If you are feeling the change in the weather and are reaching for another sip of that pumpkin spice latte whilst secretly jamming to Christmas tunes (its never too early right?), then this warming, deep-toned shoot will be right up your alley.
Featuring some incredible talent, including Marnie Cornell, Grace Loves Lace and one of our faves, Rock & Stone Weddings, this modern, bohemian take on bridal styling is both achingly beautiful and heartwarmingly cosy.
Amber, from Rock & Stone, explains that the team wanted to create an ethereal and organic bohemian vibe, amidst the cold, grey Washington winter earlier this year.
The venue, Manchester Park, is famous for it’s red brick building: a former torpedo warehouse, with windowless arches and a weathered beamed ceiling. Along with the gorgeous stone fireplace, the venue has become a coveted wedding spot. The mood board was full of earthy and natural textures and deep reds and browns, and wouldn’t you agree the team hit the nail on the head! We’re loving the deep reds of the flowers, interspersed with cotton heads and feathers for a wonderful bohemian vibe.
With stunning macrame and silks, oodles of candles and just the right amount of styling to retain an effortless air, the tablescape with added cake by Sift & Gather is easily one of our favourite aspect of the teams efforts…although the model in a stunning Grace Loves Lace gown comes in a close second; perfectly primped and preened by mega babes Pacific Brides.
And would you look at that gorgeous stationery by the super talented Ink & Sable…we’re loving how the powdery pink edges tie back to the cake and the napkins. Just perfection!
Amber explains that the shoot had a couple of pressure points…
“The shoot was originally scheduled for February but we had to bring it forward after our stunning model was asked to fly to Milan for fashion week castings right after Christmas! She was leaving the following day so it made it extra special that she got to take farewell photos with her love.”
The bridal look is something we haven’t really seen before, so when Amber sent over the images, we were so excited by them. The turban, by Bridal Turban based in Italy, made for a gorgeous accompaniment to the gown and made a change from all the flower crowns we are used to seeing both as part of shoots and real weddings. Great to see something totally unique!
