Themes are a huge inspiration for a couple’s day when planning a wedding. We love a shoot at THTH HQ, its our opportunity to show our artistic flair. This decadent, African shoot shows how you can bring subtle elements into your styling to encapsulate your ideas. We were so excited when we were asked by the team at Selden Barns to do something different at the venue. This shoot includes some very quirky ideas including a watering hole and even a safari themed honeymoon tent.
The ceremony room was dressed with simple arch decorated with palm leaves and garlanding to the beams provided by Wild and Green Floristry. Gold storm lanterns added to the magical feel and the chairs were decorated with simple chiffon material and a single palm leaf.
The styling continued in the reception barn. Which included stunning tableware supplied by Crystal Hire including gold cutlery and gold rimmed glasses and accent colour napkins amongst other items.
The ceiling was decorated with fairy lights and lanterns and a ceiling focal floral decoration was created above the head table. The stunning flowers included African pro tea and palm leaves, this worked perfectly with the gold elements and burgundy touches.
The details continued right down to the table names which were gold african animals.
A stunning cake was created by and was displayed on a rustic barrel.
The stationery and even a african themed fingerprint guestbook were included.
Finally a quirky watering hole for arrival drinks including a foilage backdrop completed the look.
A huge thank you to all the suppliers that were involved in this shoot.
