“Everybody was feeling happy now.
The sun was shining brightly out of a soft blue sky
and the day was calm”.
Roald Dahl, James and the Giant Peach

“I dreamt up the inspiration for this shoot whilst listening to my daughter Abby read and enjoy the book “James and the Giant Peach” by Roald Dahl. The beautiful illustrations of this extraordinary book serve as the perfect reference source for our shoot. Whilst the story is quite dark, the inspiration from the illustrations are gorgeous and utterly unique.

The aim of this shoot is to teach Brides and Grooms to use personal experiences, likes and loves in they’re wedding styling. To choose something different and personal and adapt it into a wedding providing an insight into something they love. Serving to connect their guests to their special day, all too often it seems these days to be about being bigger and better rather than emotional connection.

Beautiful peach colouring and gentle soft green’s with a distinct powder affect to them organically style this elegant and beautiful rural traditional inn. From the fireplaces to the graceful bedroom, to the fantastic intimate Hound Room. Adorning the venue and garden, with stunning bridal feminine styling.

Chloe, our ethereal bride will wear a chic modern dress with a dreamy lightweight skirt with a fabulous sexy slit by the incredible Rosa Clara. We have Michelle and Frances creating elegant yet modern hair and makeup. Adapting the Chanel modern bun, and the latest Marchesa floral hair catwalk styling to complete the look.

My aim is to take cues from the whimsical and beautiful illustrations I have included below. Create modern and elegant floral and prop combinations, to inspire the more adventurous Hampshire couple”.

We wanted our wedding to have some element of connection to a part of our lives. We also wanted a venue which would be unusual and memorable for our guests. That’s when Boon started thinking about the possibility of having it at Winchester College, where he spent many happy years at school.

Considering others and ourselves

Considering others and ourselves

I recently read a gorgeous blog post about the impact we have on the people and world around us. How our deeds, words and responses not only impact ourselves and our mental wellbeing. But how they impact others, their place in the world and their state of mind.
