The recent wedding photo shoot collaboration we did with Honeysuckle and Castle Wedding coordinators in on BOHO Weddings. We are all so excited about this and you can read the lovely article here.
“This shoot is full to the brim with the most gorgeous rustic and glamorous details, mixed with a classic English country theme. The cake table especially is outstanding as is the overall decoration. I know a lot of you lovely brides to be are just going to LOVE this shoot.” BOHO WEDDINGS
When wedding planners and coordinators Honeysuckle and Castle invited me to be part of a styled photo shoot at one of my favourite wedding venues, The Riding School at Calke Abbey, Derbyshire, how could I say no? Helen from Honeysuckle and Castle had a clear vision of what she wanted to achieve, determined to show the Riding school and its grounds in their full glory, she stayed very close to the true nature of Calke Abbey “The un-stately, stately home”.
“The house, it’s fascinating history and the surrounding Derbyshire countryside were our key inspiration points. We wanted to bring these together so that we could connect the Riding School with the rest of the surrounding estate, whilst demonstrating its rustic opulence and glamour. It was our intention to do this in a natural, almost wild and undressed manner that would complement and coordinate with the colours/tones/themes of the interior of the house and the wild beauty of its parkland.” Honeysuckle and Castle
There were a few pre photo-shoot meetings beforehand to make sure that everyone knew what they needed to bring along on the day. I think we all found this really useful as we could discuss ideas and certain looks we wanted to create. It also meant that we had a plan, so that on the day we were able to get the shoot we wanted in the time allowed. You can’t beat a good bit of organisation!
I am sure you will all agree that the images are simply stunning, I love the gorgeous colour scheme running though out, the lovely props that Helen sourced (the little rocking horse I am very fond of), the flowers, cakes make up and hair! I could go on and on swooning over this but I will let you enjoy them. :) xXx
