dainty daisies. a spring wedding styled shoot in liverpool

April 30th, 2015 | Julia Braime

Pixsmiths Creative Photography Spring Wedding Styled Shoot (33)

Luxury wedding florists Katey and Edward Burke’s vision was to create a luxury one-stop-wedding-shop with like-minded and quality, high-end wedding suppliers all in one place.  At The Blue Orchid Wedding Boutique couples can relax in the knowledge that their suppliers know each other and work well together, offering quality products and services, coordinating their wedding seamlessly between them.

This, their first styled shoot took place at the very popular 30 James St – Home of the Titanic in Liverpool and was inspired by The Blue Orchid Boutique’s in-house stationer Cheryl of Pink Sherbet Stationery and her pretty ‘Ava’ collection in coral and ivory with touches of navy.

We think it’s perfectly pretty!

cheryl says: My ‘Ava’ stationery collection is perfect for the spring season with it’s dainty daisy like floral pattern and contrasting bold stripes.  As soon as the team had chosen this design they went to work, each of us creating their own contribution and interpretation of the theme.

Our boutique’s resident florist Katey put together a handheld posy of coral ‘Miss Piggy’ roses with lisianthus to highlight the colours of the design, and selected bouvardia, coral santini and wax flower to match the lovely little daisy flower shapes in the pattern work.

Katey created a beautiful tall table centre display and framed my luxury pearl embellished seating plan with floral loveliness!  Fresh flower framed seating plans are becoming a very popular wedding centrepiece; they really do have the wow factor!

Katey is also lucky enough to have a very photogenic daughter who was more than willing to model a beautiful origami head circlet and flower girl posy by our talented in-house origamist Anne.  Again matching the colours beautifully and hand-finished with pearl and diamante embellishments, which made an appearance on everything from the stationery, cake, table centrepiece, bridal bouquet and the origami work.

The exceptionally talented Sue from Bella’s Cake Pantry worked her magic with an outstanding coral cake with flowers to match the stationery design cascading down the tiers, also picking up the stripes with beautiful grosgrain ribbon as a way of adding some subtle navy detail.

The boutique’s venue dresser Melanie of Elegant Twist ensured the table and chairs were dressed to perfection with coral and ivory sashes and cute satin ribbon bows around the napkins to match the binding on the bridal bouquet.

It is clear from the photographs that the team is passionate about attention to detail.  We believe it’s the finishing touches that make a wedding special and totally unique.  It’s the little details that photographers love to capture and who better to photograph them for the photo shoot than the wonderful husband and wife team Sandy and Dave of Pixsmiths Creative Photography!  They captured the beauty of the theme and grandeur of the venue with absolute perfection.

It’s undeniable that having a group of suppliers who work so well together is invaluable when it comes to planning a wedding, especially if you want to ensure every aspect fits together seamlessly!  We are excited to share more themed photo shoots over the coming months.
