With a gorgeous colour palette, a textural combination of dried and fresh flowers and a selection of stylish bridal wear from the latest collection by Halfpenny London, this minimalist bridal inspiration will have you weak at the knees. Louise from One Stylish Day always creates beauty and with Agnes Black taking the images, it’s a match made in heaven.
Minimalist Bridal Style
Louise from One Stylish Day is my absolute favourite stylist to work with. Her vision is alway fashion forward, her composition always on point and her creativity knows no bounds. The mood board Louise created for the shoot was a long time in the making, we don’t get the chance too work together often so when we do we want to create something EPIC.
The vision for the shoot epitomised the One Stylish Day signature style; a design for a contemporary, style driven and minimalist couple who are willing to push creative boundaries, yet an underpinning air of complete elegance. The colour palette was kept to neutral, earthy shades with textures and tones being key to the look. The natural design in contrast with our modern, fearless and incredibly stylish Bride and a city centre space creates the perfect balance.
The table design was kept minimalist, with the focal point hanging above. A design feature that shows no signs of slowing down. Luxurious, draping linens, tall tapered dinner candles in muted but oh so beautiful shades and handwritten stationery bring the refined elements to the design. The smallest details including the slim shape of the cutlery, the angles from the smoked glassware and the subtle tonal design of the crockery elevate the design from simply elegant to creatively unique.
The flowers by May Be May were some of the most beautifully creative I have seen. The flowers were a combination of both fresh and dried flowers and foliage with a focus on sourcing a variety of interesting textures to work with alongside creating a colour palette to match the shoots style and elegance.
Working her green fingered magic she created a beautiful hanging installation in which she used a mix of seasonal foliage, fresh Lunaria, Twisted Willow and Air plants such as Spanish Moss, suspended directly above the table setting, the table centerpieces were in contrast to the heaviness of the suspend installation and she used a variety of Ornamental Grasses to create delicate floral touches along the length of the table.
The model’s bouquets were made using a majority of dried flowers, again to create texture and movement with her bouquet. This time, dried Lunaria to create a silver tone, a variety of Wheat and Corn, alongside Astilbe, Roses and Smoke Bush for contrast, gathered together with a natural dyed silk ribbon.
The dresses were sent to us by Halfpenny London. I could not have been more excited, one of my favourite designers, the dresses are modern, feminine and contemporary.
The hair and make up team were incredible, they make what they do seem so effortless even though each component is carefully constructed. From the loose textured waves, and tucked in bob to the low bun surrounded by greenery, Alice work is incredible and she really know how to show a simple, natural look for brides. Amy George created a delicate dewy look for the model, enhancing her natural features, with a pop of orange on the lip for the final look.
The film was produced by none other than McGill Sister Films. Their style paired with the light-filled, airy studio of Tanzaro house, made it feel effortless to showcase the details. To echo the vendors’ beautiful work, they wanted to give each shot time and space to breathe, lingering on the details and giving the overall film an almost dream-like quality. The music and editing certainly makes me drift off into a daydream and that’s exactly what they were going for! They like to film in a natural, unobtrusive way, and love exercising their creativity with styled shoots.
The cake by Cakes By Yolk was a three their buttercream cake with a slightly textured finish to echo the warehouse setting. It had a hazelnut and chocolate sponge with a fig and ricotta filling. It was decorated with wild grasses that imitated the floral hanging installation. Finished of with a touch of gold leaf for elegance.
Bringing each and every element together through the images was effortless, channeling the inspiration, mood, texture and style of each artist I wanted to create something that spoke to each and every one of and the shoot as a whole.
