Today I am thrilled to share this striking Autumnal Wedding Styled Shoot with vibrant jewel tones.
Images were captured by Mintt Photography, and co-ordinated by Hallmark Events and Wedding Styling by Davina Simone with the collaboration of a fabulous creative team.
I hand over to Davina of Hallmark Styling to tell you about the shoot…
Seasonal changes and beautiful Autumn colours and textures were the inspiration for this Autumn Beauty Wedding styled shoot.
The layers of leaves and the mixtures of dark and bold colours we experience in this season inspired us to create a story of a couple brought together by their love of nature.
Surrounded by colours of the changing leaves and lisitening to beautiful bird song we curated an autuminal tablescape.
The autuminal styling exudes elegance which can be recreated by any couple planning their wedding.
The table linen fabrics used were two toned taffeta. Flowers brought the colours together with the matching bespoke stationery created by Love Keewi.
Mintt Photography captured the dreamy romance of the couple along with the striking tones of the orange Naomi roses reminiscent of the colour of fallen leaves, deep burgundy chrysanthemums and red roses in the large centrepiece, stem centrepieces and the brides fresh flower bouquet finished with gold satin ribbons.
We wanted to inspire couples to think of using a dark palette, rich tones and quality fabrics and flowers.
We used gold cutlery along with hammered gold bowls to accent the table for a contrasting colour and added a plum Lisianthus flower to each table setting as a surprise detail. Having small unexpected details, displays personality and a uniquness which guests find interesting.
The bridal look was kept soft with natural toned makeup and bronzer used to highlight her cheekbones. Natural afro hair was styled in a large braid by Hair and makeup artist Judith of Jayspriestige.
The bridal gown was designed with beautiful lace, applique details, and sweetheart neckline to complete this elegant look.
