The Enchanted photo shoot took place at The Japanese Garden in Cornwall, which was the perfect setting for myself & the team to create the look & feel of an Enchanted bride.
The inspiration was taken from ideas about nature & spring, as flowers & plants begin to bloom as we enter that beautiful time of year. The Japanese garden which was created in Cornwall (England) has the beauty of natural plants perfectly balanced with the cultivation of man-made sculpture; allowing for this idea of bridal perfection to be something that is natural & yet created. The dress, which was a Claire Pettibone design, was selected to fit the model (Jennifer Faulks) who had the ideal figure to compliment the earthy, bohemian design. The headwear was also selected to compliment the theme, but we felt that a dramatic piece was suitable & Jennifer rocked it!
The jewellery was hand made by Tegen Jewellery who specialises in bohemian, beachy style pieces, which put the finishing touches to the design & this included rings, necklaces & bangles.
Earth tones of greens and browns mixed with bright reds & oranges were used as the colour pallet for the chosen garden scenes; we even caught a couple of Koi fish swimming by at one point & they happened to be the right colours!
The light changed through out the shoot; one minute the morning sunshine was beaming; creating fierce shadows and highlights, & the next the light clouds rolled over; allowing for a softer, even coverage. The results have allowed for a mixture of imagery & I love this variety!
The team were incredible & the shoot could not have been accomplished without such a skilled group.
