This shoot was inspired by Dutch painter Rachel Ruysch who focused on painting beautiful wild floral arrangements on flowing fabric runners. We both had the pleasure of working with Ben before our respective wedding businesses began. Our paths still cross in fashion, but it is truly a privilege to work with him on weddings.
He’s got an incredible knack for natural light and manages to turn such simple moments into the most romantic scenes. Ben found the amazing location and really captured the narrative running through the styling and floristry with his photographs.
We asked Frida to work with us on this shoot as her floristry skills are true works of art! In a romantic but also run down setting, the colours of the 18th century town house brought the images together. Grand floral displays in urns and detailed arrangements added texture to the rooms, with natural light spilling in from the windows. Candles were a big part of this shoot too, we scattered them throughout the house and across the tables for a warm vintage feel.
For the outfits we wanted to mix bold jewellery and embellished dresses with floral veils to show our love for accessories and to give the shoot a modern twist. We wanted to prove that colour and texture isn’t to be afraid of when it comes to styling your wedding outfit.
