Some of Grampian’s most sought-after suppliers, including Ivory Grace Bridal, Emma Lawson Photography and Kim Dalgish Florist collaborated to make new city-centre events space, The Anatomy Rooms, wedding ready
The former anatomy department of the University of Aberdeen has found new life as a creative hub and its blank-canvas events space was recently styled to perfection by some of north-east Scotland’s top wedding vendors.
When Ivory Grace Bridal’s line-up of dresses included alternative looks by Sassi Holford, Willowby by Watters and Rewritten, the shoot’s aesthetic would be anything but cookie cutter, as florist and prop stylist Kim Dalglish explains: “We were aiming for a modern, luxe look to suit the couple who don’t want the ordinary. The focus has been on foliage and greenery in weddings of late, so it was just nice to create something a little more heavy on the florals.
“The arrangements included fresh and dried blooms – lots of oversized nude and soft blush garden flowers such as roses and ranunculus – paired with unusual candy-pink, artificial-looking tropical anthuriums and orchids. We added some dried pampas, palm spears, grasses and foliage and – voila – we created some floral magic!”
We adore the geometric grid wall – it’s a statement backdrop that’s ideal for behind a top table; to use for seating plan or signage; or to just use simply as a photo prop.
