This shoot is one of our favourites, featuring our Matilda dress. It was a sunny but very windy day in June and the light was incredible . The lavender fields are only in bloom for a short while at Inglenook Farm, before the flowers are harvested for essential oils. We used the infusing room to get ready in and honestly the scent from the oils was so intense, we were all slightly floaty and chilled during the shoot. I slept so soundly that night.
The inspiration for the shoot initially was that we’d seen the lavender field having driven past and the farm kindly said we could do a shoot. The time slot was quite limited as the fields were due for harvest. We knew that we really wanted to catch some golden hour light if we could. After a week of rain we were really lucky as the day we reached the fields, the sun came out! We wanted to create a fine art luxe wedding feel, very romantic with lots of detailing.
Our model is beautiful Stacey Mellin and these lovely images are by Lucy G Photography. Flowers by Living Colour Floral Design, hair and make by Harry Jon, stationery by Hattie Boo Designs and cakes by Time for Sweetpea.
The shoot features our Matilda dress, a beautiful backless design, with long lace sleeves and a floating chiffon silk skirt that just moved and flowed so beautifully in the breeze through the lavender.
