Botanical Rock Chic


Who doesn’t love to let their rock side out every once in a while? Towards the end of 2018 we pulled together a fantastic team to create an edgy bohemian rock styled shoot. We wanted to give that rock style a soft touch with a mix of chalky blacks, dark greens, soft purples and pinks .

The Conservatory at The Secret Garden in Kent was that perfect blend of soft chic and edgy rawness, ideal for the backdrop. The space is small, intimate and full of character. The inspiration came from a lovely little parcel in the post from Nats Paper Studio with this amazing stationery suite that we featured. I loved the clematis and the romantic nature of the florals but the solid lines of the script gave it a modern and fresh look.

I hunted for a team who created bold statements that suited the style, we were lucky enough to have a piece from Story of My Dress’s new bridal collection. a beautiful layered lace gown that really pulled the dark and sultry bridal style together. Eden B provided some stunning hair pieces to match, made from delicate porcelain and beading that stood proud against the brides dark hair.

We kept the colour pallet simple and contrasting, the darker shades created the depth and edge I envisioned whilst the lighter colours softened. something I find key is to balance the blend of colours to give a round and finished look.

I had so much fun styling and planning the shoot, I really love going big and bold on a shoot and it’s up there with one of my favourites.
