Spanish Coastal Romance- The Full Story

Well it´s Monday again and no matter how sunny the day may be I know you all need a little it of cheering up! So feast your eyes below on the full collection of Images from our Styled Wedding Shoot´Spanish Coastal Romance´ that was recently featured on Style Me Pretty. These images were shot by Renee Hollingshead Photography.

So now for the full story!

Back in September two amazingly talented young ladies from America found me via Pinterest. Renee and Caitlin, they approached me and asked if I would be willing to work with them both on a Styled Wedding Shoot here in Spain. They had a multi-destination trip planned for November and December,  travelling through Europe, shooting destination wedding Inspiration Shoots! Of course, I said yes as soon as I saw the level of talent I was dealing with and also felt extremely privileged that they had asked me!

So, we booked a Skype call and before we knew it we had a plan all laid out! Renee, Caitlin and myself wanted to create a wild beach shoot, encompassing the elements of Southern Spain and utilising two key colours from the 2015 Wedding Colour Palette! We choose to work with the Strawberry Ice and Tangerine colours, to inspire Spring and Summer weddings for 2015!

#SpanishCoastalRomance had been born.

In keeping with the wild and romantic Spanish beach wedding theme, we wanted the florals to look unstructured, natural and wild. I hand- made a garland for the table dressing and Renee Assisted me with a wild bouquet for our Bride, adorned with streaming ribbons! I also hand made the Olive and lavender Crown too! We spent days collecting olive, lemon, orange and lavender foliage all from the countryside, a selection of rose and carnation blooms gave us that colour pop we needed.  Incorporating both fresh oranges and strawberries to the table décor added to the popping colours and natural elements in the shoot. Jesus, Renee and I all worked on drawing the Olive branches and hand writing the rustic wooden signs.

We created two table settings. A cake table with a naked cake, a vintage ombre cake and a meringue kisses cake by The Meringue Shop. We also created a Sweetheart Table for the wedding couple on the Shoreline, the calm blue sea made for the perfect backdrop.

The tables were dressed in antique pieces inherited from my grandparents, cut glass cake stands and vases, vintage tea cups and saucers, the beautiful dinner plates adorned with a brides bouquet were one of my favourite accessories.

I am mad about ombre and spent hours hand dying the napkins and a Spanish lace table dressing. The semi naked cake and the vintage style ombre cake´s were all about incorporating a modern vintage feel and I was keen to get as much ombre and dip dye into the shoot as possible! All of the colour elements  pop through in the details perfectly, creating a romantic but bright and fresh feel.

Our beautiful Bride for the day was Marianna from MAC Models and Casting. A gorgeous Spanish girl with a romantic, organic look that suited the shoot perfectly!

Working alongside Renee and Caitlin was such a pleasure, their images are amazing and they take so much care to capture all of the details we worked so hard to create! The full team were fabulous and it was so much fun on the day, all working away together and supporting each other!
