Planner and shoot stylist Catrina Duthie worked with a team of uber-talented Scottish wedding suppliers on this styled shoot in Glasgow’s coolest new wedding venue, The Engine Works.
She tells us a little bit more about the styling behind the shoot…
“After seeing a post from The Engine Works on Instagram myself, Sarah from Fotomaki Photography and Mel from Briar Rose Design arranged to go along and see the venue for ourselves.
After meeting Michael, the owner and his team we agreed a styled shoot would be a fantastic opportunity to showcase the space and collaborate together.
The three of us set to work and came up with the creative concept for the shoot: stripped back, with a simple green and white palette, complemented with gold throughout.
The stunning floral creations by Briar Rose Design were very much the foundation for the styling of the shoot. The red brickwork in the building is so striking, it was also important to us this was highlighted.
Once we had our design concept I went about pulling together the ‘dream team’ for the shoot!
Amazingly talented local bridal couture designer Flossy and Dossy were our first port of call.
The dress is from their New Wave collection aimed at the modern bride, and perfectly in-keeping with the aesthetic of our venue.
The kilt outfit was from A1 Kilt Hire and the company offered a great service.
HAIR + MAKE-UP
The hair and make-up for our gorgeous bride model was kept natural and unfussy by talented Maddison Scott Styling and Carla Haley Makeup Artist.
They gave our bride a stylish, pared back look which worked perfectly with the style of the dress.
COMPLETING THE LOOK
It was important that the furniture and decor felt natural in the surroundings of The Engine Works, and the Wooden Bench Hire Company delivered exactly what we wanted!
We added crockery from Bespoke Catering, linen and lighting from Make Believe Events and gorgeous gold-trimmed glasses from The Green Cockatoo. This looked really cool and modern.
Laura Elizabeth Patrick provided some to-die-for stationery, and Cecilia Stamp Jewellery tied all of the elements together beautifully with some geometric pieces.
What can we say about the cake?! It was created by Rosewood Cakes, who completely nailed the style we wanted.”
ABOUT THE ENGINE WORKS
‘We are delighted to be bringing this incredible space to the Wedding market. Instead of seeing the space as a derelict and abandoned warehouse, we instantly saw its potential.
From the moment we entered the space we could visualise the most incredible weddings, and this vision drove the inspiration from that day on.
The Engine Works has such an incredible history and deep roots within the community, with generations having worked there, we were driven to stay true to its heritage, and have remained sympathetic to its original design. Throughout the space you’ll find details of design which take guests on a journey into the past which add to the romanticism of the space.
We have put the guest first at The Engine Works, thinking of every aspect of the perfect wedding, and how we can accentuate the venue to make every celebration even more magical and as such we created the strap line ‘the only limit to its use, is your imagination’ and we can’t wait to fill the space with laughter, love and happiness for generations to come.’
