“The concept of the shoot was originally based around the growing trend of watercolours. It needed to be elegant and simple, but with an interesting contrast between the rustic nature of the barns and the sophisticated glamour that came from the dress, the styling and the flowers.

Watercolours came into it within the flowers, with the faded out hues within the petal. The stationary had the delicate quality of handpainted watercolours running as a theme and all brought together with the springtime pastel colourways.  

I wanted to create a styled shoot that would inspire brides on how they can create a different type of barn wedding. Usually the country / barn style wedding continues the informal theme with organic garden style florals and rustic wooden styling details, but I wanted to show that you can juxtapose a sophisticated, elegant and structured concept against the rural backdrop of a barn wedding.

There will be more in depth details about the whole shoot in on of my Loved By Lucie blogs.”
