In this shoot by Paul Bamford of Finch & Oak, first featured in issue seven, an empty space beckons for attention. For anything to brighten its matte stained soul. A brief rummage through a nearby forest, a neighbour’s council clean up, along with some carefully sourced props and almost everything needed to set the scene of a playful, industrial style wedding has been gathered. Just like that.
Recycled wood and second hand furniture from Signs of Wear invite a sense of warmth against brightly coloured bouquets by Stem Design and a territorial, icy blue backdrop. Meanwhile soft linen napkins and a bride wearing an elegant Grace Loves Lace gown hover near sweet succulent wedding favours and a grand three tiered wedding cake by Oh My Sweets.
At once we’re reminded of the peace and joy these small things bring. Observing each tiny, yet enormously beautiful detail, our attention is peaked by whimsical paper pieces and blackboard signs from Fox & Fallow, inviting guests to take a seat and enjoy the magic of the day.
