50s Inspired Colour Pop Wedding Shoot at Deer Park Hotel


Bridget from Blue Fizz Events is the stylist behind this gorgeous shoot… here you can see how her thoughts and inspiration has created such a fun and colourful 50s wedding shoot – of course with the help of a handful of fabulous wedding suppliers from across the South West.



This shoot for me was an opportunity to bring a colour pop theme into play, set against the stunning backdrop of The Deer Park Hotel for some fabulously colourful 50s Wedding Inspiration.


I opted for a preppy 50s wedding vibe in the choice of dress to suit this young fresh concept selected from the Caroline Fricker collection. The short length delicate pink lace and a classic 1950s prom style was exactly what I was looking for.


The hair and make up again echoed some 50s elements keeping it clean and simple with pinks and a modern version of the pleated up do all undertaken by Jai at the Event Studios &  Eve Ashby on our divine model Hannah Slater.


Our male model Jim Cadagon was our cooler than cool groom on the day wears separates sourced from my own contacts alongside a striped blazer, trousers, braces and straw boater from Samuel Daw and Co. 

The palette for me was pinks as a base alongside a riot of bright and colourful stripes. When mixing a lot of stripes together it simply works, I loved this look for its balmy summer feel and a quintessentially English Regatta influence.


Our cakes were created by Claire makes cakes that teamed the vivid colours against crisp white icing and also made the cookie name tags to charm your guests.

I created a fun backdrop for the ceremony by making paper pom poms and a striped banner and to bring all the elements together Poppys of Exeter supplied the stunning flowers and bouquet to work perfectly within the whole look.

We dressed our table using many hand made elements that I created in the sunny conservatory room at The Deer Park Hotel, a very versatile venue no matter what theme or style you opt for.

The lazy summer day rolled out with the hammock that hangs in the grounds being one of the main influences in the striped theme and pink lemonade and a swinging bench allowed us to achieve the feel of a fun, and very relaxed summer wedding in the heart of the Devon countryside……all captured through the expert lens of Venetia Norrington all in all a very up-beat modern yet timeless theme that certainly made for a lot of cheerful images!
