The story behind this editorial shoot I designed, planned and styled is an intimate love affair, between two star-crossed lovers. Sarah and James have shared so many experiences together, love and loss. Their wedding, shared with their very closest family is just the beginning of the rest of their lives together. A celebration of their love and new beginnings of what’s to come. Intimate in size, refined in detail and timeless in experience.
The concept for this shoot was to portray an elegant, romantic and sophisticated intimate wedding, showcasing how an intimate wedding is as beautiful and luxurious as one with a larger guest list, with gorgeous details that capture the heart and memory. The colour palette was romantic and sophisticated combining a neutral base with mint green and grey, light foliage touches and accents of gold.
Morden Hall in South London was the ideal venue to tell this story, the architectural detail of this beautiful 18th-century country house tucked away in National Trust parkland made for the most perfect setting. The ceremony was set in Hawthorn, taking advantage of the natural light in this beautiful intimate space, whilst the elegant tablescape was set with beautiful stationery, flowers, tableware and linens at the bottom of a grand sweeping staircase in Willow.
Capturing the authenticity of a real wedding that was luxurious and refined, our real model couple were clearly deeply in love with each other, which showed through the imagery. Every detail was considered and with the modern couple in mind, and helped tell the story that intimate weddings may be small in numbers, but they are mighty in love, celebration and joy.
