A rich and warm autumnal bridal shoot

21 Feb 2017

Oranges and succulents unite in this autumnal photo-shoot from a host of Norfolk suppliers - coordinated by The Tack Room, Norwich

What was the inspiration behind the shoot?

The inspiration for the shoot was the combination of orange tones and succulents. We then followed this theme through into the flowers, décor and cake design. Orange is often a colour brides struggle to style as it can be seen as quite a scary colour, so we wanted to show some inspiration of how you can achieve this without it turning into a dominant colour and clashing. Succulents are bang on trend for this year so were a perfect choice to add an edge to the softness of the flowers and bridal dresses and introduce a different texture.

Tell us a little bit about the venue and why it was chosen.

We chose Hockering House in Norwich because it is such a pretty building and has bags of character. The light in the hallway was a photographer’s dream and we used accent pieces of period furniture to juxtapose against the modernity of the succulents. Jemma from JMA Photography is very passionate about her art and the natural light complemented her style perfectly.

What did you choose for the flower arrangements?

The flowers were a combination of  orange, delicate peaches and subtle silver shades. Our florist, Constance Rose, got really creative and used protea, succulents, brunia, eucalyptus, eryngium, and a David Austin rose called Juliet and Kaaps brunia 'blushing bride’, to achieve a really textured look to the flower arrangements. The end result, although predominantly orange, still gave a soft, romantic, countryside feel.

What kind of look did you want to achieve with the make-up, hair and outfits for the brides?

We had a variety of bridal looks showcased by the very talented Amanda Steed and her team. There is a classic up-do with bold, dark eyes, luscious lashes and dramatic lips; a more natural, bohemian look with a foliage, entwined fishtail braid; and finally a loose, vintage curled hair style topped off with a stunning flower crown.

The dresses were exquisite, and came from Katrine Morgenson. They were a mixture of floaty, bohemian styles and more tailored, lace layered designs. Katrine also styled several of the looks with lace boleros to show how they could be made more demur for a church ceremony, or to even add extra warmth for spring weddings.

What was the thinking behind the décor for the shoot? How did you tie it all together?

The décor for the shoot was styled and provided by us at The Tack Room. We worked with the colour palette and style of Hockering House to enhance the look and add some additional creative flourishes. It was also important to use styling elements which were easily achievable for our brides such as the multi-purpose ladders and moss hoops. The flowers from Constance Rose were the key to tying the whole look together from the bridal gowns and the hair, to the décor and the cake.
