Blacknest Wedding Shoot, ideas for a rural outside wedding in the Hampshire countryside

romantic wedding ideas for a bride

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!

Devon Elopement Wedding Shoot

Find your perfect wedding jewellery for a boho beach elopement wedding in the UK. Modern bridal pearl jewellery ideas for a bride

On a cold rainy day in February, some intrepid wedding suppliers set off very early to a Devon beach.

They were aiming for one beach but there were problems getting to it. Luckily I knew the area a bit and I directed them to my all time favourite Devon beach. It was just round the bay from where they were. I could even recommend the best fish and chip shop that was about 10 minutes away from the beach and was on their way home

I really love the colours and tones of this wedding shoot. I only had details of the beautiful wedding dress that was to be worn, so I could provide wedding necklaces, bracelets and earrings to compliment the design.

I revamped some of my wedding pearl bracelets. As well as sterling silver, I have added them in gold or rose gold versions. Although I don’t have as many rose gold or gold charms as I do silver , it is still possible to add a charm to these new variations. Either to create your perfect wedding jewellery or as a gift for your bridesmaids or flowergirls.

Woodland Ivy, Wedding Ideas for a Modern Alternative Bride

Woodland Ivy, ideas for an alternative wedding for a modern bride

How amazing is this wedding shoot?

It was all the brain child of Lee from Photography by Will. I think he did an amazing job. His attention to details and the care he took to ensure he had closeup images of everyones products was awesome. I, for one, am very grateful for these beautiful images.

There were 3 different wedding dresses planned for the day but unfortunately rain and light stopped play. So we were only able to shoot 2 different bridal dresses. However that does mean we have to go back and shoot the last dress. At least thats what I think….

It was the details that made this wedding shoot. From the bespoke converse trainers, the handpainted leather jacket, the stunning veils, rings and, of course, jewellery from Bish Bosh Becca.

Bish Bosh Becca provided some old favourites, such as these gold plated crochet cuffs with white pearls and gemstones. but they were worn in a thoroughly modern way

However, it soon became apparent that I needed to up my game and create some new jewellery designs for this alternative modern wedding shoot. The long earrings above needed a simple back drop lariat to suit the halter neckdress, which had a very low back

Fot the second look I added a modern teardrop locket and layered it with a new pearl choker necklace. It was decided that this shoot needed the warm tones of gold as the predominant metal.

I thought I would also add a back drop to the pearl choker necklace. I seem to be in back drop necklace mode, so watch this space. The back drop chain necklace has a loop at the top which means that it can be added or removed from the pearl choker

Then the look was finished with some gold plated huggie earrings with white pearl drop. A simple sleek design that complimented the sleek polished teardrop locket

I have added all the jewellery designs to the website and they can be found here

Goth Maternity Shoot

This is very different from my usual photo shoot and I did have to think outside the box.

But this is the wonderful thing about collaborating with other creatives on shoots that are outside what you usually think you do. Who thought I would be in a postition to contribute to this gothic beauty’s shoot and provide jewellery that would add the final finishing touch so beautifully!

It was all about seeing my jewellery in a different way and realising that is it very versatile and can be worn no matter what your style is

The sentiment behind this shoot is really quite wonderful.
Hayley Gell Photography wanted to create this shoot for her sister, who was 34 weeks pregnant at the time.
She wanted to give her something she would look back on and remember this moment and feel happier with the changes she was going through.
To make her feel empowered and beautiful. I think she definately acheived that objective.


It was an amazing and awe inspiring shoot, and one I was delighted to have contributed to.

I create the back drop lariat in black especially for the shoot so I do need to get my skates on and take some nice images of it so I can add it to Bish Bosh Becca
