Back in July last year I was lucky enough to collaborate with some of my friends on a styled shoot at the GORGEOUS Highfield House Wedding Venue. This venue is, without a doubt, one of the hidden gems in the East Yorkshire Countryside.
From the Great Gatsby styling and decor to the beautiful grounds, this wedding venue is absolutely stunning start to finish and is right up my street! Don’t you just LOVE a chaise lounge?!
Enough Talking… Let’s See Highfield House Wedding Venue
Inspiration For The Shoot At Highfield House
Vicki from Vicki Johnston Flowers Said…
I decided to organise a shoot to launch my new business… after 27 years of weddings and helping other florist shops grow their reputations as wedding florists I decided to go it alone!!
I have to admit it was a last-minute decision to plan the shoot…4 days before in fact…. After exhibiting at Dunedin country house i wanted to capture the beauty of the designs I had created.. and instantly knew where ….Highfield House without a doubt with its vibrant and charming character. Having worked with Aaron, Beyond the Frame, throughout the past 6 years, I knew it was his style and amazing creative skill I needed to add to the mix! Along with the stunning gowns, Michelle at Bridal reloved Beverley brought along…I knew we were going to create something special!!
The final piece, a decision I had made long before the shoot was an option, were the models… Tiar ..a striking, petite, dark-haired beauty whos body covered in art was my inspiration for the whole thing… my daughter!! Like Highfield… shes edgy but classy and not afraid of making a statement.
Neive… dainty, adorable blonde… a total contrast.. delicate, sweet and innocent. Both models applied their own makeup.
With the flowers. I wanted to create a romantic natural feel with muted colours, blousy hydrangea and peony and lots of textured foliage. I feel this season is all about big statement bouquets with flowing lines and pops of colour. I also created a few neat designs with pods and poppy heads, roses and scented eucalyptus.. so whilst enjoying the beauty of the flowers we could still feast our eyes on the elegance of the gowns. Fresh flower crowns and headwear were a last-minute add… so glad I did!! They looked amazing!!
The whole day was so relaxed and fun… I can’t wait to work with this fabulous creative team again soon!
