Martin Venherm Photography styled photoshoot

A super-cool 60s inspired styled photoshoot at Rosebery House, Midlothian

What happens when you take a beautiful historic property, add some super-chic styling and a fabulous Cadillac?

That’s just what photographer Martin Venherm and a team of amazing wedding suppliers did when they pulled together all the elements of this cool styled photoshoot at Rosebery House.

From the very beginning Martin wanted to achieve a real 1960s vibe.

“The initial conversation started, as so often, with my friend Edwina from Rosewood Cakes over lunch here in the West End of Glasgow,” he says.

“Edwina and I had worked on a few shoots together before, and we felt that it was time to get our creative juices flowing again.

“We very quickly decided that we wanted to work with a venue which would allow us to showcase a high-end luxury wedding so I reached out to the lovely team at Rosebery Venues – I had previously shot a wedding at their spectacular Barnbougle Castle.”

From there they assembled a team of their favourite suppliers and started to discuss colours and ideas for the Rosbery House shoot.

“Whilst we all wanted to aim for a luxurious feel to the shoot, it was also really important to me that the images would have a really stylish touch,” continues Martin.

“So I had the idea of reaching out to John from Edinburgh Classic Wedding Cars to ask him whether we could bring his 1960s Cadillac into the shoot.

“The car and the champagne fountain I feel added a real touch of glamour and style, and they added a real 1960s, young Elvis and Priscilla vibe.”

Bride vibes

Model Erin McNulty was styled to perfection by talented MUA Leigh Blaney while Pin Up Hair Glasgow nailed the 60s look with plenty of height and volume.

Erin’s high split halterneck dress was from Alice Jayne Bridal and the look was completed with a gorgeous appliquéd veil from Baba-C Designs and oh-so-cool chunky pearl hairpiece by Scarlett and Wolfe.

Danny McMurray looked dapper in the role of groom in his class tux with not-so-classic exaggerated buttonhole by Narcissus Wedding Flowers by Susan.

Susan created all the beautiful floral displays for the shoot, contrasting statement orchids and ranunculus in the bouquet with softer foliage and white blossoms in the altar and window displays in the chapel.

A luxe suite of stationery which featured gold and taupe/blush tones was provided by Eden Rose Wedding Stationary.

From the moment you receive the invitation, to seeing the welcome sign and sitting down to your individual menu, every detail is thought of and keeps the wedding styling on message – and that’s exactly the case with this gorgeous set.

As one of the co-creators of this shoot, of course Edwina at Rosewood Cakes was involved, designing not one, but two, of her signature high-tiered wedding confections, complete with expert sugarcraft flowers spilling down the layers.

Check out that subtle sheen to the icing!

And the cadillac from Edinburgh Classic Wedding Cars definitely added a cool 60s touch.

As well as Elvis and Priscilla we’re also getting Mick and Bianca Jagger vibes!

Every inch of this gorgeous shoots is on message, delivering a classically luxurious but super-chic look, right down to the champagne pour.
