A Victorian Winter Wedding Photoshoot
Today I would like to share with you a photo-shoot I was fortunate to be involved in and where I met the brilliant Kirsty Mackenzie and have since collaborated with again on my first styled shoot I organized, but more on that day at a later date!
This shoot was captured in Autumn which meant I was able to incorporate lots of lovely autumn leaves and berries as well as the last of the summer blooms. Below is the mood board I created prior to making up the flowers to ensure that I had understood the brief! I always do this for styled shoots and sometimes weddings or events. It helps to organize my thoughts and ensure we are all on the same wave length!
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the shoot on the day as I was busy making up Christmas orders, so was super excited when saw the photos and how the day had been captured.
The shoot was styled by Sarah (great name!) where she cleverly incorporated lots of fruit, candles and moss. There was a quiet nod to the current trends (gold, terrariums and all things pineapple!) which cleverly linked the Victorian period and modern society. As in 1700’s Pineapples were status symbols, with the fruits crown like top and diamond shaped texture symbolizing wealth and power!
The dress was provided by Francis Bridal (such gorgeous dresses), with the outfit finished off perfectly with the stunningly perfect handmade lace boots by house of Elliot. (Links and whole supplier list at the bottom of this post.) I just love the lipstick colour – so chic!
I hope you enjoyed reading about this styled shoot and looking at the beautiful images captured of the day spent in the woods!
