80’s Wedding Inspiration…

Over to the creative team to tell us more…

80’s Obsessions…

A shared obsession for all things 80’s was the catalyst for this styled shoot at the awesome Giraffe Shed, which is owned by the equally awesome Hannah from Rocksalt Photography. After some back and forth over our Instagram DM’s, we discovered a shared affinity for TV series like Glow & Pose, which seem to have triggered an 80’s renaissance recently. After a meeting back in May, we gathered inspo, sourced some dope garments & props, and I created new tulle accessories and veils in a flurry of inspiration.

We wanted to go all out with accessories, focusing on statement pieces, like huge tulle bows and offbeat veils with pops of colour and print. 80’s weddings may have a connotation with bad taste and all things naff – but we wanted to make the best of the decade and pay homage to the epic fashion, ethos, and attitude that the 1980s evoke. This shoot took us from girly pageant queens

Mystical, Latin American Bridal Shoot Inspired by Madonna…

Moody, Vintage Madonna Vibes…

Today’s inspiration is brought to us by Lauren from French Made Cakes and a fantastic team of creative wedding suppliers. The shoot was inspired by Latin American and Andalusian cultures focusing on the religious and symbolic importance of Madonna.

We hand over to the team to talk more in-depth about what inspired this mystical, moody shoot…

This bridal inspiration shoot took place at the stunning Ringshall Grange in Suffolk, England. We imagined a solemn, passionate, devoted bride awaiting her husband to be. The colour palette dominated by purples (majestic colour that used be reserved for royalty and church), deep red, black and gold suggested a darker and moodier feel for the styling and stunning photography by Joanna from Joasis Photography.

The thought process behind the stationery taken directly from the ‘crying Madonna’ theme. Lou from Beyond Vintage pulled red out from the colour palette and experimented with watercolour, almost like blood stained teardrops onto the paper. Mixed with complimenting calligraphy and text fonts to complete the collection. Finished with hand dyed silk ribbon and a wax seal.
