I love the buzz of working as part of a team, and I’d been thinking about a photographic collaboration for some time. A conversation with a friend, who just so happened to own a wedding dress boutique, was exactly the stimulus I needed to set up this themed wedding shoot. We brought together a team of very talented local wedding suppliers, and were delighted when Shortflatt Tower agreed to come on board as our venue.

Shortflatt provided the perfect backdrop to our two chosen themes – 1950s and Midsummer’s Night Dream. Inside, the decadent decor and gorgeous windows gave me plenty of inspiration for the vintage style shots. Outside, I was spoiled for choice with the rustic old out buildings, a walled garden and flower-filled meadows, and the formal lawns added an elegant twist for the beautiful table setting.

Seeing all the weeks of planning come together on a fabulous sunny day was really special, and I’ll admit I got goosebumps as the models stepped out for the first time. As I write this and look back at the images from the day, I can hear the tune from The Sound of Music in my head – rose gold bow necklaces, Hollywood updo’s, Emerson dresses, peonies and thistles, green omber cake with delicate ruffles, dreamy pinks and natural nudes, Shakespearean-inspired stationery fluttering in the breeze – these were a few of my favourite things!

Everyone worked really hard to bring this project together, and the models did a fantastic job on the day. Thank you to you all! Here are some of the images from the day…x
