This rustic-themed shoot was organised by Samantha from the Samantha Jones Collection | Your Wedding Hand. She tells us more about how it came together: “The moment I walked into Blithfield Lakeside Barns, I fell in love with the tranquil location, so I decided to arrange a styled shoot to inspire couples who planned to get married there. I decided on a rustic theme for this wedding barn but felt a touch of glamour would work well too. The tables and chairs were provided by Event Furniture Hire Ltd, which were then dressed in champagne satin sashes and gold centrepieces from Sorella Florist & Event Stylist, who also provided the rustic moongate backdrop.
“Our bride was dressed in the most stunning gowns from The Bridal Rooms that brought some glamour into the shoot. Each dress was adorned with lace, crystals and beads and had a statement train. The suits were provided by Kevin Paul Hirewear Specialist. I wanted a classic black tie look, so we chose a tux that brought a high-end look to the shoot. Helen Pearson Makeup Artist created a flawless look that was finished with Bridal Hair by Michelle Jewess, who made an up do with soft romantic curls. The hairpiece was created by my company, Samantha Jones Collection | Your Wedding Hand, which brought everything together.
“Of course we had to have a wedding cake too, and The Little Ingestre Bakery did not disappoint. We also had delicious traditional wood fired pizzas from the talented Bedford & Basil. I created and designed the bouquet and groom’s buttonhole with various types of eucalyptus, foliage, dried pampas and gold flecks. Becc Photography was outstanding in capturing the brief and comes highly recommended, and the models, Tamara and Elliot, were true professionals, and we all loved working with them. An extra special thanks must go to the owners of Blithfield Lakeside Barns, Alex and Lydia Brown, who have put their heart and soul into this venture and thank you so much for letting me into your world.”
