Classic Regal Beauty – a very British bridal shoot with Arusha’s Images Photography

No two weddings are ever the same – every one is different because ultimately they come down to personality. And that’s why I love writing about weddings so much! Weddings are as unique as fingerprints: your stories will be as different as your choices of venue, photographer and details…

and oh, do I have a stunning styled shoot for you this afternoon! Hot from the lens of photographer Arusha this one blasts red, white and blue – and takes inspiration from the more luxurious aspects of the venue where the shoot took place.

Arusha told me, “I love the age old romance of red roses, and took inspiration from a poem, this time by Robert Burns:

“My love is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June:
My love is like a melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.”

I felt that with the red roses, and the red Jaguar I sourced, that other strong colours would naturally be blue and bridal white: so red, white and blue it was.

I decided on using black candlesticks for the wedding breakfast table, to go along with the deeper colour theme. I really like the passion strong colours evoke on your wedding day.

The regal bouquet by Michelle at Valerie Ann’s Florist includes blue hydrangeas, blue delphiniums, grand prix roses, deep pink astilbi, and natural ferns to soften the look. Michelle told me,  “I chose this as I loved the striking colours, they feel very luxurious and make a real wedding day statement.”

The bride wears three fabulous wedding dresses: Jenny Packham – Bardot, Alan Hannah – Summer and Augusta Jones – Penny with an Alan Hannah Lace cape.
