The Larmer Tree is situated on the Rushmore Estate on the Dorset/Wiltshire border. Home to free roaming peacocks it really is a magic setting for your wedding day. I photographed a wedding there back in 2012 and felt it was time to return! It is still as beautiful and I wanted to share it with you in todays blog post.
A swoon-worthy Suzanne Neville ‘Belle’ dress was the one for Tara. The fishtail cut was just sensational and with the button detail all the way down the back to the top of her thighs and a high neck it really was beautiful.
This colourful balloon wedding at Aynhoe Park was as colourful and contagious as the gorgeous couple getting married. For Jenny and Dave, their wedding was a celebration. What better venue to host a big party than Aynhoe Park? The colourful balloons were brought to life in the Orangery. It was the perfect backdrop to show off the punchy colour choices in all their glory.
Hannah & Steven chose to host their wedding at the ever jaw dropping Aynhoe Park. Wearing a subtle, blush pink wedding dress, Hannah was a stunning bride. Who would love a pair of those glitzy Jimmy Choos too to walk down the aisle?
Primrose Hill Farm oozes opportunity and it was the perfect backdrop for a four seasons shoot. I always feel theres a lot of pressure on couples to create a theme for their wedding day – whats your colour scheme is on the tip of everyones tongues. A seasonal direction creates a wonderful opportunity in my eyes. In a world where everything is available most of the year round, the four seasons would actually do you a favour. Using seasonal flowers and food is key to ensure that you’re not only avoiding spending unnecessary money where it wasn’t needed (by trying to get out of season flowers at a premium price!) but it would enable your suppliers to select the best quality for you as they will have the luxury of availability on their side.
It’s always so inspiring to shoot at new venues, and Newington House was no exception! This beautiful 17th Century stately home was the setting for Georgie & Bens beautiful wedding last year. The wow factor starts at the gates!
Finding your dream venue is one of the biggies! With it, brings confirmation of your wedding date which means the ball is set rolling for all other supplier enquiries. Below is a helpful set of questions I found through Wedding Venues magazine which I wanted to share with you. It should help you glide through your first site visit!
Hollie & Dom chose an Aynhoe Park autumn wedding day. Having been featured on Rock My Wedding they claimed this wedding had some of the best aisle style they’ve seen! I have to agree! Hollie ensured that the Aynhoe Park Autumn wedding look was brought indoors to the orangery, using leaves to pave the way down the aisle, but also a stunning arch to frame them.
