Kingfisher inspired styled shoot
This styled shoot was inspired by the orange and blue colours in the UK Kingfisher bird. The aim of this shoot was to inspire brides and show how colour can be used in your wedding, in a beautiful, elegant way from vibrant coloured flowers to smaller details like coloured glassware and table linen. The colour palette used was fuchsia, orange (russet) and shades of blue (navy and cobalt) with hints of cream. These are strong vibrant colours.
The beautiful Nurstead Court in Kent provided the perfect location. It is a family run country house with lovely large rooms and wonderful views of the Kent countryside. It’s elegant, laid back and understated glamour were ideal for this shoot.
The flowers and foliage were an abundance of beautiful, vibrant roses for table flowers in gorgeous gold urns. There was also a stunning bridal bouquet of roses and striking coloured grasses for the fireplace, which all worked so well.
Gorgeous champagne coloured tablecloths and vibrant blue table napkins worked so well together. Different coloured glassware was used to add impact, and the wonderful gold items for the table added that finishing touch.
A wonderful and delicate cake with exquisite lifelike sugar flowers was created especially for this shoot. Bespoke stationery was created to match the colour scheme and stunning luxurious bridal jewellery, and the bespoke balloon columns added a unique, creative feature which worked so well.
Adding touches of vibrant colours is a brilliant way to add your own unique stamp to your wedding, whether you use it sparingly or throughout. Give it a try, it will make your wedding pop!
