Flanked by wildflower-filled meadows, The White Barn blends its agricultural heritage with a light, contemporary feel, the sweeping staircase, floor-to-ceiling bar and mezzanine floor adding to its beautiful wedding aesthetic. It is an airy space that you can truly put your stamp on – which the team of creatives certainly did in this styled shoot.
Taking the Pantone colour of the year, Viva Magenta, as the starting point, the team incorporated varying shades of pink to add depth and dimension to the neutral background of the interior. The bright and beautiful palette is carried vividly in the wow-worthy floral arrangements: roses of varying pink and red tones are paired with delicate cherry blossoms, frilly lisianthus and carnations, pampas grass and eucalyptus leaves dyed a vivid purple hue.
Touches of glamour are added via the gold-rimmed glass plate chargers, gold cutlery and pale pink glassware adorning the tablescapes. Tall candlesticks and bud vases in tones echoing the blooms add interest to the trestle tables, while church candles and large lanterns make a feature point throughout the venue.
The stationery suite features a delicate cherry blossom design, and transparent place name cards finished with brightly coloured tassels sit atop pale pink napkins adorned with exotic orchid heads to create a dreamy place setting. The air of romance continues with the cake, the striking ombre effect of its sleek tiers created from buttercream, the berry hues enhanced by a cascade of flowers dotted with blueberries.
From billowing sleeves and whimsical lace to floral embellishment, a stunning collection of gowns complete the chic and glamorous picture. Paired with a fashion-forward updo and natural, romantic make-up, the bridal look is finished with pearl and crystal hairpins and fabulous fuchsia shoes. Elegant, fresh and playful, the shoot combines the refined styling many couples hope to achieve with the unbridled joy of a wedding day.
