Blue & Silver Wedding Theme - Styled Shoot at Ravens Ait Island

Oh my gosh, I can't believe that I have only just found the time to show you this incredible blue & silver wedding theme I created at a styled shoot last year!  I've been so busy with weddings, engagement sessions and portrait shoots lately - as well as the big move to our beautiful new studio in Lawley, Shropshire that I hadn't found five minutes to tell you about it!  Lets fix that right now!

I visited Ravens Ait Island last summer and straight away, I fell in love with the uniqueness of this wedding venue.  I had no idea that there was a private island nestled in the River Thames in Kingston, Surrey.  Oh but there is.  And it's a stunning setting for your wedding day.  I fell in love with Ravens Ait as soon as I saw it and I just knew I had to put together a styled shoot there to photograph.

The inspiration for the blue and silver wedding themed shoot came from the venue itself.  Soft silver sparkled off the rippling blue river as the sun streamed down on the island.  Many people think that a blue & silver wedding theme is only for winter weddings.  How wrong can they be?

I immediately contacted some of my friends in the wedding industry and together we created an elegant silver and blue themed wedding shoot.  I loved how the pairing of blue and silver together looked soft, romantic and magical, with just the touch of sparkle and glamour that is perfect for a wedding day.

Raven's Ait has a beautiful lawn overlooking Hampton Palace and the River Thames and is perfect for lawn games, cocktails and canapes.  We even arranged our drinks table and dessert table there.  The huge marquee has it's own bar and is large enough to hold hundreds of wedding guests.

Inside, the venue is elegantly decorated with soft patterns, luxurious seating, silver gilted mirrors and shiny mirrored tables to reflect the beauty of the decor.

Photographs of your wedding guests can be take either on the majestic stone steps leading up from the pier (after you've taken your own private boat to the island!) or on the beautiful lawn overlooking the river.  It really is every photographer and Brides dream.

Laura Ritchie Designs created us bespoke wedding stationery, including matching table numbers, seating plan, menus, wedding invitations, RSVPs and Save the Dates.  The invitations were given a sophisticated look with a belly band detailing the couples names and wedding date.

Our Bride had a custom made wedding dress created by the incredible Audrey Ashley.  Soft lace, chiffon, embroidered flowers and a sparkling silver belt to tie in with them blue and silver wedding theme.  The Flower Girl was my daughter Isla, who loved twirling around in her pretty chiffon flower girls dress, also custom made by Audrey Ashley, detailing delicate capped sleeves and finished with a blue sash.  Our beautiful Bridesmaid was dressed in a gorgeous soft blue dress from Dessy which was loaned to us by the fab team at Maid in Heaven.

No bridal party is complete without the perfect hair and makeup.  And this shoot was no different.  Emily Mickleburgh is one of the most amazing HMUA's I've had the pleasure to work with.  She is friendly, fun, works to a deadline and her skills are outstanding.

Love flower crowns?  This blue and silver themed styled shoot had the most amazing flower crowns designed by Rosadior.  The bride wore a beautiful hair vine of hydrangeas and glittering diamante's, whilst the bridesmaid wore a hair comb and a crown for the flower girl.

The stunning jewellery was all custom designed by the very talented Annaliese Rivers.  A beautiful long drop pendant and earrings for the bride and a pearl bracelet to set off that gorgeous ring!  Our bridesmaid wore an elegant pendant necklace and drop earrings and the flower girl also wore a pearl bracelet.

Lets not forget the gorgeous Groom in the wedding too!  Keeping with the blue and silver theme, our Groom was dressed in a sophisticated navy three piece suit by Keyes London.

I love flowers at a wedding - the more plentiful the better in my eyes!  These beautiful blooms were created by the incredible team at Abbey Flowers.  I say 'team' but it was all down to Ellen and Izy on the day!  They worked tirelessly in blistering heat to create all the wedding bouquets, centrepieces, aisle decor as well as the gorgeous flowers set on the stone steps.

The marque decor was set up perfectly - with the help of the amazing Alegrar Events, and all the creative team at the shoot.  Designer Chair Covers to Go, Academy Hire & Just4Linen provided the perfect table linens, serviettes, charger plates, glassware, silver table cloths and table runners as well as the beautiful chivari chairs.

Last but by no means least was the amazing food and drinks.  Ravens Ait created for us mouthwatering blue prosecco cocktails, the amazing four tiered cake and cupcakes were by the talented Safiyas Cakes.
