An Edgy Romance

I created this shoot to show that injecting a little edge and a non-traditional colour palette into your wedding day still means creating something that is extremely beautiful!

What a find The Old Dairy was! Such an exciting and industrial space to completely make your own. High ceilings. Bright-white walls. Aged concrete floors. And its very own swing! The absolute perfect backdrop for An Edgy Romance.

I used modern pieces of furniture from Options - a glossy black drinks trolley as the perfect home for that gorgeous gold-flecked cake. Ghost chairs to which I added gold detailing. Gold and black accents were used throughout the set-ups to create the modern cohesive look you see here.

Herbert & Isles are flower rockstars! They created effortless and relaxed flowers, with a hint of drama, using white proteas and black tulips accompanied with foliage that they foraged the day before!

The ceremony layout has a modern and stylish feel, and I loved the idea of using the Bag & Bones neon “And so it begins” sign as the backdrop for the I do’s, complemented with additional foliage to soften the look.

The cake by Claire Owen Cakes with its super crisp black top and bottom tiers with gilded leaf detail, sandwiching the splatter design of the second tier, was sublime and echoed the modern style of the stationery suite by Paper Arrow Press.

For Roxana, our gorgeous model, I asked for plaits, smokey eyes and gold sparkle - Cass (hair) & Mariam (make-up) completely delivered! I paired this look with pieces by Otaduy - I just adore their designs - they manage to create styles that are full of fun yet simultaneously effortless and cool. I loved teaming their "Run" lace cropped top with "Kahlo", the floatiest and softest of skirts, and of course the "Rhianna" leather jacket of dreams!

Siobhan, beautiful picture taking genius captured the vision I had for this shoot utterly and completely.
