Rustic photo shoot

Horsley Hale Farm was the perfect setting for this styled rustic photo shoot.

The team of creative collaborators for this rustic photo shoot were truly inspirational, and full of idea’s to inspire all couples.


Rustic photo shoot – We were invited to be part of this long list of experts, to provide a great dress of course! The style was rustic but winter themed too. Of course we jumped at the chance to show case one of Lara’s amazing separate dresses, and we used ‘Petal’ with the tulle tired skirt, ‘Lotti’. such a beautiful combination and perfect to create romance and an ethereal quality that was needed. Our model Lilly was a beautiful natural red head, and had the most amazing face that draws you in! We also used our male model Nick, from @tvfilmmodelworkportfoliobynick.

So the shoot was supposed to be a Spring shoot but with the ‘Beast from the East’ we saw temperatures of minus 3 degrees on the day although a beautiful blue sky and sun. So we had to create it as a Winter shoot instead. Just a beautiful day but my goodness it was cold! Poor models, especially Lilly!

The rustic inspiration using macrame details and an eclectic theme, was so stunning. Down to earth and free spirited, with a bell tent and lamas too.

Noemi who captured the day was a delight to work with and was a lovely lady, who was calm and compassionate. If you want a creative eye to capture your special day, then contact her to see if she’s free! Highly recommend her.

The extra details, always add interest and personality into all wedding, so add yours to make your day more memorable!

Over all I think you will all agree this shoot was stunning. Can’t wait to work with this team again and bring more magical idea’s to our readers.
