From Emma, the photographer:
We wanted to create an inspirational shoot for the modern elegant bride, to show that beautiful can still be very natural and uncomplicated. Our French Blue editorial was inspired by the understated glamour of France. Inspired by the color palette of french chateaus, we chose a blend of neutrals and soft french blues to create this shoot. Photographed with the exquisite backdrop of Dorfold Hall in Cheshire, we told the story of a bride getting ready on her wedding day, with quiet moments of contemplation amid a soft and feminine atmosphere.
With our stylist, we crafted the shoot from a selection of handpicked vendors who suited the fine art brief perfectly: from the delicate hand calligraphed stationery, to the neutral hand grown neutrals, and the wonderful cake in shades of blue and white. The elegant dress was the perfect fit for this shoot. It was the right amount of glamour, while still being understated and modern. We paired it with some beautiful accessories to create these high end looks. The make-up created a fresh & glowing look with the use of natural products. The perfect finish were the relaxed hairstyles created to compliment the dress and jewelry.
