The Darkshoot

We are very excited & proud today as we have the results of a recent GWC collaboration to share with you all. With the ‘summer’ wedding season drawing to a close a few of us GWC suppliers put our heads together to create something a little darker, hazier & moodier than we are used to, to suit the mood of the darkening season.

Di from Roots & fruits, a self confessed goth at heart, (check out her pinterest for the proof!) was the lady of the day in control of all things floral creating sumptuous bouquets, button holes , a glorious floral crown & a divine trailing wrist corsage.  (Not to mention our dreamy forest chandelier)  Our kind hosts for the day were Craufurdland Estate, a family run Castle with the most gorgeous authentic features. Recently revived to allow for intimate weddings we’re delighted to have them join the GWC. The Sorelle girls were on hair & make-up with Anne-Marie creating those glorious waves & crafty up-dos & Julie on the ruby plum lips & lashes. Dresses were collected from the divine range from Rowan Joy & a specially commissioned Lace number from Judy R Clark. The Vintage Co. kindly allowed us a good rummage to collect dresses, furs & accessories. Those amazing custom suits were provided by the fabulous Adam Waite Tailoring (now with a showroom in Glasgow & London). The wee naked chocolate cake was from Three Sisters bake. (We can verify its absolute tastiness). Those clever wedding helpers at Be Eventful kindly provided a box full of their goodies to dress the table which was styled beautifully on the day by Di of Roots n’ Fruits (supplier of those divine Bell jars) Mr James Tew of &James was there filming the day so watch this space for the moving images soon.

I hope our wee project provides lots of moody inspiration for planning lovebirds & gives you the courage to take your wedding day to the dark side.

Much Love,

Gillian & Chris

  1. oh my! another triumph! those dresses are to die for! My favourite shot has to be the black dress, red lips close up looking back at camera, the dress the makeup the hair the flowers and the photography just come together perfectly for that one moment, beautiful! 🙂
