This shoot was a complete dream come true! I’d been hoping to shoot bridal looks which truly captured a bohemian style that felt effortlessly authentic for absolutely ages. I contacted Penny from The Little Lending Company to style up this concept, as her work as a stylist and her photoshoots are always spot on and beautifully put together. The shoot took place at Pentney Abbey barn in North Norfolk. We fell in love with those gorgeous textured crumbly pale walls and knew it had to be our location!
Our beauty of a bride for the day rocked two gorgeous gowns by Willowby by Watters via La Creme and one stunner by Sassi Holford via The Bottom Drawer Bridal, accessorised with hand dyed textiles by Mia and beaten, handmade, layered jewellery by Norfolk based jeweller Alison Varley.
Our hairstylist Gemma created an edgy bridal look with teased, textured braids and a switch up of looks later on, bringing lots of volume to her hair by curling and back combing, for a full, textured look.
Melissa worked her makeup magic by going for a nude lip, satin finish skin, gentle highlights to enhance our bride’s beautiful bone structure and focusing on an epic golden brown smokey eye.
A palette of ginger, ochre and warm biscuit tones helped shape the styling and decor choices for the shoot. Hand made and painted pottery and crockery by Ruthanne Tudball brought an easy, relaxed table scape together by using a mix of hand dyed silk and linens as a runner and loosely twisting together.
Oops a Daisy florists elevated the shoot to another level, mixing fresh and foraged flowers such as limonium, cow parsley, olive, hellebores and buddleia and building up a palette of tones with a mix of dried flowers, giving it a more organic style. We created a cosy corner for our last bridal look, all the wicker and rattan creating an indoor alternative lounge space, with rattan rugs, peacock chairs and throws all beautifully lit and given some serious mood by candle light.
