Beautifully Bright Modern Wedding Inspired by Honey Bees

Camilla J Hards Photography  and  Party Squared  sprinkle  B.LOVED  today  with  this  bright  and  beautiful  wedding  inspired  by  sweet  Honey  Bees! “Showcasing  a  combination  of  creative  and  unique  elements,  modern styling and  luxury  artisan  accessories.  The  idea  was  to  compliment the  beautiful geometric  features  in  grade  II  listed  school  house  venue,  The Old  Parish  Rooms and  to  use  crisp  white  backdrop  and  abundance  of  natural  light  to  create  a  light  and  romantic  wedding  set  up  with  a  boho  feel.

Visual  inspiration  for  the  shoot was taken  from honey  bees;  honeycomb shapes and  patterns, and  pretty  garden flowers.  The  colour  palette  was  created by  selecting  a  combination  of  warm  honey  hues,  adding  a  modern  bold  mustard  yellow  and  soft  pale  pink  to  both  contrast  and  compliment.

With  imaginative  design as  the  focus  for  this  chic bohemian  wedding,  a  number  of  artisan  wedding  creatives  were  sourced  to  collaborate on  the  shoot.  What  Katy  Did  Next supplied  handmade  honeybee  hair  accessories  and  a  pair  of  hexagonal  earrings  created  especially  for  the  shoot.  Black  and  Sigi supplied  a  series  of  handmade  wire  and  stone  bangles  for  our  boho  bride. Pen  and  Fold created  intricate  laser  cut  wedding  stationery;  including  honeycomb table  numbers and  place  names, hexagonal  invitations  and  save  the  date  cards.

The  bridal  styling,  hair  and makeup  were  classic  and  elegant  with  a  hint  of  bohemia.  The  bride  wore the Nicole  dress  from  Nicole  Spose  from  the  Turner  and  Pennell  Bridal  Gallery  and  a  handmade  cloak  style  veil with  lace  detail from  Sash  and  Veil. The  makeup look  created  by  Alexandra  Sullivan  was  natural  and  pretty  using  the  pink  tones from  the  colour  palette. It focused  on  featuring  the  bride’s  brilliant  blue  eyes.The  hair  style a classic  and  sophisticated  sweeping  up  do was created  by  Gemini  Styling to  include  the  beautiful  hair  accessories  chosen  for  the  shoot.


Collaboration  and  creativity was  at  the  heart  of  the  styling. Suppliers worked in  tandem  aligning  their skills  and  vision  to  craft contemporary  and  interesting  geometric  features. Party  Squared and  Pinkface Cakes  worked  together  to  create  a  unique  and  bespoke  cake  display.  Taking  inspiration from  the  royal  wedding,  and  the  royal  couples’  decision  to break  with  tradition,  a bespoke  cake  display  was  designed  that  allowed  the  cakes  to  stack without being  stacked.  Each  cake  tier  was  placed  on  its  own  mini  cake  stand  and  displayed  within  the  honeycomb  structure.  The  ivory  wedding  cakes  were decorated  with  a  honeycomb  design,  tiny  gold  honey  bees  and  delicate  roses.

The  flowers by The Botanical Shed were  bold in  colour  and  styling,  yet  soft  and textured.  Mustard,  pale  pink  and  yellow  were  married  with  lush  green  garden  greenery  including  hornbeam  and  rosemary. The  natural  country  garden  feel of  the  backdrop  flowers  and  bouquet  were  inspired  by bee  friendly flowers,  wild  meadows and  gardens.  Beautiful  Penny  Lane and  Earl  Grey  roses were  combined  with quirky  craspedia  and  cottony smoke bush,  rosemary  and  hornbeam.  These  unique  choices brought interest  and  plenty  of  texture to  the  shoot  and  added  warmth  and  contrast  to  the colour  palette.

Glass  charger  plates  edged  with  gold,  gold  cutlery  and  pretty  pink  orange  glassware  were  placed  around  a  bespoke  honeycomb  table centre on  traditional  crisp  white  linens.  Geometric  gold  lanterns,  tea  lights,  tall  dinner candles  from  the  Party  Squared  hire  collection  and miniature  floral  arrangements  decorated  the  centre  of  the  table.  Laser  cut  place  names  from  Pen  and  Fold  adorned  each  place  setting. The  décor  was  completed  with  a  framed  laser  cut  table  number  in  a  coordinating  range.”
