Bold Bright

Styled Shoot

The Cow Shed


Vibrant and fun, this styled shoot was inspired by a love of bright colours. The coastal location added to the sense of rustic and natural. So much to tickle your tastebuds…

What was the inspiration behind the shoot?
The reason behind the shoot was that Lisa (Floral Menagerie) and I both really wanted to create a styled shoot using bright flowers and oranges and yellows. After doing a lot of pastel styled shoots and weddings it was great to have a change.
How did you pick the location?
While looking at venues I saw my friend share a link to her new venue on my Facebook so I got in touch to ask if I could check it out. Gillian from The Cow Shed was so excited to host a styled photoshoot.
Tell us about dressing the models…
When Emily from Unbridaled Boutique emailed me through images of dresses to select from, as soon as I saw the sheer cape with lace trim I knew I wanted to shoot it. It is a very classic bandeau dress, but when the sheer cape is placed over it completely transforms the dress to something unique. I could just see it working so well with the model’s hair and the beach backdrop.
How did you style the shoot?
We wanted the brides bouquet to be a real feature of the shoot and have all the other details such as table flowers, cocktails, cake, menu card, table numbers and grooms Buttonhole to the compliment the bright colourings.
By having the bright ribbon backdrop behind the top table it was to show brides an option of how to keep your theme consistent but also quirky and original. This backdrop was my own DIY, tying different colours of ribbon onto a wooden stick.
Any particular highlights from the shoot?
I loved that Crail church and Crail harbour were a two minute drive from the venue. I could have easily shot at so many different locations on the day: the harbour is vibrant and fun then you wall to beach which takes your breath away and so romantic.
When we were shooting at the harbour Kieran (groom) was congratulated by passing fishermen ‘she’s absolutely beautiful mate, you lucky guy’. Then a lovely old lady approached Amy (bride) and handed her a five pound note – we had to then obviously tell her it was all styled.

I love the oranges and yellows used in this shoot. Anyone planning bolds and brights for their wedding flowers? Alie x
