A Romantic, Wistful Wedding Shoot at Oakley Hall

Today we have stunning pictures from a styled wedding shoot to share with you. The shoot took place at Oakley Hall, a magnificent 13th century mansion in Shropshire, and was organised and photographed by Jade Osborne Photography. Jade told us how the shoot came together…

“Oakley Hall wedding venue was the setting for the shoot. It is a stunning Queen Anne mansion set in the beautiful Shropshire countryside, on the borders of Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire. It is actually home to the Fisher family, who hire it out as an exclusive venue for weddings. There are many windows, all of them very tall and symmetrical and, although the building is Queen Anne, it reminded me of a French chateau, which is where the inspiration for the theme came from.

“I knew I wanted to create a romantic, wistful feel to the shoot, and it’s on that basis the dresses were chosen from Sarah’s Wedding Exchange. Caroline was our beautiful bride for the day, and rather than focusing on lots of accessories for her, I wanted to focus more on the overall look and feel of the shoot, the venue, and keep accessories simple and to a minimum. The flowers in Caroline’s hair worked perfectly for this – simple but so effective – and keeping her hair down kept the look simple.

“The dining room is decorated in a gorgeous muted green, and the muted pinks chosen for the theme worked beautifully. Pretty Little Vintage Trio China Hire did an amazing job in coming up with some lovely china pieces and glasses, as well as the lace for the table and candelabra. Hattie Boo Designs created the elegant French themed stationery with coordinating pinks.

“The Little Velvet Cake Company designed the gorgeous 3 tier cake, with intricate lace detailing to echo the lace tablecloth, and the flowers on the cake coordinated with the flowers in the model’s hair.

“Cheerful Blooms did a wonderful job of keeping the look cohesive with muted pinks and cream roses, all reflecting the romantic feel of the shoot.”
