“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”
… “It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
This was our first styled shoot!! As you can imagine we were beyond ourselves with excitement when scouting out the location. We immediately fell in love with Castle Archdales grounds, and it became our inspiration. Gates hidden behind brambles, overgrown paths and roses twisted around gazebos.
When visualising these settings we pictured timid wild animals, berries, furniture carted from the manor house and secrets behind every wild bush. The famous secret garden movie, our garden sheds and future wedding trends helped lead us as we brain stormed, sketched and created mood boards.
We are excited that wedding styling is moving towards sophisticated glamour, to who the bride and groom are and what their loves are. After all their wedding day is all about them.
