Wild Flower, Meadow Styled Shoot
Mar 12, 2021
Transition into spring with this awe inspiring wild flower, meadow styled shoot that gives off nothing but feel good vibes! A refined, feminine colour palette that will ignite your heart’s desires and start dreaming of alfresco evenings once again!
Outdoor weddings are becoming increasingly popular with many couples choosing marquees, tipis and sperry tents to style out unique spaces, private land or grounds. As we all look forward to being reunited with friends and family very soon, let’s lose ourselves for just 5 minutes and imagine the possible celebrations of summer 2021 with this incredible shoot!
A team of creative industry experts in Yorkshire came together to bring you this look, including our very own Amy from Ambience Harrogate who gave us an insight into the thoughts and ideas behind this breathtaking design.
Here’s what Amy had to say:
Soaking up the last of the summer sun, we managed to squeeze in a beautiful wild meadow inspired styled shoot in the most stunning surroundings of Jervaulx Abbey, which is nestled into the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
This shoot was all about celebration. Celebrating our beautiful countryside, heritage, marriage, food and having a great time with your nearest and dearest. We wanted the shoot to be inclusive of all the different suppliers that come together to make a wedding day special and to give them all a little platform to showcase what they do best.
For us as stylists, we had mainly three areas to dress – the ceremony, the drinks reception and the wedding breakfast. To be honest, I was blessed, the grounds are utterly breathtaking so we really didn’t need to add much to the décor for the ceremony.
We let the florist lead the way with her showstopping wild meadow displays and we accessorised where required with a little candlelight – you know us, always room for some candles…. This element of the shoot was all about capturing the couple, the views and the stunning flowers.
Always my favourite element of styling are the table settings. I was really giddy for this shoot because we tried something a little different. Instead of having a typical table centrepiece I wanted to include the food elements amongst the table design. We decided to change the table plan and utilise square tables instead of your traditional rounds or trestle, so effectively each table had its own bubble.
Victoria Ivy and I created a design whereby we dressed every table differently but using complimentary styles and a common thread to establish a cohesive look but keeping the styling interesting. Although wild meadow inspired, I wanted it to have a modern take and I carefully selected items from Whitehouse Crockery to bring the table design together and work alongside the scrummy food, it just looked incredible.
Candlelight at dusk
We decided to make big features of the bar area and cake display and went to town with lots of flowers sat at different heights and depths and we flooded the area with candlelight. With the night drawing in, the ambient lighting provided by Typical Type and of course our candlelight, it all looked so romantic and effective and was definitely worth a 12 hour shift! I really enjoyed this shoot, which was to be our last of 2020, all the suppliers were lovely and incredible and I cannot wait to work with them all again in the near future!
