English country elegance with subtle fairytale-inspired style touches

I have a rare gem of an editorial shoot to share with you today, lovelies – a dreamy screenful of images which will warm your heart and bring sunshine to your soul. Maybe photoshoots are missing a trick by not capturing the sheer joy of a wedding: but today we set that to rights with the most beautiful girl in a truly incredible setting, smiling and enjoying every second of her day…

The styling touches are exquisite, fine art luxury and I would encourage you to take inspiration from them to style your own wedding: whether you fall in love with the peony and rose bouquet, the show stopping Ersa Atelier gown or those glorious deep blue candles – take a little of this carefully curated shoot with you today and let it shine onto your own wedding day, do.

Anastasia from Entwined Productions design studio tells us a little more about the shoot…

Inspired by the work of legendary Tim Walker who marries imagination with reality so well, we were eager to reclaim the feel of a fairytale castle hidden in the heart of an enchanted woodland that would serve as wedding inspiration.

We wanted to explore the pairing of the traditional elements with modern accents, all in a dreamy, bright and heartwarming vision of a happy bride.

We wanted to add a subtle fairytale flair without overpowering the understated feel of the shoot letting the elements speak for themselves – the beautiful intricate detail of the dress, the interior of the ballroom, the romantic feel of the traditional British countryside landscape. Working from a backstory of a girl that feels – and looks – like a princess in a literary romance we imagined a setting full of wonder and beautiful antique elements side by side with the modern reality.

We worked with a complementing colour palette of blush pinks, nudes, duck egg, white and deep navy blue all off-set by a dreamy smiling vision of a girl who almost stepped down from the pages of your favourite novel.

Beautifully lush textured florals added to the romantic feel with English roses and peonies.

Pairing an antique mahogany table, vintage candlesticks and a beautiful stone facade of Cornwell Manor with bold blue colours and perspex Mademoiselle chairs from Wedhead spoke to us as a metaphor for bringing together vintage ornate and clean modern pieces.

At the same time the shot at the ballroom balcony was our interpretation on the Tim Walker iconic image and was inspired by the beautiful balcony of Cornwell Manor and a 3 meter long train of an Erza Atelier dress.
