Upton country court yard styled shoot, Dorset…

The sun was shinning beyond belief last week when I had the pleasure of joining some awesome Dorset wedding suppliers on a glamorous styled shoot… I was most excited about creating a floral centrepiece to hang from the centre of a tipi, not only was it challenging but it was my first time creating something so large… Carla and I from Coastal tents had such good fun planning and making this the day before the shoot crafting the hoop from moss and rustic twisted willow…

The floral chandelier was dressed in a base of textured foliage’s from ferns and tropical glossy leaves to woodland silver birch and trailing silver eucalyptus. Large blooms of scented lilac were dotted here and there amongst the foliage along with hanging white peonies and hanging globe tea lights for the ultimate romantic glow…

The chandelier was suspended above the tipi’s awesome fire pit which made such a statement, I couldn’t think of anything better than socialising around this with a big glass of bubbly…

Our next creation was the table styling… The fabulous and much admired ladies from Linen & Lace where on board and presented the most beautiful tableware from crystal wine glasses, mix and match crockery with emerald green and gold designs, to recycled glass bottles…

I love the wild textured foliage bouquet too… it was pretty big but it looke so goos up against all the different styled dresses…

I had such good fun working with the best wedding suppliers Dorset has to offer… as follows… Coastal tent hire… Linen & Lace, Sadie Osborne photography, kirsten Sare make up artist and hair stylist, bridal re-loved, vintage china hire & Lisa knotely cake design
