Modern Island-Inspired Wedding in Yorskshire

The Story: A trend-setting styled insland-inspired wedding shoot bringing holiday vibes to the UK.  Suzy, stylist & planner at Mave Weddings, said “I wanted to replicate the un-touched charm of an old Ibizan town with a modern twist of White Island vibes.” 

The Location:  The most wanted new wedding venue in North Yorkshire, White Syke Fields where the white washed wall barn was brought to life with a touch of modern boho luxe. 

The Vibe: Eclectic and laid back island chic. Extensive use of natural materials such as rattan, woven baskets, soft cottons and painted palm leaves. A variety of tropical plants were used to create depth along the aisle. For a sense of adventure, a white Suzuki Jimny was styled in and amongst the tropical plants, soft furnishings and palm fronds. The shoot also made use of the surrounding corn, maize fields and lake. 

The Details: Artisan styling touches included fringed lamps, a modern take on the peacock chair, lanterns, delicate florals and sculptural plants in abundance. Sundown Paper’s Costa Rica stationery suite was sleek, modern and chic with palm tree and monstera leaf designs adding a fun edge. Out of the Bloom’s creative floristry created the wow factor with a palm leaf feature above the table and two bespoke bouquets including calla lilies, white ferns, pink orchids and cockscomb. 


  • This shoot is all about the textures and an eclectic aesthetic. Don’t be afraid of some character.
  • Choose a destination like Ibitha as inspiration. This can be used to create the feels of a place that you love without having to get on a plane. 
  • Think outside the box – contact a local plant shop or supplier to rent plants for the day for a cost effective and sustainable option.
