Drooling of those oh so perfect insta images of brides able to wed in the most stunning locations? The ones with the most perfect backdrop? Modern elopements are more relevant than ever right now. Taking inspiration from the most dreamy locations such as Australia for the ultimate sunset shoot. Giving life and inspiration to our couples who aren’t able to marry abroad. You can still have your dream right here, you just need some clever people on your day and a clear vision.
Inspired by Australian and mid Western weddings, we set about a mood board and finding those important people to work with. Finding the right photographer was the most important element. Someone who gets the vibe you are looking to achieve and Emmy from @vanitas_life
came highly reccomended.
Emmy exlains that the dresses are so intricate with layers of soft fabric and exquisite detailing, I was conscious to highlight these elements and to have fun with the textures and fabrics.
The dresses are a mix between sexy and fun allowing us to create those perfect posed portraits. As well as the candid images of the bride giggling with her bridesmaids and dancing in the sun.
Pryors hayes was carefully selected to offer the perfect selection of shooting locations.
Pryors Hayes is set in the heart of the Cheshire Countryside. It boasts a unique style of rustic and countryside charm set within 120 acres of tree lined fairways, lakes and gardens. It was an obvious choice and the team there are extra helpful and accommodating.
Daniella Ingle was our chosen MUA @daniellamakeuphair. After posting my mood boards on social media, Daniella instantly reached and out. She could see exactly what we were try to achieve with the shoot.
Kate from @perfect_bouquet_full_of_flowers and I have worked together before, she is the queen of dried flowers so she was a natural fit for the project.Kate used some super unusual flowers and leaves to create her stunning displays. These included bleached ruscus, gyposophila, grass and fern, fried palm leaves, stelitzia leaves, bleached amaranths and lunar.Of course there was also alot of Pampas grass and 70’s style glass vases. The bouquets were trimmed with ribbons from @silkandpurl
Our gorgeous model Amber was recommended to us and she was an absolute joy to work with. Amber was so professional and you wouldn’t know that while it looks sunny and warm, it was actually freezing. Amber didn’t complain once. Superstar!
The shoot was planned within a week and completed within 2 quite an achievement.
