Our stunning and classic photo-shoot was Organised by:
And so to Wed a blog based in Leeds, our shoot was a celebration of small Northern wedding businesses, many of us hand make our items.
Using a colour palette of lace, winter white and barely-there-gold, alongside soft natural foliage, textures and fabrics, the shoot evokes feelings of timeless warm winter celebrations in luxurious surroundings. It captures the feel of a winter wedding morning and the reflective time of the bride at this truly fabulous venue, making it both personal and pretty.
Tanfield House was the perfect backdrop for this seasonal shoot. We are personally obsessed with the venue that offers Brides exclusive use of the grounds and much of the house.
All the beautiful hairpieces featured in the shoot are available to buy from our Etsy store: www.etsy.com/shop/bespokevintagecastle
Stylist Pamella Dunn was integral to the shoot and dressed the venue using a variety of white flowers and foliage, lights, candles and textured materials. She always manages to bring elegance, style and a sense of whimsy to her styling, and this was just what we wanted to achieve.
We also wanted to reflect the nature that surrounds the venue, which we did through the wedding dress, cake and elements of the styling.
Our beautiful and popular Snow blast Bridal Bouquet was an absolute show stopper. It resides in Ritva Westenieus London and can only be purchased exclusive to her London based Bridal Boutique.
Delicate details emphasise the theme and convey the beauty of the season
All the little extras added texture and sumptuous romance.
As the sun set it created a wonderful deep change in the mood and tone of the shoot the colours were rich and festive
Our stunning feather fan created by Jazzy Alexandra made a stunning feature in the shoot also
We can’t rave on enough about how full of talent and creativity the entrepreneurial women behind the different businesses are and we feel so privileged to work alongside them.
To all wedding couples planning their big day, we would like to say try to go local and go small with your suppliers. Not only can this work out much cheaper, but often it’s the best way of getting exactly what you want – something truly bespoke.
We have created a slideshow video of our shoot it is over on YouTube have a look and pop a like!
