There’s nothing better in the summer than idling by the river in the warm sunshine. I think today’s wedding inspiration will absolutely take you to that place with its dreamy romance.
Brought together by Bluebird Creative, you will totally love seeing the talent of the brilliant suppliers on display. From the ethereal bridal looks from the Secret Dresshouse, to the undone and loose hair styling, this truly is a relaxed beauty of a shoot.
Mindy Coe has captured all the creativity beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing the gorgeousness with us Mindy.
With the opportunity to create something pretty magical at a private residence in Windsor, we set on creating a hidden paradise, combining gorgeous pastel shades and with fairytale romance.
The bride’s bouquet featured Secret garden, Ohara and Yves Piaget roses, delphinium, orlaya, clematis, phlox, Belle Époque tulips, bowl of cream peony, lilac and nigella, foxgloves, hellebores, Philadelphus with prunus, jasmine and olive foliage
The setting was incredible. With it’s own little rustic boathouse as the main feature and a river boat, it was the perfect setting for a fairytale elopement. There were so many hidden gems to capture amazing moments between our couple. Because of the season, there we tons of bluebells filling the woodland walkway that was set at the back of the boat house, offering this calmness by the river, then excitement of what was hiding behind in the beautiful woodland countryside, all still within this amazing property. A photographer’s paradise for Mindy Coe.
The bride was styled by the fabulous Melissa Oldridge who did her hair and makeup in various styles. All featuring beautiful jewellery from Agnes Walker. The hair was created by expanding silky plaits into loose updos and undone curls. A very delicate placement of product meant the hair could move and unwind in the soft breeze on the river creating romance and tenderness. The makeup was based on a traditional soft playful look. Creating dreamy eyes and fluttery lashes, with a wash of rose cheeks and bouncy bare lips. The look was to enhance natural features and feel effortless, yet still look groomed and graceful.
The boat was dressed in very realistic silk flowers from Faux Bloom Designs and sat in the beautifully glistening river beside our boathouse. We dressed the steps to the boathouse in the most gorgeous foliage by Liz from Bluesky flowers. Also creating a very special moment inside the boathouse for our couple.
Our fairytale dining was set by the riverside, with gorgeous boho seating from Turmeric House and a luxurious purple velvet chair from gifting genius Prezola.
It featured multiple coloured and textured glasses from Couvert, along with their brand new stunning clear glass, lace print charger plates and gold cutlery. The table was adorned with spring, jewel coloured fruit and a beautiful floral centrepiece.
At one end of the table featured the cake. An amazing piece of work from Milk Street Kitchen. Understated, but intricate at the same time. With gorgeous pastel colours and flowers.
The table also featured a scattering of stunning flower shaped biscuits covered in sugar and edible sugared flowers. they were divine. There were also pastel coloured macaroons which added another level to the table setting. Bluebird Creative created handwritten calligraphy table names, which sat on hand cut chiffon napkins. The table was a truly magical affair.
Both dresses ‘Luna’ and ‘First’ RemboStyling were lent to us from Secret Dress House. Rembostyling are a modern and luxurious brand. They really encapsulate that boho chic vibe and the dresses had beautiful details and were very romantic in style.
The hair pieces and jewellery from Agnes Walker were so incredibly fairytale, in both their colour and design. Something to really be desired in person! Some incredible statement pieces, that complete any bridal look.
It was such a pleasure working with such incredible industry suppliers, who are amazingly talented at what they do.
