When the amazing photographer that is Kaylea Moreno contacted me from her home town in Michigan, asking me to style a shoot for her, I immediately said YES! Her work around the globe is inspiring and I knew we could create something awesome together! We wanted to tell the story of a simplistic elopement, that went hand in hand with the surroundings of the local area, which we picked to be Bude, in Cornwall. The stunning location of Launcells Barton was perfect, with its beautiful house and barns and the rolling hills that surrounded it.
The styling details were kept simple and I worked with the tones of the backdrop and tried to keep it a natural and organic as possible, using earthy tones, neutral linen, ceramic plates and silverware and adding some fawn coloured candles to add some warmth. We worked with another amazing local supplier, The Garden Gate Flower Company, who created an awesome seasonal bouquet and centrepiece which complemented the detail of the shoot perfectly, bringing everything together.
