Woodland castle bridal photoshoot

Woodland castle bridal photoshoot

In the middle of Candleston Woods, Wales, something magical happened. For some time I had envisaged a bridal photoshoot where the vibrant colours of summer merged with the dramatic shapes of a ruined castle as a backdrop. I hoped for breathtaking images of bridal fashion and my headpieces. When I first saw the ruined castle within these woods, I knew that I had found the perfect spot to bring this vision to life.

I set about gathering together a wonderful team of Welsh wedding suppliers all of whom are so talented. Oliver, our photographer even scaled the heights of the ruin to get the best shots. I didn’t know where he was going to pop up next!

What was achieved was an abundant table scape that included pomegranates, apples and grapes as well as sumptuous peonies. The table looked as if we had been transported to a fantasy film set and I was blown away by its beauty.

We even had Lucy, a wedding artist present, who wielded her paint brush in record time.

Our model, Harriette, already transformed into a Princess by our make up artist Amber-Lily, was imbued with an air of regality in this setting. A diaphanous veil and wonderful romantic wedding gowns were supplied by my friend Yasmine.

Alan, our florist, created nothing short of a masterclass in floristry… his work as I’m sure you will agree, is breathtaking.

As if this wasn’t enough, we also had a wedding cake decorated in the colours of this ethereal scene. Meticulously crafted by Katy.

The crystals in my bridal crowns sent shards of light that danced when the dappled light hit them. It was a very special day.
