In essence of Spring approaching, I was inspired to design an editorial with a modern fairytale theme in mind including blush pink tones, elegant bridal gowns and beautiful bridal details. The venue, Penton Park is set in the heart of the countryside in Andover which was the most perfect setting for our photoshoot. Katy (Hair & Make Up Artist) and I wanted to create a couple of different looks that were equally beautiful!

Cinderella Style / First Bridal Look

The first look was a French style up-do with a princess style dress by Pronovias (can be purchased from Windsor and Eton Brides). As Lauren, our model had blue eyes and blonde hair, Katy chose a soft smokey look with a nude lip which is a big trend at the moment. We also fitted a delicate gold leaf hair comb. The dress was completed by a jewelled belt by Donna Crain and a gorgeous full length veil.

The Details

The stationary for this photoshoot was designed by Lou Paper. Her calligraphy skills are AMAZING and her style fitted perfectly with our modern fairytale theme. When shooting details, I love to combine various objects including bridal accessories and floral elements. On a wedding day I will do a similar set up, I really feel like this is an important part of the gallery even though it might seem like a minor detail – it really adds to the story of your of your wedding day. Our bouquet was designed and made by Seventh Heaven Events who combined blush pink and white flowers with green foliage – I loved the texture of this bouquet!

Sparkles, Jewels and More Sparkles | Second Bridal Look

Our second bridal look had a much softer and relaxed up-do, still stunning and sophisticated. We switched hair pieces and went for something a little more extravagant as there would be no veil for this look. The dress was by Enzoani and this can be purchased from Windsor and Eton Brides.
