When this styled shoot first landed in our inbox, we just knew that our lovely readers would adore it. The planner, Deanna Melia from Your Forever After, tells us: “I chose the Singleton Lodge as I specialise in outdoor weddings, and the hotel is absolutely stunning. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, there was so much space, and luckily for us, the weather was beautiful. Adam Tranter Wedding Photography was the main photographer. I’d seen his work before and fell in love with it. He brought along Photo Gee Photography, who helped capture beautiful photographs throughout the day.”
Sonje Jones Design Team provided the flowers, bouquets, ivy, table linen and centrepiece. “I’d seen their work previously and loved it,” says Deanna. “I chose to do a soft colour palette, including light blues, pinks and lots of greenery. I decorated the swing with flowers and ivy as well as soft colours to tie everything together, and I think this gave the shoot an imprint of me as a planner. For the table, we used a pink satin table cover which contrasted with the blue plates and silver cutlery. Isabella Grace Wedding Cake Design created a phenomenal cake that was a three-tier traditional design that looked elegant and luxurious. The wedding favours were from a local business called Happy Hampers. I asked her to provide small favours that could be incorporated into our theme, and it’s safe to say she nailed it! Inside the gorgeous boxes were small white rose wax melts, a keyring ‘key to the heart’, a small heart with a message on and some love heart sweets. The larger package had a children’s activity pack inside to keep kids occupied during the wedding.
“I chose my sister and one of my friends to model as the bridesmaids as I think it’s important to show real people in a shoot. Moments In Time Bridal provided the bride’s dress, veil and shoes. She’s a lovely lady who’s very honest, professional and the dress caught my eye because of the lace at the top, chiffon at the bottom and low neckline. The model, Emily, felt comfortable wearing it, which was important to me as I wanted her to feel happy during the shoot. Della from 52 Reasons did the stationery. The pieces were fantastic quality, and I was so happy with how it was executed.”
Pixie Dust Make Up Artist did the models’ make-up. “I wanted a delicate and subtle look,” explains Deanna. “I didn’t want anything too heavy, and as she had worked in the TV industry, she truly wowed me. The whole shoot was inspired by what my dream wedding would be, and I think I executed it well, and I hope it gives inspiration to others.”
