Neutral Moroccan Vibes…And An Alpaca!

Full of golden tones and pampas, we love this Moroccan styled shoot.

As the weather starts to turn milder, and the days grow longer, we’re looking ahead too summer…which is why we are all about this warming shoot submitted by photographer, Isabel Pogscheba.

Full of golden tones, pampas and simple styling, there is also a surprise guest in the form of a gorgeous, white alpaca. Speaking to Isabel, we learnt that her idea was to create a bridal styled shoot in a rustic, moroccan, festival style…and the suppliers she pulled together certainly nailed the concept!

It’s beautifully neutral, and has oodles of character…

Bathed in golden light, despite the weather on the day being dreary and damp, the team brought to life a little corner of the field which is the alpaca’s home with gorgeous, vintage wicker furniture, brass vases and candlesticks, and bang on-trend pouffes.

We especially love the cake with the stalks of florals, pampas and feathers sticking upright out of the centre…such a unique and modern way to style a buttercream cake!

The bridal style overflowed with lace…with a lace skirt and top, and a gorgeous shawl to drape over the models shoulders. Opting to go without jewellery, the team decided to up-style her gown with a beautiful floral crown handmade with white roses and eucalyptus, and a stunning bridal turban in gold, shimmery tones.

We love the different take on the boho style…natural, effortless and free-flowing, with fresh-faced bridal beauty.

TOP TIP: Vintage wicker and rattan furniture is such a massive trend this year…so if you are a stylist, snap it up on eBay/pre-loved websites or at bootsales/vintage fairs while you can, as new-age replicas are really expensive! Also, buying pre-loved items is much more eco-friendly!

Think chairs, end tables, coffee tables and even day-beds which can be used for sweetheart tables and chill out areas.

A Textural Dream at Sennowe Park

Today’s shoot focused on stunning florals, unique gowns and unparalleled bridal beauty.

There is so much I love about this shoot we have on the blog today; from the beautifully diverse models, to the layers and layers of pampas grass and wonderful floral installations. Also really crushing on how this team brought an air of boho plentifulness to the stately home setting of Sennowe Park. Not always an easy feat.

Through the use of texture, abundant blooms and festival-inspired hair, the suppliers banded together to bring a touch of the wild to the outside-in conservatory space at Sennowe; a stately home built for the now famous Thomas Cook family.

Led by Norfolk-based photographer, Sophie Cass, the shoot focused on stunning florals, unique gowns and unparalleled bridal beauty.

The gorgeous Winter Garden and surrounding grounds of Sennowe Park were the backdrop to the autumnal floral arrangements by Amber’s Rose Florist, including a free-standing pampas grass hoop, suspended pampas grass table decorations, intricate bridal bouquets and flower crowns. We are loving how no expense was spared with the floristry on this shoot…each and every installation was jam packed full of blooms, grass and foliage to create stunning, abundant seasonal displays.

Setting the scene were Little Jem Weddings, who decorated the venue and created a tablescape filled with flowers, flowing fabrics, candles and rustic details such as vintage crockery and wooden boxes. Using two characteristic cakes by Love Weddings Cakes, which drew on the marble stonework of the venue in dusky pink hues, an upcycled dresser was placed outside and decorated with flowers and ribbons against the landscape of the venue’s sprawling grounds.

Stationery, including invitations, menus and beautifully-adorned envelopes, was provided by Little Pea Designs and photographed upon the dining table and amid a flatlay inspired by the colours and flowers of the day.

The dresses, loaned by White Reflections Bridal in Norwich, were from designers Yolan Cris and Rembo Styling, and offered a combination of discerning grace and modern sophistication. From the boho-esque crocheting of Rembo Styling to the detailed lace embellishments and figure-hugging silhouettes of Yolan Cris, the gowns, modelled by Amber Burton and Bethany Tooke, were central to the contemporary yet traditional tones of the photoshoot.

To tie the photoshoot together, Brooke Thompson of Boho Beauty Box in Norwich provided hair and make-up for the two models. The darker tones of Amber’s hair and skin tone were used to create a smoky bronze look with golden eyes and dark pink lips, while her long hair was styled into a graceful updo with twists and plaits. Bethany’s pale skin played host to more autumnal tones, with rose gold eyes and pale pink lips, and her flowing red hair was teased into a unique ponytail.

You can feel the love on this shoot. Sophie talks so fondly of all the suppliers who worked together to make this boho dream a reality…

“I absolutely loved every supplier that was involved in this shoot. I’d worked with a couple of people before, while others were totally new faces. It was so wonderful to have the opportunity to work with some of the most talented suppliers across Norfolk and Suffolk, bringing together everybody’s creativity. Sophie
