When we feature gorgeous outdoor inspiration shoots like this one it always makes me wish that the weather in the UK was a little more reliable. As I look out of the window now I’m surrounded by mist, I can barely make out the buildings across the road. It’s the END OF MAY people – what is going on?!
There are some lovely ideas on display here – the whole table set up is just PERFECT, I mean if you can’t dine underneath a flower canopy on your wedding day, when can you?! I love the little love tipi too – such a cute hide away and I can’t think of a more romantic way to sleep under the stars on your wedding night.
Did I mention the bold lip yet?! It’s such a dramatic look, but if you get the right shade for your colouring – it’s just stunning.
Paloma The Wedding Planner: We created this inspirational editorial near a place called Barranco de la Encantada (the haunted rift). We wanted to reproduce a real wedding, with all of the aspects you would expect to find.
For the invitations, we chose three different textures – one was made of wood and printed with black ink, the save the date was made of fabric, and the wedding image was made of paper. For the ring holder we chose a book, in which was cut a heart containing the two rings. The customized push pops had confetti inside and the sparklers were heart shaped.
For best man and groomsmen we made a suitcase which contained all the stuff to be the perfect gentleman: a bow tie, a pair of superpowerful socks for dancing all night, a handkerchief to dry happiness tears, a pair of cuff links and a cigar (even with a customized case full of matches).
The scene for the ceremony was under the altar, like the environment, made of natural trunks, which held up the floral arrangement.
For the table plan we had an American Indian inspiration, made with arrows, which had the names of the guests and the table in which they had to sit.
We created an structure which was a decorated with a wonderful garland made of peonies, mimosa, English roses and hydrangeas, and also candles in hanging glass. On the table, covered by glazed cakes, prunes, dry plums and flowers. We also used old oil lamps, which gave the table a bucolic and romantic feel. The list of dishes and wines to be served during a meal, was made in a little bag made of fabric – kind of a mini fabric bag for bread (we call this “minuta” in Spain, and it is not a little fabric bag but a cardboard, this is the way we say what it is going to be served during the banquet). The guests could find their names in a natural leaf, which is a beautiful way of telling the guests where to seat.
The candy table was made with cakes, desserts and sponge cakes, and there was another table with lemonades and sweet/salad snacks.
In the evening, the Bride and Groom enjoyed a picnic, in which they could eat s’mores and decorate their bodies with temporary tattoos, also enjoyable for their guests. We created an space in which they could relax, made with an indian teepee, carpets, a bathtub full of cold beers.
