STYLED SHOOT: The Other Space

This amazing shoot came out of the creative hands of creative director Erin Balfour of Way Out Weddings and stylist Lisa Johnson of Carmela Weddings.

As Erin says it all began with the ICETANK – a venue that reminded her of Stanley Kubrick’s Space Odyssey 2001 and A Clockwork Orange. Then it all fell into place – white futuristic styling, visors made of Perspex, reflective metal, bursts of orange, bridal jumpsuit and a cape. Brides not of this world – hence ‘The Other Space’.

You can read more about the creative process from all the amazing suppliers (that we listed below) on Erin’s wedding blog – Way Out Wedding.

FRIDAY FAVOURITES: Garden wedding

 

The weather here in London may not spoil us these days but beautiful blooms and greens getting nice and juicy get us in the summer mood! So we’re thinking about garden weddings with games and Pimm’s.

FRIDAY FAVOURITES: Eucalyptus !

Foliage is all the rage right now! And we love it too.

Eucalyptus brings some kind of freshness and lightness to decoration and is fantastic not only for use in a bouquet but in the venue as well. Take a look at some eucalyptus prettiness we found.

STYLED SHOOT: Fun Brighton shoot with two brides

Today we’d like to share with you a lovely styled shoot sent to us by MODE Bridal Shop in Hove. They organised a lovely shoot embracing Brighton. Just look at these lovely brides!

Brighton is known for its cosmopolitan lifestyle and openness to same sex couples. As such we wanted to create something that embraces Brighton’s vibe and inspires our brides to celebrate their love in style whilst having lots of fun. It was very important for the shoot to have a young, fun and vibrant feel, whilst still retaining opulent touches. 

We chose Brighton Harbour Hotel which is one of Brighton’s most luxury wedding venues right on the seafront with young and quirky feel.  The brides wore gorgeous bridal separates by Lambert Creations from our boutique MODE Bridal. These were a great reflection of girls’ personalities and show that you can look gorgeous and have a comfortable stroll on the beach in your dress. Hair (Cove Hair Brigton) and make up (Louise Medhurst) were all about highlighting the natural beauty of our brides; and real flowers seemed a perfect choice for the theme. We chose some fun colours for our stationary provided by Lisa Loves Design depicting Brighton’s most iconic sights of course. The vintage candle holders and glass jars provided by Sorrell and Steve were a perfect alternative to the traditional floral décor. Bridal bouquets were created by the very talented Bettie Rose Flowers and were all about a play with bold colours and shapes. The cake by Tarnya Senior was a delicious masterpiece showcasing famous Bridgton Bandstand. All of this was brought together by a fabulous photographer Charlotte Rawles, who captured the spirit of the shoot beautifully. We had so much fun working together and hope that you enjoy the photos as much as we do.
