Bohemian Glamour | Styled Shoot

14 October, 2013  |  Couples, Engagement, Weddings

For a while now, I’ve been thinking of organising my own styled shoot. I’m happy to say that I finally managed to organise my first one that took place on the 1st October at Candlewoods Boutique Venue.  My idea for the shoot was to combine the free-spirited and earthy feel of the bohemian style with glamour and gold. I wanted the shoot to serve as inspiration and to showcase the brilliant suppliers who had been onboard. I must say I was completely blown away by what all of them came up with, their ideas, talent and efforts came together so brilliantly and I’m so thankful to everyone who was involved, also the “models” who seemingly effortlessly just looked so amazing on the day. Here’s my pin-board that was the inspiration and vision for the style of the shoot.

I loved the soft curls and natural looking make-up Melissa did for Bernice. I also LOVE the floral crown Nicola put together for her.

Bernice looked so amazing in this lace dress from Joss bridal.

Talia from Darling & Good made this craft paper pinwheel. She can also be contacted for wedding style consultations.

The soft pinks of the roses in this bouquet compliments the soft blushing bride flowers (I LOVE them!) and the use of different loose greenery gives it that boho-feel.Darling & Good Bespoke decoration

The table-setting inside the reception hall of Candlewoods venue. Talia & Nicola worked together on this to combine different textures like the burlap, wood and lace ribbon with the smooth texture of glass and the antique cutlery set. The little drinks bottles with straws can be hired from Darling & Good.

Melissa did a plat with very loose and messy feel for Casey’s hair. I loved it!

This golden satin and lace dress made by Joss bridal (which I think can also be great for bridesmaids’ dresses), looked amazing on Gen.
