This is one of those styled shoots where you feel like you’ve been in a pretty daydream for an hour or so and emerge smiling away! It was sent to me by Paola de Paola, who teams up with the most amazing suppliers and always sends me something so beautiful in an array of themes and styles. That’s what we like here on Way Out Wedding: a varied choice!
This shoot was put together by Chosen Wedding, Paola de Paola Photography and Emma of Ladybird flowers, and here’s Kiki from Chosen to tell you all about the gorgeous day!
Chosen Wedding Fair is proud to present a photo shoot that was brought together by a collaboration of talented suppliers who are friends or exhibitors with Chosen Wedding.
With the idea of showcasing a contemporary styled vintage wedding – the style of the Chosen Wedding Fairs – we hope that the images show the unique, bespoke and fresh ideas that are on offer from these and more talented suppliers who are part of the Chosen family.
Our last shoot was all about fun, freedom and frolics. This one, in contrast, is about simplicity and the quiet moments before the big day – time and contemplation spent with friends, the relationship between ladies, the intimacy of friendship and, of course, the gorgeous dresses and accessories. Simple, romantic, pretty and absolutely within an affordable budget.
We set a soft, romantic and slightly rustic style and colour palette, complemented by the gorgeous flowers, macarons and marshamallows!
The dresses are both contemporary and classical vintage, which look beautiful with the shoes, accessories, lingerie and garters.
The shoot took place at the Cotswold hidden gem that is Merriscourt – a place so full of beauty, English country charm and tranquility that we just didn’t want to leave…
