Wintery wedding Inspiration in Lincolnshire
Hi Im Gillian from Bridal Reloved Caistor and earlier this year I did my very first first photo shoot on a very chilly, winters day in February. it was a magical day with a biting wind but everyone was amazing and came together to make the day success.
A lot of work went into the behind the scenes stuff to get this off the ground and I am eternally grateful to the team who took my ideas and turned them into reality.
Danielle Humphreys from a Pheasantry Brewery offered the venue, a working brewery and wedding venue that is both beautiful & a little different with fabulous grounds and beautiful rooms indoors. We would not have got through the day without Danielle keeping us supplied with tea & coffee and a hot lunch of homemade pie & mash, just scrummy & there was none left.
Natalie George The Makeover Fairy did a fantastic job with our three lovely models, all different looks to reflect the different dresses, Nat worked tirelessly on hair & make up during the day and the models looked stunning in their wedding dresses.
Photography by Janey Kay Photography told a story with each dress (and we had six) they all went on a journey to create a vision where brides to be could see themselves on their wedding days.
Tiara’s and hairpieces were provided by Debbie Suddaby Chequers Boutique with each dress complemented by different stunning accessories. Debbie also brought her fake grass along, and her fabulous fluffing and primping kept us smiling all day long.
Additional hair accessories came through Katy Moxon Evie Rose Bridal Vines & Hair Accessories with a beautiful floral piece that truly complemented our gorgeous Justin Alexander lace dress in the garden, with the snowdrops.
Flowers for the day came through Michelle Roworth at Rosedale House Floral Designs who created a beautiful natural hand tie bouquet a little bit boho and included pheasant feathers to tie in with the venue, simply marvellous.
And the models, Gilly Chetwynd, Helen Heseltine and Becka Coney all volunteers, all beautiful and all natural ladies who otherwise go about their everyday lives but who gave up more than a day to showcase our gorgeous dresses and bring them to life.
Dresses and veils of course came from the boutique in Caistor, 6 dresses in all with veils from Richard Designs to complete their look. The ladies enjoyed their day out in such a stunning venue and surrounded by an amazing group of small business folks whom I am now lucky to count as friends.
