“The idea behind this shoot was to bring both glamour and elegance to the country. The pretty blossom tree provides a beautiful focal point, dressed with pearls and crystals and sprinkled with love notes. The guest tables are dressed with soft lace and the bride’s bouquet is full of gorgeous white peonies.
“The blossom tree was coupled with the statement piece LOVE table – bringing both romance and a touch of whimsical!”
Following on from the Vintage Country Styled Wedding Shoot at Bawdon Lodge Farm we featured last week, today we have the stunning pictures from the second shoot which took place. The inspiration for the shoot, which was again planned and co-ordinated by Val of Benessamy Weddings and Events, was a relaxed, rustic country tea…
“The inspiration for this theme was the natural rustic charm of afternoon tea on an English country farm. Everything from the bleached pine sweetheart table, informally dressed with burlap runners, gorgeous mismatched china and informal linen, to the ‘vintage meets rustic’ inspired Polka Dots and Pinstripes stationery, and beautiful rustic bouquets of hydrangeas, roses and Gypsophila. Afternoon tea would not be complete of course without delicious scones and cakes for all to enjoy!
“The hay store ‘theatre’ provided the perfect opportunity for the couple to relax and enjoy a moment of reflection, followed by a refreshing glass of homemade lemonade from the outdoor drinks station.”
Today we have pictures from the first of three beautiful styled shoots which took place at Bawdon Lodge Farm to share with you. Photographed by Lumiere Photography, the shoots were planned to showcase the versatility of the farm in preparation for when it launches as a wedding venue later this year. Benessamy Weddings and Events planned and co-ordinated the shoots…
“Bawdon Lodge Farm is a family owned country farm in Nanpantan, Leicestershire, and is due to launch as a country wedding venue later this year, available for weddings in 2014. At Benessamy Weddings and Events we are pleased to be working with Richard and Lynn Bailey to assist them in the management of weddings at Bawdon Lodge Farm.
“Richard and Lynn were keen to work with creative wedding suppliers from the local area, who they would be happy to recommend to their wedding and events clients when the venue opens next year. The idea behind the styled wedding shoot was to showcase the versatility of Bawdon Lodge Farm, both as a country farm wedding venue and as a marquee wedding venue. Hence, we planned and co-ordinated 3 styled shoots.
“The inspiration for the first shoot was a vintage country wedding…”
Today we are featuring some beautiful pictures, taken by Jo Richards Photography, from a vintage styled wedding shoot which took place at Pincents Manor in Calcot, Berkshire. Jo Richards, Andrea Fearon and Clare MacDonald of Digital Paper Studios styled the shoot, and inspired by current vintage trends, the shoot was created by utilising the skills and products of a group of wedding professionals from the Berkshire Wedding Community.
Included with the images are quotes from each of the suppliers regarding their involvement in the shoot…
“When the BWC decided upon a vintage theme for their collaboration I immediately thought of the typical 1940’s and 1950’s style of Rita Hayworth and Marilyn Monroe; nude coloured eyes with plenty of eyeliner, teamed with the signature red lips. As with all wedding make-up it is essential to get the base just right, but with vintage make-up the skin has to be flawless. A light dusting of coral blush gives colour and softly complements a bride’s natural features.” Emma Rivers of Emma Rivers Bridal Make-up
“My hair ideas for our vintage inspired wedding shoot started off the same way as I approach a wedding hair trial for a bride. It is vital the hairstyle complements the style of gown and that the hairstyle works with the bride’s choice of accessories. For the longer vintage lace gown and beautiful birdcage veil I felt a more elegant, polished, vintage creation would be the perfect finishing touch to the overall look. My creation was based on a low chignon which was beautifully detailed with pin curls and Marcel effect waves. Because of the stunning birdcage veil I decided to keep the hairstyle simple around the front and work most of the detail at the sides and back, creating a beautifully elegant look with vintage inspired detail.
We just love the pictures from this shoot, photographed by D’Arcy Benincosa Photography! When D’Arcy lived in Europe, one of her favourite places was The Scottish Highlands, and having read about the rich culture she wanted to bring some of the old traditions to the highlands of Park City, Utah…
“Traditional Scottish weddings are small affairs, and include customs such as the Maid of Honour washing the bride’s feet before the ceremony, the joining of hands with clan tartan during the ceremony, toasting with the finest Scotch, eating lots of bread and cheese during the reception, and getting married in the highland groves.
“The lovely arch was handcrafted and tied together using limbs from the local willow trees and as the leaves were cut fresh that morning they remained green while all the other trees in the mountains were variations of the bride’s red hair. The arch echoed the green of the bridesmaid dresses from Anthropologie, while the furs came from our grandmothers’ closets.
“The hair and make-up was a simple affair; lightly crafted braids that could be taken right off an ancient or modern Scottish lassie, the make-up of warm colours and soft highlights. The invitations and thank you notes were handcrafted, with delicate calligraphy expressing the Scottish phrase ‘Moran Taing’, meaning ‘Many Thanks’. The challenge given to the florist was to create wedding flowers based around the Scottish thistle, which was used throughout the bouquets and the centrepieces. The final thing we wanted to make this shoot transport us to Scotland was the professional bagpipe player we hired to come and play.
“This shoot was simply stunning; each image has a golden glow that is unique to this little wedding. The locals of Park City came out from their houses to see the event and the feeling of community that is present in the images is tangible. It was a perfect day, and all that we hoped it would be.”
