Connection is what makes life worth the adventure; sharing those moments, big and small with each other, and this beautiful coastal elopement inspiration shoot captures that intimacy, that spark, that passion.
The styling for this shoot was based on intertwining elements of the coast and woodland.
The windblown, wild and free setting compliments the overall vibe for the shoot which was relaxed, atmospheric and romantic.
Images were captured by Liberty Pearl Photography, and the concept was brought together by an incredible creative team.
New Barton Barns is nestled amongst beautiful farm land, woodlands and the coast.
With rustic oak beams, mellow stone walls and a beautiful meadow its sits on the cliff top with breathtaking views overlooking the River Yealm and sea beyond.
Taking inspiration from these incredible surroundings I wanted to create a tablescape that had a natural minimilisic feel as well as adding luxurious touches.
We used a palette of blues and silvers throughout the styling, and mixed in a few deeper, richer colours to add contrast and texture.
Handmade paper and a touch of gold foil gave the stationery a fine art look.
Taking inspiration from the sea and painting with watercolours gave texture and depth to the design which was finished off perfectly with some classic calligraphy for a whimsical romantic feel.
Creative inspiration for the floral design came from an idea n idea of creating a real intimacy to the elopement.
Using a very warm , evocative set of rooms and the wild openness we created something textured , very feminine and soft
The softness of foliages found near the coastline and the billowing cloud forms that are so much part of this environment provided inspiration for the tablescape.
For such private intimate moments it felt right to use gentle fine and billowing shapes to create closeness.
Using flora that is seasonal, local and avoiding the use of plastic is a great opportunity to demonstrate you can create something stunning , poetic and still tick the ethical box.
The beautiful coastal inspired jewellery – rings and cufflinks were just perfect for this shoot, with the designs being inspired by the coast.
We wanted every item on the shoot to reflect the beautiful setting we were immersed in.
Our beautiful wedding dresses were as free spirited as we could find, with stunning layers that blew freely in the forceful coastal winds! They featured a hint of colour that could appeal to the non traditional bride.
Hair and Make Up
