Create a fun and fresh spring wedding look with blue hydrangeas – Oakley Hall bridal shoot

Spring is well and truly in the air this morning – I’ve just come back from a wonderful little break in Richmond (we stayed in “a large Wedgewood vase” aka Culloden Tower – it was fantastic!!!) and the spring flowers were looking beautiful… so what could be better this morning than to share this beautiful spring wedding shoot with you.

The blue hydrangeas are divine! The whole look of the shoot is fresh and springlike, and it’s a wonderful look for a contemporary English wedding. Ideas and styling are by Alexandria Events (Alexandria is just so lovely!) and images are by Jacques Lloyd at Real Simple Photography.

Alexandria told me, “I jumped at the chance to hold our shoot at a venue as beautiful as Oakley Hall. The grounds are gorgeous, and there were so many lovely shoot locations we were spoilt for choice! I wanted to create a fun and fresh spring feel to the shoot, and luckily the weather was on our side that day (apart from a rather gusty wind!). Overall I would describe the shoot as colourful, feminine, and soft, with an emphasis on flowers and nature.

Inspiration and ideas for this wedding style

by Alexandria

All of the elements of the shoot blended perfectly, and working with such a fantastic and professional team, made it really easy! Originally I had planned on the colour scheme being more ‘pastel’ but that turned into a bolder look with the addition of the bright blue hydrangeas which complemented everything really well, and especially suited the colour of the Garden Suite, the new Wedding Reception room at Oakley Hall.

The stationery also had a floral theme and our designer, Kate, from Coral and Slate, hand-painted watercolour flowers to create the design.

My favourite ‘look’ of the day, is the rustic swing that we dressed with leaves and ribbons, and our gorgeous model, Anna Zeller, wore the Madeline- Isaac James ‘Harmony’ dress and an amazing veil covered in coloured flower petals.
