A wonderfully vibrant, artistic, creative colour palette for a gorgeous bridal shoot at Hoghton Tower, with Emma Billsborough Photography

Today’s styled shoot is a favourite – I’m biased, because I’m a little bit in it (tooo exciting!) and also because the creative team behind the images are super lovely friends from the north west. Emma Billsborough is an amazing photographer, a fabulous person and a friend I’ve known through the English Wedding Blog for years – and this shoot is one of the most exciting projects of my year.

Emma brought together a fantastic group of north west wedding creatives to show couples how to style a day with colour. Mixed palettes don’t have to be soft and subtle, they can be bold and exciting and still ooze grace and elegance.

I love the way Emma B Photography‘s images capture the glamour and playful colour palette of the shoot. The cake – masterfully painted by The One Who Bakes – is a showstopper, don’t you think?

Huge thanks to Emma for asking me to write the stationery & calligraphy for such a fabulous shoot – it was a real pleasure to play with paints for this! You can see more of what I do (when I’m not blogging!) over at Calligraphy For Weddings. I have to add: Emma came to one of my modern calligraphy workshops last year and her writing was gorgeous!

The shoot took place in the grounds and wood-panelled glory of Hoghton Tower, with the images under canvas from the fabulous Big Chief Tipis. Floral styling by Felicity Farm Flowers made every setting look divine – the colours worked together beautifully. Styling and props came from Betsy’s Living Vintage, with crockery and cutlery sourced by Betsy’s from www.eventcrockeryhire.co.uk

Our beautiful bride was dressed by Areles Bridal, with stunning hair by Victoria Shoesmith and make up by lovely Kerry Baker.

    I find that the weddings that have a lot of color, whether the colors pop as accents, or are extremely bold in the pallet scheme, always feel more vibrant and more filled with laughter, joy and happiness. Wedding color schemes that are light and don’t add in a lot of colors always feel much duller and don’t breathe the bride and groom’s personality as much. Absolutely adore this photo shoot! The cards on the table and the cake immediately catch your eye. They are a wonderful touch.

      Thank you for a really lovely comment! I love both: they capture the essence of the day and while colour reflects your personalities, softer tones can set a gentler scene for your personalities to shine above the details! Either way, colours are fabulous 🙂
