Bradbourne House Wedding inspiration: Quirky, alternative wedding

Alternative wedding country house

This shoot was the brainchild of the ever-fabulous florist and stylist, Gwenda from Fearless Florals. She envisioned an alternative take on the classic English country house wedding, and with some fabulous suppliers on board we brought it together beautifully! Here’s what Gwenda had to say:

“Red, violet, lime and nectarine were chosen for our palette. I used colourful roses, carnations, gladioli and alstroemeria to create two quite different bouquet styles, one a simple domed posy, the other a stat. Feathers were an integral park of the styling throughout the shoot, including the stunning stationery created by Kate (complete with a line drawn image of the facade of the venue) and the exceptional cakes and sweet treats by Renza and the mouth-watering fudge by Sioban.
Gemma and James respectively created exquisite bridal make-up looks and hair styles for the beautiful Lara. Completing this transformation, Karen made us a dress, two hair accessories and veil specially for the shoot, to which Marsha’s shoes added the finishing touch. Liam’s unusual purple tweed suit was kindly loaned to us by Cad & the Dandy – navy, grey or black just wouldn’t do!”
