The Love Letter Styled Shoot at Almonry Barn

Written by Emma Hla

Sometimes it really is best to let a picture talk, and this is exactly what I’ll be doing today.

My words will be kept to a minimum so that you can absorb this truly beautiful styled shoot from Cecelina Photography at Almonry Barn as part of A Beautiful Way Workshop.


Notes from Cecelina Photography

The Love Letter:

“A girl from a rural Italian village meets an English boy and falls in love. They have been away from each other for the last month and Anthony has posted Olivia a love letter every day, to let her know he adores her and can’t wait to marry her. On the morning of the wedding, the day begins with Olivia sitting in the shade of the tree in the orchard, having quiet time for herself and pouring over the last letter from Anthony. A handmade lace robe, soft fabric, tulle and her details sets the scene while the wind softly rustles in the trees…”

Photographed by Cecelina Photography; this Italian inspired styled shoot was dreamed up by Belle and Beau Photography + Naomi Kenton for their A Beautiful Way Workshop this summer. The rustic details of Almonry Barn in Somerset gives a hint of destination weddings; particularly in Italy with it’s gardens, light and fresh food. Soft colours and the wedding dress made specifically for this shoot by Lady Evelyn gives a touch of softness and luxury, interpreted in this fine art photography. The Rose Shed created the rustic flowers with ribbon from Lancaster And Cornish and the styling team creating two different looks for Olivia in her grey wedding dress.
