The team behind today’s shoot, including Paula O’Hara, SALT Styling, and The Informal Florist, had a brilliant idea of bringing in a positively lush setting to their venue, a once dilapidated stable courtyard. The result is a look that’s refreshingly modern, while simultaneously celebrating all that the autumn season has to offer.
From the event designer, Jen of SALT Styling: The balance of nature can be seen in the everyday wonders that surround us. The concept of yin & yang is based on elements in nature which complement their opposing differences. Invite this principle into your decor; from asymmetrical blooms, a neutral muted palette to a rolling lush green landscape. With that in mind, this inspiration shoot was held in the serene surroundings of The Stables, a once dilapidated stable courtyard, set in the surroundings of the historical Newcastle Demesne Estate, where we curated the finest artisans to bring this concept to life.
With their olfactory blends of sweet summer roses and honey infused blackberry scaibosa, these asymmetrical blooms were the primary focal point to this stunning table-scape. To further tie-together this autumnal fete, a spread of delectable treats; infused with matcha green tea and topped with salted white chocolate ganache, were the perfect accompaniment for guests waiting to be seated. What better way to wash down such fancy fare then with a gin fizz cocktail, before the gathering at the ceremony?
