Wedding Inspiration | 1920s’ autumn elegance at Tudor Farmhouse Clearwell, Gloucestershire
Back in the autumn I had the pleasure of working with a team of talented wedding suppliers to create a 1920s inspired wedding which also embraced the wonderful colours of autumn.
I was approached by Charlotte from White Wedding Event Hire who was interested in showcasing some of the venue styling props she currently offers to couple. After chatting we decided wanted to create something that was elegant and to feature autumn colours. I approached local boutique hotel here in the Forest of Dean Tudor Farmhouse. A small hotel who specialise in small intimate wedding celebrations. The gardens of the hotel offer a variety of backdrops perfect for photographs and the interiors perfect if the weather is perhaps not perfect on the day. I decided to use suppliers both local to the area (I really wanted to showcase the talents of the suppliers in the area) and who knew the space involved. Jo from Josephines Fabulous Flowers is the resident florist of the hotel and has a wonderful eye for creating quirky florals while using foliage that can be sourced ethical and locally. Amanda from Lottie Loves Cupcakes is a talented cake maker who I have had the pleasure of working with on a couple of previous occasions. Charlotte would provide the additional venue styling for the shoot.
The dress was generously supplied by The Walker and Walker a local bespoke dressmaker and tailor, whose dress designed went on to inspired the hair and make up provided by the talented Nadezhda. Daisy, our model was perfect for the theme.
An early start for all involved, Nadezhda and Daisy started the process of hair and make up in the loft bedroom at the hotel, a stunning room filled with natural light perfect for working in. The room also features an amazing bath - scroll down - it was perfect for an image.
Jo, Amanda and Charlotte worked together to transform the spaces in the main hotel, showcasing not only their talents but the quirkiness of the venue. As the photographer, my job simple - capture what is going on and create images that will show everyone’s talents and their finished work.
