Inspirational shoot ~ A Medieval Banquet

Recently I was lucky enough to be asked by Kerry at Daisychain Events if I would be involved in an inspirational photo shoot. A few suppliers get together to create ideas on a central theme for a wedding, set it up and photograph it. I jumped at the chance and we put our thinking caps on for a theme.

2012 was such a busy year for landmark events but we thought that the Jubilee and Olympic themes had been done. So I searched for any other anniversaries that may have been overshadowed by these events. I discovered that it was the 175th Anniversary of the opening of the Theatre Royal in Newcastle.

Kerry loved the theatrical idea and had the venue Blackfriars in mind for a location. As a medieval banqueting hall, I immediately thought of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and tables filled with food.

Here's what we came up with.

Lovely floral stationery from Jamie at Sweetpea Paper Design

The bunting from Emma Bunting was a mix of medieval flags and delicate lace - to co-ordinate with the lace chair bows from Daisychain Events.

Poppy from Papaver Designs decorated the alcove with this "Love is in the air" lettering and the paper lanterns on the tables were hers as well.

Pretty lavender flowers, reminiscent of the herbs which would have been strewn on the floors of medieval halls. The driftwood mirror was provided by Deidre Foster of Woodlark. The floral vintage china was provided by Daisychain Events and the goblets and mugs by Blackfrairs Restaurant.

All of the dresses and the suit were provided by Mia Sposa Bridal...

...and the stunning headpieces were created by Katy from What Katy Did Next.

Makeup and hair was done by Carly at Carly Michelle Hair and Makeup.

I hope you enjoyed the photos as much as we enjoyed creating them.

Thank you to everyone involved.

The models were Nichola, Prudence, Charlotte and Jon.

Thank you for looking and hopefully I'll be able to bring you another inspirational photo shoot later this year.
