A celebration by the sea

A celebration by the sea

Wedding styling: ethereal coastal

Moody ocean hues, scripted shells and swirling skirts for a celebration inspired by a sea goddess



With its wave-lashed cliffs and beguiling sea cave, North Devon's Watermouth Cove made an entrancing setting for a styled shoot inspired by Amphitrite, Greek goddess of the sea.

'I wanted the shoot to have drama, texture and movement, so we included lots of natural materials and fabrics which were picked up by the strong sea breeze,' explains photographer Katherine Mills of Katherine and her Camera.

'We used tones of blue and grey for the tablescape to reflect the moody nature of the sea, mixed with white florals including roses and dried ruscus and palms,' she continues. 'A muslin table runner added to the textures on the table alongside the black candlesticks. We wanted the flowers to emulate white sea foam.'

Tying in beautifully with the flowers, the bride's shimmering white bridal gown looks striking against the seaworn cliffs, her coastal crown completing her goddess-like ensemble with delicate pearls. The sea nymph bridesmaid, meanwhile, wears a tulle skirt and lace bodysuit. 'The skirt moved beautifully in the sea breeze, looking like rolling waves,' says Katherine.

Adorned with shells, sea glass and ribbons fluttering in the salty breeze, the cake slots into the ethereal scene seamlessly, tying in with the soft marine shades of the stationery and hand-scripted shells dotted across the tablescape. Then there's the Montana sapphire ring; its tones changing with the light, its mesmerising blues echo the moods of the sea ' the perfect ring for sea-loving souls.
