The Hale Park shoot look with hits of a glamour’s yesteryear that as the late autumn light falls gives a glimpse of what she may become. Her brides are wistfully beautiful perhaps dreamy and sometimes even impish, their beautiful artisanal vintage inspired gowns reflect those glamour’s days gone by.

At the table the setting has been created using vintage and antique pieces sourced locally, including antique silverware, glass ware and china.  The stylist has also used found pieces, Objet d’art and vintage fabric to complete the look.  The cake, a hint of the avant-garde sits strikingly with the florist’s eclectic and beautiful mix of autumnal colours and blooms that suggest a glimpse into a past of luxurious opulence and elegance, that of a classic English stately home.
