Colourful styling at the new Giraffe Shed wedding venue. I am Zoey, a wedding designer and stylist and this is my blog that will hopefully inspire and encourage you along your wedding planning journey. Today I am sharing with you an oldie but a goodie! I don’t get to do colourful too often and I must admit I am a neutral and moody lover myself. But a bright colourful wedding really does cheer me up!
The shoot was set in this gorgeous new wedding venue in South Wales, The Giraffe Shed. I headed up there in the summer with a brief of colourful, festival style, I had to add a little edge though! Which, I hope always add!
This venue was the making of Hannah and her husband, Hannah is a photographer and you can certainly tell, not just for the amazing lighting throughout the venue there are some pretty amazing photo backdrops too. I certainly fell in love with this venue, a modern blank canvas with some industrial elements, that pretty much ticks all my boxes.
I decided to add some industrial elements to the styling to work with the venue. Then the rest was all about the colour! I used all jewel tones. It is really important when working with a colourful palette to keep to the same shade, tones or tints. It gives a well-designed feel and adds luxury.
My favourite part was the chair ribbons. I spent longer than I care to admit messing with the ribbon and deciding a way to thread them. Just tied on looks nice but I feel the weaved look just lifts the design and looks super stylish! We kept the table minimal as there was so much going on with the chairs and colours. Just some key elements to add the industrial modern feel.
