Colour Pop at Wick Farm, Bath
2020 has been a tough time for not only suppliers in the wedding industry but also for couples. Some suppliers have had to take a huge step back and watch their businesses crumble, while others have stood high and stayed strong, taking cuts in order to keep their businesses going during such uncertain times. Couples have had to re arrange the date of their wedding from what may have been a really significant and personal date, for example their anniversary from when the first met or the day they first told each other they loved one another. Couples have had to watch money be poured down the drain when they can’t claim back deposits or can’t book their chosen photographer or stylists. Weddings this year have been a total disaster and COVID-19 SUCKS!
For that reason, I was inspired to do this shoot, I wanted to inspire couples by bringing back life and colour into the wedding industry, leaving couples and suppliers with a bit of hope and happiness for the future of weddings.
I have two friends (the models) Jake and Emma who were due to get married in California this year, however they weren't able to due to COVID-19. This gave me the perfect opportunity to create a ‘Colour Pop’ inspired styled shoot. I wanted to capture some beautiful images for Jake and Emma to celebrate what would have been their wedding year and to capture some bright and cheerful content for some amazing suppliers during this tough time.
There were so many wedding suppliers involved in this shoot mainly local to Somerset, Bristol and Bath, from collectable vintage glass to an audio guest book. We shot at a fantastic Somerset wedding venue, Wick Farm Bath indoors and outdoors, the bride wore sustainable make up, intricate handmade jewellery, a gorgeous laced dress, and a personalised faux leather jacket. We had a gorgeous three-tiered cake covered in colourful macaroons and fruit, a table full of delicious and vibrant food. We dressed the venue with coloured handmade macrame, rustic tables, Moroccan rugs and pouffes, eye catching and beautifully smelling flowers, handmade stationary, balloons and vases made from vintage glass collected over years by our stylist, and a unique way of leaving a message for the bride and groom via an audio guest book, all captured by me from Freya Steele Photography and Powerhouse Videos.
