As a photographer I work on a variety of different themed shoots. However, there are always some shoots that stick out in my mind. One perfect example of this was a Boho Coral, Gold wedding shoot that took place at Shottle Hall, Derbyshire. There are a number of reasons why this shoot will stay with me and why it has become one of my favourite ones to organize and work on.
There is a wealth of beautiful venues up and down the country, and I am lucky, in the most part to be able to see plenty of these during my time working as a photographer. One thing that I know is incredibly important to couples is to get amazing photographs to keep and treasure from their special day. However, they may worry that they are going to be struck down with bad weather which may ruin their plans.
One of the best things about Shottle Hall is that not only there are some amazing outdoor locations where photos can be taken, but also, if the weather isn’t as kind as you hoped, there are plenty of stunning places to take photos indoors too.
When it comes to putting together a wedding photoshoot, one of the most important aspects has to be the suppliers. Suppliers are those who make a wedding photo shoot (and often help to bring a couple’s dreams to life when it comes to their wedding). I was so lucky to be able to bring together such talented suppliers.
It was fascinating to see how these amazing suppliers brought a fantastic array of ideas to life. I saw new ways to use balloons, silk ribbons and even wedding biscuits too. Which just goes to show how inspirational it can be from watching others.
The idea behind this Boho gold coral wedding shoot theme was, what I like to call, Coralation Boho. Coral, golds and greys mixed with the rustic charm that only Boho style can bring. It really was such a pleasure to capture images of the models in these styles.
During Lucy and Alex’s pre-wedding shoot we took many beautiful pictures and were really looking forward to photographing their wedding day. And this moment has finally come…
Lucy and Alex’s wedding day had a fantastic warm and friendly atmosphere. The wedding took place in Aldermaston Manor, the venue with beautiful grounds and magnificent house with absolutely amazing exterior and interior. The day was well planned and thanks to Lucy and Alex we had many opportunities to take beautiful pictures of themselves and with their friends and family.
The bride’s dress was gorgeous as you will see on the photographs. The Coral theme of the wedding day was reflected in every detail of the wedding: flowers, decorations, bridesmaids dresses. There was great support from both families in preparation for the wedding day.
Here are some pictures from this wonderful day that reflect the atmosphere and tell you more about the wedding.
Following Claire and Rob’s pre-wedding shoot back in November last year, it was pleasure to photograph their Wedding Day in April.
For the ceremony, Claire and Rob chose beautiful St Matthews Church of Boughton; the rest of the wedding day was held at stylish Hotel Van Dyk near by Clowne. Every detail of the wedding day was unique: Rob’s cufflinks and watches, Claire’s dress was stunning, as well as coral dresses of the bridesmaids. Claire’s make-up and hair style were just perfect. An elegant and luxurious Rolls-Royce car also added to the great atmosphere of the wedding day.
Thanks to the weather, few showers with sunny spells, the nature was full of dramatic colours that were captured at Claire and Rob’s pictures. With specially prepared umbrellas, few showers did not ruin the wedding day and the atmosphere during the whole day was just amazing.
Here are some pictures from Claire and Rob’s wedding day. Wedding suppliers details are at the end of the post.
