Hello you lovely people. Welcome back to the blog and happy 2024! Did you have...
Today’s styled shoot is all about opulence, glamour and anything goes! I just adore this shoot, it is full of fun, vitality and so many disco balls! If you’re looking to inject some fun into your wedding, then this shoot is for you! It breaks the rules and shows that tradition can be thrown out the window when planning your big day. The shoot took place in August 2023 at Howsham Hall in York. I have featured this venue before on the blog here, for another amazing shoot, so you can see the venue really does lend itself to some really remarkable inspiration. So get your self ready for disco balls, a monochrome colour scheme and some pretty impressive decoration.
The idea is to show that brides can be brave and bold, their wedding doesn’t need to fall into a pigeonhole they can go wild! We wanted to give the feeling of empowerment that anything is possible, if you want a black dress and zebra at your wedding then why the hell not! Disco vibes but with a twist within a beautiful venue. Showcasing some of the latest wedding trends, audio guest book with retro phone, Ring for service prosecco living wall and mirror balls galore!
Paul our stylist came up with the theme “I was going for a New Years Eve, very chic and opulent affair with a nod to the lavish parties held in manor houses in the 20’s. Where exotic animals roamed freely with party guests (hence the Zebra). I Chose the monochrome pallet as its modern yet timeless and the pop of metallic makes it feel more party chic!”
EPH Creative’s in house stylist Paul came up with the concept. He wanted to give the feel of super Avant Garde elegance / editorial. Monochrome magic but with pops of golds and greens. The outdoor ceremony featured plinths, mirror balls an oversize ornate frame which perfectly framed the countryside view, dressed with foliage, mirror balls, peacock chair and topiary. His amazing photo op which doubled as cake cutting and dancefloor backdrop was the star of the show! A living wall bedecked with a neon and foliage, plinths, mirror balls and of course a zebra! I loved his ideas for table scape; with patterned table cloths a firm trend the black & white stripes were next level! The foliage and mirror balls cascading from the top table in the bay window wowed us all! I loved that the stationery picked up the zebra stripes in the envelope and had the disco vibe throughout. This carried through to the signage that we used plinths, mirror balls and urns to display. Paul is also a florist, he used faux foliage which is a sustainable option, using a mix of metallic and green palms, with white pampas and other white flowers which really elevated the whole look of the photo op and outdoor ceremony backdrop. The shoot exceeded my expectations and I feel all suppliers did an amazing job so we definitely accomplished what we set out to achieve!
