Today’s shoot takes us to the hills and mountains of Scotland where wedding stylists Arrow and Twine, along with other Scottish based wedding creatives, put together a Celtic inspired runway shoot that is inspired by nature and embraces the famous Scottish elements….
Each supplier worked to create ideas for their areas of expertise that would use natural materials as much as possible, with a colour palette that took its inspiration from the landscapes of the estates and national parks in Scotland. Flowers were foraged, local tweeds and clan tartans were used, and even the hair pieces were styled in the shape of flowers.
Look out for the wonderful stationery by Paper Skeleton, the awesome bridal hair style by Gemma Taylor Hair (think Khaleesi when she’s at her most bad ass!) and the wild bouquet by Isla Duncan Florist which we LOVE.
The talented ladies behind Arrow + Twine talk us through their ideas for the shoot and how it all came together….
Beauty Can Be Romantic And Strong….
This collaboration between several creatives from the north-east of Scotland began with the concept of embracing the Scottish elements and using this to style a runaway wedding, and was initially developed by Arrow + Twine founder, Toria.
The styling centred around using reclaimed wood furniture, antlers and beautifully imperfect clay props, whilst the clothing blended together the rough tweed material with the softer, whimsical tulle dress.
The collaborators wanted to encourage the idea that beauty can be both romantic and strong, and to offer the idea of freedom to couples who are wondering if they might just runaway to have their own intimate ceremony.
