Delphinium Blues at the Matara Centre

Published by Claire Gould on

The sun is shining and we wanted to treat you to something really beautiful today. We hope you’ll love this photoshoot as much as we do! Created by a super talented team of wedding suppliers, it’s dreamy and romantic with some fabulous styling touches. Huge thanks and much admiration for lovely Lisa at Ampersand Memories Photography for sending this beauty our way! 

We wanted to create a wedding look that inspire calmness and contemplation, that reflects the ethos of the Matara Centre and use a colour scheme that would complement that feeling and energy – the varying blues of the delphinium flower was perfect for this, which allowed us to create a monochromatic look that had interest and movement and that fit perfectly in the peaceful surroundings of the venue.

Sustainability was also an important factor in the choices for the shoot: all the arrangements were foam free with reusable mechanics such as wire structures, moss and reusable trays and vessels, and both outfits were borrowed for the occasion from friends and family.

The stationery suite was created with seeded paper so that it can be planted as a reminder of a beautiful occasion. This goes hand in hand with Matara’s ethos of sustainability, diversity and harmony.

We hoped to inspire couples to find moments of quiet to enjoy their precious moments and also wanted to capture the harmony and tranquillity of the venue by setting the chaise longue by the lake and enjoy the glowing light of golden hour, and finishing off with the rush, excitement and joy of the occasion with a champagne shower.
