Metallic, Neutral, Organic!
3 words to describe this beautiful beach styled shoot in Whitstable Kent.
As always Natasha from Natasha spencer events pulled off the perfect styled shoot.
‘When Samie Lee approached me to collaborate on a beachy Styled Shoot I leapt at the opportunity, Kent is a county surrounded by beautiful pebble beaches and I instantly felt inspired. I pulled together a mood board full of textures and neutral pallets and the striking contrast of metallics. It took all of 2 seconds to think of the perfect location, Whitstable beach is a stunning beach on the Kentish Coast. Its quirky and full of inspiration for a styled shoot.
Pulling the rest of the team together was a simple process, Essentially Hops has created some stunning instalments in the past and I knew she would understand my vision, early on Laura mentioned including Raw Cotton and I did a little happy dance. From there we spoke about organic and free shapes of arrangements with pampas grass, cotton, sandy roses and deep burgundy foliage. With Love and Lace bridal’s dresses were to die for, soft and romantic with beautiful silhouettes well suited to Kent Bridal Hair’s bohemian plaited style and the perfect contract to the dramatic make up by Michelle Vincent. I adore styling with contrasts, textures and blending styles and the brides look is the perfect example of this.
The table setting was a continuation, we used a rough palette as a low table, with a soft fabric runner, an abundance of cushions and throws for seating with organic style crockery from Classic Crockery. Willow Beau Stationery was an exciting addition to the team with her creativity and beautiful calligraphy style, we discussed agate place names, a soft and flowing fabric table plan and the raw edged organic paper she used to create the stunning invitation suite. She took the brief and ran with the ideas and they were the perfect compliment to the rest of the styling.
The whole day ran like clockwork, we had great fun on the beach and I cannot thank all those involved enough’.
