Absolute Magazine Bridal Special July 2018

Our Fairytale photo shoot from the stunning Stanhill Court Hotel is now published and available to view via Absolute Magazine (Magazine and online) 


Inspired by the beautiful and grey green hues of the British winter countryside and all the

enigmatic ‘Grimm’s Fairytales’ we ever read in our childhoods, we set out to create a visual feast

for the eye with our latest styled photo shoot. Our venue is the wonderful Stanhill Court Hotel,


located just outside of Horley in Surrey . A wonderful and historic setting, the hotel itself is

nestled in 35 acres of ancient woodland and Sussex countryside, playing host to grazing sheep

and wild roaming deer. The building has a long history ,being built in 1881 when it was originally

used as a family residence and now a grand and gorgeous Hotel and Wedding venue.

It was the perfect setting for our Winter Fairytale styled inspiration, the stunning original interiors

with decadent Oak panelling gave our just the right amount of drama and historical kudos to our

photo shoot . We all particularly loved the ‘Bavarian’ feel to the main guest dining room where

our Top table set up was located and we couldn’t help but to dress our table in its influence!.

Our beautiful model Layla was completely in character as our White Queen/Sleeping beauty in

the Antonia Suite where we photographed using the huge window seat area overlooking winter

blooming red roses and part of the extensive gardens as our backdrop - we loved styling her in

cool toned editorial make up and coupling this with the beautiful dresses of Fara Sposa from

Mode Bridal of Hove. The amazing lulalipin.com created some bespoke head dresses specifically

for us and was inspired by frost bitten twigs and woodland nymphs . All of our talented, creative

suppliers came together to entice the future ‘Winter Bride’ into creating a beautiful opulent,

magical Winter Fairy tale Wedding of their very own.
