Back in February, we had the absolute pleasure of using the stunning Dorfold Hall in Nantwich, Cheshire as a backdrop for a bridal inspiration shoot (which you can see here and here). Dorfold Hall has opened it's doors as an exclusive wedding venue in Cheshire and is a perfect setting with breathtaking views. As it was rather cold last time and wanting to make use of the gorgeous summer gardens, the team were back again last week. This time we shot exclusively outdoors in Dorfold's amazing grounds and we were very lucky with the weather!
Dorfold's gardens are an abundance of rhododendrons, roses and peonies in the summer making the most romantic of backdrops for any wedding. With this at the forefront of our minds we created a look and feel for the shoot that was influenced by the back to nature, colourful vibe of Pre-Raphaelite artists and their work with a hint of quintessential English Rose. Breige, of Flowers by Breige did an amazing job of the florals; stunning bouquets reflecting the roses and peonies of the gardens as well as the pretty tablescape which also featured some calligraphy courtesy of Postman's Knock in Nantwich.
Hair and makeup was beautiful and oh-so-pretty bringing out the natural beauty of our bride for the day, Megan, who wore Gardenia and Phaedra gowns by Claire Pettibone from Lillya Grace Bridal in Nantwich. Our handsome groom, Aaron, looked charming in a perfectly tailored suit by Papas Tailoring. Thank you also to Moodys 1883 for supplying three amazing engagement rings, including this gorgeous tourmaline gemstone with diamonds featured below. Last but by no means least, we had an angelic little flower girl, Maisy. Thank you Maisy, you were a star!
Thank you so much to Dorfold Hall for having us back. It was wonderful to work with the dream team again, thank you all so much for your hard work!
