An autumnal boho wedding shoot in Scotland

19 Nov 2019

Shot in Inverurie, this boho wedding shoot showcases the indoor and outdoor spaces of its 18th century venue

Abi Clarke of AC Weddings & Events tells us more about this styled shoot in Scotland. 

What was the inspiration behind the shoot?

For this shoot, I chose an autumn theme so opted for colours such as pumpkin orange, mustard yellow and natural greens.

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

I chose Thainstone House for its history as the house dates back to the 18th century. It is a grand private home but is also a beloved Aberdeenshire landmark. It is set among 44 acres of woodland and parkland, creating a beautiful setting for photographs.

What did you choose for the flower arrangements?

We chose locally grown dahlias and zinnias alongside homegrown foliage and lavender, and lots of other textural flora.

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

For the model, I wanted to create a boho wedding style. As most of the photographs were outside, I wanted to capture that enchanted woodland look. Make-up and hair were kept soft and a boho-style wedding dress was chosen.

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

For the interior shots, I wanted to put together a mock scene of a dinner table so using china and glassware from Peony & Willow China Hire and décor from Fairytale Events. We also added candles to give that romantic feel.
