The Reverse Destination Wedding – A Norfolk Vineyard, With Amanda Karen Photography
A beautiful wedding look with a faraway vibe… the vineyard backdrop feels like a sunny Italian destination. Happily, this all takes place much closer to home! With eucalyptus and olive branch styling and delicate greens, light summer outfits and relaxed luxury styling, today’s blog is everything you need to style your UK ‘destination’ wedding for summer. Huge thanks to lovely English Wedding member Amanda Karen Photography for sharing this with us today!
The inspiration was to show couples that there are some amazing locations within East Anglia which can give you the feeling of being abroad. Reverse destination weddings are something I am seeing a lot of, with couples specifically choosing Norfolk and Suffolk as the destination for their wedding just because they love the setting. Recruiting a top-class team of creatives based in East Anglia, for a high-quality result, this shoot also clearly showcases the amazing local wedding talent in our area.
Although the location for the shoot is not a wedding venue the setting was so perfect as a backdrop and inspiration for our concept. The colour palette was kept very natural with white and green being the dominant colours, and a heavy emphasis on foliage and natural elements to blend with the surroundings. The vineyard was certainly an inspiration as you can see and we used this to tie in the dress design, the stationery, the table decorations and the cake together into a delicately luxurious look. Everything was kept very elegant and classic to again illustrate that you can have a luxury feeling wedding in a countryside setting – it doesn’t have to be rustic hessian and straw bales!
