Notes from the Photographer

Arienne says…

When I saw Ormesby Manor, with its majestic architecture and sprawling gardens, I knew it would be the perfect venue for our Pearls and Prosecco wedding editorial theme. The manor’s classic elegance and serene surroundings provided a versatile backdrop that could accommodate both the intimate and grand elements of the shoot.

I wanted to create something fun, sexy, and on-trend with all my favourite suppliers at the stunning venue in the countryside’s heart. Ormesby Manor set the stage for a styled shoot that perfectly blended elegance with a touch of playfulness.

The theme? Pearls and Prosecco—a celebration of timeless glamour and carefree sophistication. The Pearls and Prosecco-styled shoot at Ormesby Manor blended elegance and fun. It showcased how timeless elements like pearls can be paired with contemporary touches to create an unforgettable experience. From the stunning venue to the intricate details, every aspect was thoughtfully curated by an incredible team of suppliers.

Pure Brides provided stunning dresses ranging from flowing gowns to chic mini dresses, ensuring each model looked effortlessly glamorous. Phoebe Crosby Design added unique veils and bows, complementing the attire beautifully. She also handmade a cute mini dress for the shoot. Pure Suit Hire dressed the gentlemen in sharp, sophisticated suits. Kirstie Barton and Charlene Ann Hair Artistry perfected the models’ looks with flawless makeup and elegant hairstyles.

Belles & Beaus Wedding Styling transformed the venue into a paradise. Every element was meticulously chosen, from luxurious drapes to elegant sofas to enhance the theme. Edwina Goody added a personal touch as the celebrant, bringing warmth and charm to the proceedings.

With the two wedding breakfasts, one with round tables, I wanted it to look intimate but elegant, with the flowers running off the table to the floor and the cake at the end as a focus point. The second look, with long tables, was more rustic, filled with drapes and many pops of colour flowers.

Love Wedding Cakes created two unique and timeless centrepieces that were as beautiful as they were delicious. They featured elegant designs adorned with pearls and stunning flowers. Amber worked closely with Millie Rose to pick flowers to match the table setting. Millie Rose Flowers and Timeless Florals collaborated to provide fresh and faux flower arrangements, ensuring a lush, vibrant look throughout the day.

Choosing the right venue for your day is crucial. Look for a place that offers indoor and outdoor spaces with classic charm and natural beauty. Historic manors, grand estates, or elegant country houses can provide the perfect backdrop. With little touches, you don’t have to go overboard!
