Scampston Hall, North Yorkshire
I always adore shooting editorial projects and love working with some of my favourite creatives in the wedding world. I just love that there is so much beauty and talent with in our small pocket of the world here in North Yorkshire.
Elena Ferrara recently launched her new bridal range and wanted a shoot to encapsulate the soft elegant designs. It was so nice to see Elena’s gowns come to life in the beautiful shoot styled by the very talented Kim Morgan, The Gatherer. Here is is a little bit about the design concept from Kim who also created all the stunning florals.
“This corner of light is inspired by the gentle trickling of thoughts in the final quiet calming moments with oneself. The warm soft internal glow prior to immersing her being into a new life chapter. Revisiting and nurturing the times of passage held closest to her heart. Her thoughts of delicate contemplation, meandering through times o so exquisite, the precious existence of one in gentle grace and purity.
The sweet essence of her youthful being soon to blend to a different rhythm. The silent hesitation that wanders by, simmering in anticipation, in embrace. A ritual in readiness towards the pairing of souls. Tender sweet support gathers around her as she steps from the nestled thoughts of her intimate self seclusion.
The florals are embodied in a vase of antiquity years to distil the beauty of times gone by. With a palette choice of soft mellow hues that epitomises the smouldering thoughts of joyful times and a wandering loose meandering style to purvey the gentle free spirit of this moment.
The grains of time that etches away as it trickles around us is echoed in the soft smudged edges of the delicate hand crafted suite. With a delicate flow of scripture, the paper rests gently against a surface diminished of time, distilled in muted thoughts, organic in nature.”
We also had the best beauty babes on hand with Michelle, cruelty free make up artist and stunning hair design by Emily Hawkes.
