styled shoot: country girl meets city boy

Morning all and what a beautiful shoot I have to share with you today!  It’s no secret I am a huge fan of a yellow and grey wedding, to me it’s the perfect mix of contemporary style and romance.  That’s exactly what stylist Jaclyn of 6Pence Weddings set out to achieve when coming up with the concept for this inspiration shoot, photographed by Canadian wedding photographer Jamie Delaine.

What I love most about this shoot are all the pretty details, the use of a soft, buttery yellow that is fresh and modern, but still pretty.  Whilst the table set up is formal, the floral arrangements are unstructured and almost rustic, which adds a soft, romantic quality, and the trio of cakes are totally adorable!

Here’s Jaclyn with a little more about her inspiration for the shoot ~

“The concept for the photo shoot was “country girl meets city boy”. I wanted to create something that was classic country, but not over the top barn rustic.  I decided to let my colour choice guide that appearance. The yellow and grey scheme is really popular this season for modern styled weddings so I think the colours helped the shoot remain current.”

“Florist, Heather from Greenstems, always uses the most unique arrangement of florals, making her one of my favourites! You can always expect something great. I simply told her the colours for the shoot and some attempt of an explanation for what I was imagining in my head and as always, she came through!  Heather says ~ Yellow and grey has been one of this summer’s hottest trends with wedding design.  We mirrored the concept of “country girl meets city boy” with the florals in choosing stems like the crespedia for the bolder choice and softening it with more traditional stems such as the double hearted roses and ranunculus.  The perfect marriage of bold and beautiful.”

“My favourite detail from the photo shoot has to be the hand written doily place mats. They took me a very long time to write, and my hand was extremely sore, but they looked so pretty!”

The elegant details and romantic charm of this shoot would be beautiful and easy to recreate for your own garden or marquee summer wedding.  Use chivari style chairs (from any good hire company) for a modern & elegant look and a mix of light grey and charcoal linens to create a base for the flowers to stand out against.  Talk to your florist about combining softer blooms like roses and gardenia with more structured ranunculus and crespedia. The doily table plan and place settings would make a great DIY project too, you could write by hand or pop through your printer with a pretty font for a similar effect!
