A ballet inspired shoot in East Sussex
06 Aug 2020
Photographer Sarah Rook shares the inspiration behind Ophelia - a ballet themed wedding shoot focusing on the grace and poise of a dancer
This ballet inspired wedding shoot takes inspiration from the grace and poise of a dancer. Just like the name, Ophelia’s personalities are full of expression and emotions.
Our ballerina effortlessly floated en pointe across the wooden floors of the most stunning of venues in East Sussex, Brickwall House. This gave us a perfect opportunity to explore bridal creativity within an impressive Grade I listed manor house with its 17th century interiors and stunning gardens, a beautiful backdrop that welcomes couples for exclusive use as a luxury wedding venue.
In the spotlight was a JLM couture dress by a favourite designer Hayley Paige, her designs are a unique-chic fully embracing the creative process with heaps of freshness and a dash of sass.
Décor and styling was in keeping with the theme and blended with the antiques perfectly, using both authentic and handmade pieces with cut glass and pale blue candles. Letter writing and romance go hand-in-hand so a speciality hand-illustrated typography design on seeded plantable paper complemented the setting, topped with floral decadent arrangements and blousy roses adorning the ballroom.
We hope our creative team gives you inspiration for a timeless love story
