Rustic barn wedding photography: lemon and lilac inpsired shoot
At the beginning of this year I had the absolute pleasure of working with dream stylist Kate Cullen on an absolutely stunning styled shoot at Oxleaze Barn. I’m stoked to be able to now share these images with you after an amazing feature in Perfect Wedding Magazine.
When Kate came to me with the idea for this shoot I was excited, the inspiration was drawn from the fact that stronger colour palettes are becoming more and more popular and purple is an all-time wedding industry favourite we wanted to give it a bit of a twist by mixing it with yellow. Now, those two colours may sound garish together, but when you team the right shades and tones with Kate’s eye for styling then the perfect palette is born for a rustic barn wedding!
As well as creating a modern twist on a classic wedding colour, we used bridal separates for our (gorgeous) model as this is an ever growing popular trend and it’s easy to see why… They are luscious! The separates were teamed with luxurious gold hair accessories and jewellery.
If you’re looking to recreate this rustic yet elegant bar wedding style then mix these colours mosses and greenery for a rustic look or bloomy white florals for a more urban look. Coloured linens and glassware along with gold cutlery is an easy way to add accent colours to your table setting and we have always been a fan of experimenting with crockery although keeping it matching is a definite fave and keeps with the luxe feel.
A warehouse or barn wedding is a great blank canvases and the possibilities are endless. If you love the idea of this sort of venue but the idea of decorating or styling terrifies you then seek to work with a stylist such as Kate to take off the stress.
