We have something truly beautiful for you today with this gorgeous organic textures inspired bridal shoot. With the stunning backdrop of Royal Geographical Society the creative team behind this shoot have created something magical. The pictures by Fiona Kelly capture the styling in its full glory. We are in awe of the organic texture details of this shoot, from the thistles and pheasant feathers to the wooden place names. Everything about this shoot oozes elegance, and we hope you are inspired by these beautiful pictures.
“For this shoot we wanted to create a style that used textures as the starting point, and we loved the idea of simple, elegant yet detailed styling with depth.
“Fiona Kelly’s beautiful images showcase lush, organic textures and show how, with a few simple touches, you can create an elegant, stylish wedding.
“The shoot took place at the Royal Geographical Society in London, and the classic, simple lines of the Main Hall provided the perfect backdrop for the opulent top table. Blue Sky Flowers created a dramatic display, dressing the table in layers of eucalyptus, green bells and ivory majolica roses, adding a touch of luxury with bronze spray painted ferns and eryngium thistles. The organic look was finished off with a scattering of pheasant feathers.
“Kate Ruth Romey created the earthy looking stationery, using brown paper and wooden details for the place settings.
“Our bride, Bryony, wore ‘Callie’ from Jennie Packham, a simple tulle sequin embellished wedding gown. We added a bronze ribbon belt to coordinate with the floral arrangements and pull the look together, and Bryony’s hair was styled into a classic updo with a modern twist, by Sjaniel Turrell.
“The elegant ivory wedding cake was decorated with delicate sugar flowers in the same muted colours as the tablescape and the bouquet, which was a unique organic arrangement of broom, ivory hydrangea and majolica spray roses and the lovely pheasant feathers again.
“Our stylist Andri Benson made the ingenious table plan, a clever combination of brown luggage tags suspended from giant wire globes. The wire detail was also incorporated into the place settings with twirly bronze plate chargers and nests for the cute bronze, mini cakes provided by Little Boutique Bakery.
“The second gown Bryony wore was a classic, elegant design, Kobus Dippenaar ‘AG-12-022’, supplied by Morgan-Davies Bridal, who also provided all the accessories for the shoot.
“We accessorised the gown with a sequinned belt and the fabulous bronze shrug by Jesus Peiro to give the right amount of shimmer.
“Bryony’s look was more laid back with a modern, fishtail plait and classic, natural make-up. Shoes throughout were provided by Marsha Hall.”
