Planning

I love inspiration shoots. They instantly transport you into a a dreamy wonderland and are just pure escapism and pretty. This floral fairytale concept by Kathryn Hopkins Photography and other wedding industry creatives has literally blown my mind from start to finish. From the delicate blue tulle wedding dress to the immense florals and intimate sets ups, just proves you only need a few key items to have maximum impact and make beautiful memories to treasure. Now I strongly suggest you hit do not disturb on your phone and get your pinning fingers at the ready, because you are going to want to remember ALL of this amazing-ness.

Inspiration

Kathryn the Photographer: Knowing that this bridal inspiration would be photographed in May, we wanted to create something inspired by the delicate liveliness of the countryside in England at that time. Great Lodge was a perfect location with its old brick walls and climbing roses. The ancient apple orchard, with its knobbly trees, and branches besieged with blossom. This is a place of fairy tales with magical energy at every turn. 'A Floral Fairy-tale' became our inspiration and the design brief detailed colours, textures and mood - no finished elements were included as I wanted to allow the creative team space to just create. The creative team were chosen because of their beautiful work; they are all incredibly talented individuals and bring so much to the UK wedding industry, it was such an honour to work beside them.
