A Styled Shoot at Westenhanger Castle

So – lets take you back to October last year, I’m sitting in my office feeling uninspired and ready to change that. I’m lucky enough to work with some seriously lovely wedding suppliers and I’m pleased that we all have the same idea when it comes to how you should plan your wedding – however you blinking like! So when we all decided we could spare the time and that we knew we would totally rock a styled shoot, we got a date in the diary!

Fast forward to 15th October and getting together to pull off an epic styled wedding shoot – at Westenhanger Castle. Helen, our bride, has the most stunning blue hair, which fitted in with our colourful and carefree style – Sharon from Adornare (https://www.adornare.co.uk) immediately started bringing out Helen’s natural beauty with a stylish make up look. Joanna from Hair by Josephines (http://www.hairbyjosephines.co.uk) twisted Helen’s blue locks into a badass ‘do.

Jeska from The Bridal Boutique of Jules (https://www.boutiqueofjules.co.uk) not only brought along a couple of the most stunning dresses I have ever seen in my life, but she also brought some stylish accessories too. There’s nothing I like more that delicate lace and a biker’s jacket combo!!

We were privileged to have an awesome Mustang come along for some shots from Quadriga Car’s. I knew Shaun would deliver something awesome because he doesn’t deal with normal wedding cars (http://quadrigaweddingcars.co.uk) we wanted something plucked out of the extraordinary to sit outside of the castle for a perfect photo opportunity.

We had the pleasure of some feathered friends joining us for a few moments. An owl, an eagle and a hooded vulture to be more specific, and I won’t lie, they kinda stole the show! Amazing what you can do when you have bunch of awesome suppliers who help people achieve their dream wedding!
