… This shoot of rustic, bohemian and natural wedding inspiration was born on the benches of the river Thames where the air is fresh, herbs are splendid and the river is creating a soft glow around all objects by beautifully reflecting and diffusing sunlight.
Our idea was to create a unique blend of natural elements like moss, leaves and flowers with lightweight naked Victoria sponges, innocent beauty of a young bride, kids and all shades of the rich foliage of English gardens.
We set up a tea table for two under a tree by the river on a vintage tablecloth (family heirloom of Katja Berg) , using some beautiful china and cakes, all generously decorated by fruits and flowers, and a big moss tree – a signature decoration detail by our florist Katja.
A retro bike, an umbrella and a pair of wellies in retro yellow colour added to the whole mise-en-scène the character of the English countryside and the refreshing feel of the weather outside.
Our model wore rich flower crown and a loose matching bouquet all in warm pale palette. Flower style and inspiration is by Katja from Bergdorf’s, she is a very talented Danish florist with a distinctive chic rustic style.We used vintage tablecloths, vases and china, vintage veils, handmade designer hair accessories, and the garden of a famous London boutique hotel.

Everything about this shoot captured by Victoria Phipps and styled by Sarah Garrod is my dream. The Justin Alexander gown, the stunning florals from Emma Fawcett-Eustace, the elegant stationery from the Project Pretty - it’s all so perfectly elegant and timeless I could cry. So it goes without saying I’ll be spending a large amount of time today devouring each gorgeous image sitting in this gallery.

…The theme was ‘early 20th century english glamour’ and we tried to create a bit of a story around two strangers coming together in marriage. The models had never met before, so they appreciated the irony!
We shot at Iscoyd Park, which is a beautiful and intimate grade II listed country house in Shropshire, England. One of the main reasons we chose this location was because of the elegant reception rooms and finely decorated bedrooms, all with tall georgian windows giving an abundance of natural light. The perfect setting for an intimate wedding. The grounds of Iscoyd Park are delightful and fortunately the light was perfect!
We dressed a long slim table in the main reception room with a trio of tall floral centrepieces. The bright pink roses and red winter berries were coupled with wintry foliage resulting in a pleasing mix of warm and cool tones. The fabulous black and white wedding stationery was designed by Project Pretty.
We created two different looks for the bride, with two beautiful Justin Alexander dresses and different headpieces & hairstyles. The groom wore classic black tie.

“Epitomizes English glamour and elegance” is guaranteed to pull me in every single time, and this time, I was floored. Blown away by the beauty that is this wedding from Anushe Low. The shoes, the gown, that warm, beautiful light, it’s like someone bottled up my dreams and gave me the best present ever… in the form of a highlight film from reellovefilms!
From Reellovefilms… Well, what a wedding this was! Wall to wall beautiful… Susie and Stuart were married at the elegant and lovely Brocket Hall, UK, and it was clear right from the start that they had made a huge effort on their wedding….it looked completely amazing. Everything from the flowers by Jamie Aston, Susie’s Jenny Packham dress and Jimmy Choo shoes and Stuarts dapper Stuart Lamprell suit had been chosen to compliment the elegant, timeless and beautiful surroundings…it really was a good looking day! Brocket Hall epitomises English glamour and elegance; frescos on the ceilings, gilded details, lawns and lakes…serene.
Susie had an amazing team getting her get ready, not that she needs much help…with Severin Hubert on hair and Sarah Brock on make up, and what a job they did. Lots of music accompanied the day with the amazing Steve Christie on Piano and the equally amazing Matt Maurice kicking the evening party off….complete with Xylobands!
As well as this wedding just looking so beautiful, there was more to it than that…Stuart and Susie are an incredibly warm, happy, fun, caring and genuine couple, who made our job filming them so easy on the day. They were surrounded by so many people who thought the world of them and you could just feel the happiness on the day. This is what made the wedding truly a great one…we loved every minute and wish you both so much happiness in your future together xx
