When the industry mastermind Sundari from The Wedding Stylist approached me to work on a Home Creations shoot I was instantly captivated. This was a truly organic experience – just myself, The Wedding Stylist, Sundari and the wonderful Charlotte from Verity & Thyme. Hosted in Sundari’s beautiful home, the space alone was inspiring, these two ladies brought so much more to the experience too. It really was a dream day. So often I’m guilty of creating beautiful shoots with around 18-20 suppliers. Granted, not everyone is present on the day, but it is a huge team effort and a big job! How refreshing to strip it back and just have the three of us. Natrually it does help when the super talented florist is also a mega babe and part time model. Surrounded with inspiring chat, great coffee and local food, we really did feed our souls.
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.
Anna and Jamie are a young, super fun and outgoing couple and boy did their glamping wedding reflect this! Set in a secluded area of rural Northumberland, they hosted a luxurious marquee wedding with guests glamping on site!
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?
Peonies are loved by all, with the exquisite scent, the gorgeous big ruffles and the various colours, whats not to love? With such a statement flower, it’s possible to have a bouquet with only peonies which is exactly what Lucys choice was for her wedding at Aynhoe Park.
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.
Harry and Stefanie chose to host their luxury wedding at home. Using whites and subtle Pantone greens throughout, this stunning setting was the most perfect backdrop for their wedding day. In my opinion, a home wedding is wonderfully personal, and with a home like this, why would you look elsewhere?
