We’re filling your Thursday afternoon full of pretty with a swoon-worthy styled shoot captured in the North East.
Shot by Andrew Sturrock, this shoot provides stunning inspiration for a bold and beautiful bridal look, including the dress, hair, makeup and bouquet, all topped off with one of the most fabulous floral crowns we’ve ever seen.
The rich berry tones could also help spark colour scheme ideas, with the romantic red, plum and pink hues lending themselves to celebrations of all seasons.
So sit back, relax and prepare to soak up the inspo as Andrew dishes the details…

andrew says: This shoot provided a great opportunity for each of the suppliers to get together and let their creative ideas flow, with a model Caitlin showcasing their talents.
As one of the top wedding venues in the North East, Matfen Hall’s grounds, gardens and views over the golf course made the perfect back drop for the shoot.
We shot close to Valentine’s Day and so decided to go with a loved-up romantic theme – hence the pink and red flowers! The stunning arrangements were created by florist Becca Angus of Charisma, based in Wallsend. She decided to go for the traditional red Rose with a pop of colour using unusual Freaky Avalanche Roses, Gloriosa and some beautiful wild foliage.
In terms of the hair and beauty for Caitlin, we wanted to stick to a fairly natural look and let the flower crown be a striking focal point and make our ‘bride’ really stand out. Jenny of Make-Up By Jenny Green took care makeup, with a bright lip to match the flowers. Meanwhile, stylist Kelly McFall of Timeless Mobile Hairdressing, created Caitlin’s tumbling down do.
On the day of the shoot everything went to plan and we were all really pleased with the results. The weather was freezing, but brave Caitlin didn’t complain once!
