I am a wedding photographer based in Dorset. A few months ago I gathered together all of the best wedding suppliers I know to create a wedding inspiration shoot. Many of the suppliers involved were already friends of ours and the others have now become new friends ūüôā The venue was easy to choose as it’s actually the venue for my own wedding which was at the end of May!

So after concocting a Pinterest mood board for the shoot, months of bouncing ideas back and forth over Facebook, dress fittings and meet-ups over tea, we created our ‚ÄúBotanical Luxe‚ÄĚ styled shoot! We were keen to have a rural, rustic backdrop but to create a modern fresh look.

Botanical styling by Concept Flowers

The “Botanical Luxe” theme included a colour scheme of green, white and gold. We had one bridal model with three different dresses and looks, including dresses by Naomi Neoh, Jesus Peiro and Halfpenny London. We also had a flower girl in a grey tutu and floral hoop ‘bouquet’, as well as three different hair looks one included a beautiful flower crown. Two local horses in the field behind the venue were also keen to get involved!

Amazing stationery by Benny And The Bird

As well as this we had a mock table set up including a hanging floral display, gold detailed crockery, cutlery and glassware, botanical watercolour style stationery and a cake table/display including a watercolour cake, gold luxe cake pops and biscuits with a botanical iced design.

  • Do you have 5 minutes to read something really romantic? The story of @durhamroseuk  is wonderful: a prospective groom with an idea for the perfect engagement ring, who had to search far and wide and eventually design his own! After quite an adventure in the making, she said yes, they married... and the UK's leading bespoke engagement ring supplier was born! There's a little more to it, including the Dragons Den bit - but you can read all about that on the blog! For now, I'm in LOVE with this pendant Durham Rose created to match one of their bespoke rings. Isn't it wonderful? #customrings #bespokeengagementrings #uniqueengagementrings #engaged  #gettingmarried #durhamrose #durhamrosejewellery #bespokejewellery #behindthescenes #rosegold #ballerinaring #ballerinanecklace #matchingset #handmadejewellery #instajewellerygroup #hattongarden #london #fashion #design #handmade #bespoke #jewellery #jewelry #weddingring #wedding #engagementring #weekendvibes #dazzle #ringoftheday #ringsofinstagram
