Inspired by the reality that anyone getting married this year really does feel like their wedding is nothing short of a fairy tale and that intimate weddings are currently the future we styled this luxury wedding editorial with a hint of contemporary glamour, whilst showcasing ‘princess’ as daring, regal and in love. The editorial design influenced by Hodsock’s grandeur was adorned in delicate florals and accented in deep mulberry tones, to ensure all styling elements could be malleable throughout autumn and spring.


Hodosock Priory is a country house steeped in history and set amongst 800 acres of rolling British countryside. The Tudor gatehouse exudes stateliness and for the first time since it became a recognised wedding venue, we followed the same steps as Henry IV to shoot right upon the turret!


We wanted to embody a beautiful mix of tradition and modernity throughout the shoot. By incorporating the shape of a classic candelabra but building them with contemporary Scandi candle holders by Stoff Nagel we gave the other traditional décor and edge.

Our fashion-forward bridal wear was from Cherie By Oui’s brand new collection (this being the first time the Cupid dress has ever been shot since being released!). when accessorised with Charlotte Mills Shoes and Botias veil, Halo & Co’s statement handmade jewelled headpieces, and Temprell Jewellers bespoke diamonds, we gave our bride a look of showstopping glamour! This was all brought together by Ruby J Beauty’s dewy and dramatic makeup (it was a real treat to have her on board for on her first working day since lockdown!) along with the renowned Alison Jenner’s hairstyling.


Our colour pallet was predominantly cream, amber and champagne and was brought to life by Gigil & Bloom’s florals. A hint of mulberry detail deepened the texture with the thoughtful bespoke stationery by Dove & Lace. It felt really important to use a colour scheme that brides could easily transfer through the seasons with the threat of postponement still looming. Flowers are such an important element to any of our style concepts and there is always room for an abundance of blooms.


As we are all about underpinning sublime style and meticulous organisation, with industry-leading entertainment, exceptional catering, and innovative ideas, this editorial was no different. Victoria Gray a mezzo-soprano formally part of the operatic quartet Amore serenaded our couple whilst sipping on their signature cocktail at reception drinks in Hodsock Priory’s ‘Ante Room’.


During this shoot I pictured my couple relishing in their elegant celebration at Hodsock, exchanging vows in front of the lake surrounded by 30 of their closest friends and family, then roaming the beautiful gardens before enjoying an intimate candlelit meal.
