Modern Minimalism Inspiration.
I am thrilled to share images from this Modern Minimalism bridal inspiration shoot, coneceptualised and styled by talented wedding and event planner Laura of Betty Williamson Weddings and Events and beautifully captured by Adam and Grace Photo and Dear Oliver Wedding Videographer.
Gloster House is a stunning property at the foot of the Slieve Bloom mountains in Ireland. Lovingly restored, it is surrounded by extensive gardens incorporating terraces, water features, woodland and lakes and is available for exclusive hire for weddings and events. The exterior stonework and neutral interiors were the inspiration for the colour palette for this modern minimalist shoot: ivories and greys, with accents of rust and black.
Modern Minimalist Styling
Stationary by Freckles and Fern Design embraced the modern minimalism brief with a neutral colour palette. The table setting used all white linen with white charger plates and simple black cutlery. Flowers in neutral tones by The Rosehip and Berry Floral Studio were arranged in modern minimal white bud vases by Zara Ceramics. Slim black candles and modern glassware completed the tableware. Ghost chairs rented from SBD Events, added a modern feel without detracting from the setting.
The piece de resistance was undoubtedly the hanging floral installation acting as a stunning backdrop…I think every wedding should have one!
Modern Minimalist Cake Inspiration
Of course this is the most important part (for all my cake followers anyway!). The cake was inspired by the neutral stone colour of Gloster House. Tall modern tiers were covered in stone-effect fondant and draped edible fabric, reflecting the fluidity of the bridal gown chosen for this shoot (see more on this below!).
We styled the cake on the table itself, giving it pride of place and allowing the floral installation to act as the perfect photographic backdrop. Placement of the cake on your table is a lovely option for intimate and even larger weddings.
Chocolate cookie place favours were inspired by the modern linear glassware and sophisticated setting.
Modern Minimal Bridal Inspiration
A flowing Luna Bea bridal gown from The White Gallery Boutique was exquisitely modelled by Alannah from Antipode the Agency. Hair by Oh So Boho Hair and makeup by Jen Ireland Make Up. Stunning handmade porcelain earrings from Lori Muldoon completed the look.
