Today’s wedding is just pure inspiration: I fell head over heels for the flowers and styling of the day, and I adore Sarah and John’s wedding look. Elmore Court is wonderful, and the Gillyflower is the loveliest space for a relaxed and stylish wedding reception.

“The flowers were rich with added feathers and ribbons – for all bouquets. Over all very elegant styling in the stately home, sympathetic to its surroundings…with the added twist of balloons to break up the decor. The Gillyflower was more eclectic with animal vases, brass candlesticks, wooded vases and copper hurricane lights. Our florist/stylist mastered our vision and it could not have been more perfect: Rachel Flowers – The March Hare Floral Design http://www.marchhare.co.uk

We hired lights and other parts of decor, the stately home really spoke for itself and needed very little styling. The Gillyflower we tried to keep things within the same design fold and not introduce too many differing elements. Etsy was a HUGE help, this was our second wedding within a month so we were really busy with details which totally paid off.

What else does your wedding photographer do? I love that every creative person I know has another string to their bow… some photographers also shoot sports, or families, specialise in SEO or designer stationery. For Jo and Nic (Jo Hansford Photography) it’s something a little more exciting… and I LOVE this shoot!

We’re Jo and Nic, who have been capturing weddings all over UK, overseas in Italy and Spain together since 2003 – over 350 weddings and counting! In 2012 we decided to add a new string to our bow and we started capturing horses. Having grown up loving riding and horses, I was fascinated to capture these stunning, majestic animals in the artform of still photographs.

By the beginning of 2016, it felt like time to combine our two big passions in a creative shoot with horses and brides. Needless to say, we also wanted to do something a bit different!
