Welcome back to The Isabloom Blog that has been abandoned for a very long time! Weddings, babies and life got in the way. But... we are back and back with a bang to share with you our styled shoot at Elmore Court 'Rock and Roll meets disco'.

Myself and my good friend Rosie from RAW makeup spent months and months planning what we wanted to be an absolutely epic shoot with a group of some of the best South West luxe wedding suppliers. This shoot embraces individuality and brings the party vibe that so many modern couples demand. Elmore Court was the venue of choice, known as ‘The Party House’ to the Guise family it oozes fun and character. I am going to take you through each part of the shoot and I really hope you love it as much as I do... Please scroll through each image block.

Lets begin with talking about the styling and the look. The style and colour palette were designed around the florals which took centre stage. I chose the Pantone colour of the year Viva Magenta as the base colour complimented with reds and neutrals, and doesn’t it look epic?! Moving forward with the trends right now its all about colour explosions and just being more daring and fun with design. Foliage isn't really anywhere to be seen right now so I wanted to use a collection of big and bold blooms that oozed luxury.

Fashion was a huge part of the shoot to capture the vision. We selected French designer Rime Arodaky from The Mews Bridal as we fell in love with her relaxed fashion forward designs. We wanted our bride to feel effortlessly beautiful and sexy while being comfortable. Personalised leather jackets and white cowboy boots added the edge we so desired.

The bridal bouquet was simplistic yet had the wow factor with the flowers and colour doing the talking and the buttonhole simply complimented this.

The hair by Halo Hair and Beauty and makeup by RAW complimented the vibe perfectly with a simplistic approach using beautifully luxurious products. The artists changed it up for the ‘evening’ with hair down and a red lip which only meant one thing... party time!

We began with a ceremony set up, but this wasn't your traditional ceremony. Miranda our lovely celebrant in her epic hot pink suit conducted a fun tequila ceremony with a gorgeous and meaningful hand fasting ribbon section. Following the meaningful bit it was back to the fun with a pink fizz champagne tower delicately put together by our amazing stylist Rachel.

The ceremony was set against our breathtaking flower pole which was bursting with blooms and colour creating the perfect feature for your guests and those all important shots. Some delicate yet bold aisle meadows and ceremony table flowers finished it off perfectly. All of the flower designs here could be reused throughout the wedding which is always so important to us. Waste simply isn't what we do here at Isabloom.

It was then out to the beautiful entrance of Elmore Court for those all important post ceremony step confetti shots. We decorated the steps with the flower pole and the aisle meadows creating yet another beautiful setting. The flowers were complimented by the gorgeously modern signage by Love Flora and we wanted to up the disco vibes at this point so cue some disco balls!

A really fun part of the shoot was creating a photo opportunity which is what a lot of couples want at their wedding but this really wasn't your average kind of backdrop and would have guests queuing up for their opportunity! We filled this stunning old Fiat from Lil & Blue with the most amazing flower displays. We created a cascade of blooms spilling out of the car and designed a meadow like display across the trunk, all made even cooler thanks to the amazing fabric banner by Day Dreamer.

As the sun set across Elmore we also got some amazing footage of the couple chucking all the flowers into the back seat and driving off into their happy ever after. Just like being back in the good old days when couples would drive off to catch a flight somewhere tropical, rattling and all!

The final part of the day was of course the reception / wedding breakfast. Myself and stylist Rachel decided to go with a long banquet style table and we decorated it with gorgeous florals along with all of her lovely tapered candles, black candle sticks and gold charger plates etc. How amazing are her mini disco balls by the way? Imagine these are your wedding favours.

I went for mini meadows to decorate the centre of the table. This is great instead of a garland on a long table so you actually have space for other things such as wine etc. This style table can get crowded. I then created a bit of a showstopper at the head of the table with another cascade design, disco balls bursting out telling everyone its nearly party time!

The ceremony meadows and pole were once again reused to create this totally epic cake area. Orchid Kitchen created an absolute piece of delicious art and the floral setting just made it pop.

Looking back at this shoot makes me feel immensely proud of myself, Rosie and everyone involved. It is amazing what can happen when creatives come together and support one another. Same again next year everyone!?
