The Chaos of Stars – Something Blue Wedding Inspiration
Today we’re in love with this styled wedding shoot inspired by a poem and the beautiful venue which has been carefully reflected in the gorgeous elements all stunningly photographed and brought to life by the talented Lucy Davenport Photography.
“And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.” ― Kiersten White,
I’ll hand over to Lucy to tell us more about how the looks came together and how you can interpret them for your own wedding with style and bolder choices whist remaining elegant and chic.
Lucy: Something blue was inspired by the private dining room at Paradise by way of Kensal Green. The room has the most gorgeous tones of blues which I wanted to be the emphasis of the shoot. Collaborating with a fantastic team, I drew in cool blues, greys and golds throughout all aspects.
I wanted a relaxed, bohemian look so approached Lucy Purbrick, one of the stylists at The Mews of Notting Hill and both herself and Lauren there shared my vision and selected stunning pieces from Laure de Sagazan and Rime Arodaky (including a rock chic jacket!). Lucy was also there on the day to help style the model and bring her look together.
I’ve worked with Ana Ospina Make up and Jo Irving from Lovehair many times so I was delighted to have them on board for this shoot to complete the models look.
The gold hair accessories were from the talented Kelly Spence, along with gorgeous pale grey suede shoes from Emmy. To complete the boho look I used various pieces from Cotton & Gems including rings, bangles and ear cuffs.
Award winning florist, Sarah Harper was a huge asset to the team. Sarah took the reins for the styled table, incorporating the various pieces I’d sourced from Helene Millot along with her beautiful oversized succulents and the table runner of eucalyptus to maintain the subtle hues. Sarah also created a stunning bouquet for the model using eucalyptus, blue thistles, muscari and blue delphiniums.
I was also inspired by the poem The Chaos of Stars. Using natural dyed silk ribbon from Lancaster and Cornish, calligrapher Lamplighter London wrote the poem onto it. This was used for the bouquet.
Lamplighter London also produced the stationery with gold ink on subtle blue and cream textured papers. She also wrote the poem for Cakes by Krishanthi to use on the incredible 3 tier blue and gold leaf cake.
