Festive Rainbow Wedding Inspiration at The Barn in Avington

Festive Rainbow Wedding Inspiration…

With Christmas just around the corner (seriously where has this year gone?) we have a bright rainbow festive shoot to share with you today.

The team behind the inspiration wanted to show that you didn’t have to base your styling around traditional Christmas colours and themes. Instead they focused on colourful wedding props including mismatched painted chairs, a Christmas tree ceremony teepee, glitter cakes and lots of rainbow pom poms. Over to Beth from Beth A Weddings to tell us more…

The inspiration for the shoot came from our love of the 2018 rainbow trend. We love being bright and bold and felt that the trend should continue as it gets cold. Christmas should be celebrated in the most colourful way possible. Too often couples are encouraged to go for cool blues or festive reds and greens, but if we can be unique in the summer then why not embrace colour for winter too.  

The details on the table were the most fun to style. Matching Christmas decorations to our rainbow chairs and place settings led to me being totally surrounded by glitter and nostalgia. It’s a great favour idea for winter weddings as it’ll bring back happy memories each year you hang it on the tree.

Feeling inspired by recording artist Melanie Martinez and an art mural on a semi-busy street, I wanted to do something super colorful, fun, and with a hint of child-like nostalgia (who doesn’t remember trying their best to blow the biggest bubble?). Eastern Market was the perfect location for this as it houses street art from various talents around the country. Due to the area we were able to play with loads of colors and textures which made for something fun and something to remember.

Would you believe that I found these amazing vendors via a Facebook group and Instagram?!

Olivia from Copper + Sage Collective created a beautiful bouquet beyond what I could’ve imaged. Using silk flowers and feathers she created pure art with various shades of pinks, red, and a hint of blue here and there. One of my favorite things about her bouquet is you can easily keep it as a keepsake, turn them into a family heirloom, or repurpose them.

Colourful + edgy festival wedding inspiration at the UK’s hottest new venue The Giraffe Shed

Neon, glitter and colour for a festival wedding…

Ok, we don’t use those words lightly, but The Giraffe Shed really needs to be on your radar, and then on your ‘to book’ list, pronto. It’s a dream festival wedding location with rainbow walls, gritty industrial decor and NEON (the perk of the venue being owned by a phtoographer is incredible light)! Team this with photography and creative direction from Jade Maguire and Rachael from The Burtons, and some breathtaking couple styles (bridal fedoras are BACK!), and you get absolute festival wedding magic. Take it away, ladies…

“Every once in a while you live your dream, a real dream, a dream that makes your heart sing, the butterflies in your stomach dance and you leave feeling like you’re floating on air… well this is exactly how I felt! On seeing the pink wall that Hannah had created, the first style that sprang to our mind was colour, and what better way to use colour than a dramatic festival theme?”

Organic, Minimal Wedding Inspiration for the Modern Bride

Beautiful backdrops and muted colour palettes…

Can you hear that sound? It’s the sound of us totally hyperventilating over this flawless styled shoot we’ve got for you today. It’s a stunning beauty editorial that provides a perfect antidote to a sometimes crazy, sometimes cluttered wedding industry. It’s breathtaking (told you, I’m hyperventilating over here), elegant, delicate and serene whilst also packing a MEGA styling punch.

“I think what makes this shoot so unique is mostly the way the materials were used – bringing nature indoors, creating minimal, tonal backdrops, hand-painting florals and using a model who is beautiful inside and out.” photographer Kaley from Kaley from Kansas explains.

About those minimal, tonal backdrops: “I went to a small shop south of the city and found amazing fabrics that I knew would work well in this bright, minimal space and really flow with the organic, freeing nature of the shoot.” They were then attached loosely to the wall, where they created a bold block backdrop whilst still maintaining all-important fluidity and movement. The muted tones and organic outlines blended seamlessly into The Cottage Rose’s stunning floral elements. Ferrell used neutral tones and divine fluffy textures to add depth without overpowering the beautiful simplicity of the shoot.
