This morning we join photographer Jo Bradbury for a beautiful wedding inspiration shoot in an outdoor setting. If you are planning a vintage wedding, consider adding natural elements alongside your precious pieces to freshen the look and bring the styling up to date.
Jo says: This project was the culmination of a couple of ideas I had and carried out at my parents farm. I wanted the theme to be ‘Old English’ and so included the vintage crockery and old brooches, bone handled cutlery, old lace and vintage books. The farm has a beautiful old apple tree and because it was late Autumn, most of the apples had fallen to the ground and formed a green carpet.
This was a great opportunity to test out some ideas, you see so many beautiful and creative details when photographing weddings and so much inspiration, that its nice to take a more leisurely approach to a shoot without the usual time pressure of a wedding. A huge thank you must go to the lovely couple Tara and Adam who travelled all the way from Warwickshire for the shoot.
The flowers were by the very talented Teresa at Wild Orchid, Buxton who after listening to my ramblings came up with the perfect bouquets and buttonholes.
