Photography – Lotus Photography UK

“I was approached by the Bridport Electric Palace and asked to create a styled wedding shoot to celebrate the venue now being available for weddings. The brief was simple “You can do anything you want as long as it’s a celebration”. Being able to get married on a beautiful stage, under the spotlight, it felt only right that we went all out!”

“Lotus Photography UK is all about #ShowYourUniqueStyle, with a stunning venue and collaborating with amazing Dorset based wedding suppliers, we wanted it to be the most unique, theatrical, wedding photo shoot we could create.”

Stationery – Graceful Lace Stationery

“For the stationery I wanted this to stand out like the venues uniqueness. I went with the rich blues and gold that are found within the theatre against a soft cream.”

“For the invite I used a delicate gated laser cut with a slim sparkle finished with a navy silk ribbon. We used order of the days placed upon the theatre seats to give them dramatic placing on the shot. For the place cards we kept this simple with a calligraphy style & mirrored gold edging tied around beautiful burgundy napkins, finishing with the table plan in a bold & theatrical style frame really complimenting everything about the venue styling & shoot design.”

Cake – The Crumb Factory

“The cake was very much inspired by the venue. I wanted it to match the rich colours of navy, gold and burgundy, and of course its theatrical ambiance. Brushed with antique gold edible paint then finished off with burgundy handmade sugar roses and gold leaves. Standing tall on a gold cake stand placed inside a cast iron cake hoop, adorned with fresh flowers, surrounded by candle light and foliage the cake took centre stage under the spotlight.”

Venue Styling – Love By Design Weddings

“As the stylist on the shoot, I immediately imagined opulence, richness and warmth in the venue. For the top table on the stage, I used a textured cream chenille tablecloth draped through the centre with a soft burgundy fabric.”

“The place settings comprised vintage wine glasses and cutlery, gold charger plates topped with white china plates with gold edges and a burgundy linen napkin, all available from Swingletree Vintage”

“Candle holders and candlesticks in gold glass and metal were placed along the centre of the table to create a sumptuous look, and I wove flowers and foliage amongst them to add further detail and texture.”

Flowers – MeadowSweet

“It’s such a joy to be bold with colours for wedding flowers and the unique venue provided the perfect backdrop for our oversized British bouquets packed full of textures, fragrance and rich tones. At MeadowSweet we use British, seasonal flowers and foliage throughout the year and for the shoot we had a wide range of late winter and early spring blooms to choose from. We loved using our homegrown burgundy hellebores throughout with their timeless and opulent feel. We also used blue anemones, snowdrops, bluebells, golden ranunculus, red tulips, forsythia, blue-green foliage from eucalyptus and shiny dark green foliage from camellia and ivy.”

Wedding Shoes – Le Soulier Shoes

“When Emily from Lotus photography approached and invited me to join her stylised theatrical inspired shoot, my creative mind already brimmed full with design ideas!! Emily encouraged us as suppliers to let our hearts and thoughts flow free when it came to creating our unique pieces. I choose 2 pairs of shoes to paint; branching away from tradition, I selected champagne and mustard yellow bases combined with opulent, rich metallic shades, Swarovski crystals and hand made butterflies for delicacy!”

Wedding Dresses -Bridal Reloved

“The dresses we chose for this shoot were actually decided on in the end by the models who wore them. The reason for this is we wanted the reaction and feeling of the brides to be as organic and authentic as possible so we didn’t want them to seem then until the day. We picked out a few dresses for each model that suited the brief. As you can see from the first look photos the brides were in their element choosing the ones they wanted to wear. These gowns included a fantastic 2 piece jacket and skirt by Martina liana, a fun, full on princess dress by Morilee, and a fantastic 3d textured silk Ian Stuart gown that fit the flamboyancy of the venue.”

Brides Hair & Makeup – FLC Hair & Makeup

“Being a part of this incredible shoot was so exciting, the drama that the venue created was breathtaking! As I was working with two female models I really wanted to create a different look on each to reflect different personalities and styles.”

“For Laura I created a deep and dramatic blue smokey eye, super on trend and a little daring for a bridal look, however with her fair complexion and deep brunette hair in an ultra modern bridal pony tail this really stood out!”

“With Ayesha I instantly knew I wanted her hair to be wild and untamed, showcasing the raw passion in the venue. I paired this with impossibly smooth highlighted skin, a soft smokey eye and dramatic berry lip which really packed a punch along with her incredibly cool suit jacket top!”

Acrobat performer

Glitter Hair & Makeup – Festidolls

“Being the hair and make up artists for Jax and the acrobats, we really wanted to bring the stage to life with lots of colour and glitter. We took inspiration from the Electric Palace itself and used a selection of colours that would compliment our surroundings.”

“On our acrobat Emily we created our own unique version of a Mohawk hairstyle which was finished offer with blue and pink glitter. We then went on to create a multicolored collar from a selection of gems and added some extra pieces to her arms, face and lips.”

“For our second acrobat, Vicky, we decided to go for braids with a massive golden glitter quiff. Her look was finished off with golden body paint, glitter, metallic tattoos, and gems.”

“Beautiful singer Jax was looking super glamorous with a simple bob. We added a selection of purple glitters to one side of her hair and then created a gorgeous piece using glitters and gems on one side of her eye.”

Wedding Singer

Singer Jax Hall Vocalist

“The idea behind the entertainment on stage was to create a big bold theatrical experience by filling the stage with drama and sparkle yet to still be able to create a beautiful intimate moment for the first dance. Jax Hall our vocalist really understood the brief and performed a live track of ‘a million dreams’ from the Greatest Showman which was the perfect choice to compliment the venue and create the romance of a starlit first dance.”
