Today’s inspiration is fabulous – a cute rowing boat, opulent summer florals and a bridal jumpsuit from KMR Bridal make this the loveliest shoot in my inbox right now! Huge thanks to lovely English Wedding member Sam at Fantail Designer Florist for sharing this with us. Sam worked alongside a wonderfully talented team to bring their ideas to life, and the concept will translate beautifully for those of you planning a micro wedding or elopement in the coming months.

We wanted to create a shoot for an elopement or a mini wedding. People are now looking at doing intimate weddings and if possible within their garden. So, we decided to set the scene at Damflask Reservoir with a boat theme showcasing a new short jumpsuit design by KMR Bridal with a small wedding breakfast in Fantail’s own cut garden.
The Jumpsuit is very much on trend and if balmy weather’s likely on your wedding date it’s well worth the risk of this design. For cooler nights a denim or leather jacket would look lovely or a stunning lace jacket as photographed would also look amazing.
The ‘Viola’ lace jacket is made with an embroidered Broderie Anglais Lace and it can be styled with a variety of bridal looks – perfect for a boho bride. The jacket can even be worn after the big day making it a perfect capsule bridal piece.
The ‘Ciara’ playsuit is made with a light ivory crepe and trimmed with a beautiful scallop lace trim. The playsuit features delicate cap sleeves, a scooped front neckline and low V neckline to the waist. It is fastened at the back with covered buttons and is the perfect alternative to a traditional wedding dress.
The two tier drop veil was our personal favourite. It is a statement headpiece with the embellished beaded lace motif dramatically framing the back of the head. The veil details continue around the front of the head with an ivory beaded trim, which complements the lace detailing at the back.
It’s also something different, something that could be used again and again.
The concept of the shoot started from the supply of the boat, which is hired at weddings to keep children entertained within weddings and everything flowed from there!
The cake is a three tiered design with icing on all levels with hints of gold and sugar paste florets.
The stationery is circular, which is a fresh shape to compliment the wood charger plates beneath them.
Makeup was applied in a natural way with a strong lip colour, and Emma fashioned soft wave for her hair style so the veil could sit beautifully on her hair to really show off this veil piece.
This is a stripped back shoot, showing that the most simplest of tables designs, venue, etc. doesn’t matter. What matters is you have the closest people with you and celebrate your love, and when we get back to some kind of normality, throw the big party then.
