Incredible Flower filled Staircase at Aynhoe Park – Whimsical Wedding Inspiration

Whimsical Bridal Style…

Today I’m finally sharing with you one of my favourite Mr & Mrs Unique shoots to date; an amazing flower filled, whimsical bridal shoot working alongside an incredible team within the majestically unique surroundings of Aynhoe Park.

The initial idea was that I wanted to create an incredible floral installation up Aynhoe Park’s majestic staircase, which has an abundance of glorious natural light. When Alex from The Bijou Bride and Lizzie from Early Hours London came on board, the idea developed into a gorgeous Sleeping Beuaty themed shoot. Similar to the fairytale where she took a bite into a poisoned apple; our beautiful brides would take a bite out of a sweet peach and then things would take a darker turn. We would create these two worlds; one all soft, feminine and romantic then as you walked up the stairs the vibe become more darker and sexier.

The amazing Early Hours London team was in charge of the flowers for this installation and decorated the bottom of the staircase with hydrangeas, teal coloured asparagus ferns, miniature balloon balls from Bubblegum Balloons team and tall vases filled with peaches and apples.

Behind the Scenes… Floral Staircase Shoot

What goes on behind the scenes…

Last year, Mr & Mrs Unique gathered some incredible wedding suppliers and headed back to the amazing Aynhoe Park for one of our biggest shoots to date… Sleeping Beauty- The Floral Staircase.

The idea was to fill a staircase with the most beautiful blooms and as Aynhoe Park has one of the most spectacular, light filled, sweeping staircases; it just had to be done there!

With help from Alex from The Bijou Bride, a leading UK wedding stylist & planner we were able to create a high fashion, modern bridal take on the classic Sleeping Beauty tale within the majestically unique surroundings.

Alex tells us more about the shoot ‘It was a shoot of two halves, the first – dreamy and care free whilst the second was much darker as we interpreted the spell of sleep taking hold.

In terms of styling the first look was in every essence soft, pretty and feminine playing with pale pink and peach tones. Romantically luxurious lace appliqué gowns mirrored the amazing floral installation.  Make up was minimal and teamed with delicate plaits for a very youthful look.
