Woodland Wedding Inspiration
We recently hosted a styled shoot at Stratton Court Barn with our wonderful recommended suppliers. The official images are currently circulating on social media and have been picked up by a couple of wedding blogs; so on our own page I thought it could be fun to share some inside secrets and behind-the-scene images.
Winnie is Cathy's horse (owner of Stratton Court Barn) and was volunteered for this due to her impeccable behaviour and level head. Sitting on a horse without a hat is not normally recommended. But even Winnie, the kindest and safest of horses, drew the line at having a fluttering veil over her back!
We were not attempting side-saddle riding! A leg was planted firmly on each side of Winnie...
The kindest horse, patiently waiting by the bluebells. The awesome Sarah Yeo kept us all entertained, while also (needlessly) touching up her flawless hair and make-up.
It's really hard to put a quiet, sophisticated face on when you're working with really funny people and great friends!
Ok, so I'm blaming the flat-out-laughter on Dan Rayner (photographer) by the way. He makes any bride feel at ease, resulting in grins like this! And Winnie was now back in her stable, so the veil could be put on...
Ever heard of barefoot shoes? We got our hands on a handmade pair. They're really, really cool. I can put you in touch with a supplier if you're interested.
Earlier last year, I stumbled across the fact the the administrator in the Pool Farm (Stratton Court Barn) office, does stationery and other graphic design creations as a sideline. Needless to say, Warren Day's work now features heavily at the barn! He takes on pieces by commission - just contact us for more information!
Because this is what sparked the theme to this shoot... beautifully illustrated by Warren.
Hop on over to our Part 2 to see the rest of our behind-the-scenes images!
