The concept of the shoot was to tell the story of an adventurous, aristocratic, modern bride - whose interests are inspired by history, art, and nature. She’s well-travelled, and an explorer at heart. She's not afraid to be different, and enjoys playing with the concepts of minimalism and mindfulness in her view of the world. She's feminine in a contemporary way - respectful of the legacy and heirlooms her family have left her - but also fiercely independent, strong, and soulful. Loosely inspired by the videogame and film character of Lara Croft, this bride is fearless and authentic in all the right ways.
We told her story through a colour palette centered around earthy browns and muted neutrals, with simple tablescapes balanced by exciting floral installations. The overall look we wanted to achieve was one of understated luxury, accentuated with pops of boldness. The magical venue that hosted us was Euridge Manor, a gem nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds in the UK. Not only is every detail, every room, every garden pathway, and every architectural feature of this venue absolutely exquisite – there is also a truly staggering variety of spaces available to create an unforgettable wedding guest journey. We wanted to showcase just how much Euridge Manor has to offer in terms of multiple-day weekend weddings, so we designed the story in three chapters: starting from a welcome dinner on the evening before the wedding day, through to the wedding day itself, and then onto a relaxed morning of the day after.
