We love showcasing the talents of yorkshire wedding suppliers and this latest styled shoot sets the bar even higher!
So we’re thrilled that Stylist Cristel Issatt from Shindig Event Styling who coordinated the shoot has shared her thoughts on how together they made the wedding magic happen!
Cristel explains: “Our shoot was a real mix of new and established suppliers, which made for a fantastic team on the day, with everyone bringing different skills to the table.”
Tell us about your vision for the shoot?
The Faversham is a pretty cool venue, known by most clubbers in Leeds for throwing their huge garden parties every summer. We wanted to reflect the fun, free-spirited nature of the venue in the shoot, hence the bright colours, the balloons, the photo-booth pics, the quirky cake, and the relaxed nature of the shots. We also used a real couple for our Bride and Groom – neither of whom had modelled before – to give the pics a real authenticity. We think you can see the real love and warmth and humour between them in the photos, it’s definitely something we’d do again.
We love the fact you’ve added some different elements, such as the over-sized balloons and the photo booth was this always the plan?
Yes, absolutely. We believe when shooting that by bringing in a wider variety of suppliers you can better get across the feel of a venue, a wedding, and of course really add some interest and value to the shoot.
How did you feel overall when you’d finished the shoot? What was the one thing you’ll take away from it?
Shattered! We shot it on the hottest day of the year – the bride was actually getting sunburn lines when outside. Everyone was absolutely amazing on the day in overcoming what was a pretty big challenge with the heat… the cake actually melted, as did all the taper candles (and they weren’t actually lit). But it was such a buzz when we’d done it, we knew we had some amazing photos, and the teamwork and camaraderie was really heart-warming. Most wedding suppliers work on their own much of the time, so it’s really inspiring to work with a big team and see just what you can achieve when you come together.
