Continuing with the beautiful escapism of weddings this week… we head to Hooton Pagnell for a sublimely sustainable styled shoot! The early sunshine is a delight; the look is natural, organic and elegant, and the special touches (cake! calligraphy! candles!) are FABULOUS!

Mark Crayden captured the shoot. We all loved his raw and effortless talent to be able to capture emotion, as well as the transitioning season. We were inspired by seasonal flowers, consisting of pretty peachy hues, a Pantone blue pop and with subtle earthy touches. Cut and bulb form was key to Sam of Fantail Designer Florist, whilst the use of moss and eco-friendly techniques were also adopted throughout. No floral foam was used for our inspirational shoot.

The transition between Winter and Spring is something that the team were keen to focus on, as this is often a season that is overlooked. Luckily, the sun shone and we were able to use the beautiful grounds of our venue, Hooton Pagnell Hall (and abundance of glorious sunshine!) to capture the seasonal transitions.

It’s springtime and we have the most wonderfully fresh wedding ideas with the prettiest florals and sublime stationery in delicate pastel shades.
