An autumnal wedding shoot in Shropshire

10 Oct 2019

Offering an alternative take on an autumn wedding theme, the soft colour scheme of this styled shoot really shines through

Tanya Flannagan Photography co-ordinated this Shopshire wedding shoot at Delbury Hall which showcases an autumn wedding theme in a colour palette that is not often considered. Favouring soft, pastel shades over rich and deep tones, this shoot celebrates the joys of the season.

What was the inspiration behind the shoot?

The inspiration for this shoot was the autumnal colours and warmth that the season brings. With pretty corals and dusky blues, these are some of the most popular colours for weddings right now which works perfectly with my light and airy photography style. I decided that I wanted the shoot to be warm and elegant, yet pretty and relaxed too.

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

When I visited Delbury Hall previously, I knew this would be the perfect place to showcase an autumnal wedding shoot. The house is a gorgeous backdrop in its own right, with the autumn leaves all over the house that really emphasising the seasonal feel I wanted to convey. The Coach House is perfect for the wedding breakfast and party, and ideal for a banquet-style feast which is what we went for.

What did you choose for the flower arrangements?

Combined with the softer tones of champagne in the bridal accessories, sunset-inspired florals were chosen as they added the colour we wanted for the autumnal feel. Along with lots of eucalyptus foliage for the banquet table, the centrepieces were full of greenery and seasonal flowers such as roses, dahlias and delphiniums. Single stems of berries added a pop of colour to spread the autumn atmosphere across the tables, completing the look.

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

For the suit, we went with a brown tweed and for the dresses, we chose a gown in a gorgeous mocha and a white fitted style. All very distinctive and incredibly stylish. We mixed it up a little with a bespoke jacket too, as everyone likes to have something different on their wedding day – this offered a fun element.

We also kept in mind the colours for next year's wedding trends. So to go with the mocha dress, we styled the shoot with champagne detailing in the bridal accessories and the shoes. These neutral tones also served to complement the colourful bridal bouquet. 

The hairstylist created a sophisticated and pretty plait with a few loose strands for a whimsical look. The make-up artist used a subtle and softer colour palette to finish the look.

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

The décor and details all emphasised the rustic yet elegant feel. Bare wooden tables with greenery is a simple and elegant look and we decorated these with gorgeous candelabras and gold cutlery - not to mention the pretty gold rimmed plates and glasses, which really set the tone. The macramé backdrop was a standout piece, and is something that can add the wow factor to any wedding.

The stationery really brought the range of colours together. Simple, pretty and soft, the colour palette is very pleasing on the eye.
