A snowy bleak mid winter wedding inspired shoot
A few years ago on an incredible snowing January day, a little group of us braved the icy roads in Dorset to put together this beautiful wintry shoot. The shoot was featured on Love My Dress and as such for one reason or another I never got round to featuring it here, on my own blog. So here it is!
Exquisitely captured by Jennie Hill Photography, seasonal winter wedding flowers by The Flower Field, wedding pies by Tricky Treats, a Sabina Motasem wedding dress (plus a vintage one), and shot at Portesham Vineyard. All the extra bits were brought together by myself and Jennie Hill, and our bride and groom were a real couple, Jennie”s brother Nick and girlfriend Kerry.
The photoshoot team
Jennie Hill and I first met at the Eco Wedding Fair in Bristol, got chatting and soon realised we had shared ideas about creating a beautiful, natural and seasonal wedding shoot. We wanted to celebrate the bleak mid-winter English countryside in all its seasonal glory, whilst bringing together and showcasing the talents of a small team of British businesses.
Anywhere called Otter Camp and described as something out of a Swallows & Amazons novel is enough to get me interested, so when I saw this tweet on Canopy & Stars’ Twitter I headed off to investigate.
If you’re not already aware of the Canopy & Stars website – the luxury camping arm of Sawday’s – then pull up a chair with a hot drink and set aside some time to flick through pages of incredible and magical places to stay.
From Gypsy caravans in the Scottish Borders to a Cornish roundhouse, from tipis in Shropshire to a woodland cabin in the Cambrian mountains – Canopy & Stars has a long list of places to stay that are straight from your childhood imagination.
