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:

Today it’s the final two bridal looks from the photoshoot at Heaton House Farm, if you missed yesterday’s with the very cute calves you can view it here, and the introduction to the photoshoot.  Despite the overcast weather on the day of shooting back in April, it provided a stunning backdrop when we headed out to shoot with Tootsie the horse beside the big oak tree.

Thankfully, our lovely model for the day Lizzie was a horse rider making for a much easier shoot, and Tootsie the horse was so well behaved.  I’ve heard from Sarah Heath that Tootsie did her first Asian wedding  at Heaton House Farm and was a star, in spite of the drums and dancing!

Following on from yesterday’s introduction to the fabulous photoshoot at Heaton House Farm that I got to be involved with, today I’m sharing the first of the two bridal looks that we created.  A team of wonderful wedding suppliers came together to put these looks together and you’ll find all their details at the bottom of the page.

Today’s bridal looks are accessorised with cute calves and a stonking great big tractor…

This was probably my favourite look of the day, a gorgeous vintage-esque wedding dress with gorgeous lace bodice and cinched-in sash around the waist, red sparkly shoes and blanket covered hay bales.
