Twist + Shout…
Tell us your inspiration behind the shoot…
Intimate, Alternative, with a relaxed Rock Vibe. We wanted to inspire people with confidence to have the day they really love. You don’t have to be traditional, your day should reflect what you love. This is for couples who want their day to be just as unique as they are.
What details are your favourite, and why?
From a palette of black, white and red, with an alternative relaxed, rock vibe, we created an epic love story with beautiful details, celebrating independently created elements from a hand cut burgundy veil, to a stunning black marble cake with a cascade of red sugar roses and gilded leaves, to incredible jackets and beautiful lace and tulle bridal separates to die for.
Do you have any styling tips for readers looking to emulate this shoot?
With a few key details you can transform a simple environment (in this case a hotel lounge). Focus on a few statement pieces to draw the eye: like an incredible hand painted cake, a gorgeous frothy ombré tulle skirt or a stunning floral arch. Just two or three can really elevate your environment and wardrobe. Next think about the little details, like transforming a traditional ‘up do’ to give it a subtle rock edge, choosing a few pieces of jewellery that really reflect who you both are that you can wear for years to come.
What’s the most important tip you have for couples planning their wedding?
If you really want something different, where you can, choose independent artists and suppliers. Check out their portfolio (insta is always useful) , do they work in a style you love consistently and beautifully? Then talk to them, tell them your dreams for you day and you’ll know if you’re a good fit. Once you’ve found them and fallen in love with what they do, you can trust them to create something incredible for you.
