I love doing bridal shoots with other wedding suppliers and this scrumptious Peach Bridal Shoot was a such a pleasure to shoot! Gaby from SouthBound Bride and I came up with the concept & ideas for the shoot together and Gaynes Park in Epping, Essex couldn’t have been a more perfect setting. With the Gather Barn, plenty of fields and the gorgeous walled garden, we were spoilt for choice when it came to our different looks!
With the help of a bunch of very talented wedding suppliers, we created a peach & watercolour smorgasbord of bridal inspiration for any bride looking to infuse her wedding day with soft, peachy tones and decadent peach details. Our wedding table was set in a field, with our bride (Katja) and her two bridesmaids (Rose and Leila) from MOT Models making the most of the rustic setting. Jodie from Boutique Blooms created a beautiful ombre floral center piece for the table which complemented the soft pink glassware, DIY watercolour napkins and peaches in brown paper pockets perfectly. With three different wedding gowns from Blackburn Bridal, our bride Katja showcased three different looks – all in keeping with the peach & ombre theme. My favourite was the Boho wedding gown by Claire Pettibone with THAT veil! Our very talented hair & make up artist Lara worked her magic and our bridal party looked gorgeous!
Our bridesmaids – Leila & Rose looked stunning in their peach & pink bridesmaids dresses from Maids to Measure and the flower crowns in their hair kept their looks rustic & playful with a touch of boho. I loved the bespoke handkerchiefs from Benign Objects – a perfect bridesmaid gift!
Our dessert table showcased a yummy naked cake from French Made decorated with cute cake bunting and marzipan peaches as well as peachy macarons from Anges de Sucre. Hanging sugar biscuits created a really sweet background for our bride, looking stunning in her third and last gown – a lace overlay creation by Sarah Janks.
Below is a small selection of my favourites from the shoot.
