Emma Hall Photography achieved this shoot with a host of Kent-based wedding suppliers. She says: "When you find a venue like The Beacon Tunbridge Wells, everything falls into place. It's full of character and charm and set in lush grounds with breathtaking views over Happy Valley."
The shoot was styled with cosy corners, stylish snugs and a vintage pavilion, the ideal place for feasting and fun. The endless gardens were bathed in bright late spring sunshine on the day of the shoot, which was inspired by the magic of the turning of the season and whimsical wedding vibes.
Emma Hall brought a strong feeling for concept and end vision with a romantic relaxed style to the shoot, capturing everything in a way that felt natural yet striking. While Matthew Handley Films captured emotion and intimate moments, alongside special standout moments with a quiet passion and assured ability.
The springtime brides were sassy and glamorous, styled by The Pantiles Bride to look timeless but with a distinctive and modern edge. Classic shapes were teamed with fun accessories, and the dresses stood out with unusual hues and embellishments. Hair and make-up looks by Billie Pingault reflected this, with a neutral colour palette paired with more playful brights and relaxed hairstyling for the eclectic bridal models.
The venue was dressed by Harriet's Table, Motherlove Venues and The Little Wedding Warehouse. Unique seating areas were placed in the grounds, with sumptuous velvet, gold and wicker textures contrasting against the countryside greens.
Inside the fairytale pavilion, tables were dressed with rustic yet fresh details; finished with stationery and calligraphy by Kilkie Sands in rose gold tones, completing the bohemian romantic design. The flowers truly oozed the essence of bespoke luxury. Cabbage White Flowers displayed a specialism for seasonality with the trailing bouquets in warm colourways set off with foliage.
The cake by All Shapes & Slices Cake Co stood out in its colourful simplicity, a feature in itself.
