, my concept was originally inspired by the resurgence of dried florals onto the wedding scene, and also my love for big and bold tropical greenery. I wanted to showcase the possibilities of incorporating both of these botanical features into one badass venue look that would create a unique WOW factor that we haven’t seen before on the wedding scene.
The beautifully romantic story of elopement, inspired this team to create a dramatic story entirely different from the usual. With a heavy nod towards the drama and mood of the Victorian era including a mix of simple elegant and luxurious fine details to the heavy use of decadent dried foliage displays. All with a heavy inspiration of William Morris’ theatrical home décor work who was once quoted as saying ‘There is no excuse for doing anything which is not strikingly beautiful’.
I not only wanted create a look that was fresh to the South West wedding scene, I also wanted to showcase the work of a few of the many hidden gems of small businesses across our region that specialise in creating a boho inspired wedding day for their clients.
