Wedding planner Phoebe Taylor of Clover & Fern was inspired to go back to basics for this contemporary styled shoot, blending a neutral palette with industrial elements. “I wanted to create a very airy, natural and relaxed yet modern set-up with lots of neutral tones and loose fabrics elevated with the use of gold,” she explains.
Nestled in the heart of rural Devon, Higher Holcombe offers a perfect canvas for the contemporary and incredibly versatile aesthetic. “Our photographer, Danielle, wanted to use a lot of natural light and solid lines to create some stunning editorial shots. The black framed windows and poured concrete floor of the Old Dairy worked so perfectly for the neutral and industrial inspired styling,” says Phoebe.
The tablescape blends a palette of soft shades – think beige and cream with hints of rust and blush – with gold accents and natural textures of rattan and wood. “I fell in love with our florist’s idea for a floral centrepiece with a black matt metal arch in a block of wood,” says Phoebe. “I continued the matt black theme throughout the tablescape, mainly in the candlesticks and cutlery which gave a really contemporary edge to the soft fabrics on the table.”
Adorned with neutral florals, the cake carries the texture and achingly modern mood, while the smooth curves, gold tassels and wax seals of the stationery echo the softness of the scene. Then there’s the bride and groom. Simple and elegant, the bride’s off-the-shoulder gown, dainty pearls and relaxed updo are gorgeously in sync with the groom’s coolly laidback look – the epitome of trending yet timelessly chic wedding style.
