North Devon-Red Rock Canyon Styled Shoot
We really do love being involved in styled shoots. Not only is it a great opportunity to create and explore new designs but we also get to meet and work alongside some new talented suppliers. We were contacted by Rebecca, owner of Rebecca Marie Weddings and Events, and was asked to be involved in a Red Rock Canyon shoot that she herself was planning and organising up in the wilds of North Devon.
Rebecca's concept for the day was inspired by the Red Rock Canyon and how these colours are reflected in the Autumn season as the colours of the countryside begin to change and the warmer colours start to appear.
To show off these amazing autumnal colours lots of different aspects of the shoot featured warm tones of terracotta, burnt orange and reds.
The bouquet-wild, vibrant and warm. Picking what flowers to use for any bridal bouquet is key to nailing the overall look of the entire day, whether it be a real life wedding or a styled shoot. To bring in the warming tones of autumn we designed the bouquet using burnt orange Chrysanthemum blooms, terracotta 'Cappuccino' Roses, orange Dahlias, peach Ranunculus, red Scabiosa, Leucadendron and dramatic hanging red Amaranthus for a slight drop to the design. Foraged foliages of berried ivy, dried golden Ferns and touches of the fluffy Stypha gave the design extra texture. The Dahlias, Scabiosa and Ranunuclus were also all British grown, as we try and support our local growers as much as possible. The bouquet complimented the Willowby Watters dress "Orion", from St Ives Bridal Bouquet perfectly.
The outside ceremony. An amazing natural wooden tipi was the centerpiece for this ceremony shoot, surrounded by wooden chairs for the guests.
Running with the wild and natural feel to this outside shoot we adorned the top of the tipi with foraged foliages for a truly organic look.
Roses, Chrysanthemum blooms, Amaranthus, Dahlias, Scabiosa and Ranunculus added colour to the design along with the golden dried Ferns and Eucalyptus.
In keeping with our ethos of being as eco-friendly as possible, along with the British grown flowers, we also created this entire designed foam free. Floral foam is a toxic single use plastic so this design was created using mechanics which we can use
again with only a few cable ties that went to waste (and we are looking into reusable cable ties!)
The tablescape. Alongside the cream plates and coloured glassware we designed a rustic foliage runner on this low levelled, warm toned table. Created using dried Eucalyptus, berried foliage, Amaranthus, foraged foliages and finished with burnt autumn tones of preserved oak leaves. Foliage runners are always a popular option for couples as they look great on long tables where space can be limited. Paired with long taper candles the overall look is spot on.
The collaboration of all the suppliers on this shoot, all working together to make Rebecca's vision possible was key. Below are all the wonderful and extremely talented people who were involved in this shoot. See what they can add to your day!
