Sophie Taylor…

As a wedding stylist you seek inspiration from everything and anything. A photoshoot in a magazine, an Instagram post, a piece of art on a museum visit or a film you may have watched.

For this styled shoot at Aynhoe Park I was inspired by a beautiful emerald green, chinoiserie 3 piece sofa that my partner James had bought. This beautiful piece of furniture in carved wood and gorgeous hand painted detail, inspired me to explore a wedding theme based around the colours, flowers and use of birds.

Esther from Rebel and the Rose was keen to create the look with me. I really wanted to create something up the stairs as a lead into our stunning Orangery. I loved her suggestion of making a wild, overgrown floral archway using lots of greenery alongside rose pink to deep fuchsia peonies, purple delphiniums, open blush roses and white lilacs.

I used birds we had from around the house and of course our A Modern Grand Tour feather lamps to add the depth to our entrance; playful hints of our theme.

To tie the theme together the dress was of course extremely important. For me it had to be Hermoine De Paula; her needlework and beautiful floral details was just like the archway flowers… she could have almost painted on the flowers in thread!

For the table setting I wanted to create something untraditional. French style chairs were paired against a textured pink cloth and instead of having a large floral installation down the centre, we decided upon long floral installations that sat parallel to the table and chairs. This helped frame the table and provided a beautiful walkway to guests seats; creating the illusion they were sat between flowerbeds.
