A wisteria-filled wedding shoot in Northumberland
23 Sep 2019
Entitled 'In a Class of its Own', this wedding shoot showcases the setting and surroundings of Eshott Hall
Accompanied by Afghan hound, Wizz, the bride and groom take centre stage in this romantic wedding shoot which highlights the charm of Eshott Hall. Offering a timeless and classic quality, the wedding venue presents a wealth of spaces to host a wedding - from the striped lawns and walled kitchen gardens to the Victorian fernery and library. Here, the venue team share more details from the shoot.
Model Sarah wore ‘Heaton’, an off-the-shoulder Wtoo by Watters gown with a dainty chiffon sleeve; lingerie-lace, fitted corset bodice; and soft tulle full skirt with a sweeping train. The dress was accessoried with a full-length veil trimmed with decorative French lace.
A gold circlet entwined with lilac and pale green crystals and stones added a Grecian element with a matching jewelled ribbon belt.
Sarah’s make up-look, created by make-up artist Cydney Beasley, was strong and sultry with monochromatic shades of burgundy including a matte lip and highlighted cheekbones.
Master Debonair’s Sally Minns styled Alex in navy chinos and a heather, linen tweed blazer by Herbie Frogg with a grandad-style collared, crisp white shirt by Marc Darcey. The outfit was completed with London Brogues to complement the bridal trousseau and classic styling of the shoot.
Floristry and styling
Courtesy of Charlotte Harris, creative director of The Finishing Touch Company, who - inspired by the theme - selected wild flowers including peonies, veronica, viburnum, jasmine, cow parsley, flowering mint, astilbe, blushing bride, nigella, agapanthus and Mont rose to create a loose, hand-tied bouquet with flowing ribbons of sage velvet and lilac and silver satin. The groom’s floral buttonhole featured pheasant feather detail.
The chaise longue room scene particularly captured those halcyon summer days with the delicate white wisteria backdrop, enhanced with a vintage collection of amethyst crystals, cut glass and decorative china in hues inspired by the garden’s blooms. Sensual textures of velvet and sheepskin added to the opulence.
Hanging hoops bedecked with delphiniums, lilac limonium and other wild flowers decorated the rattan seat pod beneath the cypress tree - continuing the colour palette and symbolising eternity and lasting love.
