Photographing this shoot has been one of the highlights of my year. Not only did I get to work with the incredible Emma Beaumont team including Emma and her mother Sarah who art directed and planned the shoot, I was able to shoot it alongside some of my favourite wedding suppliers who just lift my spirits. We shot at Dorfold Hall, the venue that captured my heart over two years ago and where I've been working as a wedding coordinator ever since. And yes, I do also coordinate weddings!
We had a beautiful summer's day that just made shooting everyone's work so easy. The light was incredible and highlighted the detailing in the dresses and vintage designer jewellery from Jennifer Gibson Jewellery.The butterfly cascade earrings in these photos are vintage Christian Dior, created in 1966.
One of my favourite looks of the day was this Anne Boleyn inspired mini dress with puff sleeves which worked beautifully with the Jacobean decor at Dorfold, both being only a generation apart in history.
Emma's designs are innovative and fashion forward which makes her designs unconventional in the bridal world, and which makes them exceptional and exquisite.
