Having been a Wedding Photographer here in Hertfordshire for a while now, I finally decided to do my very first styled Wedding shoot in Autumn 2021! We are so lucky in Hertfordshire to be surrounded by beautiful Venues! I chose the Brickendonbury Estate just outside Hertford, Hertfordshire for this shoot. A stunning Georgian Mansion nestled in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside provides a stunning backdrop with extensive grounds boasting a moat and lots of cute little nooks and crannies to explore.

As a proud member of women's networking group The Mama Hive, I am very lucky to have got to know a very talented bunch of ladies with varying skillsets, so I came up with the shoot idea as a way of bringing them all together to bring my boho and vintage theme to life.

My main inspiration was working in harmony with nature. I made confetti from pressed autumn

leaves and drew upon the colours of autumn for the day. Beautiful soft apricot and cream shades were incorporated in the bouquet and the cocktails, while the semi-naked cake was kept simple with seasonal berries, flowers and eucalyptus. Kate from Daffodils & Rhubarb brought together a collection of earthy brown plus cream-toned stoneware and other accessories to complement the organic-cotton macramé wall hanging.

An outdoor stove with marshmallows for toasting and a horse box bar complete with hay bales, blankets and twinkling festoon lights created a cosy autumnal vibe in the evening.

The model looked incredible in a vintage-inspired dress from Indiebride London and finished off her look with a delicate pearl necklace and matching thread earrings by Georgina S Clark.
