A styled shoot in the English countryside with a color palette of muted pastels, blush, jade and sage — I’d say it’s pretty difficult to top that. Wedding Belles, Louise Beukes of b.loved, and The Rose Shed put their talented minds together to bring about this stylish inspiration session, and we can’t quite keep ourselves from falling deeply in love with the lush greenery and romantic wedding gowns by Chaviano Couture.
From the stylist, Louise Beukes of b.loved: The shoot was inspired by the romance of the English countryside; long hazy summer days and romantic day dreams. Barnsley House, set in the beautiful Cotswolds countryside, provided the perfect backdrop with the gardens in full bloom setting off the soft colour palette of muted pastels, blush, jade and sage. Gowns by Chaviano Couture, one with miles of tulle and the other an elegant lace design, added yet more romance. Handmade accessories from Victoria Fergusson Accessories worn in loose, elegant hairstyles sparkled gently in the summer sunshine. The Rose Shed created two loose, trailing bouquets with long ribbons which billowed beautifully in the breeze.
An informal table was set in in the shade of a tree and given a touch of glamour with a shimmering crystal chandelier and contemporary Ghost chairs. Country-style place settings, floral print runners and lace edge napkins all add to the classic English garden feel. We used elegant floral displays of seasonal summer flowers, including hydrangea, roses, astilbe and trailing green foliage in rustic stone urns. The dessert table displays an array of cakes by Marie Green, nestled in between foliage and flowers, with buttercream and dripping caramel all adding to the informal, rustic feel.
