Creating an ethereal, bohemian all-white wedding look using pampas grass and honesty for Unveiled magazine
We thoroughly loved creating this beautiful and ethereal, all-white wedding look. From the very beginning this shoot was so floaty and different and magical - it was a joy to work on!
We styled this shoot with bride-to-be bible, Unveiled Magazine, and a whole host of other amazing suppliers, including the brilliant Becca Hunton, with a brief to create a divine bohemian bridal look. Almost angelic. And we think we hit the nail on the head.
To achieve a whimsical look we created two bouquets. For the first, we arranged a mix of pale peach spray roses with big, round sand and white coloured ranunculuses, and long, beautiful white orchids. The layers and layers of beautiful petals in the ranunculus added a wonderful sense of depth to our unstructured bouquet. We added masses of grey-blue brunnia and small beige grasses to add interest and give the bouquet a feel that was grounded in nature. We gave the bridal bouquet a touch of wilderness by adding the unusual shapes of white veronica, blush aramanthus, dried nigella, wax flower and snow white hyacinths. And, to take that wild vibe even further we used sprigs of semi-transparent honesty, that we also later used to create a beautiful tree-like installation, to give the wedding an ethereal, fairy-like quality.
For the second bouquet, we made a large fan bouquet of creamy dwarf pampas grass. The fluffy texture of the grasses looked breathtaking against the intricate detailing of the lace Savin London wedding dress from Lace & Co Bridal Boutique, particularly as the sun went down and glimmers of light came through the feathery stems. Divine!
We continued the ethereal theme throughout the venue - the beautiful Saltmarshe Hall is a setting of understated elegance that makes it the perfect place for a romantic and wild wedding. We styled a huge front facing urn, framed by a statement arch of dwarf pampas grass. We also added stunning array of white lisianthus, white roses, honesty, small willow branches and greying aramanthus to create a statement wild floral installation that was moved throughout the venue for background drama.
And finally, we dressed our enchanting model, Naima, with a full, almost all-foliage crown of cotton, silver eryngium, grey-blue brunia and lots of delicate honesty. Unlike elsewhere, we also added tiny bursts of small white chinamum flowers to create a dramatic starlike effect - just right for the theme of ‘Heavenly Bodies’.
We are so in love with the final images from this bridal shoot; shot by the amazing Nadia Meli. The flowers, arrangements and installation are the perfect inspiration for any bride wanting a romantic, bohemian wedding in Yorkshire.
