A vintage wedding shoot in Warwick

15 Feb 2019

Celebrating the free-spirited bride, a trio of wedding suppliers set about creating a photo shoot with vintage touches

Three Warwickshire-based businesswomen combined their talents to create a vintage wedding shoot at a local venue. Charlotte Wright Photography, Elizabeth Ayers Bridal and Amanda Luther Floral Designer tell us more...

What was the inspiration behind the shoot?

Amanda: I’m inspired creatively by the countryside and the seasons.In the autumn the light is amazing and soft, flowers and foliage in the garden start to change, colours become muted and dappled. It's as though the landscape is preparing to close down for the winter. I wanted to incorporate that feel into the floral designs; to create a fantastic secret world, lost and then rediscovered.

Charlotte: The inspiration for me was to really have a chance to ‘play’. I have never done a wedding photo shoot before; I have only ever done real weddings. So it was so exciting for me to be able to work with these fabulous people, products and of course, Olivia - the model.

Elizabeth: The inspiration behind the shoot was to bring together three of the key suppliers for a bride's big day. The three of us share a free-spirited approach to weddings, where the day is about being relaxed, informal and breaking the boundaries of formality.

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

Amanda: I first came to know Longbourn Barn in Warwick in the summer when I was asked to do the  wedding flowers for a lovely couple that had their wedding reception there. It is a hidden gem, very natural and not ‘staged’ at all. You feel you can really make it your own for that special day and when it comes to designing flowers, it's a fabulous blank canvas.

Elizabeth: It is in natural surroundings with rustic charm and we had the freedom to create the vintage look we wanted to achieve.

What did you choose for the flower arrangements?

Amanda: I always start designing with seasonal choices. The countryside around me will spark an idea. Looking around my garden I then let what's growing lead the way, so I used a lot of herbs, berries, foliage, clematis and twigs. To complement that I used soft tones of hydrangea, ranunculus and to bring in the romance of a wedding, lots of roses.There were apples, eucalyptus, fern, bouvardia, oak ,moss and lots more in there too. Bringing in the old car, wild hanging willow, scattered leaves and foliage garlands helped to pull it all together.

What kind of look did you want to achieve with the outfits for the bride?

Elizabeth:The dresses I chose to use were by Marylise and Rembo Styling. These dresses are in contrast to the heavily structured dresses of many high street mainstream designers. The soft chiffons and crepe fabrics flow and drape to create feminine, romantic and ethereal wedding dresses. It’s all about the movement and the emotional connection with these style of dresses. Charlotte and Amanda were perfect to do the flowers and photography as we all sing off the same page. Freedom of spirit, which I feel is echoed in many of today’s modern brides.
