INSPO EDITORIAL SHOOT
'The vibe was chilled and the images were peaceful, light, cosy and full of love.'
Swancar Farm Country House is a beautiful period country house set in the rural countryside of Trowell, Nottinghamshire. They offer exclusive use of the whole venue with numerous celebration areas to choose from throughout your day. From the Oak Hall, Courtyard and Old Stables, through to the show stopper Glass Barn that we chose to set up the ceremony space.

I love to create beautiful and emotive settings that give those 'feels'. This editorial shoot was all about using a depth of textures and tonal hues, without a colour pop. I loved using our dark oak backdrop structure to match the venue’s chairs, and added lots of different materials to layer and add interest to the eye; cheesecloth, Egyptian cotton, voile and lace for a dreamy look, and carried this on with scrim chair ties and demijohns with just a few stems of soft grey pampas.
I have a love of bamboo and as my collection builds, I used just two armchairs with soft grey fur for those couple backdrop images and a cow skin rug for even more texture and depth. The top table mirrored the backdrop style with a new wooden triangle backdrop for simplicity in contrast to this with vintage brass candlesticks and detailed glass decanters.
Catherine from Inspired Foristry is just wonderful. Always ready to create something different like the delicate twig floral crown resembling the antlers throughout the venue itself. Bringing along the perfect prop for the tall floral arrangement for the archway which made it completely independent and the wonderful displays in front of the table. The bouquet mirrored the shape of the cake with a square nest made again from twigs.
Natalie from @cakes.bynatalie is queen of stencils on her cakes and she did not disappoint with a wonderful floral design. We went for a square cake for something different with a nude palette and she added some flower stems from Inspired Floristy to bring everything together. She also brought us all delicious cupcakes on the day which were delish!!
I asked Sally from I Do Invites for simple and elegantly textured stationery to match the mood board and colours and she didn't disappoint! Sally designed and created the stunning wedding stationery embellished with real pressed flowers and finished off with a real flowers with a clear wax seal, just stunning!
Sarita White Photography has an amazing flare for capturing all the little details before you have even asked her to and then some! She has a wonderful eye and creative side herself, and always inspiring and full of ideas when planning the shoot. We always get so excited together on the run up to and on the shoot itself.
I love styling shoots as it’s a brilliant way to showcase prospective couples what type of scenes and styling I can create and how it can all come together even from the smallest of ideas. I wanted to showcase a sophisticated, boho luxe editorial wedding shoot to compliment this outstanding venue and feel very privileged to have been able to work here.
Lots of love,

Sally said, 'With my support, they arrive at their wedding looking and feeling fabulous, with all their nerves and worries behind them'.

Lots of Love,
