love shoot #51: a whimsical woodland {styled shoot}

Good morning lovelies!  So, I think we started off this week on the right note with this cute & girly hot pink inspiration board yesterday, but today I think it gets even better!

I am always super excited to share amazing images from Juliet McKee, especially when she teams up with a group of talented wedding pro’s to create stunning shoots like the one I’m sharing today!

Up and coming bridal designer Charlotte Garratt wanted to create a styled shoot around one of the new dresses in her bespoke collection.  Pretty, whimsical and completely princess-worthy, of course the only suitable location was a castle!

To pick up on the delicate lilac and blue details on the dress, wonderful florist Nikki of Senses Floral created a stunning hydrangea bouquet, and the whole look was topped off with a dainty wirework headpiece, gorgeous!  I love this colour palette! It’s unusual, but oh so beautiful, it would be just perfect for a spring wedding.

The beautiful dress has the most wonderful movement and shape.  I love these shots running through the castle grounds, it reminds me of a wonderful old fairytale, complete with fairies and whimiscal woodlands!

Charlotte studied at the London College of Fashion, specialising in Couture tailoring, corsetry and bridal wear, with her designs instantly recognisable by the lovingly crafted laced corset which sculpts the body to create a beautiful silhouette.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.

Simply classic wedding inspiration
