There's nothing that screams Spring more than a tulip bouquet. And there's nothing that screams disco more than a pair of roller skates and glitter balls. Everything about this LGBTQ+ inspiration at Recommended venue, The Highfield House is vibrant, fun and utterly unique. As you know, we always want you to, do what makes you happy, wear what makes you feel like the best version of yourself, and fully embrace having your day, your way. Setting the tone for this retro day were stationery designs by Recommended suppliers, Luna and Sol Design, followed by balloon and glitter backdrops, neon signs and a dessert table full of goodies by Recommended caterers Baba Ganoush.

Pink and orange fun, retro LGBTQ+ wedding inspiration with roller skates, disco balls and a tulip bouquet.

At this stunning grade II listed Tudor mansion in the East Riding of Yorkshire, The Highfield House is a space perfect for those fun-filled, fabulous and funky weddings! I wanted to showcase how perfect Highfield is for the non-traditional weddings; the ones where couples are unafraid to go disco ball and colour crazy... and those who sometimes eat dessert first. Babaganoush supplying the treats!

Tulip Bouquet

There were absolutely no other stylists for my vision: the queen of sequins, Lunamoon Events! They nailed the set-up along with Flowerstyle Beverley who made and used meadow boxes from recycled pallets and dotted in the most beautiful calla lily plants along the aisle. Not to mention that tulip bouquet! Moononastick provided the most epic balloon arch to show two different aisle looks. We added Daydream Creative Studio’s mini banners, roller skates, neon signage by I Do Hire and 70s inspired stationery from Rock My Wedding Recommended suppliers, Luna & Sol Design.

Fashion And Beauty

Beth wore dresses supplied by Elizabeth Lucas. I used Vera Wang's short ballet style dress 'Maud' for its fun vibe to show off those roller skates! Then choosing 'Luana' by Willowby for its embroidered floral inserts that mimicked how the florals lined the aisle. I knew I wanted to infuse animal print so Georgia wore a Missguided suit along with her own sneaks and Docs, an epic floral suit and a more formal checkered grey for the ceremony. A pink veil, bow and headpieces were naturally needed! Charley, Hannah and I then went for a modern Twiggy inspired makeup and hair look.

The meaning of tulips is generally perfect love. More specifically red tulips mean true love.

For this shoot, I wanted to bring home that your wedding is just that; YOUR wedding. YOUR day. You can do pretty much whatever you want! Don’t be afraid to step outside of the box if that’s what your hearts desire! This includes (but is not limited to): celebrant lead weddings, orange rainbow cakes, pink veils, sparkly headpieces, leopard print suits, short dresses and oversized bows! Just do YOU. Young Hearts, Run Free!
