words by Emily Jayne Weddings

Norwood park is a country estate, nestled in the Nottinghamshire countryside. A place ideal for weddings wishing to combine grandeur and a classic quintessential English backdrop.

When Laura and Emily began organising this styled shoot they wanted to bring together classic and timeless elements pairing the Morgan 110 car with chic modern lines of the Peter Posh black tuxedo.

The show stopper moment of this shoot is the minimalist high neck crushed satin Hera Couture dress from Bridal Warwickshire. A dress that screams luxury, effortless elegance and impeccable tailoring.

The exterior of Norwood park lent itself to this vision with the Georgian windows and oversized white front door.

The styling and accessories all had their part to play and were chosen carefully. The shoes by Freya Rose London hinted to the something blue and Hermione Harbutts stand out hair band was the perfect switch for an “evening look”! Deciding to capture this in direct flash photography showed off the fun a couple can have on their wedding day.

Aine and Tom are a real couple, with their love for music bringing them together. They travel all over the country busking in local towns. When they were asked to model in the shoot they were overjoyed and despite the forecast of snow they still made the long trip to us. Their chemistry and connection is at the forefront of these images and they made the entire shoot as natural and real as possible.

Throughout the shoot we also wished to bring textured elements and a pop of colour. This was mainly through the stunning florals created by Flowers in the Wild. The blousy bouquet gave movement to the photographs and the texture of the poppys included were definitely a wow moment!

The gallery at Norwood park brings stunning natural light, impressive floor to ceiling mirrors and grand gold chandeliers. We decided to style this with a single long banqueting table, continuing the beautiful florals through the middle in bowls and stoneware jars.

The table was styled by Rustic Rose events. Using varying heights in candles, textures through glass candle holders and hand torn wild flower stationery by Paige & Co, the styling brought a prettiness to the shoot, with blush pinks and nude tones.

Overall, the shoot encompassed elegance, timelessness and an element of fun. We enjoyed every moment of creating this shoot and seeing our ideas come to life in both of our photographs is a great feeling!
