Dreamy Summer Lavender Wedding Ideas

Summer Lavender Wedding Ideas http://www.annemarieking.co.uk/

 

Let’s escape to dreamy lavender fields. The bees are buzzing, the sun is shining and there is a bride and groom about to commit to one another for a lifetime.

The concept behind these wonderful images today was to create English country wedding ideas for couples. I love the purple colour scheme, the  idyllic setting and the delicious looking cake.

Soak up the loveliness.

Thanks so much to Annemarie King for allowing me to share these images today. Designed, styled and co-ordinated by Celebration Ceremonies & Weddings, here is what they had to say about the shoot;

 

“When it comes to planning a wedding, the starting point is always location, location, location which is why Celebration Ceremonies & Weddings are always on the hunt for exciting hidden gems to work to inspire a new generation of brides looking for something more personal and unique. Last August we came across these beautiful lavender fields on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, filled with an abundance of varieties and shades of English lavender; and as dusk fell the lavender took an altogether different hue which combined with the lavender essence was just heavenly.

Wolds Way Lavender was the perfect natural setting for our shoot and for a bride and groom to say their “I do’s”. The lavender was a stunning backdrop for us to create a contemporary, romantic and natural wedding shoot to showcase some new styling ideas, gowns and lavender refreshments.

We invited some of Yorkshire’s top wedding talent to collaborate with us and use their expertise to inspire a new generation of brides: renowned country photographer Annemarie King., hair stylist Emily Hawkes, makeup artist Louise Lunn, bridal gown boutique Andrea Bambridge Bridal and Queen of macarons Lynne at Medici Macarons.”

“Our overall vision was to create a quintessentially English country shoot, but with a twist, using natural light and vintage lace, knitted textiles, Japanese kimono silks and cut glass to a create soft, romantic style. We chose strong blues, purples and pinks to compliment and contrast with the lavender.

For the bridal bouquet, groom’s button hole, aisle, alter and table flower arrangements we handpicked blue and purple Hydrangea, pink Japanese Anemone and dried grasses to contrast and offset against English lavender. We are great supporters of the Great British Garden Revival and local flower growers of seasonal, traditional British flowers.

We like to think in words and pictures and were inspired by the song “Lavender blue” and the lyrics were incorporated into our wedding stationery collection.

We designed a guilt-framed order of ceremony which stood at the entrance to the ceremony area on an ornate rustic iron stand. The collection also included invitations, certificates, personalised menus, eat, drink and be merry cards for the cake and lavender refreshments and labels for the lavender confetti.

Our concept for the shoot was to create four inspirational elements within the lavender fields: a beautiful ceremony area, a table setting design, a lavender inspired cake centerpiece and refreshments and a dreamy bride and groom walk through the fields.”

Retro Aqua & Pink Engagement Shoot Ideas
22.11.2014

Retro Aqua & Pink Engagement Ideas http://audrawrisley.com/

 

Candy coloured fun inspiration with a dash of sparkle to brighten up your Saturday morning :-)

I love this retro aqua and pink styled engagement shoot, which is full of ideas perfect for weddings too. Think pastel blooms, an ombre layer cake and sparklers for starters.

Thanks so much to Audra Wrisley for sharing these images today, here is what she had to say about the shoot;

 

“For this shoot, we hoped to create a shoot of retro-styled engagement photos, hosted at Glen Echo Park. Glen Echo is the oldest amusement park in the US, and operated through 1960 as such! I loved imagining how many summer nights and love birds this park has seen throughout the years, and we hoped to create a spirit of sweet nostalgia with this shoot. I loved teaming up with such a fabulous vendor team, and a beautiful couple to create a shoot filled with these dreamy images! Together with Le Mariee on makeup and hair, Kelly Shore with Petals by the Shore, and an amazing ombre cake and table scape created by our lovely model Colleen, we crafted a beautiful shoot including tones of subdued reds, pastel aquas and pinks. Including a retro vibe with a modern twist, the model’s pastel pink hair and adorable A-line Vera Wang dress fit in perfectly with the vintage amusement park. We ended the shoot with a few sparklers and fireworks, which was the perfect ending to a steamy summer shoot!”

It’s the final set of images from the WWW editorial for you this afternoon. I am so proud of this creative shoot that came together with some incredible wedding suppliers.

The last instalment focuses on model Kirsty. Kirsty had three looks on the day, all encompassing a beautiful rustic dreamy feel.

Lisa Alger at Essex Wedding Beauty told me how she created Kirsty’s first look;

“For Kirsty’s first look I created an intricate plait by incorporating a few different braiding techniques and combining them together. We then added lots of foliage to the plait to stay in keeping with the theme.

I used shades of pink for Kirsty’s first makeup look, using the new Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and ‘Pale Mauve’ lipstick by Bobbi Brown.”

Ethereal English Rose Bridal Look. Real Bride Kate
13.10.2014

Ethereal English Rose Bridal Bride http://www.careysheffield.com/

 

This week I am sharing WWW real bride Kate’s look from the WWW editoral shoot.

Kate looked stunning; with an ethereal paired back English Rose look. Her first look is quite classic, with Kate donning Isabelle by La Poesie and a rhinestone encrusted branch hair vine by Klaire Van Elton. Set in the house at Moggerhanger Park, it provided the perfect backdrop to this timeless style. Lisa Alger from Essex Wedding Beauty tells us how she achieved Kate’s hair and make up;

“I wanted to create a fresh dewy look for Kate, which I achieved using sheer products allowing the skin to shine through. The products used can be found on the tutorial (coming soon). Kate’s warm tones in her skin worked well with browns and bronze eye shadows, which I also applied under the eye to enhance her beautiful big brown eyes.

For Kate’s second look I used ‘Crimson’ lipstick by Bobbi Brown and added liner to the eyes to compliment this more evening look. To create the relaxed low bun, first I loosely curled Kate’s hair in different directions with a medium sized tong. Then after securing a hair donut, close to Kate’s hairline, I gathered curls of hair and pinned to cover the padding. Using padding is a great way to add volume to an updo whilst still having plenty of hair to work with.

Huge thanks to Carey Sheffield for sharing her imagery today.
