A Styled Vow Renewal Shoot - As Featured on Brides up North

Today we are looking back at our styled shoot from summer last year. Peony and Gold and a group of amazing suppliers with a love of pretty and a passion for florals came together with an idea that we needed to see more weddings for the couple with a family.

We focused the shoot around a vow renewal, because for us this was personal. The idea that a couple are still choosing to share their lives whatever the future brings, reaffirm their love for one another and vow, again, to grow old together.

This concept for this shoot was inspired by my own 15th wedding anniversary and my struggle to find inspo that suited our families story.

This was a styled shoot at the Beaumont Hotel in Hexham. The shoot was styled around an intimate vow renewal; we wanted to showcase the passing of time and that the couple were now older and had a family.

The Beaumont is such a stunning hotel which I feel is under-utilised as a wedding venue. The room was perfect for the light and airy feel we wanted.

As a florist, the florals were super important to me but I wanted something that hadn’t been seen before and so I spoke with Jane from Birdcages and Dragonflies and told her I wanted a chandelier arch. She made this up specifically for the shoot and it just brought all of the floral designs together amazingly! The pink sofa, also from Birdcages and Dragonflies, added an amazing familial touch and the children loved relaxing in their fairytale garden while we were shooting.
