Retro, Music Venue Bridal Inspiration…
Today we have an alternative, low-key inspiration shoot with cool Rock n Roll vibes.
Lib From Bettie Rose…
We were all really keen on the idea of using green as a soft natural, calm colour against the harsh brickwork of the venue and also it fit very nicely with the Green Door Store itself. I added touches of yellow to the flowers to highlight some of the yellow detail in the venue and also some whites to lighten and brighten.
Our inspiration was the Green Door Store, a music venue local to us in Brighton. We loved the exposed brickwork and got pretty excited about styling the venue. The shoot evolved from there, once we had our rock and roll venue we found a couple of really stylish models and the shoot built itself around what we thought would work with them, the look took a bit of a retro 70’s turn. Once we found our beautiful model Danika we felt that a bridal jumpsuit was the only way forward!
The colour green became a real focus for us so finding out afterwards that Pantone has named greenery it’s colour of 2017 was a real bonus! The shoot represents the kind of fun low key wedding we as creative stylists and designers would want for ourselves and Brighton is the perfect city to be in to enjoy that.
The great thing about an old run down venue or barn there are many details already there you can accentuate with your styling. There tend to be nails in the wall you can utilise or structures you can hang decorations from. We just worked with what was available to us and were able to create a floral archway and some hanging bottles off the wall.
Thanks for sharing, everyone! x
