Spring Weddings – The land is awakening and daylight drawing out, Spring time oh how I love you. That dawning of new life, such a wonderful time of year.
This shoot was inspired by the light hues and soft warm tones of the stone and brick walls in the conservatory at Scampston Hall. We wanted to go for a light ethereal quality with a waft of early spring in the air. Despite shooting early March when the gardens are only just starting to stir with life we still wanted to convey that light, warm feeling that can be achieved with selective colour palettes, fabrics and florals. Many couples still love to have an outdoor airy feel to their day and the conservatory and Palladium are magical spaces.
The smouldering elegance of spring
Working in the wedding industry for over 8 years has given me pleasure of working with some of Yorkshires finest suppliers. Kim from the Gatherer is definitely one of my favourites, here is what she had to say about the styling for the florals:
‘The floral choices in the urn arrangement and bouquets were selected to captivate the smouldering elegance of earliest spring availability. A soft warm palette was used to suggest the stirring of growth in the outside environment. Hues to purvey the impending warmth and rich tapestry that the new season introduces. With the installation, I wanted to encapsulate the meandering qualities of growth in the country garden, with botanicals and florals rising intertwined, moving freely with the gentle breeze as they climb from the ground.’ – Watching Kim work her magic crafting the gorgeous floral installations was just amazing. I loved their subtlety and chic nod to spring with out it being to contrived.
