We have a galactical wedding shoot for you today, sent into us by the queen of colour, Claire from CRZyBest! It showcases her awesome accessories and a wide range of kick-ass suppliers, with photos by Indigo & Violet and FoyeTography. Claire put a lot of emphasis on being eco-friendly when organising this shoot- which makes my little eco-warrior heart very happy! So, scroll on for eco inspiration as well as industrial galaxy wedding gorgeousness!
How they kept this shoot ethical & eco friendly...
- Claire and the suppliers tried to minimize plastic use as much as possible in this shoot. Yay!
- A CRZyBest bouquet is designed to last, made with recycled metals and Swarovski crystals (the company supports sustainable development and runs on hydro-electric power)
- Hair Stylist Scott (from The Lily Grey Salon) used biodegradable glitter in the models’ hair.
- Natalie Boland MUA used only vegan and cruelty free make up– which we love!
- Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel has a wide array of eco credentials including solar panels, a tree planting programme and a biomass boiler.
- They used prop hire business This Will Be Forever instead of buying new, single use items. They use LED lights in their light up sign, which are more eco than traditional neon light!
- Millie Stone Calligraphy prints her fabulous stationery locally to keep her carbon footprint down.
- The fabulous V-Bakes and Urban Cakehouse created yummy vegan treats, with the environment in mind!
"Space Girl-Chic" - The galaxy wedding look!
Meg and Suki are rocking the galaxy wedding look, kitted out in beautiful Fiona Elizabeth Couture pieces. We’re all for sustainable fashion here, and love that these two-pieces can be worn again in different combinations. The black lace boots from House Of Elliott look awesome on Meg with the pink tights that peek out from under the skirt- very 80s! Suki wears upcycled heels from The Amber Room, embellished by CRZyBest to compliment her wedding bouquet. Upcycling is a great way to add personality to your wedding, and to breathe new life into something pre-loved!
CRZyBest’s twinkling alternative bouquets are perfect for this shoot- featuring thousands of Swarovski crystals and tiny metal sculptures which are also dotted around the shoot. The jewellery and hair accessories were made to compliment the bouquets, and all the matching crystals sparkle so beautifully!
The sparkles continue into the models’ hair, styled by Scott from Lily Grey Salon and scooped up into awesome space buns. The hair accessories look very ‘space girl-chic’, perfect for a galaxy wedding! The makeup by Natalie Boland MUA is playful and bold, matching the pinks and indigos of the shoot. You can never go wrong with a bit of face glitter!
Eclectic styling in an industrial venue
This shoot took place at Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel, which provided the industrial backdrop for this galaxy wedding shoot. This works perfectly against the blue and white fairy lights, and the pink LED sign from This Will Be Forever Prop Hire. It feels old school and funky!
The painted glasses are fun touches, adding splashes of colour to the décor.
The table was brilliantly styled by The Wedding Alchemist. I LOVE this tie dye tablecloth with the matching napkins- they look like galaxies, especially with the little star decorations. The painted glasses are fun touches, adding splashes of colour to the décor. A slight grandeur is added with tall candle holders, contrasting the earthy succulents and moss-like plant decoration. These elements come together in an awesome, eclectic look.
galaxy wedding essentials
Millie Stone is a wonderful calligrapher and she created this galaxy wedding stationery to match the style of this shoot. It’s important to continue your theme through your invitations, so guests get a sneak peek of what to expect! Millie is keeping the art of calligraphy alive in this age of computer-generated imagery.
The icing on the cake of this shoot is… well… cake! The tiered vegan cake was made by Lisa at Urban Cakehouse, with awesome galaxy style decoration and silver embellishments. Molly from V-Bakes created some delicious mini doughnuts and cupcakes, matching the spacey theme- also vegan! They all taste as good as they look!
This galaxy wedding shoot is brilliant top to bottom, and full of awesome inspiration! Indigo & Violet Photography and FoyeTography smashed it on the photography front, and Claire of CRZyBest did an awesome job at keeping things as fabulous as ever, whilst still being environmentally aware!
