If you enjoyed the Autumn cover shoot in our latest issue, here are even more photos from behind the scenes. Our shoot took place at Kingswood School – the perfect venue to combine the elegance of beautiful architecture with varying grounds to provide a more casual photoshoot backdrop.
Kirsten Butler of The Little Wedding Helper, and West Weddings’ Photoshoot Art Director, did a smashing job putting together this glorious autumnal shoot in the middle of a scorching July!
The credit for these behind-the-scenes photos goes to Eleanor Saunders at Interlace Photography.
Rachel has her bridal make up done by Tracey Curnock, a freelance make up artist from Wiltshire. The minimal look really suited Rachel’s natural glow.
The dresses and accessories were provided by Solitaire Brides and Bridezillas, respectively. This dress is my personal favourite – style 1901, by Phil Collins.
Zara and Harriet from David Maxwell Hairdressing give the adorable Ella – our flower girl – the glamour treatment before her time in the spotlight.
What a natural! Posing in a dress from Bride at Home in Downend.
A stunning arrangement from The Flower House.
…paired with an equally dashing boutonnière on Oliver – our groom.
The gorgeous burgundy 1928 American Studebaker Dictator was supplied by Kens Kars.
The pops of red in this look alone are probably enough reason to have an Autumn wedding.
Oliver’s dashing ensemble came from Slaters in Cheltenham. The cravat was my personal favourite.
The surroundings of Kingswood School make for a huge variety of photo ops – which we took advantage of completely throughout the shoot!
More from Ella – styling by her very proud mum Kirsten
Fiona Hardy of Cupcake Delight provided both the cake and these Autumnal cupcakes – we had to make sure they were featured as well.
