Romantic colours, quirky details, candlelight and stunning florals come together in this insanely beautiful garden styled shoot.

What do you get when you combine the brilliance of wedding and events planner Bruce Russell with the creative talent of one of the best florists in the industry, Amie Bone? Well, a jaw-dropping opulent shoot, all set to inspire a smaller celebration of six. Think abundant florals in the prettiest pinks and blush tones with bright pops of crimson and burgundy, in an array of textures. Here's a look at the finer details, all shot by photographer San Shawe.

Bruce Russell, Wedding Planner:

'For the Opulent Shoot, I wanted people to see that small intimate celebrations don’t have to be boring and can be created in your own backyard. I encourage people to celebrate anything, anytime, anywhere, and do it in style! Taking the dinner party outside doesn’t have to mean a BBQ or a picnic - it can still be sophisticated and chic'

'To create drama and WOW without the numbers, it's all about the detail'

The team pulled together clever touches such as a grass topped table covered with an abundance of fresh and romantic florals all set against a rustic backdrop. Each element creates such a glorious ambience for a tablescape and shows just how you can create a show-stopping setting, however small your wedding party. Apple Tree Cake Design crafted a cake so clean and simple, whilst impeccably mirroring the floral styling. The decadence of the gold candelabras, matching crockery, linen and elegant glassware all combine to create one perfect insta-worthy lavish table setting!
