Styled photoshoot

Dairy House Farm Styled Shoot.

I was thrilled when Ally asked me to produce this  Dairy House Farm Styled Shoot with an outdoor boho styled wedding theme. It was to promote her wedding venue; Dairy House farm, Aller in Somerset.

Only recently Dairyhouse Farm secured a marriage licence to enable ceremonies to take place onsite. This was something I had in my mind when working on the styling concept.

So I wanted to  promote that by picking up on the current interest in alternative outdoor style ceremonies in the UK.

A Boho styled wedding theme grew !  Bridalwear designers loaned us a trouser all in one piece for the bride. We used natural textiles with references to the farm in the details of the props & styling. It was also important that we emphasised the beauty of local, British & handmade products & suppliers. So all of the products featured are British with many being produced locally to the venue’s location.

Nick, owner of the farm is a keen collector of old vintage vehicles & memorabilia. This means that the venue is terrific to photograph ! With an abundance of props & backdrops. A photographers dream!

So, the scene was set as a boho styled outdoor wedding ceremony, with the bride in a trouser suit ( & the groom in a tweed suit by Suave Owl. Our bride also wore a bespoke wide brimmed floppy hat designed by a local Somerset milliner. Her bouquet was hand crocheted by To Be Adorned who have a shop on Etsy. The bride’s ensemble was  completed with handmade wedge shoes in Peach, also by a small UK designer.

Floral arrangements included, real peaches, pampas grass, twisted willow & peach/cream blooms, metallic copper accents with dark green foliage. The Interior set design is rustic, with trestle tables, candlelight, enamelware & hessian & muslin textiles, housed within an old milking shed.

The shoot was picked up & featured by Counties Wedding Magazines & The English Wedding blog. A 3rd feature is coming soon on from Brides with Love !
