Wes Anderson Wedding Inspiration at The Barn at Avington

Colourful Wes Anderson Wedding Inspiration…

Love Wes Anderson films? Well we have a treat fro you today!

Taking inspiration from his films The Grand Budapest Hotel and Moonrise Kingdom; photographer Kirsty Mackensie wanted to create a bridal shoot that reflected Wes Anderson’s colourful, quirky visual film style with a nod towards his offbeat humour. 

Together with wedding stylists The Wedding Spark, they created the perfect combination of colour, fun and cinematic style.

When Kirsty Mackenzie got in touch about organising a Wes Anderson inspired shoot, we leapt at the idea! Wes Anderson movies are just so iconic; the design, the detail, the off-the-wall atmosphere, and don’t get us started on the colours!  

Together we brainstormed our ideas and two films kept coming up, so we quickly decided we wanted to focus on the quirky romance of Moonrise Kingdom along with the colourful glamour of The Grand Budapest Hotel 

We’re not the only Wes Anderson fans in the wedding industry – far from it in fact! As we started approaching people about this shoot, we were met with a huge amount of enthusiasm, and the final team of suppliers shared our levels of excitement about all the little extra touches we had planned. The shoot was a total delight to work on as everyone

Fun and glittery cat-themed wedding

Kathryn and Darren’s wedding was a beautiful, relaxed day that ticked the number 1 wedding box: it was totally, unmistakably, 100% “them”. With Harry Potter references, appearances from their cat Beyonce, a glitter bar, and unicorn gin, it was a celebration of them as a couple. And that’s how weddings should be. More than that, they had a stunning explosion of flowers as their reception decor, and they had temporary tattoos of their face for all their guests to wear – total genius!

What was your favourite part of the day?

One of my favourite bits was when the dance floor was packed with everyone enjoying the band. Then suddenly Darren walked in with his face painted like a tiger (in reference to Kathryn’s Dad’s speech earlier in the day, where he said ‘a woman needs a tiger in the bedroom’) it made us all howl!

What was your favourite shot of the day, and why?

One of my favourite shots of the day is a fun photo of Kathryn & Darren with a cardboard cut-out of their cat Beyonce! As soon as I walked in and saw Beyonce, I knew I wanted to put her in one of the shots. Being a cat lady myself, I knew how much it would mean for
