Our Story

Camilla Andrea Photography: Aiming to create looks which none of us had seen styled, and using colours we hadn’t had the chance to shoot at a real wedding! We chose to concentrate on a rich and luscious colour palette. We brought in elements which had an iridescent finish to it, modernising the looks. Adding in peacock colours you’d see from an oil splash and highlighting areas with plenty of rich gold! Texture was super important with fabric layered upon fabric, plenty of draped hand dyed linens and cascading lace creating a timeless romantic feel. 17th Century built Anstey Hall in Cambridge was our shoot location & it was amazing to have such a historic and beautiful labyrinth to work and style within.
