It's like Christmas has arrived early...
Our rustic styled wedding shoot that I planned and brought together in September has been featured on Brides Up North!
I wanted to bring the warm, abundant feel of the early autumn season together with lots of fruits on the table, big red roses, and gold accents – romantic and timeless against the wood and stone of The Barn at Yew Tree Farm (a beautiful, newly renovated working farm wedding venue in Liverpool).
The wooden furniture that Wirral Table and Chair Hire have in their collection is beautiful, and I chose burgundy seat cushions to carry the warm, deep red colours through into the furniture. They also have 5ft LOVE letters, something a little softer than the white signs that might suit a different venue. We also repurposed stackable wooden cable reel stools as a cake table.
Wachadoin Events set a gorgeous rustic backdrop up in the outside area of the barn. They had recently created decorated hoops out of a repurposed tree trunk, which looked amazing dressed with roses, and gold terrarium candles. We carried this theme through to the table setting, with driftwood down the centre decorated using gold terrarium candles, and so much fruit provided and prepared by Cheeky Chilli Events.
Lisa’s natural curly hair paired with Tracey’s floral crowns were the perfect match for our relaxed and rustic autumn style, and so we didn’t style Lisa’s hair at all for our shoot. I did want her to have a day through to night time look however, and so Carol at Bridal Reloved Liverpool brought along romantic floral and lace dresses for the beginning of the day, which Laura from Kilfoyle Makeup matched with toned down makeup and a pink flower crown from Rusty Rose.
As we moved through the day and into the evening, Laura added darker lipstick and makeup to Lisa, and we switched to a more fitted off the shoulder dress and red roses.
