I’m finding it fascinating to see wedding suppliers almost subconsciously adapt their shoots to work for micro weddings. While the wedding world shifts and changes to a focus on intimate, small (and all the more beautiful) celebrations, suppliers are coming together to create the most wonderful inspiration for our editorials. Today’s post is a fabulous example: a small group of talented Norfolk wedding creatives came together to create something truly beautiful. For me, it shows that you can have a magical micro wedding with a small team of trusted suppliers to turn your dreams into reality.
Those Norfolk wedding suppliers for you to discover are:
Photography Neil Senior Photography
Venue Chaucer Barn
Bespoke bridal design Tatty’s Original (Tiffany and fiancé Josh are our bride and groom)
Silk florals, decor and styling Vintage Silk (words are by Amy from Vintage Silk)
Macramé by Lovely Little Lot of Knots
Our inspiration for this shoot was to complement the natural surroundings in a subtle yet decorative way. We brought in tones of magic and romance with a detailed macramé back drop arch, the perfect back drop to add depth and texture to the ceremony without detracting from the wildlife, foliage and trees behind.
It is immensely popular to utilise the natural outdoor surrounding as part of the venue… and enveloping all that nature has provided to their décor, letting the environment do the work, while our decoration simply complements all that nature has already provided.
The peacock chair is made out of bamboo and is a simple yet effective to addition to add texture but not detract from the surrounding natural environs. The macramé and peacock chair are superb props for any wedding soiree vision and the versality is endless to creating beautiful décor to your ceremony…
The majority of our weddings are outdoor ceremonies set in the heart of the beautiful Norfolk countryside. The rustic, tranquil ceremony and receptions that are hosted outdoors or under canvas, creates a calming and beautiful surrounding that guests feel relaxed in and not overly standing on ceremony throughout the day.
To keep with the shoot’s theme of complementing the natural, rustic surroundings, we chose classic white roses, eucalyptus, ferns and heath flower, to pepper throughout the bouquet, adding subtle yet striking colour….
We tied the entire shoot together with the bride and groom’s outfits by dressing them both in informal, yet smart and relaxed wedding attire to complement their surroundings. The groom’s suit jacket added a touch of suave with tailored trousers that purposefully didn’t match but complemented the suit jacket. The colour compliments the natural, earthy tones of the shoot, again allowing nature and the venue to provide the natural tones of the décor.
The bride’s dress is simple, yet beautifully detailed, as is the macramé and they both complement the other effectively. We chose not to add in a veil for the bride to keep with the relaxed feel of the ceremony and let the flowers add that touch of sharp colour to break up the macramé and dress.
