Romantic wedding styling ideas in mocha and metallics, with DJ Archer Photography

Romance is in the air this morning as I bring you one of the prettiest styling ideas of the year: mocha and metallics. There are endless possibilities with this colour palette – today’s shoot uses soft tones and the prettiest of details to create a timeless wedding style I know you’ll love.

Images are from DJ Archer Photography (Lancashire). Lovely Lizz told me a little about the background for the shoot. I’ll hand over to her to tell you more! Do check out the suppliers involved if you’re anywhere in the North West – links are at the end of the feature.

Charlotte is a dressmaker and the gowns she and her Legend Bridal team create are truly bespoke. We tend to take the influences from the gowns and accessories that the team from Legend have made.

For the Berrington Hall shoot, our theme was glamour with a touch of mocha. The shoot was very much a glamorous style with Charlotte’s (Legend Bridal) sequins and pearls and crystals featuring throughout. There is still a nod towards vintage weddings but with a more glamorous edge with golds and metallics featuring too.

Keeping the romance, Clare from Blush Rose used delicate crystal accessories with the mophead hydrangeas and pale pink roses.

Gemma’s stationery as usual complemented the whole photo shoot. Elegant, romantic and beautifully detailed invites and place settings worked so well with the venue dressing.

The cakes were designed to reflect the pale golds and pearls and mocha of the dresses. Individual pearls were made and strung in the same way they were on the dress. Pale pearlised panels and handmade flowers completed the look.

On the morning of the shoot we realised the building where we had wanted to shoot wasn’t actually ready! We thought we’d all panic but we quickly set up home in the marquee at Berrington Hall and worked on plan B.

It was cold and windy but the team knew exactly what was needed to make the shoot a success. Lots of coffee and lots of laughs.

Working with such fantastic suppliers really does make things smooth (This is as true for brides and grooms as it is on styled shoots! – C). As photographers we don’t need to worry if the dresses will look ok, will the hair stay in place, what if the mascara runs. We have complete faith in the suppliers and just know that they will be amazing.

In return, they just stand back and let us shoot, again, safe in the knowledge that we’ll get the images they want.

The marquee backdrop worked really well as a blank canvas for everything so it could be shot and styled exactly as everyone wanted.

It was also fantastic having the professional dancer, Rowan. Even in a suit he made leaps and bounds I can only dream of.

Now I wonder if we can get every groom to do this??
