From Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography – “I wanted to create a first look inspired shoot since despite its popularity in North America, not as many couples in the UK opt in for it.
It is such a romantic and intimate moment between the couple and it frees up a lot of time for the couple to enjoy their guests later on in the day. I thought doing a First Look inspired shoot would help bring more attention to this option and encourage couples to consider going against tradition!”
From Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography – “The shoot is intended to be soft, whimsical and romantic but also luxurious while reflecting the grand and stately location we used. We went with soft peaches and mint greens with gold, the perfect complement against the rich tones of the interior, and the lush Scottish countryside.
Our venue was Springkell House Hotel, which is a stunning stately home with beautiful grounds. We carried out a pre-shoot with our stylists to inspire them and help us to use the grounds and venue to its full potential. It also gave us further creative inspiration needed for the photos and the story we wanted to create.”
From LemonBox Studios – “We wanted to create a romantic and whimsical feel using soft colors to reflect the palate of the beautiful venue, with pops of brighter shades of peach and mint to add a contemporary twist and gold highlights to create a of fusion of modern & classic vintage. The colors were emphasized further by using peaches on the table and by the gorgeously soft and elegant florals which were supplied by Lavender Blue Glasgow. We love to create contrasts not just using color but also textures and materials. The chunky rustic timber tabletop with delicate lace pattern offset with contemporary ghost chairs. Soft ribbons mixing chintzy patterns, mint & peach satin & romantic lace all hung from a crisp white frame to create a colorful & intimate canopy for the table whilst providing a backdrop to the vintage chandelier centerpiece.
All the details work together to finish the look, including stationery, favors, signage and a beautiful oversized floral printed backdrop for designed & made by Little Cake Parlour. We wanted to continue the theme out to the stunning gardens where we set up a lounge area complete with our hand painted hanging bench sofa. The mossy & gnarly tree branch contrasts perfectly with the elegant furniture and a sparkling chandelier to provide a romantic setting for the bride and groom.”
