Today I am excited to share an incredible vibrant and contemporary colourpop wedding inspiration styled shoot at the beautiful Tawstock Court.
Images were captured by Freeformimages Photography with the collaboration of an incredible creative team.
Tawstock Court, is an 18th century manor house set in 32 acres of beautiful grounds and woodlands in North Devon and was the setting to the shoot
The Bridal Look
The feminine floral print high/low gown was from the Signature Collection by Victoria Kay, perfect for showing off your shoes, and Irregular Choice’s Bridal designs never disappoint!
We also had a champagne Satin gown modelled by Emily with a beautiful lace beaded bodice and trellis sparkle sleeves.
The box pleating on the skirt is finished with a beautiful bow.
From this years Enchanted Collection by Victoria Kay, Ella is a fun full sleeved sweetheart high/low gown and this was modelled by Sian.
The lace back is finished with a beautiful button detail.
Leona by Casablanca Bridal is a georgette princess seamed fit and flare gown with a beaded cape
The denim jackets, painted by Sammy Lea’s Retro Emporium bought the bright theme colours through to the bridal wear and added a contemporary twist to the dress styling.
The bridal hair and make up was based on the design of the headpieces, style of the dress and model’s hair.
Styles ranged from soft and romantic to edgy and sharp, but with a commercial slant. Hair colours contrasted against headpieces to show them off to best advantage.
The make up had a flawless base of airbrush makeup giving the skin a natural finish.
Brighter pinks on the lips, with plum and coral hues, helped to really incorporate the colour pop theme!
Accessories for our colourpop wedding shoot were created by Hey Jules.
The gold leaf crown with tendrils of tiny flowers in turquoise, coral and pale pink were perfect for adding a touch of drama, yet still remaining pretty, feminine and bridal.
The other headpiece consisted of vintage elements and gave the most beautiful, glimmering, pastel-colour sparkle.
We also used some soft floral pieces in this shoot, the pink Serenity and aqua Zelenka petal pieces added a further touch of colour and sparkle to the day!
The final finishing touch of jewellery were an antique pink Swarovski crystal heart necklace and earring set, and a turquoise framed glass necklace and earring set which both reflected the light and provided that lovely pop of colour!
Why stop with one colour, when we can use them all? This was the mantra of Julia of Popsqueak Children’s Wear ” to find a lovely bright and vibrant fabric encompassing all the shades from the colour palette.”
Creating reversible jackets, sashes, bags and hair pieces, these complimented the white cotton dresses made in a Rose and Hubble print, giving an understated charm.
Whilst it is probably easier to create flower girl dresses from synthetic fabrics such as tulle and polyester, “I prefer to use cottons and silks which are less harmful on the environment. I also wanted to show that using natural fabrics can still be bright and vibrant and comfortable for little ones to wear all day and night.”
The Wedding Ceremony is at the heart of the day, and our celebrant Nixie, who wore bright pink also created a symbolic ‘Sand Ceremony’, and a plaited a multi ribbon ‘Hand Fasting’ cord.
Lastly another symbolic idea was to ‘Jump the Broomstick’ into married life over a “beesom broom that I created using bright dogwood stems on a hazel broomstick and wrapped with ribbons too!
We used colours to compliment the yellow walls, of bright turquoise and shades of pink through all the decor highlighted in the ribbons, table decorations and balloons.
Together everything popped with the natural sun light that flooded the venue.
Using bold colours and a mix of fresh, bright Gemini daisies and roses (including the fabulous coral ‘Miss Piggy’)
For stationery used the idea of balloons and hot air balloons in particular with the colour palette helping to co-ordinate with the rest of the suppliers.
Dessert Table and Cake
A selection of meringues, cake pops, cookies with personalised messages and chocolate covered pretzels adorned the sweet table.
The table was then styled with matching sweets and a gorgeous wedding cake – the centre-piece, just perfect for your guests to help themselves to during your evening.
The venues morning room has bursts of bright yellow and when the sun streams through the windows it radiates such a happy vibe, hence we wanted to show just how much colour can enhance any wedding and create an amazing atmosphere.
