This shoot was our first huge styled shoot, with models, make-up artists and 2nd photographers – the lot….to say this was not a big deal I would be lying. When I started The Little Lending Co. I knew wanted to work on styled shoots – the kind that really get brides excited, enough to make ooooh noises but getting big and beautiful shoots together is no mean feat.

Turning up at Godwick Hall with all our props back in April to meet lots of amazingly talented suppliers that wanted to work with me was pretty surreal. I was about to style and co-ordinate a Bridal shoot. I knew I wanted to use our original pieces in the range, most of them with some kind of story or past to them, to add character and timeless decoration to this Country Manor shoot that I’d been pinning images for for weeks. Through our styled shoots I always hope to take timeless items and work on new ways of dressing tables and spaces to give a little difference and new take on an old-time piece.

Godwick Hall with it’s high georgian ceilings and eclectic decor worked so well as our setting, creating our manor born shoot with a touch of highland heritage through the use of our Antlers, Reindeer Hides, old books and brass we created a vintage inspired shoot with an edge. It was also our first play with handwritten signage on our boards too, the romantic Shakespeare quote ‘When I saw you I fell in love and you smiled because you knew’ is my favourite yet.

I’d worked with Darena at DSPhotography before and had every confidence in the magic she could create through her use of light and I’d stumbled across Donna at The Country Garden Florist and her gorgeous shop earlier in the year with the most luxurious and bespoke handwriting I knew her ideas would be perfect. There were other ladies I’d worked with like Georgina Suzanne MUA and couldn’t wait to work with again, and Laura of Bettys Beauty, Kirsty at Zanys Boutique Hair Salon, Melissa Morgan Designs and Screen the Starlet Dresses I just couldn’t wait to see them shine. It was Georgie and Adam at Sandra Reynolds Agency that really made a perfect pairing in front of the cameras that day though.

It was so special to see the shoot featured on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings blog. To see our first big collaboration shoot featured on such a well-loved blog gave me immense pride. Definitely a first year highlight. Read all about the inspiration and details behind this shoot here.

Are you inspired to have a country manor styled day, and intimate little affair with opulent details? I’m thinking vowel renewal already…

Thankyou to all the gorgeous people involved with this shoot, so very proud of you all.
