Today I am excited to share this vibrant colourful Kingfisher inspired bridal shoot.
An incredible collaborative team combined their creative super powers to create a truly magical wedding concept photographed at Nurstead Court, a beautiful relaxed country home in the heart of Kent.
Natasha of Pearline Events tells the story behind the shoot…
Our bride is called Melody.. she is a confident modern woman who enjoys history, period dramas and beautiful things.
She loves a pop of colour and has dreamed of getting married somewhere with outdoor space, as she loves nature.
She is a romantic, relaxed fun and a thinker.
The shoot is inspired by the bold colours in the Kingfisher bird.
There is only one UK species but many more worldwide, most of which are dry-land birds rather than waterside variety like the UK kingfisher.
The colour palette we wanted to use for the shoot based on the birds colouring was fuchsia, orange (russet) and shades of blue (navy and cobalt) with hints of cream.
These are strong vibrant colours, and a true reflection of our Brides confidence.
The shoot was at a beautiful relaxed country home in the heart of Kent, called Nurstead Court.
The spectacular floristry was by Floral Explosion, and the beautiful cake was The Little Sugar Box.
Hair and make up of our glamorous model Julie was by Brides by Aina.m.
We included balloon columns (from the lovely Glitzy Balloon Company) in the shoot, in vibrant colours to add a unique, creative and fun element.
Spring season 2019 trends will likely include strong, bold empowering colours that are uplifting, and playful yet still elegant without being overpowering.
The aim is to inspire brides who want to use touches of bolder colours in their wedding showing how colours can be incorporated effectively.
This should appeal to brides, who want an elegant, yet understated look but also the benefits of a relaxed, refined, country house.
Love how the team have embraced the bright colours and distinct markings of these beautiful birds and incorporated it into such an fabulous shoot.
The palette incorporates such vibrant shades that together are just breathtaking.
