Fresh Summer Styling at Brinkburn Northumberland

What better way to start our series of supplier focused blog posts than with one of our favourite duos!

Back in February, ahead of our open weekend, we held a shoot featuring florals by the wonderful Helen at Bels Flowers which was captured by the amazing Katy Melling Photography.

The first area to be shot was our White Room, which was set up for a civil ceremony. The beauty of the White Room is that is breathtaking at its minimal best but can also serve as a blank canvas to be dressed with as much greenery, colours and decoration as you desire.

Helen showed that less is more when styling this shoot, using simple greenery and glass candle holders to bring a little something extra to the room with fern wall rings and a central hanging arrangement.

Next we moved on to the Tipis, renewed for 2018 and complete with a new hanging light feature. Helen once again used simple greenery to dress the twinkling tipi poles and add a pop of colour to the rustic light installation from Reed at Ingram AV

All of the above images were captured by Katy Melling whose expertise in the use of natural light and thoughtful composition captured the White Room and Tipis perfectly.
