We do love an inspiration shoot where white and greens take centre stage. Especially when they are jazzed up with a dash of metallics for good measure. This shoot is stylish, modern and very, very pinnable. The styling is by the lovely Hollie from Daisy Says I Do, one of our recommended suppliers, who is amazing to work with, as well as having a fabulous eye. The stunning venue, Narborough Hall Gardens is also one of our recommended venues. If you haven't come across them before, do check them out - their flower beds are second to none! Enjoy this shoot lovelies, it's fresh and fun and there's a table plan of absolutely epic-ness to swoon over too!

The Shoot

Hollie from Daisy Says I Do: When the crazily talented Tatum Reid invites you to style a photoshoot for her there is clearly only one answer! I’m obsessed with her contemporary, fresh style and her love of natural light is clear in the images she produces. We decided on an all-white shoot which I was so excited by and could instantly start picturing a design and style; sleek lines softened with luxurious texture. When creating simplicity, harmonising all the different elements can be difficult and coordination with all the suppliers involved is key. Whilst hinting at Hollywood glamour in our bride’s style, the venue styling remained fresh and contemporary to compliment it.

The Venue

Narborough Hall Gardens created a beautiful backdrop to the shoot, unfortunately the weather wasn’t quite so beautiful and after my props almost flew into the lake and the skies opened we made a run for the Hall. The grand scale of Narborough Hall gave another dimension to our shoot and although it hadn’t been our first plan it was just as stunning as the outside landscape.

The Decor

The tablescape was created using a range of different shaped and sized copper terrariums which created bold clean lines softened by beautiful all-white flower and greenery arrangements by The Little Flower Shop. The terrariums and copper candlesticks added a geometric theme and contrasted against the white linen runner that overlayed a rose gold floor lengthened sequin table cloth. Sequin table cloths are beautiful but can swamp a table, by adding a white runner the surface of the tablecloth doesn’t dominate the style. The gold rimmed white crockery and wooden handled cutlery created a sleek but natural feel; completed with white linen serviettes trimmed with burlap and lace and topped with a copper tipped white feather. Wonderful Wonky Weddings created bold monochrome stationery and table plan with rose gold heart accents. I dressed the chairs in our delicate lace chair caps with tasselled fringe and The Little Flower Shop added fresh green foliage and white flower arrangements to complete the look.

The Cake

Emma from Buns of Fun created a beautiful white two tiered cake with fragments that echoed the copper geometric shapes of the terrariums and was finished with flowers. Placed on a wooden chest of drawers for contrast and surrounded by terrariums and candles, the cake looked too good to eat!

The Fashion

Our gorgeous model Alisha Whitworth looked elegant in a strapless figure skimming gown called 'Jessie' by Sassi Holford provided by Victoria from The Bottom Drawer Bridal, Flamingo Hair Styling created stunning soft sculptured curls and along with the silhouette of the dress were reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour. Bridal makeup was created by Makeup by Amanda Steed which supported the simple yet glamorous style. The Little Flower Shop created a beautiful fresh organic bouquet of mixed large white flowers and fine leaves, its boldness and subtlety contrasted and supported the strong silhouette and softness of the fabric of the dress. Bruno Bonfim looked polished and suave in his black tuxedo, crisp white shirt and bow tie from Goddards again reflected back to a vintage era in style but with button hole that mirrored the bouquet adding a contemporary edge.

The Photography

Tatum, as always was calm and creative even during the crazy weather changes, she naturally puts everyone who works with her at ease. I’m sure that everyone will love the images she has produced as much as I do!
