I absolutely bloody love this shoot so much. Myself and Louise from One Stylish Day got together and created an epic Pinterest board with our ideas. Louise then curated the a kick ass mood board, sourced the stunning Garthmyl Hall and I sourced some incredible collaborators to work with on the shoot.
I shot this with my fabulous assistant Siobhan alongside The Mcgill Sisters filming. I love Siobhan and Sinead, they are coolest and so bloody creative! There film is incredible and put together seamlessly!
Garthmyl Hall is this gorgeous little hidden gem in the welsh country side. Stunning rooms, a picturesque secret garden, and the most adorable little white stone washed green house that is just perfect for intimate gatherings. Louise was so hands on and knew exactly what the look for each shoot would be and her styling was to die for. A a whirlwind of amazingness with blush candles in copper stands, cutlery to match, silk and linen flowing perfectly, hand died ribbons from Lancaster and Cornish and cut glass!
We had the most gorgeous dress selection from the beautiful E&W Couture! Tulle and silk skirts paired with gorgeous little camisoles and a knit cashmere sweater from Boden. Some cute blush shoes & a stunning Mocha pair that had an embellished feather up the side of each shoe from Emmy London.
Chloe Robinson Designs created floristry perfection with her immaculate green fingers. From beautiful blossom budded branches creating a focal point for the ceremony to the grey textured urns that decorated the table beautifully. Her work was freaking amazing! Blush roses, anemones, and blossoms, rich browns and greens creating a beautiful loose and flowing bouquet.
The cake, lollipops, shortbread and marshmallows from Marie Antoinette Cakes were divine. The bottom layer of the cake was a cement effect, the middle a soft blush with hand drawn calligraphy and the top layered with hand crafted sugar flowers. The Marshmallows were soft and fluffy and an array of flavours-not that I sat there scoffing them or anything. The lollipops each made with pretty little petals within each and so cool. The biscuits were delicious!
By Moon and Tide Calligraphy created the invitation suite using a beautifully textured banana leaf paper and a gorgeous hand drawn calligraphy in a deep pink ink, which tied in beautifully.
The amazing Emily on behalf of the award-winning Sonara Parker makeup did an incredible job creating a soft a dewy delicate look on Kayleigh. It was gorgeous! The hair was done by none other than Annie who can work wonders with hair of any length, creating soft curls, a beach wave and volumous pony and a gorgeous low bun. Kayleigh looked smoking!!!
Graceful, sophisticated, chic, subtle, romantic and feminine were the inspirational words behind RAW ROMANTICISM. Delicate knitwear, hand embellished tops, soft and flowing layers of tulle and silk. Effortless waves scooped into simple and stunning styles. A delicate and dewy make up look. An abundance of rich greens, blush roses, anemones, and sweet buds, creating beautiful loose and flowing blooms. An exquisite array of silks, fabrics and ribbons. Perfectly crafted cakes. Treats that melt in the mouth. Utterly divine textured paper with gorgeous hand drawn calligraphy. Each one a colour palette of cool neutral tones, rich greens, a soft grey and a touch of blush. All styled to utter perfection.
