Photoshoot at Euridge Manor
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to take part in a photoshoot at arguably one of the most beautiful venues in the Cotswolds. Euridge Manor has everything you need to experience a fairy-tale wedding; scenic locations, a boathouse, castle ruins and an orangery are just a few of the indoor and outdoor spaces where you can get married.
When Danielle from LilliansLensWeddings mentioned that her and a few other photographers from around the country would be organising a photo-session, I did not think twice to join them.
The colour scheme Danielle chose for the day were all shades of burgundy, red, blush pinks and whites. Although these aren’t particularly summery colour palettes, gathered together they made a really beautiful combination.
We were lucky enough to have not just one, but two professional model couples to photograph, which gave me the opportunity to create two different types of bouquets. The first was an all-round classic look, in contrast to the second bouquet which was more asymmetrical with lots of texture. They both looked great and suited the brides’ personalities.
My second job was to collaborate with girls from NicheEvents, who had brought some gorgeous table decorations with them. We had a table setup under a beautiful portico just a few steps away from the castle ruins, overlooking the breath-taking Cotswolds countryside.
Although the setup and location were stunning, we did have a few issues due to some rather strong winds on the day. It was quite tricky to keep the small footed bowl arrangements still without any water spillage. Except for this, the photographs turned out beautiful although it does highlight that weather conditions should always be a consideration when planning an outdoor wedding.
The last job was to decorate two pillars at the boathouse. I created two large flower meadows, giving the impression of flowers wrapping around the pillars. Everything was made with the same colour palette and of course without using any floral foam – just water and chicken wire.
The whole day spent at Euridge was lots of fun, although definitely hard work, and I truly enjoyed every moment. It was also a pleasure to meet other wedding industry professionals which I hope to work again with at some point, and not to mention coming back to this beautiful wedding venue very soon….
