“I was first contacted by Louise from Louise Rose Couture, the designer and the mastermind behind this photoshoot. She was thinking of a pretty pastel theme featuring some of her beautiful delicate 50s gowns for both bridesmaids and bride. In her own words:
‘’Our styled wedding shoot was inspired by the pure fun and feminism of the 50s style. Pretty pastels and Alice-esque styling ran through the theme of the shoot. Our bride is super elegant whilst also letting her fun-loving side shine through in her lace tea length wedding dress.’’
We then got together and created a moodboard, inviting fellow creatives to join us along the way, who also loved the theme of the shoot. We ended up with a fantastic team, full of enthusiasm and talent! Each supplier really brought something to the shoot to create the whole vision.
The lovely Cara from Ivory Rose Flowers created a gorgeous heart-shaped bouquet. She picked flowers like the frilly, peach lisianthus and memory lane roses with their gorgeous dusky tones to match the style of the shoot. Continuing the 50’s theme she created a headpiece of loose, romantic flowers tying the look together and adding to the romance of the day.
The beautiful three-tiered cake, by Rania from The Custom Cake Boutique, fit the theme, colour and spirit of the shoot perfectly. The cake combines stunning sugar roses alongside hand painted ones. Also adding some lovely detail to the shoot, was Sophie from Peony & Rose, contributing with some of her pretty wedding stationery designs.
The make up by Anitka consisted of pretty pastel eyes, complimenting the dresses beautifully and we loved Rachel’s retro hairstyling; her experience as a hair stylist and tutor of vintage hair styling was the perfect touch to complete the look.
As a photographer, I did my best to capture the fresh nature and relaxed fun of all the elements. The venue, the Swan at Streatley, was the perfect background for our shoot with the beautiful garden and the cute little bridge on the river. Our models energy and all the colourful details really brought back Spring.”
