Taking inspiration from the wilds of Somerset, this shoot captures the romance of an English countryside wedding. B.LOVED blog Founder and stylist, Louise, along with floral designer Jay Archer worked together to combine natural, wild elements with beautiful and luxury, handmade details. It’s so exciting to have been featured in Vow Magazine with this shoot too!
Set in the meadows surrounding country venue Pennard House, the colour palette of muted golds, grey and the palest blush along with loose and abundant floral design and simple details echo the beauty and colours of the natural surroundings; from the stone building to fields of golden grass and wildflower meadows.
Dresses by Anna Kara at Luella’s Bridal feature modern lace detailing lend a bohemian edge to the bridal styling, softened with delicate lingerie from Pompadour, accessories from Britten and fine jewellery from Monica Vinader. Hair and makeup artist Tori Harris used strong makeup looks with heavy brows, smokey eyes and strong cheeks with contemporary hairstyles to create a striking fashion-led bridal look.
Jay complimented the bridal look with bouquets and posies of British flowers, heavy with foliage and textures using grasses,seed heads and dried foliage to create a distinctive and unusual look. Over the table, a ‘hanging meadow’ combined all of the above with lashings of trailing foliage full of whimsy and romance.
The battered refectory table and benches from Virginia’s Vintage Hire, styled by Louise and the team at Prezola, is covered in a layer of fine silk linen by Kate Cullen, with chunky stoneware, glassware and hammered brassware with beautiful calligraphy stationery by Judy Broad to create a stylish look perfect for a laid-back outdoor celebration.
The Natural Cake Company created a series of home-inspired desserts from the lightest Angel Food Cake to meringues adding to the relaxed feel.
