Art Deco meets Barefoot Bohemian – Styled Shoot at Saunton Sands Hotel

Our inspiration for this cool shoot is the contrast of stylish deco interiors with a boutique edge, and the sweeping and far stretching scenery of a clifftop setting at Saunton Sands.

The Saunton Sands venue offers the clever contrast of timeless chic and laidback barefoot elegance.

Set the mood with crystals and slick black-and-blush trim. Catch the light from the chandeliers with the walls of deco mirrors on your table settings, all created by Blue Fizz Events.

The shoot

Cherry Blossom Cakes created a stunning cake that captures the soft ambient light with a metallic glow. This is teamed with a nod to art deco with the black ribbon, all simply set on a mirrored table to make a real statement.

The flower lady created classic centrepieces, teaming white-on-white blooms with classic deco gloss black stems. These were crowned in dramatic white feathers, sitting perfectly with the hotel’s heritage and making an impact in the expansive dining rooms which feature unbroken views over the sea sand and dunes below. The bouquet was created again with white-on-white blooms in a striking formation.

Our sharply dressed man was dressed to impress in a grey/blue 3 piece from Samuel Daw and Co., teamed with a trilby and leather brogues – a classic look with a modern cut.

Our dresses and headpieces were kindly provided by Days of Grace. For the interior images we teamed the bejewelled and heavily beaded pillar dress with a combination of headdresses. Whilst this evoked a bygone era, it suited the sleek boutique edge to the upper lounge.

The divine hair looks were created by Steven at Steven and Lauren Hairdressers using the headpieces to perfection for added drama and incredible waves that combined our two trends. Claire Bowring was our make-up artist who completed the look to perfection with golds and subtle palettes to produce a stunning vision.

This cool elegance is one of the ways in which Saunton Sands delivers, yet we wanted to also give a narrative to its flexibility to be laidback and barefoot. So we took to the sands, the wild burrows and skylines full of weather and dramatic backdrops.

By night the party can really start with many brides now opting for a different look as day turns to night: the gold and slick backed modern chic look was created by Steven at Steven and Laurent and Claire Bowring collaborating and letting their creativity shine! For full impact our Bride becomes a party girl with a full feather headdress again created by Steven at Steven and Laurent. This venue is versatile and dramatic and our styled shoot certainly reflects that.
