Dutch Masters Wedding Inspiration

Hi all,

So we have been waiting for this stunning shoot to appear on Whimsical Wedding Wonderland so we can pop it up on our blog and share these awesome pics with you then over the weekend our wish came true and here they are!

This shoot was the brain child of our very own Queen T who took inspiration from some of her favourite artists, The Dutch Masters with colour pallets that you would find in the oil paintings of Rembrant, Vermeer and Co.  As you will see from the photographs Shelley Richmond captured the opulent feel beautifully and the gorgeously grand Saltmarshe Hall provided the perfect backdrop.

For the florals we opted for roses and other large blooms like Protea, and mixed up textures combining the likes of whispy, barely there ferns with seasonal anemone to create more drama.  To make the most of the stunning staircase we crafted a unique sculptural, waterfall installation using verdant foliage, textured broom and gorgeous tulips for a pretty colour pop.  If you are looking for wedding inspiration we can definitely recommend a statement floral piece to really make your day unique to you.  The free - flowing feel was also carried through to an asymmetric bouquet, and we also created a very full and romantic flower crown to complete the look. 

We got to work with a real wedding supplier dream team, most of which were based here at Light Space Collective.  Massive thanks to all of the following suppliers:

Lottie and Paul's Cornish Wedding - Meadowy vibes and a man in uniform.

Hi all,

We love working with all our brides but it is always so lovely when you get to design florals for someone you know!  Lottie and Paul are very good friends of T's, so much so that she was asked to also be a witness at the wedding, and have become good friends of mine too.  Looking through all these photographs was such a joy and so hard to just pick a select few for our blog.

The couple wanted a super relaxed feel to the day with a small ceremony at the rather grand and stunningly beautiful Port Eliot, St Germans in Cornwall inside the Orangery  with all the guests going back to the holiday house which they rented for a meal prepared by their very own chef!  The day started with bacon sarnies all round which if you ask me should be compulsory on the morning of a wedding.  I just had to start the blog with the bacon pictures, it just looks so good!

Paul is a Marine so wore his full dress uniform for the day with Lottie opting for a little less traditional sage green dress which suited her skin tone beautifully.  Lottie had her dress specially made as she is expecting her first baby any day now, exciting!  

In terms of florals Lottie wanted quite a wild asymmetric design with plenty of texture finished of with ribbon trails.  The flowers chosen were freesia, scented narcissus, broom, lisianthus and plenty of eucalyptus and tanacetum.  Our bride has gorgeous long auburn hair and wanted a flower crown to compliment her lovely locks, so the design was kept really wild with some absolutely stunning large blooms in there.

Lottie only had one bridesmaid, her sister Jess, who had a hand tied posy with flowers and foliage similar to the bride but on a smaller scale.  Paul had a sprig style buttonhole which sat nicely just above his medals.

Massive thanks to Drew Forsyth Photography for sending us all the incredible images.  I am sure this isn't the last we will see of this wedding.  Enjoy!
