Bridal editorial for Love Our Wedding Magazine
This beautiful photo shoot was photographed at Capron House (part of the Cowdray Estate) which is located approximately 50 miles SW from the centre of central London-.
Capron House is in the town of Midhurst which is absolutely beautiful and ‘quintessentially English’ . Capron House itself used to be the town’s Grammar School and the famous writer H G Wells attended there.
I was inspired by the stunning location and ceiling to floor windows of The Pearson Room and the beautiful enclosed walled garden where our photo shoot was set. Our table setting has an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ feel to it, the gorgeous Spring blossom and floral palette truly evoking the sense of an English Summer Garden Wedding
I drew upon images that I had studied of Audrey Hepburn bridal modelling for Givenchy and the photography of Horst P Horst (Mainbocher Corset) to create this classical and glamorous look. Our model Layla wears a stunning fitted silk fishtail dress from Morilee by Madelaine Gardner (5506) and completely re creates the elegance and style of Audrey Hepburn in this dress- its figure hugging delicately beaded bra backed bodice create the most elegant of feminine shapes. Our flowers were curated by the amazing French floral designer Lydie Dalton, we also photographed Layla in front of the beautiful ceiling to floor windows of the main house, the Georgian glass creates a symmetry and Architectural backdrop that accentuates Layla and the shape of the dress.... glamorous exactly as you would expect from the Lady of the Manor!
Layla’s hair and make up was created by Cara Macdonald MUA and Sammie Chard (your event stylist) Their brief was to draw on their knowledge of 50’s and 60’s hair and make up elegance and they did an amazing job- we think Layla looks the epitome of beauty and class.
