I don’t know how I’ve managed to keep this quiet for so long, but I’m super excited to now announce that my August photoshoot has been published in Conde Nast Brides this month (yippee).

Inspiration behind the shoot was moving away from vintage (finally) and showing how you really can have a beautiful garden wedding that is just as sophisticated as it would be inside.

Using one of Pantone’s colours of 2013, grayed jade along with ivory and gold I set about finding a UK space that would offer the sophisticated rivera look that I was after. Painshill Park which is based in Surrey, England fitted the bill perfectly.

With my main focus on the beauty of the outdoors I really wanted to use the succulent plant that you can find outdoors as my main floral theme, and this was included and handmade on the gorgeous cake and mini cakes. Whilst the colour grayed jade was the focus for the dessert bar instead of just sweets.
