Ever reminiscent of those opening credits to Sex and the City, nothing quite makes a feminine fashion statement like a tulle skirt (or tutu in Sarah Jessica Parker’s case).

So, when we clapped eyes on this beautiful Manchester styled shoot, complete with dreamy grey tulle A-line skirt, we just knew that we had to share it on the wedding blog.

Directed and captured by American-based photographer, Elina Rose, the shoot, which features a real engaged couple, is aimed at inspiring brides and grooms to use the stunning spaces around them to create beautiful photographic memories that last a lifetime.

elina says: I fell in love with England’s green parks and countryside as well as the historic beautiful buildings. I felt the combination of the two would help to create a romantic story for an engagement inspired shoot. The reason for doing the shoot was to show couples everywhere that you can utilize the places around you to create beautiful backdrops for your engagement, bridal, or wedding photos.

Our couple, being local, suggested this location based off my vision for the shoot. I wanted to incorporate gorgeous green fields and romantic sunlight as well as beautiful buildings. Heaton Park turned out to be the perfect place!

To complement the romantic feel of the session, we felt that the full tulle skirt was a perfect touch. As the outfits were quite neutral in terms of colour we wanted the gorgeous bouquet to give a pop of vibrancy. This was created by Manchester-based Venus Flowers, using blooms that would give a beautiful range of texture and colour.

For a subtle touch of sparkle, we added some stunning jewellery from Bellarissa Boutique, which completed our bride-to-be’s look perfectly.

The day of the shoot turned out perfect! While it rained most of the day, the moment we started the sun came out giving us beautiful light.
