I have literally been bursting at the seams to share Hannah Gooch and Sarah Gawler's first bridal inspiration shoot with you.
Pale and Interesting - The Venue, a New England-style barn in the beautiful Kent countryside, was the setting for their first shoot. Only 10 minutes from the beach, this beautiful private home is owned by stylist Atlanta Bartlet and husband Dave Coote. For those of you looking to for a stylish blank canvas as your wedding venue, you really can't get much better than this.*
Hannah says "The lovely Sarah Gawler and I got our heads together back in March and had a great time selecting gowns from Blackburn Bridal Couture for our three bridal looks. The first is a soft, boho style with a fabulous Claire Pettibone gown. I love Bethany's lose plait and her floral headband. Lindsay from LK Lily created a loose and rustic bouquet featuring roses, sweet pea and trailing jasmine and used the same flowers to create her floral headdress.
Sarah Treble's unique and elegant gown needs little more than a few peonies in the hair as the feathers are really the feature of this look. Accessorising with a beautiful tight bunch of white peonies works perfectly.
And finally, a simple gold jewelled headband and a little bunch of Lily of the Valley perfectly compliments Clinton Lotter's breathtaking feather gown, with its gold belt.
We used a simple linen tablecloth with lots of glass candlesticks, votives and tealight holders to create the table setting. A large vase of white and green flowers coordinate perfectly with the pale grey pie-crust plates and the gorgeous ceramic pears and zinc place name tags.
An enormous thank you to everyone who contributed and took part in our shoot. The endlessly talented Sarah Gawler, who's photography I adore; Lindsey from LK Lily who's knowledge of flowers and creativity amazes me, Louisa Grey for her truly inspirational styling, Daniel Palmer who is a wizard with make-up and hair and of course our beautiful model, Bethany.
We have also had some amazing and generous contributions from the lovely Russell from Blackburn Bridal Couture, Rowen and Wren, Zoe Clark Cakes, Pale and Interesting, Flo and Percy, Love by Susie, Alex Monroe, Carys Boyle and Ann Guise. Thank you all so much, we couldn't have done it without you!"
