Ahhh… I’m LOVING writing blog posts for you this week… because it’s summer on my screen and that makes me happy! Today’s feature is lush, sunny, and so captivating you can almost smell the lemon groves. A luxury Mediterranean inspired summer bridal photoshoot at the romantic Almonry Barn wedding venue in Somerset, organised by lovely Ellie Lou Photography. Our bride wears a beautiful silk wedding dress with lace detail by fabulous bespoke bridal dressmaker Ailsa Munro and a colourful citrus-infused colour palette of yellows, orange and pink tones and gold / gold leaf details.
Almonry Barn is a luxury, award-winning wedding venue in Somerset. The barn has been beautifully updated with stylish interiors, perfect for a romantic Somerset wedding.
The beautiful silk design dress with lace detail (“Maymie”) is by our favourite South West dressmaker, Ailsa Munro.
Daisy Lane Floral Design designed the floral arrangements, which included a colourful bouquet, a set of floral hoops and a beautiful moongate set amongst the trees in the orchard. The flowers included in the photoshoot were antirrhinum, asclepias, astilbe, cosmos, dahlia, hypericum, sweet peas, lysimachia, stocks, roses (Buttercup, David Austin Darcy, David Austin Julliet) and eucalyptus.
The table styling included gold centrepieces with colourful floral arrangements with the table scattered with lemons and greenery, gold candlesticks from Zara Home and pink tea lights from H&M Home. The calligraphy menus and pebble place names with gold leaf detail were designed by Ivy Inks Paper Co who also designed the calligraphy invitation with lemon yellow envelope and gold-leaf wax seal. The lemon-yellow silk ribbons were provided by Silk & Purl. The beautiful buttercream cake with colourful texture and gold leaf detail was designed by Baking Chick.
Louise Alway and Laura Le Page created a natural look with hair and makeup for model Sarah, who wore gold accessories by Victoria Fergusson Accessories and rose-pink shoes with gold detail by Emmy London. Model Josh wore a black-tie suit from Burton Menswear.
