Abundant Opulence Outdoor Dinner By Amie Bone And Bruce Russell
Working with a dream team of the wedding and event industry's finest, Bruce and I collaborated on this Abundant Opulence shoot. Back in the summer when the evenings were warm and long we created the most glorious table scape outdoors proving that intimate soirées can be a thing. Imagine dining amongst the blooms, serenaded by Elan Artists’ string quartet...
Choosing a blush and burgundy colour palette, we kept the florals our trademark OTT design, cladding a silver birch tree in climbing flowers, an abundance of blooms on the expertly dressed banquet table containing the most wonderful styling details.
The linen from Nuage Designs complemented the tableware and gorgeous black cutlery perfectly from our friends at Whitehouse Crockery which sat beautifully with the raspberry infused stationery from Ruth Kaye Design.
Bex from Appletree designs worked her magic on the stunning cake which partnered the brief amazingly well displayed on a vintage tea trolley within the field.
As always its about thinking outside of the box - and raising the bar where possible - we crafted floral necklaces, crowns and arm garlands for the musicians to wear which looked incredible as they played against a curved backdrop of blooms in the long grass.
Once the dusk drew near the table came alive and took on an even more opulent feel - the lit chandeliers that hung from the branches above transformed the setting into something so wonderfully romantic.
As always any event is not possible without a team of passionate and innovative individuals that love what they do - thank you to the whole team involved for always going over and above, for always bringing the vision to life and for always doing it with a smile - I think we proved it doesn't have to be big to be beautiful - intimate is just as glorious x
