Today I am excited to share some incredible vibrant and edgy neon wedding inspiration packed with attitude and personality.
Images were captured by Laura of Freeformimages Photography with the collaboration of an incredible creative team.
Laura says of the shoot…
Neon Dreams was the brainchild of myself and a fantastic team of Devon & Cornish suppliers.
We wanted to create a romantic, yet cool, rock & roll chic style within a unique and bespoke venue which lent itself to this incredible neon wedding inspiration shoot.
It was about being bold with flamboyant styling to truly make a strong statement.
An Mor Hotel, a real hidden gem in the Cornish Seaside town of Bude, unique and quirky, with its very own gin bar.
The hotel decor having retro themed wall dressings and eclectic features set the ideal backdrop for our themed styling.
Using iridescent fabrics to offset exciting walls and neon lighting to set the mood it made the styling a joy to do!
The colourful palette of props, historical photos and paintings around the hotel allowed us to capture, not just vibrant colours but character with a slight edge.
The classic shape of the stationery by Clare’s Wedding Creations was chosen as it complimented the mirror that displayed the table plan from here the shape was then used to create the place settings and the colours chosen complimented the neon pinks and purples bringing everything together.
The first dress worn by the model, “Cassandra”, takes sophisticated glam to a whole new level.
The extravagantly beaded bodice paves the way to perfection! This long sleeve ballgown by Casablanca Bridal is a bona fide show-stopper, the dramatically sleek satin skirt reflecting light and cascading effortlessly from the natural waistline.
This jaw-dropping gown provides a removable lining option, for the most opulent and versatile wedding day look.
The second gown has glittering rhinestones that create lines throughout. “Bria” from the belt at the waist, to the V-shaped linings of the front, back and underarm panels of the bodice and lace applique’s sprinkle across the hemline of the dreamy soft tulle skirt, matching the lace on the fully lined front and illusion back of the bodice, again by Casablanca Bridal.
The leather jacket by Sammy Lea’s Retro Emporium was inspired by the current neon lights trend. It’s groundbreaking in the UK as no other UK based supplier is yet offering jackets that are both lit and painted.
The bridal accessories by Hey Jules give a nod to that rock chick look, whilst still remaining ‘bridal’.
The dark leaf hair comb gave the perfect backdrop to sparkling Swarovski set crystals, small ivory pearls and a few deep pink crystals to add that neon glow.
I love the positioning of the comb and how well it complements the hairstyle and bridal make up created.
The cuff was designed to echo the organic leaf patterns in the dress and bring out those deeper colours that tie the jacket, headpiece and shoes altogether, again with that touch of pink to make it pop.
The bouquet and venue flowers by Petal and Posie were a mix of beautiful shocking pink and dark red roses, bright pink Calla lilies, purple Clematis and dark red Gemini. Who doesn’t love a gorgeous bit of colour clash?
The cake by Claire’s Sweet Temptations was inspired by the colours and vibe of An Mor with a mix of edible watercolour painting, vibrant, blended colours, and classic sugar flowers.
The catering by Jax’s Cakes ‘n’ Bakes was inspired by the gin bar. We asked that a gin inspired high tea and something different was created.
From gin and tonic scones, gin cupcakes, gin mousse shots, macaroons chocolate ganache or gin buttercream, chocolate-coated strawberries and open sandwiches.
Thank you so much to Laura and the team for sharing this amazing neon wedding inspiration shoot.
So if you are a non conformist planning a quirky day with colour explosions and plenty of attitude then these incredible ideas are for you!
