Modern Monochrome Wedding Inspiration– For those dancing between elegance & edge
This editorial shoot was very much inspired by the style savvy and contemporary bride who as creative suppliers, we are seeing enjoying simple, classic and effortlessly elegant design.
Create a luxurious, modern edge using a mainly monochromatic palette, with plenty of black to showcase elegant shapes and strong design.”
The Fig House at Middleton Lodge, a most gorgeous wedding venue nestled within the most sublime North Yorkshire countryside, was the perfect backdrop for our shoot, with its understated style, perfect amount of restoration and huge grey framed windows that cast the most beautiful natural light into the scene. See more gorgeous real weddings at the Fig House here.
315 Press set the tone perfectly with a luxurious black stationery suite featuring white contemporary letterpress text. The bespoke black menu cards sat beautifully on concrete trays handcrafted by the lovely Hannah Harriet. Hannah’s homeware designs are perfect for the modern interior look.
We featured four amazing dresses from Andrea Hawkes bridal. Two of which were from the current capsule collection, with clean cuts and sleek tailoring using the most luxurious silks and leathers.
Then the simple, slinky silk Drew dress which is the perfect cut and just flows effortlessly then lastly the stunning Liberty that features a long flowing cape for that softer look.
Modern Monochrome Detail:
In keeping with the effortless edge we wanted to add a statement earring. The ‘Ana’ in mother of pearl by Moon & Wolf. ‘Ana’ were the perfect pairing for the insane ‘stardust’ heels from the amazing Freya Rose echoing the luxurious feel with quality design & materials for the contemporary bride. We also used the simple elegant Fefe.
Enhancing this clean, minimal vibe with the hair and make up with a sleek back pony tail and wet look combed back hair. A darker smoky eye but dewy fresh skin to bring our looks up to date for the fresh modern bride.
A few words for the wonderful Jane over at Weddings & Events
‘“When the uber talented Georgina Harrison asked us to collaborate on this “on trend” shoot we jumped at the chance!
Monochrome designs & styling with a stellar line up of suppliers in the fabulous Fig House? Yes please!
We chose a palette of Black & White for the Table styling, using Orchids, Dried Flowers, including Lunaria & Bunny Tails and sprayed Black Foliage.
For the Bouquets, a formal, but modern Rose & Orchid one created with the wonderful Toffee & Dorchester roses was captured beautifully in Georgina’s images. The Black & White dried Bouquet lend itself wonderfully to the stunning Andrea Hawkes collection.
Finally we couldn’t resist creating the huge foam free Pampas Cloud with Black & White dried elements and beautiful Orchids for that luxurious look.”
