Romance and Nostalgia at Upton Barn
Prepare yourself for some seriously pretty inspirations today and utterly beautiful bridal looks with this shoot captured by Lottie Ettling Photography featuring wedding dresses by Ailsa Munro. I have fallen head over heels for the divine Sovay Dress which is so feminine and elegant, with a contemporary deep V neckline and incredible sheer sleeves, described perfectly by Ailsa as, ‘billowing poet sleeves’.
Creams, rose pink and green foliage create the colour palette for this shoot and it has a a mix of rustic chic and fine art elements which are given a modern twist with Louis Ghost chairs! White urns create centrepieces overflowing with Ivy and stacked full of fruit whilst foliage trails along the silk runner along the length of the table too. It’s just perfect for the setting of the Upton Barn!
Ailsa tells us more about the inspiration behind the shoot; “We wanted to reflect my signature fine art style and show the dresses in the context of a wedding with the cake, stationery and styling. My, I drew inspiration from fine art wedding culture and second collection is a smaller and more focused investigation of current bridal trends, blended with my signature romance and nostalgia. At the end of my first year in the wedding industry designed the whole collection in a short flurry of creativity. The five dresses range in style, including traditional Georgian corsetry, a collaboration with bridal accessory designer Victoria Fergusson, hand crafted embroidered organza and billowing poet sleeves.”
