Capturing Elegance: A Staffordshire Styled Shoot

This styled shoot took place in a privately owned hall in the Staffordshire countryside, which has been refurbished and turned into a luxury wedding venue. The organisers wanted understated and timeless elegance in whites and greens for this one, with plenty of froth and texture. I chose Alpe d'Huez roses and ranunculus for this frilly, dainty bouquet, accented with phlox, genista, gypsophila and eucalyptus. A cream trailing silk ribbon finished the look.

This vibe continued inside the venue, and I echoed the bouquet with a small meadow box for the signage, then wired gypsophila and eucalyptus to wreath rings to create some simple table centrepieces. Adding tall floating candles to the centre of the wreaths gave the most beautiful effect. Even the cake table was given a little sprinkling of fluffy gypsophila, but do be careful of adding this near any foods as it is toxic! In our case, the top tier of this particular cake was a 'dummy' cake so it was fine to add some to the top, then we carefully placed some around the bottom without letting it touch, to match the wreath centrepieces.

We had both a model couple and a single bridal model for the day, and between them they showcased quite the array of beautiful dresses! Amy, the bridal model, did a brilliant job of posing with the bouquet, and these fabulous images were taken by the Content Creator on the day, The Social Wedit.
