Behind-the-scenes photos and film from our ‘on the farm’ bridal shoot


Behind the scenes on a bridal photoshoot

So you’ve seen all the gorgeous bridal looks from our Heaton House Farm photoshoot – and if you haven’t you can catch up on my introduction, part one and part two.  Today I wanted to share some of the behind-the-scenes pictures that Jonny Draper captured, because I thought you might like to see what goes into putting together a photoshoot.

When it’s a cold blustery day in April and you’re doing a shoot on a working farm it’s not all glamour.  There is one brave model in a wedding dress to keep warm and smiling (mind you, our model Lizzie was incredible and cheerful throughout), there are cows and calves to manoeuvre into shot (thanks to Sarah Heath!), and somehow to get a girl in a big white dress onto a horse.  It is all great fun.

Here’s the fab video of the day from Rebecca Reville Videography:
