Today, I’m thrilled to show you some behind-the-scenes moments from a styled shoot at the enchanting Armada House, a new wedding venue in Bristol that’s set to steal hearts. With three stunning ceremony rooms, Armada House is a beautiful blank canvas waiting to unfold. The perfect place to fill with your dream wedding flowers, imagen vibrant blooms adorning every corner, and the largest room accommodating up to 90 guests – a wedding florist’s dream come true! Therefore, when the masterminds behind The Observatory and The Wellhead invited me to be a part of a styled shoot to showcase their new venue I was delighted. I knew this new venue with be just as unique and inviting as the others kept scrolling to see what we created.
We began in the ceremony rooms having seen the light-filled spaces I decided to create floral meadows with light and bright nature-inspired hues, my a-symmetric designs creating the perfect frame for a couple to stand between. Smaller aisle meadows lined the walkway creating a floral blanket leading the way to forever. With candle-lit lanterns on either side of my floral creations, the flickering light danced across the petals creating shadows on the herringbone flooring. The effect created the most enchanting moment, pausing time in an elegant time capsule where the world outside seems to stop and fade away.
Continuing the whimsical and enchanting floral moments throughout this classically decorated venue. We created a wonderful tablescape by reusing the meadow arrangements we lined the front of the long banquet top table. My favourite way to reuse florals and create impact for your wedding breakfast. The venue boasts a brilliant unique feature in that the top table rested upon a dark charcoal platform raising the bridal party up. It’s such a bonus that you get the best view of all your loved ones. Pair the meadows with simple glass bud vases and gorgeous white flowers, lots of glassware, and gold detailing. The whole look completed was a modern take on a classic all-white wedding. Bringing the crisp new energy of the venue’s surroundings and elevating them into an elegant wedding oasis.
The commitment of the team behind Armada House to create a haven for celebrations is evident in every room of this venue, the classic and beautifully created rooms are the perfect curated backdrop for you to transform into a space that depicts your love story.
