The Venue

Two weeks ago on a cold winter’s morning we were excited to collaborate on this wedding and bridal shoot. This took place at the beautiful venue of Gunnersbury Park & Museum.
The building was originally a building owned by the Rothschilds in the 1830s. The luxurious suite in a gorgeous wedding venue is tucked away in West London. And It provided the perfect backdrop for our shoot. Our concept was a simple one of elegance and romance. So the elegant and romantic Rothschild rooms matched our vision perfectly. And their warm woodwork, stunning fireplaces and breathtaking chandeliers were just what we had envisioned.

Dresses & Jewellery

The wedding dresses were provided by Heart Aflutter in Hackney. They have an array of romantic and vintage-inspired dresses. We fell in love with the Devon dress from Tara Lauren’s 2018 collection for its timeless bridal look. And as a contrast, we also chose the more playful Tapia dress by Laudae. Our model Emily absolutely adored this dress! The hair and jewellery accessories came from our local designer Victoria Millesime. And they also complimented the elegant dresses and decor.

This was our first styled shoot (of many)! And it was so much fun to work with our team. Bev of Makeupology Brides for make-up, and Mehwish Saqib for hair. They worked together effortlessly to create Emily’s gorgeous look for her photos.

Our Model

It was also a pleasure shooting with our model Emily Wyatt because she had such a bright and breezy demeanour. And because she looked totally amazing in both dresses. Emily LOVED the Tapia dress, which comes through in the playful pictures of this gorgeous lace gown.  We consider anyone who is in such a great mood at 6am in the morning to be pretty special. And this goes for our whole team. So we’d highly recommend all of our colleagues for your early morning bridal prep.
