Back in October we were involved in a stunning autumnal woodland luxe shoot in the heart of Dorset. The truly lovely Knighton House offered the fantastic backdrop amid beautiful scenery. Coupled with Carla and Owen from Coastal tents as well as their lovely tipis and sailcloth tents, we were set.
Thursday morning Sarah and I arrived on site ready for a especially full day, prior to Fridays shoot. The incredibly talented Em from Martha & the Meadow was straightaway located amongst the largest pile of blooms and foliage. Excitedly we went in search of the Minna dresses together with the Love Art, Wear Art shoes which we hadn’t yet seen in the flesh. We were not disappointed!! Without delay we discovered the beautiful silk ribbons and runner from Kate Cullen, we could not wait to use this stunner of a runner! Ahhh and Gemma Milly’s stationery was just perfect, we loved Gemma’s work so much that Sarah and I booked ourselves onto her calligraphy course in January.
A busy day was had by all among the Dorset countryside. We loved coming together with Em from Martha and the Meadow in addition with Lucy from Forget-me-not Vintage Hire to create the main statement tablescape. With many other areas for the shoot to prepare, it was very soon the evening and we got ourselves home ready for the next day, despite being exhausted we were definitely excited for the next day.
Friday morning came and we had the gorgeous Nadia Achha from Big Mustard Modelling Agency arrive. The lovely Fiona Lucy Clark was on hand to create three stunning looks for Nadia throughout the day. Darima Frampton was particularly amazing, capturing such wonderful images. Then Emma from Fancie Buns arrived with the most amazing array of statement cakes, including minis and delicious looking chocolates to create a simply stunning sweet table. This was styled with some gorgeous gold candlesticks, plum candles, Kate Cullen’s silk ribbons and some beautiful blooms from Em.
The shoot was an absolute dream. We are totally in love with Darima’s images, for us it was an honour to be involved with such significantly talented suppliers. Here is a list of the lovely people involved.
