Glitter look inspiration shoot at Aynhoe Park

Shoes: Emmy Shoes

Following on from the romantic wilderness, here is our final styled inspiration shoot and we end it with a little glitz. Literally. This was our ‘Glitter’ theme, capturing the magical light [which was timed nicely when the sun appeared for us] to make a statement, but with a soft edge which worked so well in the backdrop of the twinkling Orangery at Aynhoe Park, featuring giant giant mirror balls.

We created the ‘Glitter’ look to be modern but subtle, almost as an opulent twinkle in the eye. Delicate detailing on the short dresses such as feathers and scalloped edges as well as the fabric necklace provided a little more ‘edge’ to the bridal look, along with the hair making a statement with its contemporary ‘up do’ structure, whilst the eyes were left to shine with smoky shimmering metallics, fluttering lashes and a hint of sparkle atop the lips for golden kisses.  

Soft white trailing blooms were gathered with stand-out sequin and gold ribbons, and whilst glitter filled the air, confetti was encapsulated by balloon bubbles for an unexpected surprise. 

The nail art that inspired the overall looks were created by Georgie – a bold all over gold metallic and also the ever so feminine natural nail with the tip dipped in glittering shimmer for that hint of sparkle. Both perfect nail looks for brides to shine in 2014. 

You can see our initial concept for the theme on our Glitter Pinterest Board.

Following on from our delectable Candy inspired shoot, here is the second style from the Her Lovely Heart shoot at Aynhoe Park, a wilderness romantic fairytale. 

We hope to entice a little wilderness romance out of you with this shoot – the team wanted to encapsulate the ultimate radiance of a bride with soft, feminine inspiration. Gentle, delicate, and organic, we were able to incorporate nature’s beautiful wilderness for a short while and though the air was crisp, the light was soft for this fairytale shoot.

The concept of Romance was organic femininity. It was brought together with powdery florals, pretty pastels and flowing fabrics. The loosely plaited updo hairstyle, the fresh from the garden florals and the rosy glow of the make up created a natural, organic and bohemian bridal style that was enriched by the surroundings inside and out. 

A delicate floral crown added a touch of ethereal and with the atmospheric backdrop at Aynhoe, the fairytale came to life. The nail art features ballet pink with polka dots, a playful feminine touch that compliments the shades of flowers. 

You can see our initial concept for the theme on our Romance Pinterest Board.

Candy look Inspiration shoot at Aynhoe Park

So, we may have done enough teasing over the last month with our behind the scenes look at what the Her Lovely Heart team got up to on our creative inspiration shoot at Aynhoe Park. Well now, we’re very excited to show you the real fruits of our labour with the first instalment of the shoot, which was ‘Candy’ inspired.

The concept for doing the shoot came about as Marianne Taylor has for a few years teamed up with the talented florist Steph from Fairynuff Flowers to do a mini inspiration shoot to get the creative juices flowing. This year, however it got a little bigger [well, actually much bigger] as it was a great opportunity for all the photographers at Her Lovely Heart to all come together to shoot, create, and play with a little added creative styling, stunning backdrops and some rather beautiful muses.

There were three loose themes for the HLH team to shoot [we don't do things by halves!] which were; CANDY, GLITTER and ROMANCE all of which were based around the concept of a creative nail art design which was then translated into each look across all the elements such as the flowers, the make up, hair and overall styling.

We were fortunate enough to work with an amazing team of talented suppliers and designers [see above] who helped translate the concept into reality with the day  being co-ordinated and styled by Charley Beard at London Bride.

We wanted the ‘Candy’ theme to be sugary but grown up, playful but elegant and of course with little sprinkles of colour….sweet but not sickly! The nail look created by Georgie for this was a fun take on the french manicure with a colourful pink base teamed with a contrasting mint green tip, a great modern look for a bride wanting something a little more playful and modern.

This concept was brought to life with the sleek silhouette of the dress which balanced against the bold feature of a bright pink lip, and alluring eyes. A cheeky pop of colour was also brought in with a pair of glamorous heels and the ombre effect of the flowers in the bouquet softened the look with varying hues of pink tied up with the prettiest ribbons. For a playful element, we added a giant colourful balloon which, just like candy, can’t help but bring on a child-like state of mind.
