Get ready for a bold fiesta of hot pinks and happy Mediterranean vibes in this featured shoot, as the talented suppliers bring a taste of destination wedding Spain to you, our lovely brides and grooms-to-be. Inspo indeed!
Planner and designer Jen at My Pretties UK, based in West Yorkshire, turns her talents to creating a styled shoot (as part of a workshop) to wow and woo you with their take on the theme and concept of ‘Romance Language’.
Soak up this romantic, colourful shoot, capturing the very essence of Spain and bringing it home to the North of England. Live out all your festival, wedding party fantasies at White Skye Fields near York, the ultimate blank canvas venue just waiting for you to unleash your creative side.
This sun-kissed shoot has gone all out with the full fresh carnation garlands, dried palms and pampas grass installations and the coolest huge floral sofa! Featuring heaps of warm tones and pops of vibrant pinks, and we love that everyone involved was kept happy and full of the finest Mexican catering, in-keeping with the theme! Now, that’s how you do a shoot day!
Jen says: ‘Romance Language’ is the second styled workshop to come from My Prettiest Workshops.
With this theme we wanted to capture the romance and vibrancy of Spain and their beautiful festival style weddings. We might not be able to get our travel on right now, thanks to Covid, so we tried to bring that vibe to Yorkshire.
Blank canvas venue, White Syke Fields is the perfect place to really make your own. With the help of my amazing team we turned the white, walled outhouse into a bright and busy ‘destination’ wedding. White Syke Fields is a characterful, wedding, party and event space based at Sand Hutton near York.
Emma from The Petal Studio based in Crossgates, Leeds, created fresh carnation garlands which hung from the walls, beams and wicker furniture. She used a mix of bright fresh florals, dried palms and pampas for the big installations. One of my favourite creations was the huge floral sofa installation. In the bouquet and table displays, she used fresh chillies and lots of bright seasonal flowers.
Born Boho Hire offer beautifully adventurous prop hire and venue styling for weddings and events. Based Beverley, they cover Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.
The stationery by UNVEILED Network Member Gray Starling Designs and cakes from Where The Ribbon Ends were made to complement each other perfectly, with the mosaic tile designs in red, teal and yellow. The table-scape is definitely one of my favourites and captured the fun, fiesta vibe just perfectly.
Where The Ribbon Ends offer deliciously elegant, award-winning wedding cakes based in North Yorkshire, along with other bespoke celebration cakes and plenty of sweet treats. Gray Starling Designs is a unique and wonderful design studio based in Roundhay, North Leeds.
The Rustic Rose Company offer wedding and events props and lighting hire. They’re based in North Yorkshire and Leicestershire. Silk ribbons were provided by Laik Style, who make natural hand dyed fabrics and ribbons and are based in Derbyshire.
Poppy’s Perspective, boho and vintage inspired bridalwear handmade in the UK supplied the gowns for the shoot. The dresses provided couldn’t have been any more perfect for our models. The vintage lace range really added to the theme of ‘the language of romance’. UNVEILED Network Member Rebecca Anne Designs even made us a bespoke, embroidered veil with that very sentence on it. They make luxury, personalised and vintage veils handmade in Somerset.
Hannah says: The weather was a little grey in the morning but the sun came out in the afternoon and it was perfect lighting. Unlike most workshops, each photographer got some one to one time with the models so we could capture the photos we wanted. My photography is all about capturing joyfulness and expression from warm-hearted people and I love documenting genuine laughter and real moments between couples.
A great mexican lunch was provided for all attendees by El Kantina, Mexican catering. The whole mood of the day was fun and creative.
Hopefully I’ll be photographing three micro weddings and a vow renewal this side of Christmas. The 2022 diary is now open and I’m taking bookings. It’s been a tough year for the wedding industry but I believe that love will win and weddings will continue, and the industry is so creative it will continue to adapt with the times.
