Cheshire feature

It’s not often we receive submissions from across the Atlantic, but today’s stunning shoot was the dream of The Bridal Lounge, one of our lovely UK stockists! Sara, from The Bridal Lounge, described the inspiration: "We wanted to create some inspirational content that reflected the styles of gowns that we offer but setting them with a different backdrop. Nothing is more beautiful than a glowing bride in a stunning gown with an intense sunset and clever use of light. Inspired by Australian and Midwestern weddings, I set about a mood board and finding those important people to work with. Finding the right photographer was the most important element — someone who ‘gets' the vibe you are looking to achieve and Emmy from Vanitas Life came highly recommended."

Photographer Emmy went on to describe the shoot itself: "The aim of the shoot was to capture the dresses in the glorious sun light highlighting everything about the bride. Due to the current climate, all my destination weddings had been postponed and I'd lost the opportunity to photograph my beautiful brides in the warm tones of the setting sun. For myself, I wanted to challenge myself to create an aesthetic similar to Australian or Mediterranean weddings.
"The dresses are so intricate with layers of soft fabric and exquisite detailing, I was conscious to highlight these elements and to have fun with the textures and fabrics. The dresses are a mix between sexy and fun allowing us to create those perfect posed portraits as well as the candid images of the bride giggling with her bridesmaids and dancing in the sun.” The style team selected three of our favorite gowns, ’Samantha’ and ‘Marlowe’ from the Wilderly Bride collection, as well as this Allure Bridals gown.

"Our venue was carefully selected to offer the perfect selection of shooting locations,” Emmy continued. "Pryors Hayes is set

in the heart of the Cheshire Countryside and boasts a unique style of rustic and countryside charm set within 120 acres of tree lined fairways, lakes and gardens. It was an obvious choice, and the team there is extra helpful and accommodating.”

Gorgeous model Amber’s makeup and hair was styled by Daniella Makeup & Hair, surrounded by stunning florals by Kate of Perfect Bouquet.
