A Victorian inspired bridal shoot at Northdown House

Photography by Rebecca Douglas

Brides looking for some stylish inspiration for their big day will just love this Victorian inspired bridal shoot.

Photographer Rebecca Douglas explains ‘The whole concept behind the shoot was to have an opportunity to collaborate with local suppliers to showcase what we do and generate some wedding inspiration.

‘The theme took a twist on the Victorian era with lots of elegance, lace and beautiful blooms. Florals in the hair were very big in that time, so we knew floral crowns would feature but were all speechless when we saw the look Jen (hair) and Emma (florist) had dreamed up.

‘The setting of Northdown House was a real treat as it is such a charming venue with lots of quirky characteristics. I love the floor in the entrance area and the grounds with woodlands, gardens and a park and pretty too.’

Have a look on our online gallery for more of these stunning pictures – we’re sure you’ll love them just as much as we do!
