I have been very remis and haven’t told you about this wonderful wedding shoot. It took place at Blacknest Golf and Country Club situated in the rural countryside of my home county Hampshire. It is a beautiful setting. We were there in February, and yes it was a bit chilly! When I arrived the mist was still lingering in the weak February sun making the venue look quite ethereal and magical. In the summer months they have tipis, which look like a stunning place to have your wedding. The whole venue had a relaxed friendly feel to it and all the staff were so welcoming.
There were so many talented suppliers taking part in this shoot, that was organised by Hayley from the venue and Avalon from Avalon Photography. I have listed all the suppliers at the end of this blog as there were quite a few who contributed to this wedding shoot
However I do want to tell you about the fabulously friendly Emma from Scrumptious Bakes by Emma, as without her I would not have even been aware of this shoot. Plus her cakes and macarons are simply stunning and mouth watering. Emma really will help you celebrate your special occasion.
Of course it wouldn’t be a wedding shoot without the brides dress, and we had 3 gorgeous designs. These were provided by Twirl Bridal located in Petersfield. The very talented Lucy Bernier brought out the natural beauty of our bride as she was responsible for hair and makeup. She had her work cut out with our 3 different looks, but she rose to the occasion and made our bride look absolutely flawless and radiant.
I think you also need flowers at a wedding. We had some beautiful flowers from Flower Vogue in Grayshott The floral crown they supplied for the last look was so beautiful, with some of my favourite flowers in it, including beautiful delicate astrantia
I used some of my best loved wedding jewellery designs for this shoot, as well as a couple of new designs. For the final dress I went for my most popular single pearl wedding pendant and drop earrings set in bridal white. Well the flower crown was so stunning anything else would have just looked wrong.
I was delighted to be able to use my brand new cala lily and pearl wedding necklace and drop earrings. The 2nd dress had a deep back v so I created a backdrop necklace to show this off. Always remember it is good idea for a bride to look good from the back. When you are walking down the aisle this will be a lasting image the majority of your family and friends will see!
