Today I am thrilled to share a gorgeous geometric inspired wedding styled shoot at the Pumping House in Ollerton with natural and botanical tones.
Images were captured by Gina Fernandes Photography alongside the creativity of a fabulous collaborative team.
Gina says of the shoot…
I was super excited to be part of the magnificent creative team brought together and directed by Jo Greenfield & Jenny Appleton (‘The Alternatives’) at the Pumping House in Ollerton, Nottinghamshire.
I didn’t know what excited me more – meeting Jo & Jenny, a geometric inspired wedding, or photographing at this awesome grade 2 listed building
The Pumping House with its pretty red bricks is an exclusive wedding venue in Ollerton, set by Sherwood Forest.
It is pretty much wall to wall large windows to the sides and above, and has an abundance of rooms in the building.
Each have each been decorated with vintage and quirky elements which allows for unique wedding photographs. The Pumping house red-bricked building is set in the middle of Sherwood Forest allowing for more opportunities to create beautiful wedding photographs outside too.
The venue not only have a suite to get ready in but also a kitchen and dining room, giving you plenty room for all those getting ready to spread out and relax in.
Overall it was the perfect place to create a trendy wedding look with the use of geometric patterns giving a bit of an industrial touch as well creating a contrast of the modern feel in a historic wedding venue.
Geometric inspired wedding stationery (provided by Chloe Ainsley Creative), Venue decor and props (provided by ‘Save the Date Event Stylist, ‘Bramblesky’ & ‘Raspberry Toast) and jewellery (provided by ‘Geo Attic & ‘The Lucky Sixpence’), really brought the theme together.
Along with neutral and crisp greens, whites and copper toned floral decor from ‘All bunched up’ to suit the colours of the venue and theme.
The geometric décor featuring hexagonal backdrops, copper hoops and hexagonal stands were all provided by Kate of ‘Bramblesky’.
The floral décor was provided by Kathy Johnson of ‘All Bunched Up’. Knowing the distinct style of the wedding dress by Coop couture, Kathy created a bouquet that was simple with clean lines against different textures.
The crispness of the white and greens were brought together by using warming Magnolia.
Kathy knew that the caramel brown matt textured Magnolia leaves would go well with the metallic and the glossy greens would continue the modern crisp feel.
Kathy finished off the bouquet by creating a flowing tied bouquet to keep it clean looking.
She complimented the metallic, simple straight lines and modern angles with the tropical leaves of Phalaenopsis because of their “beautiful curves.”
A simple wedding cake also becomes instantly couture with a simple geometric touch added to it. Lorien Storey of Storeybook Wedding Cakes provided a marble finished cake.
She felt that “marble and geometric go together like milk and cookies”. She provided a main centrepiece cake and two smaller cakes which were framed within geometric stands from Bramblesky.
She also made hexagonal marble biscuits with gold leaf accents, cake pops on glittery forks, macarons, chocolate gems and pyramids. All of which were designed and coloured to fit the theme perfectly, tasting delicious too!
And whilst on the topic of food, the cheese board spread provided by Fig & Ginger was also divine, and perfect for guests to nibble on whilst they mingle.
Fig and Ginger also provided breakfast brunch items which is a must for the ‘getting ready’ party every bride and groom has before they say ‘I do’.
Even fashion had gone geometric. The model wore a dress by Gracie Cooper of Coop Couture, a silk knitted wedding dress complete with a cape.
The art deco inspired shoes were provided by Rachel Simpson. Again, totally on trend, adhering to the theme and very elegant.
Both the dress and the shoes with its subtle geometric pattern became alive with all the surrounding geometric shapes, patterns and vintage décor of the Pumping House.
Make up and hair to compliment were provided by Kelly Warner, keeping on theme with elegant, natural make up and a trendy braided up-do which showed off the geometric hair piece perfectly.
