Pocahontas Styled Shoot

Pocahontas - 093

Today, I have another styled shoot from Ruby and Stardust for you. Queens of the fairytale themed wedding ideas, Shannon and Georgina have put together a shoot where Pocahontas and John Smith get married! The styling is superb – check out the divine dress with its dusty pink colour and marabou feathers! – and the elements are easily replicated for your own big day.

The Story of the Day by Georgina

We were super lucky to be able to use the grounds of The Great Barn for our Pocahontas shoot – it has acres and acres of woodlands, lakes and greenland, which were the perfect setting for the woodland setting. We got back to nature and used lots of gorgeous autumnal colours in the flowers and natural feathers to keep in with the Pocahontas styling.

We created a tipi made from wooden branches and covered in flowers for our ceremony backdrop on the lake, and used the areas of natural beauty to capture these stunning images.

Cinderella Styled Shoot at Blenheim Palace

Fairytale Wedding Inspiration by Miss Munro and Sanshine Photogr

This blog is fast becoming a gallery of styled shoots. I love them! They provide so much eye candy and inspiration, plus a glimpse into all of the wonders your suppliers can magic up for you for your wedding day. This one is inspired by one of the most romantic fairy tales, Cinderella, which is the epitome of getting glammed up for a special day, and yet also being truly loved for who you are, even when you’ve got back into your raggy home clothes!!

This is a classic imagining of Cinders; an exquisite version full of splendour and luxury. I’m really in love with this wonderful shoot for its palette of golds and ivories, accented cleverly with hot pinks, warm cobalt blues, and peaches for pop value, its obvious romantic leanings owing to the corsets, tiaras and crowns, and the easily achievable details of painted pumpkins. Romance and style at its best from some of my favourite suppliers.

And Blenheim Palace is the perfect venue for whisking your imagination into romance and fairy tale. A grand setting, indeed!

Enchanted Brides Snow White Styled Shoot


By now, you know I’m a lover of the styled shoot. And that I’m a little bit partial to a Snow White theme. The reds and whites are filled with symbolism of purity and passion, not that you need to be pure of course, but they’re also sort of Christmassy, which is where I’m at at the moment: prematurely festive.

Styled shoots on the wedding blogs are your equivalent of a glossy magazine editorial – inspirational, aspirational and located just outside of reality. They’re a place where you lose yourself in a daydream of weddingness, and fabulous vendors and suppliers get to let fly their creativity, their artistic side, their talent, in a way that fully complements the services you’d get from them for your own big day.


Princess and the Pea Styled Shoot

Princess & The Pea - 339

I love this Princess and the Pea styled wedding shoot from Ruby and Stardust. The colours are perfect for your summer wedding. Green isn’t the obvious choice for the big day, but check out how it pops and complements every other colour around it. It ties them together and gives a lovely feeling of nature, and fresh air, and open space. 

There are beautiful and easy to achieve details to inspire you in this shoot, such as coloured glass jars, lots of tassels and lampshades hanging from branches, and gorgeous floral throws and linens. I’m thinking of wedding picnics and ceremonies in the woods or a beautiful garden. Pure summer romance.
