Thyme Barn Cotswolds ~ Blue wedding dress inspiration

This is a shoot that the lovely Katie Julia organised and asked me to come along for at the beautiful Thyme Barn in the Cotwolds featuring this gorgeous blue dress.

Ever wondered why brides (in western cultures) wear white on their wedding day? Well apparently, you can blame Queen Victoria for the white wedding dress. She wore plain white to marry Prince Albert in 1840, and sparked a trend that’s lasted to this day — but, surprisingly, she didn’t wear it to symbolize purity or virginity. She just wore it because, well, she liked white.  I love the blue dress by Belle and Bunty and often wonder if I’d be brave enough to wear colour on my wedding day.  The shoot was perfectly styled by Jessie Thomson and hair and make up done by the talented Heidi Sykes.

Villa Parma Daylesford ~ Boho Luxe Wedding Shoot

Kytography Harper and Co Boholuxe Styled Shoot-0110

I was back in Melbourne late last year to shoot a wedding (see previous post), when I was also asked by the lovely wedding stylist Nadalie from Harper and Co if I would collaborate with her on a styled shoot. I must admit, apart from finding our models, I had little to do with the planning of this shoot and Nadalie did such an amazing job putting together the shoot.  I arrived to the quaint and beautiful Villa Parma in Daylesford just outside of Melbourne feeling as if I had just stepped into a little Tuscan villa.  What a gem of a venue to shoot at!  The wisteria was in full bloom and only complimented the colours of the florals that the wonderful florist at Flowerjar had provided us as well as the stationery designed by the talented Jiny from Something Peach.  Thank you to Grace Loves Lace for providing the beautiful ‘Manon’ dress you see here on Laura.  Last but not least, thank you to Laura and Andy, a real couple, for being such superb models for us on the day!

This shoot was also recently featured on the wonderful White Magazine blog!
