It occurred to me that this beautiful black and white florals editorial hasn’t been given air time on the blog! Chichester Guildhall provided the most stunning back drop for this shoot. The intertior displaying ornate details and just look at those windows!
The Bridal Bouquet
The light blush colours in this bridal bouquet contast well with the darker shades of black and burgundy. As the shoot took place in the early Spring it features an array of ingredients. Including Bordeaux Anemones, Fritillaria meleagris and Ranunculus. Along with Scabious, Dorcus Carrota that contrast with the Quicksand Roses. Black velvet ribbon from Silk and Purl hung from the bouquet and finished it perfectly. I particulary love the hint of trailing jasmine too.
Exquisite stationary for the shoot was by Elins Art Studio. It looks gorgeous in this flat lay image captured by Cecelina Photography. The vintage inspired ring box from La Petite Box and black velvet ribbon compliment the stationary perfecly too.
I wanted the urn for this black and white florals editoral. To look natural yet abundant. To do this I created my shape using a variety of different foliages including Magnolia and Pistachio. Incorporating a few of the same black and white flowers from the bridal bouquet and as a result creating a cohesive look. Adding hints of Icelandic Poppies to soften and create added drama.
No black and white editorial would be complete without blackberry cocktails! Styled beautifully by Weddings by Emily Charlotte.
The dress from Augusta Jones Bridal due to the elegant shape and low back fits the brief of the shoot perfectly. Really love this shot of the bridal bouquet too.
The tablescape design created by Emily is a monochramtic feast for the eyes! The white details really pop against the black tablecloth to create a dramatic effect.
It was a pleasure to be part of this beautiful black and white editorial and collaboratting with the team of talented suppliers. The full shoot was featured over on Ruffled if you want to check it out. Whilst the majority of weddings are sadly on hold for the time being. It’s important to stay inspired and get excited about planning your big day. If you have had to postpone your wedding, hang on in there! Your big day will be even more special and the celebrations all the bit sweeter because of the storm you have had to ride. Love always wins!
