This moody elopement at Shotton Grange is proof that sometimes all you really need is each other and a picturesque venue. The addition of smoke bombs, bridal capes, burgundy suits and flowers are a great way to add personality, fun and drama to your intimate wedding, making your portraits pop. We love it! 


We had the whole grounds to ourselves and we were able to utilise so much space and it really gave the couple a chance to relax into the photoshoot and gave us the chance to capture some candid and beautiful images. We had smoke bombs for some of the couple's portraits on the grounds. This really brought out the playful side of our couple and we captured some really organic and fun images.

Real couple Chisanga and Glory brought all the love and good vibes to this moody elopement inspiration at Shotton Grange. With both of them looking absolutely incredible in a burgundy tuxedo and bridal capes from Bex Bridal. The Wild Love Club focuses on the couple's connection and uses smoke bombs to add a little fun to the portraits.

Inspiration & Styling

Bex Brides was our dressmaker for this shoot and she focuses on affordability and recycling which is very apt in these pared-back times. Our flower supplier was Floral Grace who is also a seasonal florist who creates wild beautiful arrangements for all occasions. Shotton Grange is a beautiful venue set in gorgeous woodlands.
