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.
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.
You’re no doubt keen to know what food you’ll be eating on your wedding day and where its coming from, but do you know where your florals are coming from? Here are some key floral tips on being eco friendly that will also be kind to your budget! Stay in Season The easiest way to keep your wedding green is also one of the most easily forgotten about – ensure you choose locally grown, seasonal flowers. Not only will they be more naturally ragrant and beautiful than blooms flown in from abroad, but they’ll also cost less and will reduce your carbon footprint.
